3A "very visual" comedy album  Sep 15, 2011 By J. KEMPER "Comedy Album Collector"
So, you know how sometimes in a comedy special the comedian will be talking about something and then demonstrate it using the timeless art of pantomime? Like how certain people walk, or dance, or gesture? And while you're watching the special, it's hilarious, because like all good physical comedy, it has a transformative effect, the performer becomes that other person, or if they're describing a situation, you feel like you're there. BUT, if you're listening to a comedy album all you get is, "So, I go....[silence while the comedian performs their pantomimetic act]" followed by roars and howls of laughter from the comedy club/theatre/arena audience. And it's kind of frustrating as a listener. Well, this happens a lot on this album. It's a good album, if you liked "I Am A Wonderful Man" you'll like this.

3More Michael Ian Black humor  Feb 17, 2012 By Blue
This comedy album follows suit with the man's other comedic work, but the routine loses a good deal of humor in the transfer to audio. Many of his key points are conveyed in physical/visual enactments. Facial expressions, landing poses, and examination stances are lost in the crossover. The album is still very funny if, and well worth a listen, but a video recording of the routine would yield much funnier results for certain.

3Very dissapointed  Dec 02, 2013 By Amazon Customer "Brad J"
This album was very frustrating. Too many of the routines required you to be able to see Michael’s poses or gestures to convey what was going on. Guess what? This is an audio album! I can overlook one possibly two of these but it felt like every other routine required a visual to understand what is going on. If not for those issues, I could have enjoyed the performance. Instead I must label it as mediocre and not worth the money for an audio only comedy album.

2Two Stars  Oct 22, 2015 By david doguet
as everyone else who has reviewed this so far stated, visual comedy in audio format. doesn't work.
