"I found out about this CD when Tom Mabe was a guest on the Walton and Johnson radio show -- the bits they discussed were funny enough that I had to track the disc down. It's absolutely hysterical. Perhaps I'm drawing a bit of sadistic pleasure from this, since the victims are telemarketers and therefore creatures I find hard to sympathize for, but this is a lot funnier to me than other crank call CDs. I just wish there was more on the disc, the running time is a bit short. Also, the song at the end of the album, "Pick One," wasn't really that funny, and had nothing to do with the theme of the rest of the disc. It's inclusion seemed pretty nonsensical to me.I was surprised to discover that this set also includes a DVD with a few Mabe stand-up routines and about 20 minutes of live antics previewing "Mabe in the USA" (I couldn't tell if this was a TV show or special he has in the works). The "Mabe in the USA" segment was funny -- some hidden camera stuff, some pranks... a lot of the same kind of humor as you'd see on shows like "Jackass," only not as crude or potentially dangerous. Much funnier, in my opinion.Between the CD and the DVD, overall, I think this is a great value."
Funnier than revenge

"A Wake Up CAll for Telemarketers takes Tom Mabe's last record and goes to new hysterical heights. Anyone who has ever answered a telemarketers phone call can live vicariously through Mabe's antics. The calls where Mabe stays at the same hotel as a telemarketers convention and proceeds to harass various rooms at the wee hours of the morning is comic genius."

"Tom, I will buy each and every CD you ever put out, even if it's just more phone calls made at 3AM to telemarketers. Can I please pay your long-distance bill?"
