    "Terrible"

    This was just awful and very disappointing. This is obviously the verbatim of an awards show and it would have been nice to have some of the boring introductions and awards left out. Each of the speakers actually read their jokes off a piece of paper. They didn't "deliver" the joke, literally read them. Listen to the sample before purchasing...but i would say skip this all together.
