AllMusic Review by

Phil Foster's live album from Grossinger's ("recorded on location") is still a pretty funny record years later, even if a lot of the humor -- about infidelity, the beat generation, juvenile deliquents, and so on -- may seem overly familiar from reuse by other comics and in other contexts. Mostly his work is just a string of quirky stories about life in Brooklyn that call to mind very slightly more adult versions of the movie humor of the day, along with a comically garrulous delivery that's always good for raising the laugh quotient.
