HATING KIDS, HATING BUSH, HATING EVANESCENCE... DAVID CROSS LIVE AND NICELY RECORDED.
ALBUM`````````````IT'S NOT FUNNY
One of his best performances. Good audio quality.
It's Not Funny is David Cross' 2004 stand-up comedy album, released on Sub Pop Records. The track titles, like those on his previous record Shut Up You Fucking Baby!, have no relevance to the bits Cross does on the album and are instead there to make fun of material performed by other comedians, either on the whole or targeted at specific comedians; e.g. the seventh track is probably a stab at comedians such as Margaret Cho, and track 4 is probably a stab at parody artists like "Weird Al" Yankovic.
Cross has said the album's title references children being laughed at by their friends while trying to tell them something important, only to reply, "Come on guys, it's not funny." Stand Up! Records also released a limited LP edition of 500 for this release, as they had for Shut Up You Fucking Baby!. Like the CD, it also contains a hidden track that plays from the label out to a locked groove. This edition is a single LP, unlike its predecessor.
