Comedy With Class

"This was a very funny CD. It reflects Flip's brilliance as a comedian and his skillful storytelling ability. Unlike most comedians today who use profanity and insults to get cheap laughs, Flip was one of a kind. CLASS all the way! Normally, once you have heard a comedian's audio recording, you put it away. I have found myself listening to this over and over again. I only wish some of Flip Wilson's albums would become available on CD since many of us do not own turntables. You will find yourself enjoying a "feel good" laugh at this CD that everyone can relate to and not the uneasy laughter we are exposed to today with many of the comedians material. BUY IT!"
Two Flip Wilson CDs compared
(2 out of 5 stars)
"While this CD has a few good laughs, it falls far short of Flip Wilson's later work. The biggest problem I had with this CD is that it cost twice as much as the other Flip Wilson CD offered by Amazon, "Flip Wilson: Funny and Live at the Village Gate," which is an exact copy of this one. The only difference is that the two CDs have different covers. This is particulary disappointing since Amazon offers both as a package deal, suggesting that they contain different routines."
