He put out an album last year and was on Nerdist podcast to promote it.

u/bigfatguy64 · 35 pointsr/funny

Bobcat Goldthwait actually named his CD, "I don't mean to insult you, but you look like Bobcat Goldthwait"

u/DrZurn · 23 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

You're in luck, I present to you Mandatory Fun

u/m00f · 17 pointsr/funny

Could have been a straight steal... we'll never know. In any case, if you are a stand-up comedy fan definitely check out the Bobcat (comeback?) album linked above... great stuff.

Edit: link to album since the link above is just a picture

u/wharpua · 15 pointsr/funny

That joke formed the title of one of his comedy albums of a live set he did, which is pretty good:

I Don't Mean to Insult You, But You Look Like Bobcat Goldthwait

One bit I remember from it had Bobcat talking about filming that scene from Blow when Johnny Depp and Paul Reubens got him to sample their completely pure product. Him and Depp were comparing recent run-ins with the law (Depp with some Drunk & Disorderly thing, Goldthwait for accidentally starting a fire while doing a guest spot on the Tonight Show), and they were like, “Probation. You?” “Community Service.” Then they look at Reubens: “Anywaaaayyysss...”

u/just_a_fool_here · 15 pointsr/pics

He's also released an album of jewish-themed music called "My Mother's Brisket" that has done quite well.

u/Gusfoo · 12 pointsr/funny

Ahh - but the album he did with Ben Folds (Has Been) is outstanding. The cover of Pulp's "Common People" always makes me smile.

u/capnmidnite · 10 pointsr/Music

It's from Do You Believe in Gosh? which was released a year or two ago.

u/Jo_MamaSo · 10 pointsr/hmmm
u/the-grassninja · 9 pointsr/standupshots

It's on YouTube, but the quality isn't the greatest. The (higher quality) DVD is included if you buy the Mitch All Together CD, though.

u/Unistrut · 8 pointsr/Ashens

Oh shit - Spaced Out is this

Featuring both William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy.

u/edgarsupertramp · 8 pointsr/hmmm

This is where the idea came from. Maybe. Probably.
Great album. Would recommend song railroad bill. Super meta. Also so far so good on his album proud dad.

u/Intense_Jack · 8 pointsr/funny
u/612WolfAvenue · 5 pointsr/boburnham

Lets not forget about his first cd as well. It comes with a dvd with his original Comedy Central presents and some old music videos.

u/HittingSmoke · 5 pointsr/scifi

If you want to see something absolutely delightful from Seth that isn't dumb jokes, check out his album.

u/StoneGoldX · 5 pointsr/television

Don't call it a comeback.

No, really. Don't. He's doing a benefit concert to help Thomas' nephew, not doing another movie or anything. Don't get me wrong, it's awesome, but this is only slightly more of a return than his CD of klezmer music.

u/SnowblindAlbino · 5 pointsr/GenX

>We bought it on DVD so we could play it for our kids,

I had the VHS tapes from a decade earlier so used those with our kids (also college age now) but later bought the DVDs too. My kids know every one of the SHR eps and we still break into the songs on road trips. We also had the tribute CD in the car most of the time.

u/Galifreyan2012 · 5 pointsr/movies

He has an album

u/Sektor7g · 5 pointsr/listentothis

I own the album. It's really good. Surprisingly, really really good.

Edit: To introduce the album to a friend, I played track 4 for her and asked what she thought. Response- "I think it's unfair that a William Shatner song just made me cry."

u/Derkanus · 4 pointsr/pics

He did release another album just this year.

u/countrymud · 3 pointsr/AdviceAnimals
u/jackthm · 3 pointsr/AdviceAnimals
u/jello_aka_aron · 3 pointsr/Music

There are tons. First, there's only 1 actual album, Grace. Other official releases include:

  • Live at Sin-e both in a short EP form and the multi-disc full set that's linked.
  • Sketches (For My Sweetheart the Drunk) which is mostly stuff from early sessions of what would have been his second album.
  • Songs to No One 1991-1992 which is material from before the release of Grace. Some earlier versions of stuff that ended up on Grace, then some other songs that are not available elsewhere.

    Then there's a number of live CDs and DVDs that pretty much all have a cover song or two that isn't available elsewhere. Beyond that there's probably another.. oh 40 or so different covers or very different versions of his songs floating around the net. My Jeff extras folder has nearly a hundred tracks in it. Highlights for me include the four songs by Tim Buckley, his father, that he performed at a [tribute event](, his reading of the Poe poem Ulalume from the cd Closed on Account of Rabies, and Satisfied Mind (though they pretty much all are wonderful).

Remember to suggest for next week. Also who would like a RMVF Playlist? And for those Weird Al fans like myself out there his new Album "Mandatory Fun" just came out, you can pick up a Physical Copy on Amazon or a Digital Copy on iTunes.

u/Scops · 3 pointsr/funny

Not as good as his first two CDs, but it works if you need your Mitch fix. It was compiled by Lyn (or was it Lynn?) after his death.


u/Hergan · 3 pointsr/offbeat

I've heard it off of his CD Mitch All Together.

u/STUN_Runner · 3 pointsr/atheism

How about the audio CD of Julia Sweeney's Letting Go of God?

It's as accessible as anything, is funny, and will also give her some insight into what you've been going through.

u/OfMonstersAndSuicide · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I'm a student too and I'm only in my first year but I'm also freaked out about this ;~;

  1. My first day of college last August. I'm not good at making friends and I didn't have any friends in any of my classes. I also sort of panic when I'm alone in a crowd of people. I was kinda panicking silently during my first class, but I actually made several friends by the end of the day. So, things went better than expected.

  2. A CD from one of my favorite comedians. Obviously funny.

  3. Don't sweat the petty stuff and don't pet the sweaty stuff

  4. Calm down. Everything will work out, dear o:

  5. Surprises are pretty awesome o:

  6. Can't wait~!

    Thanks for the contest o:
u/funnymatt · 2 pointsr/Standup

Thanks- I've helped friends get their albums out, and now that I've worked on mine, I figured it would be good to document all the steps I had to take to do it. It's not hard, but there are a lot of little things that you want to make sure get taken care of.

  1. Splitting the tracks was natural for me based on the way I planned out my set. I pretty much knew where the splits were going to be before I recorded it. I had bits that I knew would work well together, and I arranged them so they would be after one another, allowing me to make them be on the same track. I'm not much of a one-liner type, so I didn't have the issue of putting completely different jokes one after another, and I had pretty natural stopping points for each. If I was, I'd probably just do a few jokes per track. If I had a callback that was just a couple jokes after the first one, I'd try to keep those on the same track. Think of the tracks as stand-alone releases. Try to make it so that someone will get all the jokes even if they never heard the earlier jokes on the album. Check out how Hedberg handled it on Mitch All Together:
  2. I think I got across all the major things people should do- record more than one show, do some test recording, hire some help if at all possible. There are always things I'd want to do differently. I'm not wild about the camera angle we had on one of the shots, and I wish we had zoomed in a bit more, but the angle I'd really like to have wasn't physically possible to get in the room I was in. I wish I had run all of the audio recording onto a digital audio recorder so I didn't have to sync it all later. That was a giant pain in the ass. But in the grand scheme of things, for a project with essentially no budget, I'm very happy with what I've got as an end result.
  3. I've sent it off for online distribution, but it's not officially released anywhere until May 9th, so I won't know for a while what the numbers are. I made enough off the door at the shows we recorded to pay the camera crew, so I was able to record it for essentially nothing. It was worth it for me just to have a good 45 minute demo tape that I can now send to bookers. Until now, all the good tape that I've had has been 20-25 minutes, so I'm happy about that. It was also nice to do that much time here in LA- it's pretty rare to get to do that much stage time for me, since I largely feature on the road right now, and I'm hoping this tape will help me get into rooms as a headliner.
u/QuickPhix · 2 pointsr/StandUpComedy

Some of that (guess which parts!) was from his album I don't mean to insult you but you look like Bobcat Goldthwaith

Some good stuff on there.

u/KhansWrath · 2 pointsr/Music

Apparently the album is released on july 25nd in my country (Germany)....So I just bought the MP3 version for 8€, which is already available.

Also "The Essential WAY" album is pretty rad!

u/BlunderLikeARicochet · 2 pointsr/atheism

Julia Sweeney's monologue: Letting Go of God

I know of no other source that describes atheism so gently.

u/cafink · 2 pointsr/atheism

> Watch the series on YouTube - it's entertaining.

Or, even better, support the artist by purchasing the DVD or CD.

u/gds15 · 2 pointsr/gamegrumps



CD Baby


Take your pick! I'm pretty sure both are offering MP3 downloads with the CD, Amazon through their AutoRip thing and CD Baby sends a code.

u/celticsfan93 · 2 pointsr/Starbomb
u/seed1000000 · 2 pointsr/boburnham

There’s a half hour Comedy Central special that precedes Words Words Words. It’s available on the DVD that accompanies this CD, which was all of the songs Bo wrote in high school. The DVD also has all of his old YouTube videos from his bedroom.

u/Peralton · 2 pointsr/videos

McFarlane recently put out a jazz album with some legit guests:

u/xzxzzx · 2 pointsr/atheism

For those wondering why it ends early, this is only part of Julia Sweeney's solo performance.

You can get the full thing on CD:

u/caseyl · 2 pointsr/nostalgia

He made a country album, too

u/narcoticfx · 2 pointsr/atheism

Couldn't find the printed version so I got the audiobook. It's very, very good. By the way, is your granny familiar with Julia Sweeney? Tell her that I recommend Letting go God. It's hilarious, I'm sure she will enjoy it. (Tell her she can find it on torrent sites and such)

u/[deleted] · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

This is my chosen album!

My guilty pleasure song is definitely "Boyfriend" by Justin Bieber. I don't even know why I like it. But I love it. I don't know how to work the word reunion into a sentence.

u/Sasken · 2 pointsr/funny
u/matthank · 2 pointsr/todayilearned

I can't stand his TV shows or anything he writes...I am only interested in his vocal work. He was very good in Hellboy II: The Golden Army as Johann, the vapor guy in a suit.

And I bought his CD.

u/ZachSka87 · 1 pointr/videos

There is, sir. It releases tomorrow and it is glorious.

u/smoothcam72 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

part of this collection that i've purchased and lost twice.

Welcome home Kalani!

And I don't really have a hometown. I've moved so much that no place really feels like I'm 'from' there. I am rather fond of my new town though. It's just got a nice but not overwhelming southern hospitality feeling.

And I actually have a request this week if I win! Usually I like to be surprised but I'd love this Seth MacFarlane album cause I've been wearing out my phone battery trying to play it while I'm in the car.

u/GuyFawkes99 · 1 pointr/todayilearned

Thanks, but I was using Mitch's spelling.

u/the-friendly-hermit · 1 pointr/LadyBoners
u/Scientismist · 1 pointr/atheism

The easiest "read" for introducing atheism to a Christian is probably a non-read -- Julia Sweeney's Letting Go of God. It is available as CD audio or on DVD video. I have both, and actually prefer her audio performance. The first 15 minutes of it are available as a TED Talk.

u/masasuka · 1 pointr/startrek

I'll just leave this here

u/kaerf · 1 pointr/pics

He also made a CD a while back: Agoraphobic Cowboy

u/Jakeman2142 · 1 pointr/startrek

I have this from Christmas:

It has like 4 or 5 songs from Shatner. They're quite funny to listen to in contrast with Nimoy's singing.

u/SpaceRook · 1 pointr/atheism

If it makes you feel better, Seth MacFarlane released a musical CD of himself singing classic big band songs. He is capable of doing things that don't involve Hitler babies and killer chickens.

u/Doogan · 1 pointr/AskReddit

Jack Kerouac. He did this alot, recording his poems/prose on top of jazz pianos and saxes. amazon link. Maybe you can find a recording of him reading without any instruments so you can play on top of it.

u/Atroxa · 1 pointr/AskReddit

You should have crossposted this to the /r/startrek.

USS Enterprise cake is a necessity.

But the real fun comes in the food the various alien races eat.

Romulan Ale is a very potent bluish drink. There is an energy drink on the market called "Romulan Ale" but it was used to promote the movie. You can find a few cans of it here but your best bet is to make some using lemonade, blue curacao, vodka and triple sec.

A really good source for you though would be to go to K'Tesh's Klingon Recipe Pages. It's a really crappy website...not gonna lie but I think it used to be on geocities. You'll get some good ideas there for food and drinks.

As for music, there are a number of good choices. I highly recommend Spaced Out: The Best of Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner. It's pretty hilarious with lots of Trek-inspired music. You can also get all the movie soundtracks. It's too bad but I really don't know of any Klingon music available for download or for purchase.

Think Geek was selling the TOS Tunic Tees - not sure if they have any left in stock. Matching outfits!

As for games, dabo was quite popular at Quark's on Deep Space 9. Players bet to win bars of gold pressed latinum. Dabo is similar to roulette. Get a roulette wheel and bet with gold wrapped candy bars?

Another game that was incredibly popularized in the Trek universe was poker - specifically in TNG.

Can I come to your dad's party? This sounds like so much fun. I wish my dad was into Trek.

u/feigned-interest · 1 pointr/Music

You should check out A John Waters Christmas. Not necessarily new songs, but great Christmas songs that nobody has heard of.

u/robrem · 1 pointr/youtube

This recording is included in the incredibly wonderful Kerouac collection by Rhino, which, if you're a Kerouac fan, you owe it to yourself to get. After hearing his voice read the text, it forever changed the way I "heard" the writing in my head as I read Kerouac. And now, (one of) my favorite Kerouac quotes from my sullen teen years:
>"no more
dissipation, it's time for me to quietly watch the world and even enjoy it,
first in woods like these, then just calmly walk and talk among people of
the world, no booze, no drugs, no binges, no bouts with beatniks and drunks
and junkies and everybody, no more I ask myself the question O why is God
torturing me, that's it, be a loner, travel, talk to waiters only, in fact,
in Milan, Paris, just talk to waiters, walk around, no more self-imposed
agony... it's time to think and watch and keep concentrated on the fact that
after all this whole surface of the world as we know it now will be covered
with the silt of a billion years in time.. . Yay, for this, more aloneness"

Click on the search box(looks like a rectangle near the top with "All" on

the left and "Go" on the right).

When you see the vertical line blinking, type in:

Starbomb CD

Then Press "Return", "Enter", or click the "Go" button on the right.

Look for the image that looks like the current album art.

Read the Description.

If it says MP3, that is the wrong one.

If it says CD, that is the correct one.

Click on the Album Art and you will be taken to the product page.

There will be an option to view the MP3 page instead, do not click that.

u/HaiKarate · 1 pointr/TrueAtheism

I would suggest The Book of Genesis Illustrated by R. Crumb. Robert Crumb was an underground comix (with an "x") artist who became popular in the 60's, because he was very counter-culture. It's not an atheist book; in fact, I think Crumb intended it to be some sort of homage to the Bible. But, whereas every other illustrated Bible has sought to polish the stories through their imagery, Crumb presents a very gritty, "warts and all" type of work, and it can be a little jarring at times. Intelligent folks will get the message loud and clear, though, how bizarre the Old Testament really is.

Lighter fare is Julia Sweeney's Letting Go of God. Sweeney is a former SNL comedian, and this comes from her one-person show of the same name. It's funny stuff, and it shows how so many Christians have just glossed over the history of the faith without thinking critically about it. It's also available on YouTube.

u/Jim-Jones · 1 pointr/TrueAtheism

FWIW, not audio but I like to start here:

The Christ

John E. Remsberg

Chapter 2

Silence of Contemporary Writers

For audio, how about this:

[Letting Go of God - Julia Sweeney] (

Also in video or book form.

u/wirecan · 1 pointr/vinyl

Seconded. Great choice of songs, played well and fun to listen to. Another good one from recent years is Aimee Mann's "Drifter in the Snow."

A couple more recent compilations I like are Psych-Out Christmas, "A John Waters Christmas" and "Where Will You Be Christmas Day?".

The all-time greats everyone should have are Phil Spector, Vince Guaraldi, Bing Crosby and a rockin' oldies compilation of your choice.

u/Elfman72 · 1 pointr/videos

This is what I thought about while listening to his album. I just couldn't get the image of Brian out of my head while listening to it.

u/Thuryn · 1 pointr/funny

There's a DVD you can get of the originals, and there are a bunch of pop stars who have done covers. The R&B version of "Mr. Morton" is really good (and I'm not a big fan of hip-hop or R&B).

Found it. Rock it, Skee-Lo.

Edit: Found where these come from: Schoolhouse Rock! Rocks from Atlantic Records. Most of the tracks have been put together with the original cartoons on YouTube as well. I'm so impressed with how well some of these were done.

I just bought Schoolhouse Rock! Rocks at my local used CD store for $5.

Hearing Blind Melon's performance of Three Is a Magic Number is still pretty invigorating.

This reading is from a CD of various people reading Poe. The CD is titled Closed on Account of Rabies.

I would wager that "Oh Little Town of Bethlehem" wouldn't be that great in metal?

Seriously, I think it's because a lot of Christmas music was written back when they used the genre that was popular at the time. Then, it was "covered" into a new genre, etc... people tend to want Christmas music to be something they can sing to, stores want it to be non "threatening and comforting." Religions are picky about what they like, and a lot of Christmas music is non-secular. Jazz and easy listening is more soothing.

If you are looking for alternatives, try searching amazon "genre and christmas music" and see what pops up. I found this punk rock album.
