BRENT WEINBACH: The Night Shift: CD

It’s a change of pace to get a comedy CD. Although, the production quality seems professional in terms of the laugh tracks and getting an extremely eerie effect from the tone of his voice (it’s rather emotionless, like a serial killer on the phone). During the stand-up stuff, Weinbach has high energy and the crowd sounds receptive, but the material alone without us listeners seeing his facial expressions or mannerism falls flat. I just didn’t find myself laughing about how he wanted to be Chun-Li from Street Fighter II and how the six joystick buttons reminded him of his six testicles. So, perhaps Weinbach sums it up perfectly in his track “Making Sense” when he says, “It’s not supposed to make any sense.”
