Bob Odenkirk has had stacks of old stand-up jokes for years and years and before he goes on forward with Better Call Saul and other non-stand-up pursuits, he wanted to get them recorded live.
The result is the comedy album “Amateur Hour”, a really fun meta ride through Bob reading his old jokes, often crumpling ones that he doesn’t want to do along with the enthusiastic, very young Brandon Wardell to contrast. There’s, very much in the spirit of Mr. Show, also an “old instructional” track on how to do stand-up from decades past.
It should be a fun thing to listen to while you’re enduing the marathon of food and family that is Thanksgiving. Get it from AST Records now.
