Timeless humor
Teresa Heinrich | Morgan Hill, CA | 10/09/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Although some of the topical references (e.g. to mid-70s rock groups) may not be familiar to listeners, the humor shines through most of the routines. "Re-writing the National Anthem" is HILLARIOUS; Albert Brooks impersonates various groups who sing their candidates for the new national anthem. You can listen to this repeatedly and laugh each time. Only one vulgarity in the album -- the word "s---" and it's used in context. Refreshing to hear humor that doesn't rely on bathroom or bedroom jokes, and instead offers clever insights."
As we stand here waiting for the ballgame to start...

"Albert Brooks is known today as a film director and comedic actor, but he did stand up comedy at the beginning of his career. This CD features a performance from 1973, where he tells humorous remembrances of being an opening act for Neil Diamond and Richie Havens, and does a hilarious routine about a hypothetical open audition to write a new National Anthem. Other than the live performance, he throws in a few bonus bits, including two (intentionally) unfunny prank phone calls. The album ends with "Comedy Minus One", in which Albert plays one half of a comedy team and the listener performs the other half (a script is provided and there are pauses in the routine where you are supposed to say your lines). It you like the films of Albert Brooks, you will probably enjoy this album, too."
