Absolutely Fabulous

"Anyone who has seen Bruce's KITH skits or monologues will know that his humor is an aquired taste. No, it's not for everyone. But for people like me, he's the funniest "comedian" around. I put comedian in quotation marks because Bruce and his brand of humor really defy classification.Shame-Based Man captures Bruce at his best. It can't really be called a comedy album. Yes, it is definetly funny. But not every track or moment on the CD is aimed at making you laugh. Rather, this CD is more of a stream of concious project in many aspects. You feel like you've been allowed to step inside Bruce's mind for a few precious minutes. Bruce doesn't aim his wonderful wit at far-out premises, but rather he seems obsessed with the ordinary and small things in life. Take "Answering Machine," an ode to that wonderful invention that people seem to use to keep the people they know away from them. And the KITH classic "Daves I Know" about, well, all the Daves he knows.There's some very good introspective pieces here to, like the thought-provoking "Vigil" which is about the death of Kurt Cobain. Also, "Stalking" is a creepy yet funny little bit about a woman running into the man who is stalking her and having a chat with him.I really can't do this album much justice through a review though, so it."
Bruce is the most wonderoous man alive

"He tackles every subject so humerously and you can almost picture his facial expressions. I am a little saddended that the CD lacks the terrier song, but it's still very very good. A lot of his humor is pretty basic stuff, but everyone can relate and understand. "Our Love" is a riot....there are so many lines in that i would use. "Answering Machine" could not be any more true about how much people value their answering machines. "That's America" is so brilliant and satiric ( a word?). This CD is a riot! A must have for *anyone*"
Just the sound of Brucio's voice

"Just the sound of Bruce McCulloch's voice was enough to make me go out and buy this cd-joygasm! This cd reflects Bruce's intelligence and his dry and insighful sense of humor. The music is just as amazing as Bruce's poetry. if you have enjoyed Bruce's monologue's on KITH, then you will love this cd! -katie"
