5.0 out of 5 stars Almost drove me off the road ... March 19 2000
Format:Audio CD
... So, I pulled over so I could keep laughing.
While it should appeal to a wide audience, most anyone who grew up in NY during the 40's, 50's or 60's will be in pain laughing.
Crystal is the link between the old style of comedy and the new and this tape shows why. Even when he is being coarse, he does it with elegance and humility. Brilliant!
Excepting the first track (which didn't do much for me) this recording is a howl.

3.0 out of 5 stars Don't get me started! March 13 2005
By Johnny Heering - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a low price reissue of Billy Crystal's 1985 album (his only album, as far as I know). Most of the tracks here are taken from a live standup performance at The Bottom Line in New York City. It's pretty funny stuff. But the highlight is the studio recording "I Hate When That Happens", which features Billy and Christopher Guest doing their "Willie & Frankie" characters from Saturday Night Live. There is also a song by "Fernando Lamas" called "You Look Marvelous", which is pretty funny. The album closes with "Fernando's Special Gift", which is an answering machine message you could actually use on your machine, if you wanted. Billy's fans should enjoy this album. And did I mention that it's cheap?

5.0 out of 5 stars Still Mahvelous after all these years April 23 2008
By smurray - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this on tape when it came out in 1985. I was in high school.
I didn't grow up in New York - in fact I'm a white protestant female from the South - and I still found it hilarious! Even after 23 years (yikes!) it still comes to me at odd times (usually when I'm having some eggs - see Howard Cosell sketch) and I just start quoting. Of course my kids don't get it, but my husband does and we have a good laugh. A high point in MY entertainment history! Love it!

2.0 out of 5 stars Dated Oct. 30 2013

I am a big Billy Crystal fan, but the material in Mahvelous is dated and not particularly funny. I have to give this a big thumbs down.
5.0 out of 5 stars A classic Aug. 28 2013

You had to be alive when Fernando was kickin' . . . with Billy Crystal when Saturday Night Live was at its best.

"You look mah-velous, dahling." The phrase went viral. Everybody was trying to do it, but only Crystal could do it like Fernando, the Latin lounge lizard.

In addition to the lead skit Crystal brings humorous insights into growing up Jewish in Brooklyn, life with his flatulent grandfather, and "Howard Cosell" interviews with with heavyweight boxers Mohammed Ali ("May I call you Mo?") and Leon Spinks.

Get it. You'll LYAO.
