Hey, That's Funny! Comedy's Greatest Hits [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
The first compilation spanning the modern comedy era, this uproarious two-disc set collects 33 timeless bits from an all-star crew of cutting-edge funny folks, from George Carlin, Richard Pryor, and Bill Cosby to Denis Leary, Ray Romano, and Chris Rock. Nothing is beyond the reach of the funny bone for these wickedly witty comedians, from the (potentially) serious (Sam Kinison's "World Hunger," Dennis Miller's AIDS discussion "Sex") to the ridiculous (Triumph the Insult Comedy Dog's "Call to Kennel," Robert Schimmel's "The Gym"). Amplifying the laughs are renowned cast ensembles, such as Saturday Night Live's groundbreaking Not Ready for Prime Time Players (featuring Chevy Chase and Jane Curtin in "Gun Control"), ...

Nothing is beyond the reach of the funny bone for these wickedly witty comedians, from the (potentially) serious (Sam Kinison's "World Hunger," Dennis Miller's AIDS discussion "Sex") to the ridiculous (Triumph the Insult Comedy Dog's "Call to Kennel," Robert Schimmel's "The Gym"). Amplifying the laughs are renowned cast ensembles, such as Saturday Night Live's groundbreaking Not Ready for Prime Time Players (featuring Chevy Chase and Jane Curtin in "Gun Control"), Monty Python's Flying Circus ("Argument Clinic"), and National Lampoon (on "Mr. Roberts," Christopher Guest and Bill Murray send up Mister Rogers). From Rodney Dangerfield's "No Respect" to Gilda Radner's "Roseanne Roseannadanna," you'll find more gut-busters for your buck than on a day's worth of Comedy Central.
All Music Guide - David Jeffries
Looking for a quick laugh? Then try Rhino's Hey, That's Funny!, the overview of comedy on record that's as fun as it is incomplete. Taking it from when standup met the album format onward, Hey, That's Funny! doesn't include any of the man who's keeping the kids in the comedy section in the 2000s -- Adam Sandler -- and none of the guy who got half the attention in the '90s -- Andrew Dice Clay -- but most others are here, and the tracks picked to represent them are good enough. Kicking off with Bill Cosby and Richard Pryor proves somebody at Rhino knows who the Beatles and Stones of comedy are, but a little roots material like "Who's On First" or a Stan Freberg track would've been nice. You get Paul Reiser instead of the Firesign Theatre, but including a bit of a Redd Foxx "party" record is smart and hopefully some will get turned on to Flip Wilson because of the collection. You'd really need a big box set to tell the story that Hey, That's Funny! hints at, and the quick jumping around of styles makes this a hard start-to-finish listen. Hey, That's Funny! works best as a sampler that you pick at once in a while.
