“Kids never get a break…except for like, from everything…” In Billy Kelly’s first comedy album, titled “My First Comedy Album,” kids don’t get a break from laughing, either. Parents get a break from having to censor comedy albums with this family-appropriate FUNNY collection of observations from the musician well known to Kids Corner audiences. Ever think about your name? Ever want it to be Mr. Poopy Strongman? You might after listening to this delightful album. Like any great album, “My First Comedy Album” holds together as a total work as well as in individual bits. Kelly is a natural, as is the delighted response of his multi-generational audience. His observations bear repeated listening, like any great album.
