Excellent pretty much sums up John Mulaney’s second stand-up comedy CD and MP3 album New In Town.
It is funny and there is not a single bad bit in the show. New In Town is mostly biographical and observational stand-up. In another comic’s hands this would be standard fodder but Mulaney makes his stand-up fresh. MP3 at Amazon
Mulaney opens with stories about growing up. It includes a very good short bit about growing up with lawyer parents that you wish had been expanded. New In Town also features commentary on the language in Law and Order and why the Cold Case Files crimes were unsolved.
This stand-up comedy CD also features a couple of bits about New York City, dating and relationships, and a great bit about politically correct language. It closes with a long routine about why it is dangerous to try to get prescription drugs if you do not have a good back-up story.
For those who care, John Mulaney New In Town is mostly clean aside from mild expletives like shit and one very appropriate m-f-er.
