    Recorded two months prior to Mitch Hedberg's death, this album contains nearly 40 minutes of previously unreleased stand-up material. It pulses with Mitch's inimitable wit and spirit. It documents a comedy master, and it's a treat for all those who were afraid they'd never get to hear another great Hedberg joke.

    Absolute genius, a cross between Carlin and Wright. Gone way too soon. Mitch Hedberg is pure comedy genius and gold! Always a great listen!

  • The Disappearing Spoon: And Other True Tales of Madness, Love, and the History of the World from the Periodic Table of the Elements

    Reporter Sam Kean reveals the periodic table as it’s never been seen before. Not only is it one of man's crowning scientific achievements, it's also a treasure trove of stories of passion, adventure, betrayal, and obsession. The infectious tales and astounding details in The Disappearing Spoon follow carbon, neon, silicon, and gold as they play out their parts in human history, finance, mythology, war, the arts, poison, and the lives of the (frequently) mad scientists who discovered them.

    Zero - infinity's twin - is not like other numbers. It is both nothing and everything. Science journalist Charles Seife takes a concise and appealing look at the strangest number in the universe and its continuing role as one of the great paradoxes of human thought.

    Arriving in the mail over a period of weeks are taunting letters that end with a simple declaration: “Think of any number…picture it…now see how well I know your secrets.” Amazingly, those who comply find that the letter writer has predicted their random choice exactly. For Dave Gurney, just retired as the NYPD’s top homicide investigator and forging a new life with his wife, Madeleine, in upstate New York, the letters are oddities that begin as a diverting puzzle but quickly ignite a massive serial murder investigation.

    This tribute to Patrice O' Neal includes reflections from Gregg ‘Opie’ Hughes, comedians Rich Vos, Joe DeRosa, and Amy Schumer.

    Patrice ONeal passed too soon. This is a chance for everyone to see what a genius this comedian was/is. Even if you don't like O&A this is a chance for you to hear how funny and insightful Patrice was!

    Hysterical! Ten years ago, Uproar took the explicit-lyrics, grown-up version of this classic performance off the market in favor of the edited "clean" version. Now, on the 10-year anniversary of that decision, we are happy to bring it back. Enjoy!

    Two men, only able to find pleasure in the extreme, turn to defiling crypts and keeping the souvenirs of their nocturnal expeditions, creating a morbid museum in the basement of their secluded home. When they steal a potent amulet mentioned in the dreaded and forbidden Necronomicon from a 500-years-dead grave robber in Holland, he comes back for it and more.

    skee a. Goedhart says: "Run Away!!"
    "Not as bad as one would be led to believe."
    Overall

    I have to admit that on the first listen I was a little taken aback. However, after a few times it has grown on me. Kevin Yancy has a passion for Lovecraft that is obvious and it shows.

    I have to also admit that having read the story helped me to understand this particular story.

    Here is the good part. Enjoy it. No, its not for everyone but boy did I find it a fun ride. Despite previous reviews I took it as an interesting ride on someones interpretation. Yancy, I applaud you for your time and dedication and to help my love of Lovecraft grow. I can't read The Hound without hearing your voice.

    Thanks man!

    Patrice Oneal is back with another hilarious edition of his XM Satellite Radio relationship show, Black Phillip. This time around, Kathleen Rowle gets hung up on one caller, and Patrice explains her behavior is exactly what women do. Plus, a lengthy discussion on threesomes - how to get them going and what NOT to do to mess them up.

    Alexander says: "Great Show Again..."

    Patrice does it again. This should be a regular show on XM. He is funny and insightful. I listened to this one twice. Bring on more!!!!
