Lenny BruceTogetherness – I Am Not A Nut, Elect Me ... LP
Fantasy, 1959. Very Good- ... $9.99
Classic early Lenny Bruce work on Fantasy – a groundbreaking set of tracks that features some great shorter snippets, plus a few of the longer, more drawn-out routines that soon became Bruce's stock in trade during the more controversial years – those live riffs that really set Lenny apart from other comedians, and which set the scene for generations to come! Titles include the 19 minute "The Palladium", plus "Our Governors", "My Trip To Miami", "Esther Costello Story", "White Collar Drunks", and "The Steve Allen Show". LP, Vinyl record album
(Maroon label pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear and a bit of wear on one corner.)

Redd FoxxLive In Las Vegas ... LP
Loma, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Years before Redd Foxx broke onto the TV mainstream in the 70s, he was already drawing big crowds in Vegas – thanks to wonderfully strong material like you'll hear on this LP! Foxx's presentation here is wonderful – careful enough on topics to reach a crossover audience, but also down to earth too – crossing the tracks with bits of wit and wisdom, all delivered with impeccable timing. The subject matter gets a bit off-color at times, but Redd has a beautiful talent for keeping things clean, even when hinting at the dirty – and it's this balance that really makes the record wonderful – enough care for his choice of words to bring some class to his act, and really set him apart from some simple bawdy comedian. LP, Vinyl record album

Mort SahlWay Of Life ... LP
Verve, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
We love Mort Sahl, and this Verve album is a perfect example of why we do. Mort doesn't really tell jokes, so much as he relates stories of his life, politics, and experiences with pop culture – all in a way that was years ahead of his time, and which influenced countless of today's comedians. Both sides of the album sparkle with Sahl's wit, and apart from being funny, they're also a beautiful glimpse into the quirks and neuroses of pre-Vietnam America. Great stuff, and packaged with a cover by David Stone Martin. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear.)

✨✧ Dick GregoryIn Living Black & White ... LP
Colpix, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sharp-edged wit from a young Dick Gregory – and the kind of record that easily set the standard for countless comics to come! The tracks here are mostly free-form – still structured into a few routines, but also pretty easygoing and open – with more of the openly rapping sort of approach also used by Lenny Bruce and Mort Sahl at the time. Gregory's certainly got all the politics of the latter, focused into his own unique perspective – one that was a key force of change in the Civil Rights era. Titles include "The Congo Daily Tribune", "Comedians Of The 60s", "Thoughts On Outer Space", and "Not Poor Just Busted". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Dick GregoryTalks Turkey ... LP
Vee Jay, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Dick Gregory's standout records from the early years – a set that has him talking turkey about a number of subjects that other comedians of the time wouldn't dare touch! Gregory's still quite funny at this point in his career, but also is showing plenty of the politics that would make him a key activist in years to come – and in a way, the album really paves the way for future generations of progressive African-American comedians, but is almost even more amazing for the way it keeps things on the "inside" – and wins over a whole new audience to his ideas in the process. LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label pressing. Cover has wear on the spine and a center split on the bottom seam.)

✨✧ Mickey KatzMish Mosh ... LP
Capitol, Mid 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic work from borscht-belt comedian Mickey Katz – a mix of Jewish melodies, jazz instrumentation, and klezmer influences – all wrapped around song parodies of popular 50s American tunes! The titles say it all – and they include "How Much Is That Pickle In The Window", "Don't Let The Schmaltz Get In Your Eyes", "Sixteen Tons", "That's Morris", "You Belong To Me", and "Home Ofen Range". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original turquoise label pressing – nice and clean, and cover is nice!)

✨✧ Woody AllenStandup Years (Woody Allen/Woody Allen Vol 2/Third Woody Allen Album) ... CD
Colpix/Razor & Tie, Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Incredible early standup work by Woody Allen – a lost side of his genius, represented here on three rare albums from the 60s! If you only know Allen as a director, or actor on screen, this work is a real revelation – recorded at a time when Woody was a young, talented comedy writer for television and just getting initial exposure as a comedian – but already graced with the kind of self-aware wit that we love so much in his funny films from the 70s! There's a freshness here that still stands out – and the package features two full albums issued by the Colpix label, one more issued by Capitol, and some bonus audio excerpts that feature Allen speaking about his standup years.

✨✧ Dick GregoryRunning For President ... LP
Vee Jay, 1964. Used ... Out Of Stock
Dick Gregory never made it to the White House, but the album's title is definitely an indication of his strongly political views during the Civil Rights era – ideas that got him exposure way beyond black comedians of just a few years before, winning over plenty of folks with his natural wit and no-nonsense approach to the issues! The album's a pretty uncut live performance, and offers a great example of the natural charm that Gregory had before enthusiastic audiences in the early days – a perfect balance between his dual roles as an entertainer and a motivating political force. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some splitting on the top seam and a bit of light wear.)

✨✧ Mickey KatzSing-Along With Mickele ... LP
Capitol, Late 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A hilarious parody of Mitch Miller's famous sing-a-long albums from the 50's, done by the crazy comedian Mickey Katz, with his usual Yiddish schmaltz. The record features Mickey leading the sing-a-long with "Der Ganser Gang", on parodies like "I Love You Much Too Much", "My Yiddishe Momme", "Zei Gezunt", and "Die Greene Cuzzine". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a promo sticker on back.)
