Publisher's Summary

Join Rick Reynolds as he guides you through the foibles, fumbles and pratfalls of his own life beginning with his bizarre childhood. From the drowning of his father at a family picnic, to a bank-robbing stepfather, to his mother's 3 marriages and innumerable affairs, Reynolds portrays a striking picture of the lengths people will go for love and the human connection. His veritable laundry list of obsessive habits, vanities, and personal quirks, provides the most awesome of reactions, the shock of recognition. This is the truth. It may not set you free, make you smarter, or win the lottery, but it may make you more human. And it will definitely make you laugh.

Best kept secret in comedy

Rick Reynolds is the best kept secret in comedy. He's real, what you see is what you get with him. He tells the best stories. He doesn't hold anything back. You feel like Rick is one of your close friends by the end. You want to share his story with everyone. I highly recommend his work.

Great performance, terrible quality

I think Rick Reynolds is one of the funniest people I have ever heard. The title of his performance tells it all: Only the Truth is Funny. It's true, and Rick does it like no one else. The unfortunate part of this product however is the sound quality. I feel like this was recorded from a speaker in the 1950's played through a tin can. I was very dissapointed but I could only find this performance here.
