It's easy to forget with Jasper Carrott how funny he is.
It's easy to think him a throw-back from a bygone era of comic's who your parents like (I personally bought this CD for my Dad!).
It's also easy to think that Comedy has evolved beyond one of it's great originals & that it 'ages like cream'.
However, all are faults - listening to this CD again is to be refreshed by a comedian who doesn't *try* to be funny - he IS funny. It's in his very bones (just as it is with Rowan Atkinson & Peter Kay) - that ability to make you chuckle, even when you don't know why.
This CD has some excellent bits - routines about Insomnia, Chinese food in Hong Kong (in a restaurant cum slaughterhouse) & best of all it has his trademark routines about Car Insurance claim forms. It's all good stuff & is richly entertaining.
Two faults I'd pick out, though. First, the CD is one track. All the way through. This means that you cannot separate the routines, there is no index & that if you eject the CD then you have to fast forward all.the.way.back.to.where.you.were (which is time consuming...)
I'd also say that Jasper Carrott isn't necessarily your cutting-edge comic (like Bill Hicks was or Russell Howard/ Frankie Boyle are). The material on this CD isn't really current events & is the sort of thing you listen to for enjoyment, rather than topical gambits.
Carrott, though, was & remains a masterclass in comedy - someone who should be considered a national treasure. Like listening to Billy Connolly, comedy like this makes a refreshing change from ad nauseam comedy & so I commend it as easy listening for your next car journey...
