Robert Klein continues to be a force in the world of stand-up comedy and proved it with this HBO special. Klein has admirably been able to keep a secure place in the business without performing completely blue and without getting really mean or nasty. This special was a prime example of this. Despite a lame opening bit with a cast member of THE SOPRANOS threatening him with bodily harm if he doesn't perform his signature song, "I Can't Stop My Leg", Klein takes the stage and does a very funny song called "Colonostrophy". Only Klein can make a song about a surgical procedure sound like a love song. He then jumps into various topics from President Clinton to Judism to Southern Cooking to Actor's Equity. And I love the fact that he always manages to work his "Twilight Zone" vocal trick into the show and it always gets a laugh. Klein is a consummate comic professional who up and coming comics could take a page from.
