Some golden moments, but mostly predictable
on September 23, 2011
There are three very funny, brilliant and memorable jokes on here. The trouble is, he isn't convincing me he's really like this. For one-liners, Rodney Dangerfield could actually kill an audience during a whole set, without bringing it to your attention, and you never knew where he was going. The trouble with AJ's persona, is that the jokes get very predictable. After listening for 10 minutes, you realize that all of his jokes are going to be like this. I noticed another reviewer mentioned that you need to think to get these jokes, which is funny, because I thought of the punchlines a fair percentage of the time before he even said them. And who is the clown who produced this? They included an audience interaction that clearly requires visualization and makes no sense to the listener. And that just sucks b/c it wastes my time and bandwidth. Has some really funny moments, but...not enough for a whole cd.
