I recently purchased Todd Glass' new album, "Thin Pig." I know a comedian strikes me when I laugh out loud uncontrollably and multiple times while riding on the subway. I even irritated my wife while listening to it on my iPod. I kept laughing while she was trying to do some work. That's like being in summer school and hearing the kids playing on the playground outside your classroom window.
Abbi said, "I like listening to comedy cds, but I find that a lot of contemporary comedians are visual, and it would be better to see them than hear the audience laugh at a face they're making. Mitch Hedberg made good listening albums."
Look at it this way, it's better to hear an ugly comedian than have to see them. Some comedians are more fun to watch than listen to, but sooo many make great albums. We're really in a bit of a Renaissance when it comes to comedy albums. The 80s and 90s had nowhere near the amount of albums the 60s, 70s, and today have.
Headlines are here to stay:
Eli Manning signed a new contract making him the highest paid player in the NFL. Unfortunetly all that money can't make his face look like a broke hill-billy.
Paula Abdul is leaving American Idol. In order to replace all of her wit, charm, and natural charisma the producers have decided to replace her with a block of cheddar cheese.
Jon and Kate returns, this time split up! Wow, seeing two overweight small town rubes return to the dating scene, sounds like they'll be filming exclusively at the Berks County Dairy Queen.
Anybody notice how "Jon and Kate" has dropped the "plus Eight" in all the promotional talk? Just like a real life divorce, the kids become irrelevant and the balding dad buys a motorcycle.
Here's a little taste of Todd Glass:
Next time: Batman was king when I was in 3rd grade! And I always wanted that soundtrack! Tomorrow we'll talk about this.
