Head and Shoulders Above the Rest...,
This review is from: New In Town (Audio CD)
It's so rare to see a young comedian with the humor, confidence, and superb style Mulaney displays here. His is an original voice evocative of George Carlin, Woody Allen, even a little Maria Bamford, but is uniquely his own. On top of that, New In Town is consistently and thoroughly hilarious. It's the only comedy album I've listened to like a music album, in that I play it over and over hoping the language gets into my bones. Comedians twice his age could take a lesson from this guy about the meticulous crafting of a joke; you can tell no wording is extraneous here. I know I've sucked all the fun out of it, but please, comedy fans, buy this album so Mulaney can make enough money to make another album, which we can all buy, and so on. Major kudos.
