Blue Collar Comedy: The Next Generations

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - David Jeffries
You'd think the Blue Collar Comedy franchise would have been laid to rest after a poor excuse for a television show and a final, One for the Road album that just sounded like everybody was itching to leave, but no. Instead, there's the Next Generations, a bad idea not due to the comics themselves, but to the misrepresentative Blue Collar packaging. Having Original Blue Collar member Bill Engvall introduce and outro this new crew with his natural, casual brand of comedy just helps to point out that the first two of these young bucks fall into the stilted, stereotypical comedian category, the ones that usually appear second on the bill at your local comedy club.

You'd think the Blue Collar Comedy franchise would have been laid to rest after a poor excuse for a television show and a final, One for the Road album that just sounded like everybody was itching to leave, but no. Instead, there's the Next Generations, a bad idea not due to the comics themselves, but to the misrepresentative Blue Collar packaging. Having Original Blue Collar member Bill Engvall introduce and outro this new crew with his natural, casual brand of comedy just helps to point out that the first two of these young bucks fall into the stilted, stereotypical comedian category, the ones that usually appear second on the bill at your local comedy club. Jamie Kaler and Juston McKinney are good, not great, comedians who run through all the clichés as if they were the cookie cutter example of standup, but more than anything, the "Blue Collar" tag seems totally tacked on. While their redneck attitude is slight, not so for John Caparulo, the obvious Larry the Cable Guy replacement with weaker material and a slightly different -- thoroughly confused instead of slightly confused -- attitude. Think Deliverance meets Maria Bramford and you've got his shtick, which at this point still shows signs of being manufactured. Reno Collier, on the other hand, is a natural, at ease on the stage and very funny, plus very Scottish, pale, and not nearly as down-home folksy as anyone in the original crew. Say what you want about that first gang, but they were a thematically sound package that still managed to be well rounded. Ignore the Blue Collar name on the cover, consider it Bill Engvall introducing some young hopefuls, adjust your expectations, and you won't be so disappointed.
