I first bought the tape nearly ten years ago, and laughed hysterically then. Now, a decade later, the material is still as relevant and funny as ever. The key to good comedy is making the material relevant to the audience, by discussing subject matter to which everyone can relate. Steven Wright finds a way to do this with some of the the most outlandish subject matter you'll ever hear, (ie. elevators in the middle of the desert, poison ivy of the brain, a pony in his apartment) - all the while making you think "It's so simple - why didn't I think of that?"
With the exception of a few sexual references (nothing explicit) - the material is very clean. No swearing at all!
This is not the kind of comedy CD you'll listen to once, then put aside and forget about. There are so many jokes, you could never remember all of them - so every listen is almost like the first. This CD is well worth the purchase.
This album is full of hilarious stuff I don't really want to give anything away for future listeners but this album is very funny. Yesterday I......no that wasn't me! is one small example but I don't want to wreck the experience for anyone else. Steven Wright covers a vast range of topics from girlfriends, hitchhiking, his diary he kept as a baby, parking to pretty much every part of day to day life.
Parents note this is clean comedy, there is no swearing on this album at all so all ages can enjoy the magic of Steven Wright. This album is usually pretty cheap but worth full price. Definitely the best stand up comedian I've ever heard. He's the "Weird Al" of the stand up world. Buy this album.
