Robert Klein - Child of the 50s (1972)

Robert Klein was considered revolutionary in the seventies. He influenced countless comedians that flooded the onslaught of comedy clubs that started in the seventies and exploded in the eighties. However, Klein was a victim of his own influence. Much of this record sounds old hat now, featuring material that has since been done to death by others (shopping for condoms etc.), but Klein was the first. This record is also notable for being on the BRUT label - yes, the same people who made the cologne.
