Publisher's Summary

This now out-of-print underground release captures the incredible energy, creativity, and hysteria of the Un-Cabaret's birth. The legendary show was hailed as the "mother-show of alternative comedy" as Beth and her friends forged a new style of comedy that was real, true, intimate, emotional, and sometimes painfully honest.

Audible Editor Reviews

What started out as a response to the suffering comedy club scene in Los Angeles quickly turned into one of the hottest tickets in town. Beth Lapides’s Un-Cabaret has hosted some of the biggest and funniest names in the business, and this production is another prime example of her amazing work. Featuring such comics as Janeane Garofalo, Andy Kindler, and David Cross, Freak Weather Feels Different is a hilarious recording that is a must-listen for all fans of standup and alternative comedy.

Fragmented and poorly produced

I am a huge fan of live storytelling podcasts and recordings so I was more than a little let down by the choppy, patched-together content contained in this compilation. There were a lot of little recorded snippets thrown into the mix and the overall effect was like flipping through channels on the TV without staying on one long enough to catch more than a sentence.

Also : I'm not super picky about crowd noise or less than optimal recording quality but this recording contained waaaaay too much cackling laughter directly into the microphone by the host and I was glad when the hour+ was over. The host leaves her mic on the entire time and peppers the performances with her own comments and grating laughter - it was obnoxious and I would liken it to heckling in some cases. I've listened to several other Uncabaret recordings which had some of the same interruptions - however, not to this extreme and not as grating as this one.

Good for a quick laugh

This audiobook is a collection of short clips from various comedians, mainly Beth Lapides. Much of it is laugh-out-loud funny, but some was not so humorous to me, giving it a raw, uneven quality. Sometimes the laughter from audience members near the recorder almost drowns out the comedian. Some of the clips are very short, so it was hard to get "into" some of the bits; I listened to it while making several stops, so it didn't affect me as much as it might someone on a longer trip or commute who wants a lengthier audiobook. If you're looking for a quick laugh and aren't easily offended, this audiobook may do the trick.
