Audible Editor Reviews

A writer at Saturday Night Live, John Mulaney may be best-known as the co-creator of the character Stefon, but his stand-up comedy is every bit as funny as his writing. In the audio performance New in Town, he shows off his chops, to hilarious effect. Mulaney's nice guy demeanor plays well with his droll humor as he riffs on topics like his childlike appearance, French fries, his likelihood of being gay, and Law & Order. Recorded at the Skirball Theater in New York City, the enthusiastic laughter of the audience adds to the hilarity of this live comedy listening experience.

    "Hilarious!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would. This stand-up was very funny. It was a quick and easy listen.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of New in Town?

    The best part was the doctor visit that John describes at the end. I was cracking up.


    Which character – as performed by the narrator – was your favorite?

    This was stand-up comedy, so there weren’t really any characters, but the comedian’s delivery was great. He did funny voices and really carried the audience through the situations that he described.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I laughed through the majority of this stand up album. It was a great pick-me-up.


    Any additional comments?

    This was my first experience listening to stand up from Audible. Sometimes I get distracted during books and have to go back and re-listen to parts. However, this stand-up album was very easy to listen to and didn’t distract me from work. It was a very funny addition to my work day!

    "My Sides Hurt!"
    Would you listen to New in Town again? Why?

    Hell yes! He was flawless and if he isn't already one of the best comics in the country he should be. I'm sure people will see true talent and go out and see this gentleman!


    What did you like best about this story?

    His story that the CD is named after. Won't give any of it anyway but it will stick with you.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Same one that involves the title, the way he describes it and sets the scene, is perfect. He's someone to take notes on.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laugh and very hard and very often.


    Any additional comments?

    Check out his other stand up, called the Top Part. Another great recording.

    A newly found fan of audiobooks. Not much credit as a professional critic. Yet my review are more from the 'average persons' point of view.

    "AT FIRST..."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I didn't give this book a fair chance. I didn't complete the book.


    What other book might you compare New in Town to and why?

    About 3/4 of the way through, John tells a story/ joke that I've already heard before from another comedian. I'm not saying that John stole it/ used it 2nd..But it being the 2nd time I've heard the joke, it was such a turn off. I didn't finish the book.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Why wouldn't it? I don't understand the question. Maybe I need an example of a narrative not matching the story.


    Did New in Town inspire you to do anything?

    To not listen to John Mulaney anymore. Just bad timing. If I would of listened to John tell it first I would of not liked the other comedian. :( Sorry.
