This now out-of-print underground release captures the incredible energy, creativity, and hysteria of the Un-Cabaret's birth. The legendary show was hailed as the "mother-show of alternative comedy" as Beth and her friends forged a new style of comedy that was real, true, intimate, emotional, and sometimes painfully honest.

Good for a quick laugh

This audiobook is a collection of short clips from various comedians, mainly Beth Lapides. Much of it is laugh-out-loud funny, but some was not so humorous to me, giving it a raw, uneven quality. Sometimes the laughter from audience members near the recorder almost drowns out the comedian. Some of the clips are very short, so it was hard to get "into" some of the bits; I listened to it while making several stops, so it didn't affect me as much as it might someone on a longer trip or commute who wants a lengthier audiobook. If you're looking for a quick laugh and aren't easily offended, this audiobook may do the trick.
