Although he could be classified as an observational comic, Moulton's perspective on life's details sets him apart from the pack. There are no stories of airline food, the differences between the sexes, or examples of how white guys can't dance. Moulton instead breathes life into a fresh laundry list of topics such as throwaway "I love you's" and trying to explain to a youngster why the post office and email continue to co-exist. On "Fowl" Moulton brilliantly captures the only three words chickens are smart enough to learn and "Wife's Yawn Cry" is a hilarious take on the sun and how it affects certain bodily functions.
Moulton doesn't rely on overly-contrived premises to bring in the laughs. The reason his material resonates as strongly as it does is because what he is saying is the truth: If we all treated puppies the way we treat fish, PETA would go nuts. But for some reason these finicky animal activists are absolutely fine with the fact we can slam a fish against a rock and rip off it's lips. As Moulton points out, that's what they get for not blinking.
