From the Back Cover
Literate, intelligent, and yes, funny, NPR plays host to the brightest personalities in the comedy world. From legends Jonathan Winters, Mel Brooks and Carl Reiner to contemporary favorites Sarah Silverman, David Sedaris and Larry David, here is one collection that will keep you listening with a smile.

I'm a big fan of the pop culture stores broadcast on the various NPR shows, and particularly interviews done by Scott Simon. The other notable piece on this collection is the first track of Disc One - an interview by Simon with Dame Edna. Slightly longer than the Winters interview, Dame Edna (Barry Humphries) continually says things so funny that Simon breaks up on the air. If laughter is contagious, it's certainly obvious here. I found myself breaking into laughter along with Simon.
If you want interviews on the business of Comedy, there's a better collection, culled from "Fresh Air with Terry Gross" (full title "Fresh Air: Laughs with Terry Gross" - also released by Highbridge Audio. (Note: there are no "Fresh Air" interviews on "Driveway Moments).
So, a better title for this set would be: "A Sampler of moments with comedians appearing on NPR magazine shows". I enjoyed it but it could have been better.
They're also not so good for family listening. A piece on Pryor delves into the use of the "n word" going back and forth between using the word itself and the euphemism. Billy Connolly talks about his childhood sexual molestation and also the "dance of the flaming [...]" whereby some flaming paper is actually held in one's rear. Hmm.
It wasn't awful and I did listen to all 2.5 hours but will be glad to return it to the library and happy I didn't spend my hard-earned money on it.
Not at all as advertised.

This didn't meet the expectation set up in description. If you do get it though, I liked the 2nd disc much better than first .Published 3 months ago by Alison
Having had several "driveway moment" versions, I wasn't as fond of this one as others, yet it had many good stories.Published 13 months ago by Cassandra Ann Major
