After Allan Sherman's song parody album MY SON, THE FOLK SINGER became a surprise best seller, a number of less successful Jewish humor LPs followed. Released by Warner Brothers in 1966, LBJ IN THE CATSKILLS was one of the poorest of these.
Christopher Weeks (Jack De Leon) as LBJ
Fannie Flagg as Lady Bird
Keren Liswood as Lynda
Plus Robert Weil, Diane Pane, Mal Lawrence and Patsy Shaw 

1.) A klezmer band "Hail to the Chief" introduces this LP's premise: our President from down-home Texas meets Yiddish-accented Borscht Belt denizen. "Check In" raises some logistical tsuris. 2.) Robert McNamara's call to Lyndon gets routed by mistake to "Lindman," a typically koshah room guest. 3.) LBJ's dinner party of 109 are broken up and sent to "themed" tables. The Prez and Lady Bird sit with three couples and one mother-in-law. Lyndon reads the menu then gives Max the waiter his order. 4.) Features music from Dick Hyman's dance band. LBJ is taught to cha-cha-cha. 5.) The interpreter translates Lyndon's comment. 6.) LBJ's "with hot milk" order is misunderstood as "wit'out milk." 7.) The Ladies room has a Latin band. 8.) A popular Jewish noodle recipe Lady Bird is given ain't for kugel. 9.) Humphrey invites his boss to stay away another week.
1.) Members of the Jewish-American press set up jokes for Lyndon. 2.) A smooth resort Romeo tries to charm Lynda Bird while they dance. 3.) Comic Bobby K., tonight's featured act, is delayed in traffic. 4.) The old toll call trick. 5.) LBJ wins a "dance with a broom" talent contest. 6.) A special guest runway model. 7.) Myron's wife would rather chat on the phone with her husband than with Lyndon. 8.) Hotel manager arranges a ride for "Mrs. Schechter from da Bronx." 9.) The Johnsons leave with more than luggage-- they've acquired Yiddish accents and a penchant for singing "Hava Nagila." ~Amazon customer review

Moms Mabley - Moms Mabley Breaks It Up 1962

On: Tuesday, July 30, 2013

Moms Mabley
Loretta Mary Aiken
aka Jackie Mabley
Brevard, North Carolina, USA
Mar 19 1894 – May 23 1975 age 81

Mabley's forays into comedy....proved most enduring - appearing on-stage in house dresses and over-sized hats (a wardrobe inspired by her own grandmother), her matronly image belied her saucy routines, which were laden with sexual innuendo as well as cutting observations on the state of race relations in the U.S. As several observers pointed out, her no-frills, little-old-lady appearance not only endeared Mabley to fans, but made it that much easier for audiences of all races to swallow her more biting material - even few male comedians of the time were as pointedly topical or as salacious, and most of them were white on top of it. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

Veteran comedian Phyllis Diller credited Manna with helping improve her standup routine when she was starting in the business, "It was at New York's Bon Soir nightclub during the early sixties that the comic Charlie Manna gave me the greatest advice about how to get on: quickly tell five of your hottest jokes and then run with them. Get the audience laughing for real, don't make it a phony deal. Manna was quoted as saying, "There are two varieties of comedy: funny and not funny."

Rodney Rude - Twice As Rude 2004 (Australia)

Rodney Rude's newest CD "Twice as Rude" would have to be his funniest in a long line of thoroughly funny RUDE CDs. I laughed from the moment I pressed play, to the moment it finished. In my opinion, no other Australian comic could boast such excellence in the field of live stand up comedy as Rodney Rude.
"Twice as Rude" is Rodney's 11th album. Some of my favourite tracks include "Rude wears jodhpurs with padded arse sewn in" and "Rude does embuggerment joke disguised as an insult". In these tracks he hangs crap on other people in true Rodney Rude form - and lets face it, what's not funny about that?! I would have to say, though, I absolutely p***ed myself in track 15 in the joke about the "Scoop" - but you'll have to get the CD yourself to understand what I'm talking about - I just couldn't do it justice!!
Rodney Rude's "Twice as Rude" provides fans with exactly what they want -- really rude, weird, and clever comedy that you can't play in front of your grandmother! Rude's new CD in my opinion shows Rodney's ongoing commitment to producing high quality products and satisfying fans with obnoxious, politically unsound, but funny-as-hell comedy. I also highly recommend "Rodney Rude Live: Vol 1" which was Rodney's first video (1984) and has just been re-released on DVD. If you are a Rude fan then you'll love this piece of classic Rude comedy.

Vaughn Meader - Second Coming 1972

For about a year, Vaughn Meader was one of the most famous comedians in America, thanks to his uncanny impersonation of John F. Kennedy on the wildly popular humor album The First Family. When Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963, Meader's career died right along with the president, but while he never made it back into the limelight, Meader made periodic attempts to find a new career in show business, and since he could no longer portray one of America's most beloved icons, he tried playing another one, in 1971 -- Jesus Christ. Earle Doud, one of the writers and producers of The First Family, once again teamed up with Meader for The Second Coming, in which God (voiced by Joe Silver) decides it's time to send his only begotten son back to Earth. After materializing in Harlem and making friends with a couple of street dudes named Andrew and Bartholomew (one of whom is played by Ted Lange, later a regular on The Love Boat), Jesus hooks up with Joey Judas, a talent agent who books him on the talk-show circuit, gets him a gig opening the bill at a massive rock concert, makes him the grand prize in a "Win a Week with Jesus" contest, and generally attempts to turn him into a multimedia superstar (with the main theme from Jesus Christ Superstar appearing as a running joke throughout the album -- and Ted Neeley, who two years later would star in the film version of Jesus Christ Superstar, helped out with the music here). Meader's Jesus is pretty much the straight man throughout, and the humor walks a middle ground between cynical show-biz shtick and counter-culture-leaning humor pointing out the foibles of life in the United States, circa 1971, including gags about Nixon, women's liberation, Woodstock, and Sesame Street. While Second Coming has dated about as well as The First Family (and if that album can be reissued on CD, there's no reason why The Second Coming shouldn't get another chance to find an audience). If nothing else, it's as much a document of American life in 1971 as The First Family is as a time capsule of 1962.
