How can you tell a comedy album is a classic? Not to mention still relevant? Because although it came out in 1973, today's comedians are _still_ stealing jokes from it. <g>
I only recently started buying Robert Klein albums. Now, I could kick myself for missing out on all that great comedy. This is one of his best -- though I can't decide between this one and the more recent "Let's Not Make Love." Oh, and "New Teeth."
Robert Klein was the first comedian to appear in his own live HBO special. This album will show you why they picked him.

If you like standup comedy, but not as dirty as kinison yet not as "weird" as Steven Wright, this album is a must have- it's just Good plain smart and entertaining obsorvational humor... Robert Klein is a master at his field, and I own over 200(!) comedy albums of all genres, so I think you should take my word for it...

I orginally purchased this CD as a vinyl album (remember those?). It is aging better than Klein's next album, "Mind Over Matter" & is relevant to those of us who were kids in the 50's. Robert Klein is as old as or a bit older than the oldest "boomers". We can still remember (feeble though our minds may be) the old spinster teachers, civil defense drills, and the sex impluse that Johnny Mathis songs could incite. It was a foolish, absurd, sometimes scary time. Robert Klein also makes it very funny.

This CD is a must buy for anyone, especially those not familiar with the wonderful comedy of Robert Klein, who Seinfeld called "The Godfather of the modern comedic style." Get it!

I originally had this recording on an LP but had lost it in a move a long time ago. When I rediscovered it on Amazon, I was thrilled.

This is CLASSIC ROBERT KLEIN at his peak performance! His choice of topics, as indicated on the CD's title, are by no means exclusive to that generation. Anyone can appreciate his riffs on tourism, substitute teaching, commercials and more!

If you're a fan of great stand-up, then you must have this CD!

Robert Klein is simply one of the all time great stand-up comics. For me, this was his early masterpiece. I first purchased this in album form back in the 70's. My favorite bit on the album is 'Substitute Teacher', which could possibly be broken down into multiple separate comedy bits on stage. A true inspiration to any aspiring comic, I'm glad he's still with us. Delivery was prompt, I received the cd in perfect condition - great service. Thanks!

Child of the 50's was a favorite of mine way back in the 80's. I had it on vinyl and have wanted it on CD for quite awhile. Amazon.com gives me the opportunity to enjoy one of his best shticks. I wish he would come out with more routines and tour. Scott Noren

This is a very funny album in which Robert remineces about the fifties at least for the most part. Its a good album and youll find yourself rolling on the floor laughing just like I did. You should get it.
