Publisher's Summary

Among other things, this album addresses such issues as Lenny Bruce, Elian Gonzales, Jerry Garcia, Gore and Bradley, George W. Bush, and more. It was taped on May 17, 2000, at Borders Books and Music in Pasadena, California. Dubbed "the father of the underground press" by People magazine, and called a "raving, unconfined nut" by the FBI, Paul Krassner is a counter-culture legend and a comic genius. According to the Los Angles Reader, "Krassner delivers the funniest, most intelligent social and political commentary in town."
Krassner, a crucial figure in the development of America's alternate press, edited and published The Realist from 1958 to 1974, and reincarnated it as a newsletter in 1985. He began his career writing for Mad magazine and has also written articles for Rolling Stone, Playboy, Penthouse, New York, National Lampoon, High Times, The Village Voice, Mother Jones, and The Nation. He even served as editor of Hustler for a brief time.
Paul Krassner is the only person in the world to win awards from both Playboy (for satire) and the Feminist Party Media Workshop (for Journalism). He edited Lenny Bruce's autobiography, How To Talk Dirty and Influence People, and with Lenny's encouragement became a stand-up comedian himself.

He defines a comedian and then fails to live up to the requirements.
It's not funny.
