批評家のレビュー

"The audio medium is probably the best way to absorb this collection....Valuable and well-performed." (Publishers Weekly)

あらすじ・解説

Perfect for commuter train rides, rush-hour gridlock, Pilates workouts, or any time when levity might add to the very quality of life. With inimitable contributions by Merrill Markoe, Dave Barry, Garry Trudeau, and Bruce McCall, you have a triumphant salute to one of America's greatest assets: its sense of humor.

A salvo of hilarity from that loose canon of American humor that Mirth of a Nation editor Michael J. Rosen has culled from some 1200 pages of brilliantly original works by our best contemporary humorists. This action-packed compilation of highlights (FYI, we have no intention of mentioning "the funnybone" and how this audio is sure to tickle it) includes Bobbie Ann Mason's stint at the La Bamba hotline, David Rakoff's insights on families, Andy Borowitz's memoir of Emily Dickinson (basically, she was a drunken jerk), and Michael Feldman's helpful (re)locating of the Midwest.

Performed by Tony Roberts, Susie Essman, with guest performances by Stephen Collins, Michael Feldman, Cynthia Kaplan, Martha Plimpton, David Rakoff, M. Sweeney Lawless, Sandra Tsing Loh, and Mark O'Donnell.

They left out the mirth!

This is simply bad. The reading is good, the articles are well written, but their content is just plan 'stupid'. I hate using such an inelegant word, but anything else may give the articles too much credit.

I suffered through the first two CDs hoping to find something to make this worth the time and expense, but no luck. Just more really bad articles about ridiculous topics.

Stay away from this one.

Great if you like dry humor

great if you like dry humor, but there are some performance issues, some skipping and a repeated track.
