You see that [Explicit] at the end of the title? Pay attention to it. They know what they're talking about. Do not buy this for small children, or listen to it in the car with them. Same goes (possibly) for your grandmother, your boss, or your pastor.

I bought this album after seeing Moshe Kasher in Bo Burnham's list of his favorite comics, if that tells you anything.

That said, I loved this. Moshe Kasher takes on everything from political correctness ("no, YOU can't make fun of retarded people. I'm awesome at it.") to international travel, to getting older, people being offended by his act ("I was just kidding. The whole time."), religion, sex, being Jewish, etc., etc. It probably says something uncomplimentary about me, but my favorite bit is "An Open Letter to Modesto, California," and I laugh myself silly every time I listen to it. Poor Yefet, the gay Ethiopian Jew.

The bookends (or prologue & epilogue, whatever you want to call them) are the only things I didn't really care for. I understand the point, but I tend to skip them after the first listen.

Finally some dark nerdy comedy I can relate to. I met Moshe last year at the DC improv comedy club and his show was hilarious.

I'm a fanatic for comedy albums. After playing some of my favorites to death (Norm Macdonald, Harland Williams, Jim Gaffigan, pretty much everything Louis CK and Dave Chappelle have ever done), I went off in search for more. I found some gold, some pewter, and some plain old garbage. Here are the fruits of my labors.

MOSHE KASHER --> Everyone You Know is Going to Die, Then You Are
This is more than a comedian doing stand-up. There are brief sketches at the beginning and end as well as a few epistolary segments here and there in the middle. If the title of the album isn't a giveaway, Moshe tries to lean on the irony of mortality as both his opener and closer. It doesn't work, mainly because he doesn't actually write any jokes about it. He just reminds everyone they're going to die, as if the juxtaposition of a comedian being morbid is, in itself, supposed to be funny. It's not. Neither is anything else he talks about. The actual stand-up seems half-finished, with pretty much every track on this album feeling like it is all set-up with no punchline. ("Jewmany" is the most obvious example of this.) The other bits are either overwritten (his letter to Modesto) or lazy (he reads spam emails and then makes obvious jokes about them, which is something everyone has been doing with their friends since email spam was invented). Making the whole thing worse, Moshe's on-stage persona feels only a shade lighter than carnival barker. He's got the contrived, overly-polished patter of a used car salesman. Even if your jokes are weak, if you've got a strong, engaging presence it makes up for a lot. Moshe's slickness comes across as plastic and hollow -- like he lacks any kind of personality or presence at all -- and it totally deflates what little humor there is in any of the stuff he says.
