Product Description

Recorded in 1977, finally seeing the light of day. Incredible material from Bill Murray, Christopher Guest, Harold Ramis and more. Features the Mr. Rogers skit.

Amazon.com

Though it ran for only a year in the early 70's, The National Lampoon Radio Hour remains one of the most influential–-and consistently hilarious-–efforts at audio sketch comedy. The core of that show became the inaugural class of SNL's "Not Ready For Primetime Players," and many of the performers on this 1977 album (that recycles some material from the radio show to great effect) also went on to fame there, as well as SCTV. The material here is as rapid-fire as it is pointed, ranging from recurring installments of Richard Belzer's prophetic, acid-tongued radio talk show host Dick Ballantine and Christopher Guest's unsettling Mr. Roberts (a dead-on, way-too-kid-friendly take on the late Fred Rogers) to Bill Murray's obnoxiously whining public radio fundraiser and jabs at Nadia Comaneci, mindless radio fodder, hotlines, Mel Brooks' 2000-year old man, and even a Paul Shaffer-produced musical epic, "The Height Report Disco." Though not quite reaching the sublime level of some of the radio show's more surreal moments, it's consistently irreverent, wildly funny, and delivered with machine-gun efficiency, remaining one of the troupe's best satirical collections. --Jerry McCulley

In response to consumer feedback, we have re-mastered (as of February 11, 2005) this CD to eliminate noticeable tics and pops. The quality is vastly improved. Any Amazon.com customer who has purchased this CD and wishes to have it replaced with the new, improved version, should contact David Drozen, President of Uproar Entertainment at uproarcd@aol.com for instructions on what to do.

For those who remember this record, yes it's one of the funniest things National Lampoon ever did. My LP was sounding pretty worn. So much so, in fact, that I dubbed it onto a CD so I wouldn't have to put any more wear and tear on the vinyl while I waited for somebody to put out a real CD. Not only was this CD *not* made from the master tapes, it wasn't made from a tape at all. It was mastered from an LP (just like my homemade CD), apparently with no effort to clean up the surface noise or ticks and pops. 5 stars for content, but zero stars for not going back to the master tapes. Let's hope Uproar does a better job in a few months when they reissue Goodbye Pop.

Format: Audio CD
If the title of this album doesn't serve as an adequate admonition of what's in store, the first track will: "Hey, look out for that s%#t on the floor... Whoops! Ha ha ha... Well, we've got a filthy show for you tonight!" If you're easily offended, deeply religious, or have an otherwise sensitive disposition, you may want to steer clear. However, If you're a real sicko, like me, you'll not only find this album laugh-out-loud funny on your first listen, you'll enjoy listening again and again as you discover its many subtleties. Some of the tracks, like Christopher Guest's spoof on Mr. Rogers, I simply never grow tired of listening to.

I must however, express my disappointment with the quality of this recording. When this album was released in 1977, it only existed on vinyl. (I don't believe that it was ever released on cassette or 8-track.) Since then, fans have tolerated the crackles and pops. I was thrilled to see that this album was finally released on CD. Unfortunately, not only is it NOT digitally re-mastered, its source material is a vinyl record, complete with the same old crackles, pops, and surface noise! While the source vinyl is in pretty good condition no one even bothered to go back and remove the pops. I spent about an hour doing so with some inexpensive software and it made a real difference. Another disappointment with this CD is that the track markers aren't accurate. When you rip this CD to your computer for listening on your portable device, you'll notice that at the beginning of each track there's a little chunk of the end of the previous track... very annoying but fixable with basic audio editing software.

I purchased this CD, new, on July 17th,2006. It is a great collection of classic comedy, however, Amazon is still shipping the copies made before 2005, mastered from vinyl with scratches, hisses and all. I solely wanted to listen to 'Mr. Roberts 1" with the egg-a-muffin' skit and it skips over most of this skit. The promise by Mr. David Drozen to replace it, rings hollow. Neither from him or Amazon can I get a 'clean, remastered', 2005 version. So, I'll send it back for a refund. It's a shame because the material is so classic. I was going to buy the box set, next. Oh, well.

"That's Not Funny, That's Sick" is the best comedy album ever made. Period.

I was pre teen when my oldest brother owned this "record." I consider is one of the best comedy albums of all time. It is not well known by all, which makes it even better. From the Mr. rogers skit to gassed whales and F@#$'in orange juice!!!! You will laugh till it hurts. If you love classic lampoon/second city style humor, you must have this album.

i'll never forget the first time i heard this album.it was in the mid 80's and i was about 11.my older brother had a really lousy copy of it on tape.but the condition of the tape didn't matter.i laughed til i was sore.i played it for my other brother and one of my childhood friends.we couldn't get through the confession part without losing it.we had to keep on playing that bit several times til we could silence our laughter and hear the whole bit.what fond memories i have of this album.a must for anyone old enough to understand and appreciate what real comedy is and how real comedians did it.

I heard this album in college, back when it was an LP (yeah, I'm old). I spent the next 20 years, off and on, trying find it, either on LP or CD. I finally went on line and found it on Amazon. Listen to the Olympic gymnast (little Nadia Commaneci) or the Mr. Rogers skits.

Awesome. Classic. Old school comedy.
