Dave Waite: “Kaboom” (Review)

About halfway through Kaboom (available July 19), comedian Dave Waite pointedly declares, “I need a hobby.” Virtually obsessed with “ladies,” “titty bars” and all things porn, the Cincinnati native’s 41-and-a-half minute debut album covers a variety of topics,...

Review: David Huntsberger’s “Humanitis”

Review: Andy Ritchie’s “King-Ding-A-Ling”

By | May 16, 2011 at 1:05 pm | No comments

Jim David is a comedian. Clearly. The man has the confidence, charm and control that mark a veteran of the field; he's polished from years of experience. But to say he is clearly a comedian is also a critique. Under all of the experience lie jokes that while skillfully...

By | August 29, 2010 at 9:36 pm | 6 comments

While anyone can point out hypocrisy, and maybe even get a laugh, it takes a special kind of mind to mix the sardonic with the silly, the way Glenn Wool does on his album, Let Your Hands Go (Stand-Up! Records.) Wool doesn’t just touch on heavy topics, but rather dives, full...
