Child of the 50's
SirGeorgeMartini | Chihuahua Legs, Wyoming | 06/21/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Robert Klein has not received the recognition he deserves, but at least Jerry Seinfeld has cited him as a one of his influences. Many of his routines are of their time, but they still are still funny and I think they have aged better than most of his peer's material (especially Woody Allen's albums). Although I've seen many skits based on "The Final Record Offer", Klein's performance is still the best. "In Praise Of The Harmonica" has one of the most creative uses of the harmonica ever recorded.
World's Funniest Record Of All time
Lance Drake | Santa Fe, NM United States | 11/20/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Please excuse the hyperbole - but this series of Klein's comedic writing is, to my taste, the funniest stuff ever conceived. 'Juergen's Myasthenia', '100% undetectable hairpiece', 'Ever Record Ever Recorded' EVERY BIT on the album 'The None News News' - EVERYTHING IS ABSOLUTELY CLASSIC! I laugh every time I hear this work. Robert Klein has more wacky, kooky, zany, stuff crammed into this album than ANY other comedian... EVER... on any other album. THIS IS TRULY WHAT HUMOR IS ALL ABOUT... Sorry for the shouting - but I'll never hear anything else as funny, as long as I live. God bless Robert Klein - he is the greatest of all time."
More dated than "Child of the 50's" -- but still funny
Anne M. Marble | MD, USA | 06/26/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album didn't age as well as "Child of the 50's." But that didn't stop it from being funny. My nephew, who was born about ten years after Watergate, still laughed at most of the tracks. And even my _mother_ laughed at "Obligatory Drug Bit: First Time Stoned." Also, I still think of Robert Klein's ine "Shovel please!" every time I read (or write) B.S.Besides, the song "Mind Over Matter" is one of my favorite Robert Klein songs ever. Anybody who had to cope with being outside of the "in" crowd in school will appreciate this one.Anne M. Marble -- Reviewer, All About Romance"
