You won't be disappointed in the mix of funny one-liners and often told and retold jokes, all in good taste, and certainly PG or PG13+. The sound quality is crystal clear and and the editing is very smooth. Easy to listen to in one sitting, and then you're ready to send a copy of it to your father or grandfather, it's that it's multi-generational. Very good, and recommended for the drive alone, or with any mixed crowd, bound to elicit a joke or two or a variant you've heard before. You'll listen again and again to hear that one special joke that you have never been able to re-tell just right. The delivery is excellent, and the timing/pace is right-on, even with the groaners. 4 stars, easily.
