5.0 out of 5 stars one of the most original comics ever, 6 Aug 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: E=mo2 (Audio CD)
If you've never heard this man, let alone seen him on t.v. when he was at his best, just buy this. Don't mess about - buy it. This comic is really one of the most original ever to walk the planet. It's a pity you can't see him as he performs, dressed in a weird almost child like garb, squirming and ruffling his hair as he gives up his most deeply buried thoughts about his place in life, and who shows a complete misunderstanding of the normal social mores. It's clear that his character was brought up by pretty weird parents and that he has developed into some kind of misanthrope , but he delivers his spiel in such a way the absurd and bizarre becomes the most normal things in his view, and vice-versa.And very,very funny One of my favourite bits is where he says his father told him that whatever he does he's not to open the cellar door - "but when I did I saw things I'd never ever seen before,beautiful things -trees grass, birds" (paraphrased). Or when he talks of his family "My brother says hello......so...hooray for speech therapy".
There aren't many comics who deserve the term genius, but I think Emo is one of them.
