A hooker in sensible shoes
1 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I caught this on HBO and laughed so hard thatI had to have it for posterity. Luckily, I managed to tape it on a re-run. That tape is almost worn out now.

Jeni is phenomenal in his delivery and self-depreciating humor. Stand-ups like him are rare talents, and it really is a shame he has not been given the acclaim he deserves.

His bits regarding porn stars, house noises, restaurant lobsters, weathermen, advice columns, cooking show hosts, platypus comparisons etc. are gems. I still lose it when he mimics the Galloping Gourmet. He wisely avoids references to current events and situations, so the humor stays fresh and undated.

HBO needs to air this show again.
