Comedy Reviews - CD - Dan Gabriel - The Vowel Diet

The Vowel Diet
The Vowel Diet
Dan Gabriel
Comedy MP3 album
Independent 2017
Available through comic s website

The Vowel Diet is the third Dan Gabriel comedy album I have had the pleasure to listen to. Gabriel is out to entertain his audience and he is very good at it. This means there is nothing political or controversial on this MP3 album but Gabriel does an eye for some pretty accurate social commentary when he feels like it such as when he discusses the disappearance of some old fashionned common names.

The biggest difference between early albums and this one is Gabriel has gotten married and works a little blue.

On this pretty solid album, the bits on the History Channel and Food Shows are the ones I enjoyed best. I was a little miffed by how Gabriel easily accepted people talking during his set, choosing to interact with them instead of shutting them down. Then again, I am in a foul mood these days so it is probably wishful thinking on my part since he is not that kind of comic.

If you are looking for some fun stand-up that bears repeated listenings but does not challenge your views of the world, The Vowel Diet is pretty consistent.

Giant Robot: independent comedy CD is one of the better I have heard in a while

Baby For Sale: Dan Gabriel does very funny light but not lightweight stand-up comedy.
