CD Reviews

Richard Jeni is a very funny man
Christopher Hivner | Dallastown, PA USA | 02/03/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Richard Jeni is one of the funniest comedians you will ever hear and this CD has a nice collection of his bits. He can be quite crude but also very smart. His mastery of words is on par with George Carlin. Favorite parts on this CD would be "Women Smoke Cigars?", "Fred Robster", "Women: They Came from a Drying Planet" and "Cooking with Bill"."
Jeni's humor remains fresh, relevant and brilliant.

"Richard Jeni's Greatest Hits is a marvelous final act to the first stage of Jeni's stand-up life. Here, he brings 10 years worth of his best material to bear, with pointed observations about men, women and life in general. Make sure you skip right to "Fred Robster", "Colonel Saunders", "Bill the Belching Gourmet" along with "Moisture". But, as always with Jeni, you'll have your own favorites you'll want to hear over and over. Jeni has a genius for observing life, then helping us look at it with a New Yorker's slant and flair. Sure, if you've seen Jeni you've heard these bits before. Yet, listening to them again doesn't dull them---they instead remain fresh, vital and leave you convulsed with laughter every time. This seems like a fitting place for Jeni to retire these bits from his act, and move onto more fertile ground. And "Greatest Hits" will be a CD you'll cherish, along with others that have become classics over the years. Bill Cosby's "Wonderfulness" and "To Russell My Brother Whom I Slept With," or George Carlin's "AM/FM" and "Class Clown" immediately come to mind. "Greatest Hits" is the material that's given Jeni such a loyal following, and is why he is established as one of America's truly brilliant stand-up comedy minds."
Not all of his greatest bits...

"Missing in particular is the Jaws 4 routine and a few notable others but still a very solid stand up. Richard Jeni is a better stand up than Jerry Seinfeld will ever be but Jerry had a hit show and Richard's, well, sunk. Hopefully a greatest bits 2 will come out as Jeni has a large amount of material unlike many other standup comics. Also, one reviewer may have laughed for 70 minutes but this album is only about 45 minutes or so long. Still, a must have for Jeni fans."
