I've been a D.C. fan since Mr. Show originally aired, filling the airwaves...and my heart...with warmth and guffaws. The 2 discs included with "Shut up..." are from two different nights, and for me, the second CD is easily the stronger show. Fearless and confident, Cross is at his best, and most merciless, when he opens a bit with, "I dont know about you, but to me, the Catholic Church has gotten a whole lot sexier lately!" The next several minutes destroy Catholicism, and the myth of Big Religion, in such a vicious, obscene, even absurd way, even some Atheists may find themselves offended. If that happens to you...lighten up. It's comedy, folks. Besides, everything the guy says is on the money, and freaking hilarious to boot. So get your Cross on!
His rants on the Bible, the Catholic Church, and other religion topics are not to be missed. And he is no fan of Dubya, I can promise you that.
At its worst it is mildly entertaining, but at its best it is tears-inducingly funny.
Interesting part: the titles of the track listings have absolutely NOTHING to do with the material on the tracks. Either that is a clever joke from David, a horrible proofreading or editing mistake, or I have a faulty pressing. If it is the first of those three, then I appreciate David's humor even more now.
I thought this was going to be the cd version of his HBO routine, but it's not, it's new material.
Now, answer your telephone.
Having said that however, I am a little disappointed with this set. While there are certainly parts that had me laughing so hard I was spitting my drink, there were just too many parts where I found myself disinterested. Maybe the humor is above my intelligence level or something, but I came away realizing that maybe seeing David and listening to David are two very different things.
There are some good lines that other reviewers already singled out. I was rather struck by how little polished DCs rants are, and how poor the wording ... it makes you realize how gifted (and probably, better prepared) Bill Maher is, covering pretty much the same topics (rednecks, religion, politics) from a similar perspective. DC sounds half prepared, like someone at a party who has told the story to a different group once or twice, knowing the outline and some punchline, improvising the rest in so-so quality.
And one thing sticks out in particular: the utter lack of self-depreciation. There is no reason to humiliate someone for not turning off his/her cell phone ... cell phones are being kept turned on all day, and it's entirely ordinary to forget turning it off in the evening(it's different when you are attending a funeral, or maybe symphony hall with sting playing his lute). He did a bit about all people in Hollywood being laughable failures who keep on fantasizing ... he may be right, but he missed the easy chance to lighten up his vitriol by including himself (as he resided there himself), at least in jest. We are probably not dealing with a nice man here (and maybe even with an arrogant prick). If you think (like so many) that Bill Maher is an arrogant jerk, don't even consider listening to DC.
