Child of the 50's

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
As the title indicates, many of the routines here originate from Robert Klein's experiences growing up in New York in the 1950s. He's equally comfortable, however, taking on then-current targets like stoned FM disc jockeys and inane television commercials, or whimsically making fun of late-19th century president James Garfield. Because so many of his sources are so common to the American experience -- neurotic schoolteachers, the idiocy of mainstream media, and starting your car in the dead of winter -- the jokes remain funny decades later.
