Description
"When Morey died, he took about 100,000 jokes with him," remarked Dick Van Dyke when this linchpin of his TV show passed away in 1996. Indeed, a rippling stream of gags flows through this album of zingers and rib-ticklers, all embedded in musical numbers—amounting to a one-man compendium of comedy tropes that span the years from vaudeville to the early days of TV. Tracks include "My Psychiatrist Says," his signature song "Yuk-a-Puc," and the close-to-home "Drunks, Inc." (Amsterdam once described himself as a "well-dressed hangover").

"His uncanny conversational style and the everyman aspect he brings to the performance punch the hackneyed bits up for an undeniable freshness. 'Big Molly O'Toole' is … a melodic take-off of the traditional Irish melody 'Cockles and Mussels.' Two of the more surreal selections are much more in line with Amsterdam's slightly off center personality—the observational 'I Wonder What a Baby Thinks' and the uptempo musical poem 'A Man's Best Friend Is His Nose.'…. 'Baby Down the Drain' dates back to English cabaret reviews, although classic rock fans might recognize the contents via Cream's 'Mother's Lament'."—All Music Guide
