Synopsis

Amazon.com
Roy D. Mercer's shtick involves phoning unsuspecting folks from his roost at Tulsa, Oklahoma, radio station KMOD and blamin' 'em for one ridiculous thing or another. Mercer's accusations are prefaced by wild yarns and followed by demands for a few hundred dollars. Of course, the people he calls aren't so agreeable and that's when Roy threatens to whup some ass. Mercer's marks respond in wildly different ways. The guy on "Dead Hamster" isn't threatened at all; he can't stop cracking up at Mercer's convoluted tale featuring a stylishly attired, piano-playing hamster. The man at the other end of the line on "Bird Dog" is all macho. It sounds like he can't wait to tangle with Mercer and even gives the professional prankster detailed directions to his house. Each track has a Candid Camera ending where writer-producers Brent Douglas and Phil Stone let on that the call is just a gag. Even these sections provide some added yucks. --Fred Cisterna

CD Reviews

WARNING:YOU MAY WET YOUR PANTS !!!

"There is not a funnier guy on the radio than Roy D. Mercer. Those of us in Tulsa get regular shots of Roy D. & his ass-whoopin' ways. Perhaps, with his CD's going GLOBAL, one day wars might consist of hilarious phone calls such as those on this & other Roy D. Mercer CD's. Be carefull who you invite to listen with since we ALL have a friend (or brother in law) lke Roy D. And yes, it's OK to laugh out loud!!!!!!"

"Roy D. Mercer is a funny guy. Playing jokes on people saying he's going to kick there butt if they dont give him what he wants. Roy is just like The Jerky Boys but much cleaner. BE CAREFULL OF THAT NEXT PHONE CALL IT MAY JUST BE HIM..................."

"My better half and I bought this and some other comedy CDs for a recent road trip. This CD was so funny that I felt it impaired our ability to drive. We found ourselves listening intently and occasionally we'll make jokes with each other about the more memorable lines. It's not exactly high-brow humor, so don't buy this CD if redneck jokes and laughing at prank calls doesn't work for you. However, if you've ever listened to morning radio pranks and enjoyed them, you'll love this CD. It's perhaps the best set of radio pranks I've ever heard. My favorite on this one is the naval recruiter, but it's just one of many, many other hysterical phone calls."
