Great Comedy Albums: Mitch Hedberg- Strategic Grill Locations

MUDD1513

One of my all time favorite comedians is Mitch Hedberg. His unique style of comedy resonated with my humor so well it. It’s such a shame that he succumbed to his addictions in 2005. Mitch did leave quite a wonderful legacy of jokes and his style has influenced countless comedians over the years. His first comedy album is one of my favorites, and I listen to it constantly. Strategic Grill Locations was recorded at The Laff Stop Comedy Club in Houston, Texas on September 7, 1999. The album was originally self-published by Hedberg and sold through his website and at shows.  When time came to release his second album, Mitch All Together (another great comedy album), the Comedy Central label also re-released Strategic Grill Locations. This album contains 21 tracks of great jokes, stories and one-liners. During the show Mitch was also accompanied by musician Chuck Savage on a giant standup bass, making Mitch’s delivery all that much more fun and captivating. So take the time today to enjoy some comedy!!!

Great Comedy Albums: Denis Leary- No Cure For Cancer

No+Cure+For+Cancer

 

The 1990’s were a time of growth, change, and anger. Many notable musical groups emerged as well as comedians with a different take on life and the way we all were living. One of those comedians was Denis Leary. After gaining notoriety for his anger filled rants on MTV as well as a regular on the show Remote Control also on MTV, Denis recorded one of his comedy sets in 1992. this set became a legendary album entitled No Cure For Cancer. This album dealt with topics such as vegetarians, smoking, death, and all around political correctness. One of the highlights of this album was the inclusion of the famous “Asshole” song. Denis has been accused of stealing from the likes of the great Bill Hicks, while there are some similarities in the topics, there is a great deal of difference between the two. Denis has gone on to some great things in his career including his role as star, creator, producer and writer on Rescue Me.
