Synopsis

Album Description
Nothing quite captures the full experience of Rick's performance artistry like seeing him live. But if you can't do that, the album...is the next best thing. Rick Shapiro is not merely a stand up comedian. He doesn't really have a routine, per se. Really he just gets up on stage and explodes into a sort of stream of consciousness rant. During his performances, Rick unleashes the many characters living in his brain in a rapid fire purging that almost comes across as an assault. The former junky/prostitute turned actor-comedian has been called the Lenny Bruce of the East Village and it's a name that suits him. Fortunately for Rick, though, he is not living in the repressed age that censored and eventually ruined Lenny Bruce. Rick's act is so obscene and raunchy that it makes his predecessors look like girl scouts. But his humor doesn't just rely on obscenity. It's quick witted social criticism... with the occasional reference to fisting. 5.0 out of 5 stars...Rick Shapiro RULES!!!!,

"Rick Shapiro's album "Unconditional Love" isn't new but I just listened to it again and was reminded of how damn funny it is. Nothing quite captures the full experience of Rick's performance artistry like seeing him live. But if you can't do that, the album (or maybe his dvd if you can find it) is the next best thing.
