Recently en route to a wedding, my girlfriend and I purchased a standup CD entitled Comedy’s Dirty Dozen at a gas station. What can I say, we love goofin’. I’ve been doing comedy for nine years and I did not recognize one person on the CD. Not even in that ohhhh-yeah-I’ve-heard-about-them way that you do when someone mentions an indie band you’ve never heard of. We thought it would be hilarious in a terrible sort of way, but it was just terrible. Just really racist and sexist and cheap and I think most of the sets we’re recorded in the 90’s, hence the SAXOPHONE SOLOS IN BETWEEN COMEDIANS. Here’s one of my favorite terrible jokes.
“I like rock n’ roll. All the old bands are touring like the Rolling Stones, they’re touring again. They’re getting a little old though, don’t you think? Whose going to sponsor them next tour, Depends? (BIG LAUGH) When they sing about brown sugar, they’ll be talking about what’s in their pants! (EVEN BIGGER LAUGH)”
Comic friends, I’m going to give this CD to one of you on your birthday.
