Third_Uncle_Eno: titwrenchWho buys these? Once you have heard a joke do you really need to hear it again, especially to the point that you feel compelled to own it so you can hear it whenever you want? Music I get buying but the allure of comedy albums always escaped me.you must be tons of fun at parties.I have a few Carlin records, a Steve Martin LP (the lesser known "Comedy Isn't Pretty"), Robin Williams "Reality what a concept!" (not all that funny, actually) and his "live at the Met 1985" (probably his best cd), a 2LP set of Woody Allen's early stand up (half of it is pretty good, what a very witty guy).as for hearing them again,I've listened to Steven Wright's "I Have a Pony" about 4 times, and it's STILL funny.

drewogatory: Considering you have to listen to a Firesign album 20 freaking times sometimes just to figure out what the hell is going on, they are somewhat exempt. I was referring more to stand -up than meta material like that.

Comedy has even less replay value than tv episodes and mainstream movies, although there are idiots who will watch those over and over again as well. I'll never understand why one would watch something they have already seen over something they haven't unless they have worse short term memory than a 2 year old.
