Mike Nichols and Elaine May were a comedy team for a short time – from 1957 through 1962. Their recorded output was tiny – just three LP’s: Improvisations To Music (1959), which, powered by the team’s television appearances, became a ‘top forty’ LP; An Evening With Nichols and May, which contained excerpts from their hit Broadway show of 1960, and their final record, Nichols and May Examine Doctors, from 1961.
Nichols and May were improvisational situation comedians: sophisticated, funny, and cool. They appealed not only to adults, but also to kids. Steve Martin says that each routine was “…like a song – you could listen to it over and over. I used to go to sleep to them at night.”
The ten sketches on the final album, …Examine Doctors, were originally recorded for “the greatest show in network radio history” – Monitor, an NBC extravaganza that ran pretty much the entire weekend, pretty much across the country, from 1955 through 1975. At its peak, the monitor beacon could be heard for forty hours, from 8 a.m. Saturday morning through midnight Sunday. If you’d like to listen to excerpts from Monitor, you’ll need Real Player and Dennis Hart’s Monitor site.
Nichols and May were Monitor regulars for a couple of years. The ten tracks on the …Examine Doctors LP are but a small fraction of their work for Monitor. The rest remains unreleased, which is a shame, because it may well be some of their very best work. See if you agree.. Isnt'LifeTerrible

Andrew Dice Clay - Dice 1989

On: Sunday, February 17, 2013

Andrew Dice Clay
Andrew Clay Silverstein
Sep 29 1957 -

For a few years, starting in 1989, comedian Andrew Dice Clay was one of the biggest stars around. He was packing arenas on tour, and few standup comics have ever reached that level of fame. But just as quickly as his star rose, it burned out after a controversial appearance on Saturday Night Live and the box-office failure of 1990's The Adventures of Ford Fairlane (although it has become something of a cult film). He was so big that an entire episode of the sitcom Night Court was built around the criticism of a character blatantly based on him. Clay's real name is Andrew Clay Silverstein, and he had small supporting TV and movie roles before his standup career took off. His "character" -- alternately known as just "Dice" or "the Diceman" -- is a leather-clad, chain-smoking, macho Brooklyn jerk spewing misogynistic, racist, and homophobic rants. It's all captured on his gold-selling live 1989 debut album, Andrew Dice Clay (also known as Dice. The thing is, Clay doesn't really do "jokes" per se. So, is he actually funny? Yes and no. He's wildly uneven. Whether his schtick mocks or emboldens white men who really hold these views is up for debate. The persona is the joke, although he does land some solid punches in his routine when he focuses. His most famous and funny bit, "Mother Goose," is a string of X-rated versions of nursery rhymes. "Doctors and Nurses" tackles the indignities of a medical exam. "The Golden Age of Television" includes jabs at The Beverly Hillbillies and I Dream of Jeannie. Sex is a major theme throughout, of course, and "Couples in Love," "The Bait," and "Hoggin'" generate guilty laughs while guaranteeing he'll never be the guest of honor at a National Organization for Women dinner. Looking back, Clay's rise and fall mirrored the culture -- the end of the freewheeling, do-everything-to-excess 1980s and the beginning of the woe-is-me-I'm-gonna-stare-at-my-shoes-and-mope, politically correct 1990s. He continued his TV and movie work and relaunched his standup career with a fraction of his past success. Andrew Dice Clay seems destined to remain his mainstream peak. ~AllMusic

Isaac Air Freight - Freight's Designer Album 1984

Birth name
Official Site

In 1978, Issac Air Freight recorded their first album entitled FUN IN THE SON. It was an immediate best seller among contemporary Christian audiences and by the time IN THE AIR/ON THE AIR, their second album (and first after the departure of friend Larry Watt) was released, the group’s touring schedule had grown enormously, and with it, the appeal for their insightful comic vision. 1980 brought the release of FOOLISH GUYS...TO CONFOUND THE WISE, an album aimed at the spiritual center of contemporary life, both inside and outside the church; a powerful statement in laughter.
In 1981, Dan and Dave began work on THE ISAAC AIR SHOW, a highly successful daily radio feature. The program was syndicated nation-wide on over 120 stations. The most popular selections from the show gave birth to two more albums, SNOOZE YA LOOZE and MY KINGDOM COME/THY KINGDOM COME.

Extensive touring and numerous television projects brought the group widespread recognition not only within the Gospel industry, but with a national, mainstream audience. Their growing popularity brought two more albums aimed at this audience outside the church walls. THE FREIGHT’S DESIGNER ALBUM (1985) and OVER OUR HEADS (1987) revealed their growth as artists and as communicators.

Murray Roman - Out Of Control With Murray Roman 1960

On: Saturday, February 9, 2013

Murray Roman
Birth name
New York, USA
Mar 08 1929 – Nov 06 1973 age 44
Official Site 

Out of Control was the first Murray Roman record and his only release pre-dating his position as darling of the acid rockers. Released at a time when even the most failed comedy lounge act put out a wax version of their performance, Roman’s initial record quickly drifted off into a vinyl no-mans-land. The album, unheard by this writer, is hard to come by, but likely resembles the non-drug related musings on ERA Records’ At The Playboy Club Tonight [Jack] Burns and [George] Carlin. In both examples, no one could’ve guessed what was to come based on these vinyl debuts. Out of Control had Roman performing mostly jokes about skiing and other winter activities. It was later re-issued under the title Ski Humor. Following the release of the album, Roman made his first appearance on television, performing innocuous observational humor on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. It would be his first and final appearance in front of a Tonight Show audience as the marijuana, LSD and insanity of Johnson and Nixon were about to permanently affect the Roman outlook. Roman’s future employer, Tom Smothers, described what the early Murray Roman act was like. “I saw him perform … nineteen… sixty-one… in Aspen, Colorado and he did ski jokes. Y’know, skiing jokes [and] snow jokes. And I met him there. Aspen became a little bit of a place you’d go and work for nothing … and do comedy or music and work the season up there. I think he only worked one season up there and of course, when you’re there you pick up on what’s going on [around you]. So he did a ski album … I don’t remember hearing that one but I remember him doing a piece of that on our show one time … It wasn’t particularly great.” Steve Martin recalls the subversive Roman doing the bit on The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour. “There was one [episode] called The Writers’ Show and all the writers appeared… Mason Williams and me and Murray Roman. I remember Tommy kind of playfully kidded him because Murray was a real spokesman for being tough and saying the honest thing. Then on The Writers’ Show, Murray elected to do a ski routine… and Tommy kind of berated him in a friendly way saying, ‘You’re the one who is always saying we should go out there [and push the envelope] and you did like the safest routine possible!” Shock.
