Audible Editor Reviews

Juxtaposing calm delivery with sometimes-sleazy jokes, stand-up comic and frequent film and TV actor Todd Barry's unique style of comedy is captured at its best on 2001's Medium Energy. Recorded live at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York City, Barry's first comedy album contains a mix of old and then-new material, ranging from laconic jokes about masturbation at bank machines to chilled-out quips about brand loyalty to condoms. Mellow, strange, filthy, and hilarious, this recording will make listeners sputter with laughter.

What the Critics Say

"Todd Barry's act has more than its fair share of filth, but with a delivery that's the polar opposite of Andrew Dice Clay's, his sleaze material is a fascinating kind of creepy instead of the usual brash offensiveness." (David Jeffries, All Music Guide)

    Story
    "Cynicism with a wry smile"

    Todd Barry has a relatable and funny way of complaining about everyday life. Not political or raunchy yet somehow feels a little dirty and does have a disguised social commentary. He is not overly intense or even exciting, yet his jokes are extra funny and his medium energy delivery is very entertaining. This is a great example of Todd Barry's work, if you are looking to buy some of his stand-up this is a nice place to start.
