Editorial Reviews

Mulaney is one of the most talked about new comedians on the scene. A writer for SNL, John cut his teeth touring the country with his unique brand of storytelling and love of the TV show "Law And Order". This album is an hour performance recorded in front of a packed house of rapt listeners.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best John Mulaney Comedy Album Ever August 27, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
After having watched Jonhn Mulaney on VH1 for a few years, I knew I liked the cut of his gib. When I saw his album available on Vine, I was totally stoked. After listening and laughing along with the album I'm happy to say that I wasn't dissappointed. Ironic, sardonic, and other "-ic"y adjectives easily describe his quick wit. It's easy to lump any comic under the age of 40 into the "alternative comedy" genre, though I can't say there is anything "alternative" about him. I've never been exactly sure what people really mean when they use the term alternative comedy. It seems to me that most of todays comics would fit into that category and therefore negate the name. But I digress.

Listen to the entire album, enjoy it and wait for the track labeled "Salt and Pepper Diner", trust me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great comedy, plus the greatest prank story ever! August 13, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
When I selected this CD from Amazon Vine, I gotta admit, I didn't know who John Mulaney was. I just said, "Ooh, comedy CD!" Well, I finally got around to listening to the CD in question, and after just a few minutes, I recognized the routine from catching him on Comedy Central some time not so long ago. I remembered the jokes, because frankly, they were hilarious! As expected, John talks about personal history, experiences, and observations, and the subjects are all over the map, from drag queens to Law and Order, to Scarface and the Old Testament. A couple of the jokes are meant to be seen, unfortunately, like the great bit about the guy on Law and Order who won't stop unloading crates while being questioned by the cops (really funny when John acts it out), but this CD will have you laughing out loud pretty steadily regardless. John gives you a real and honest "regular guy" perspective on everyday weirdness we can all relate to. Love the story about the lady who thought he was chasing her! Of course, the most unforgettable part of John's routine is his big finish, "Salt and Pepper Diner", the tale of the best meal he ever had. It's not what you think. It's actually the story of one of the greatest pranks ever pulled, with the help of Tom Jones' "What's New, Pussycat?". Definitely one of the funniest standup routines I've heard in a while.

5.0 out of 5 stars HILARIOUS!!!! July 16, 2009
By JBizzle
Format:Audio CD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Mulaney's "Top Part" is definately one of the best stand-up CD's to come out of Comedy Central in a while. The entire CD is great, but I challenge anyone out there to get through the "Salt & Pepper" skit without absolutely crying by the time it's over. I haven't laughed this hard since Dane Cook's 1st release. The only bummer about this package is the lack of DVD. I'd hoped that this would've included the Comedy Central "Presents" episode as well. Oh well, as good as this is I'd pay a 2nd time for it. Hands down, no doubt about it, BUY THIS ALBUM!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars I blacked out and accidentally bought this. August 9, 2013

This is the stuff to make you laugh. He has an unusual delivery pattern that makes his stuff surprising. He blind-sides you with his punch-line over and over! Very original stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars John Mulaney is great. August 12, 2013
By Sarah
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
The Top Part starts out a bit slow, but is absolutely worth sticking around for. I really enjoy John Mulaney's style. I've heard him do some improv work on a few podcast episodes, which lead me to seek out his stand up. His set is smart AND hilarious. Definitely will follow up with his other work. Get it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Love It February 20, 2013
By Dony150
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This is without a doubt my favorite comedy cd. Just like a good movie, I can listen over and over and it never gets old. I'd imagine John's sense of humor is broad-based - not overly crude or shocking - but also not overly prudish by any stretch. He's also a great storyteller, but he mixes the normal shorter jokes with like 10 minute stories. The two cd's I have he always ends with a longer story. That's the real talent of a comedian - it's not always the hilarity of the situation, but the way you tell it that matters most.

One of my favs is when he describes a time where he's running to catch the subway late at night with another woman. At least he assumes the train is coming, because the woman started running. Then he realizes that the woman isn't running to catch the subway, but is running FROM him, because he's a scary man, which he never considered. So he says "Nooo, I'm not going to rape you!" Haha, classic.

I'd imagine his story about his favorite meal at the Salt and Pepper diner, the last one on this album, is like his hit single. Another great story.

Really well done, check it out.

5.0 out of 5 stars A new star!
He is one of the bright young stars on the stand up scene. His observational humor is good for audiences of all ages and far more astute than most young comics.
