Pigmeat Markham

Chess, Early 60s. Near Mint-
Pigmeat Markham's first album – recorded live at the Regal in Chicago, and featuring his then-famous "trial" routine – plus a number of other similar gigs that come off equally well. There's a very nice balance here between the live, "party" type style of comedy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Steve Martin

Wild & Crazy Guy
Warner, 1978. Near Mint- Gatefold
Steve Martin at the height of his powers – when he was hitting on all burners with his TV specials, nightclub appearances, and radio airplay. The album's big selling point was the single "King Tut" – Martin's ridiculous tribute to the late great pharaoh, whose treasures were ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dick Gregory

Talks Turkey
Vee Jay, 1962. Very Good
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Murphy

Columbia, 1983. Very Good+
A bit dated at this point, but it still has it's moments. With "Singers", "Ice Cream Man/Shoe Throwin' Mothers", "Modern Women", "The Barbecue", "The Fart Game", "Politics/Racism", "Languages" and "TV". LP, Vinyl record album
Philadelphia International, 1976. Very Good+
One of the strangest albums on Philly International – especially when you consider what a classy output most of the label was focused on! Dap Sugar Willie was bad-rapping comedian – in the mode of Redd Foxx, who endorses Willie on the back on the album – and here, he's doing ... LP, Vinyl record album

Monty Python

Final Rip Off
Virgin, 1970s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
... LP, Vinyl record album
Rhino, 1940s/1950s/1960s/1970s/1980s. Very Good+ 6LP Box Set
... LP, Vinyl record album
Shock, 1971. Very Good+
Wild bit of insanity from Chicago! DJ Herb Kent was one of the biggest jocks on the city's classic WVON radio station, and the Electric Crazy People were a set of little skits that Herb did with comedian Rudolph Browner which were played in between songs on the station's airwaves. The material is ... LP, Vinyl record album

Robin Williams

Reality...What A Concept
Casablanca, 1979. Very Good+
... LP, Vinyl record album

George Crater

Out Of My Head
Riverside, Early 60s. Very Good+
... LP, Vinyl record album

Henry Blair & Billy Bletcher/Billy May

Rusty In Orchestraville
Capitol, Late 40s. Very Good+
A classic kid music package! Great cover image, too. LP, Vinyl record album
Fax, Early 60s. Near Mint-
... LP, Vinyl record album
National Radio Theatre Of Chicago, 1979. Very Good+
... LP, Vinyl record album
La Val, Late 60s. Very Good
Another raw party record from the Funky Tramp, Jimmy Lynch. While not as over the top as Dolemite or other Rudy Ray Moore records, there's still some choice moments of blue comedy on here. LP, Vinyl record album

Doug Clark & the Hot Nuts

Homecoming With Doug Clark
Gross, Late 60s. Sealed
One of Doug Clark's bawdy frat rock-soul party LPs on the Gross label – with his trademark "blue" material for adult listeners, backed up by raunchy R&B riffing! The general style's a bit dated, but it's also the kind of album that paved the way for Rudy Ray Moore in the 70s. ... LP, Vinyl record album
World Pacific, Early 60s. Very Good+
Wild work from the legendary Lord Buckley – a key postwar figure of hipness on the west coast, delivering routines that include "The Naz", "The Gasser", "Supermarket", Willie The Shake", "God's Own Drink", and "Subconscious Mind". LP, Vinyl record album

La Wanda Page

Sane Advice
Laff, 1979. Near Mint-
... LP, Vinyl record album
Passport, 1976. Near Mint-
A less-remembered post-Python moment – and kind of a precursor to The Rutles too! LP, Vinyl record album
Charisma, 1972. Very Good+
... LP, Vinyl record album

Ernie Kovacs

Ernie Kovacs Album
Columbia, Early 60s/1976. Near Mint-
An audio document of the genius of the Ernie Kovacs TV show of the early 60s – served up with almost as much dynamic energy as the show itself! Given the lack of visuals, the focus here is mostly on dialogue-heavy routines – so there's less of the wordless musical numbers that are ... LP, Vinyl record album

National Lampoon

Radio Dinner
Blue Thumb, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold
Great work from the classic days of the National Lampoon Radio Hour – a really wonderful show that ran on FM radio, and parodied many of the ideals and themes of the post-hippie generation! The work here is done in an underground hip mode that would show up more strongly in the mainstream on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1960. Near Mint-
... LP, Vinyl record album

Marshal Efron

Nutrino News Network
Polydor, 1972. Very Good+
A really strange little record – partly a comedy set, but with a lot more going on too – including songs and sounds – a bit like some of the Albert Brooks albums of the early 70s! LP, Vinyl record album
BBC/Pye (UK), 1970. Very Good
Some of the finest moments from the Monty Python Show – including "Flying Sheep", 'Trade Description Act", "Nudge Nudge", "Interesting People", "The North Minehead Bye-Election", "Me Doctor", "Pet Shop" and "Self ... LP, Vinyl record album

Island, 1973. Near Mint-

Katz Pajamas
Capitol, Late 50s. Near Mint-
Hilarious stuff – bedtime stories from the great Mickey Katz! LP, Vinyl record album
Colpix, Mid 60s. Sealed

Capitol/World Pacific, Late 50s. Used
Jewish entertainer/musician Mickey Katz has been getting a lot of attention recently – whether it be from modern projects to revive his music, like Don Byron's from a few years ago, or from press in places like The Village Voice, dealing with the resurgence in Jewish cultural identity. ... CD
Rhino, 1961. Used
