When you think comedy, you don't automatically think Bobcat Goldthwait (unless you've forgotten that it isn't 1986 anymore). In fact, Bobcat himself brings up that point on this album. And that's what makes this album work. Bobcat doesn't pretend that he's at the peak of his career right now. He doesn't ignore those little embarrassing moments, like setting the Tonight Show on fire. Rather, he uses all that to fuel his comedy, and the result is one hysterical album.
Bobcat hits all the low points in his career (being fired from Hollywood Squares, Shakes The Clown, the Tonight Show incident), and he has fun with it. The key to this album's success is that Bobcat doesn't wallow in self-pity, instead he gets us to laugh with him. I put this CD on during a long road trip, and it was so funny, I actually listened to the entire thing twice. If you're a little hesitant to buy an album by a comedian who's considered a has-been, you should definitely take the risk. This album is so good, it makes me wonder why Bobcat hasn't been more successful in recent years.
