|Something Like This... The Bob Newhart Anthology
Lowest new price: $8.99
Lowest used price: $3.75
24 routines-*2 1/2 hours*!-from the all-time classic albums Bob recorded for Warner Bros. during the '60s! Remember these brilliant routines? Abe Lincoln vs. Madison Ave.; The Cruise of the U.S.S. Codfish; Ben Franklin in Analysis; The Grace L. Ferguson Airline (and Storm Door Co.); Ledge Psychology; Daddy of All Hangovers , and more.
Part of what Bob Newhart mastered, earlier on stand-up albums like The Button-Down Mind of Bob Newhart and The Button-Down Mind Strikes Back! and later on his long-running TV series The Bob Newhart Show and Newhart, was capturing a brand of Everyman neuroses and heightening it, bringing mundane, common scenarios into the realm of the absurd--and the absurdly funny. Newhart also perfected playing a character involved in a conversation with the other party in absentia, as in one of his most famous routines, "King Kong," in which he plays the part of an Empire State Building security guard who calls his boss the night King Kong makes his famous ascent. ("Yes, sir, I looked in the handbook index under 'unauthorized personnel' and 'people without passes' and 'apes,' and 'ape's toes,' but it's not in there....") Something Like This... is a generous sampling of Newhart's best stand-up bits, and while some of his topics--airplanes, hating to fly--have now been so overdone as to be comic faux pas, rather than making his material seem dated they often serve to demonstrate just how rare a talent he is simply because the routines still elicit involuntary snorts of laughter some 30 years later. --Mark Hunstman

|Richard Pryor - ... Is It Something I Said?
Lowest new price: $4.91
Lowest used price: $1.76
His first album for Warner Bros. reached #12 on the 1975 Billboard charts. Includes observations on funerals, cocaine, romance and race relations, not necessarily in that order.
From the first cut to the last, this rollicking CD is proof of Pryor's immense talent and influence. His impression of a windy preacher ("Eulogy") is the routine that launched a thousand black comics that came after. "Life is not the ultimate test. The ultimate test is whether your ass will survive Death. Nobody we know has passed this test, least of all this sorry mother." Neither imitated nor equaled is Pryor's signature character "Mudbone," who dominates the middle of the CD. Those hysterical long-form routines would be enough to make this an essential pick, but jolts of painful laughter like "Cocaine" and "Just Us" make Is It Something I Said? the favorite of any Pryor-phile. A great recording of a great standup at the height of his powers. --Michael Gerber

How Big'A Boy Are Ya? Volume 6 by Roy D. Mercer
When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using CD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.
Five years and six albums down the road, Roy D. Mercer is still threatenin' to whup some ass. He's up to his old tricks on Volume 6: callin' people up and tellin' 'em they've wronged him in some outrageous way. Of course, he's gonna need a couple of hundred bucks if they want their rear-ends spared. "Bowlin' Ball Fungus" is one of his best pranks yet. Roy D. tells a bowling-alley owner that Mercer's son has contracted a fungus from a bowling ball and now the poor kid can't work. It's quite a standoff between these two. On "Bus Driver," Mercer blames a bus driver from Lebanon with messin' up Mrs. Mercer's Beanie Babies. The driver asks Roy if he's ever been to Beirut. He says, no, but he's whupped some ass in Lebanon, Missouri. This funny CD closes with a musical track by veteran Southern rocker Charlie Daniels. --Fred Cisterna

One of the last great kings of the one-liner left us in 2004, and the world hasn't seemed as funny since. He sure won our respect, and these inspired bits from his stand-up routines show why: What's in a Name; Am I Too Fast for This Table?; I Tell You with Bars I Am Never Lucky; No Respect at All , and more!
