David Brenner shares his comic material and theories about the importance of humor with well-timed delivery and great zest. He knows he's funny, and his laughter at his own jokes and at himself is infectious. Brenner is pathologically humorous. Everything can be funny, as demonstrated by his riffs on marriage, children, sports, and going to the dentist. His sometimes crude language is offset by his genuine delivery on topics such as quitting smoking and using humor to make the best of a difficult situation. In fact, his compelling testimony about quitting smoking might be helpful for anyone trying to break the habit. Overall, Brenner's East Coast/Philly/New York patois is the perfect vehicle for his manifesto to lighten up without lighting up. R.F. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 04]
