"I remember this album distinctly, because it was one of Dice's first easily found releases, at at time when his records (and comedy records in general) did not sell as much as most comedians wished.It was also a weak effort, especially in comparison to "Day the Laughter Died", which was a gutsy, comedy tour-de-force. While you can't fault him for being able to pack MSG, comedy is like Industrial music; anything more than 500 people in the room and the effect is jarring. Here, he can't possibly maintain the intimacy he gets from a dingy nightclub (listen to side two to see what I mean), and the bits suffer. Side one is a mob laughing because the guy next to them is laughing. Side two is people laughing because the material actually works. That's a big difference when it comes to comedy.I'd actually only recommend this album to people who already own his first two albums + 40 Too Long, but not to first-time dicers. It's far too hit & miss for the uninitiated."

"this disc made me laugh as hard as i did when i first heard it years ago. my wife pretends not to like the diceman, however she was the one who got me tickets to see him this march. he has lost a bit of his edge in real life, thank god for the recordings. the people who hate the diceman are only mad because his observations are so true"
