CD review: Brian Regan “All By Myself”
From Friday’s Weekend Look section of The Oklahoman.
Brian Regan “All By Myself” (BrianRegan.com exclusive)
Fans who appreciate comedian Brian Regan’s absurdly spot-on observations about language, aging and life’s little idiosyncrasies should avoid sipping beverages or driving in busy traffic while listening to his new live album “All By Myself.”
The popular standup comic’s first CD since 1997, “All By Myself” is consistently laugh-out-loud funny and captures the madcap hilarity of his live show surprisingly well. Regan is known for punctuating his jokes with screwball facial expressions and goofy posturing, and it’s a testament to the strength of his material and vocal delivery that he keeps the chuckles coming without the physical comedy.
From proper use of the word godspeed and premature endings in chess to his first forays into text messaging and the most dangerous aspect of football, the Miami, Fla., entertainer takes on a wide variety of relatable topics. Longtime fans who made his last CD, “Brian Regan Live,” a dorm room favorite and have grown older with him will relish his riffs on doctor’s visits, random body aches and parenting foibles. But people of all ages will find plenty of laughs in his clean routine.
