AllMusic Review by

Martin's routine about the boxer being knocked out is the highlight of the just-average album. His skit titled "Should I Fight Mike Tyson If He Slaps My Girlfriend or My Mother" gets boring long before Martin comes to a conclusion. He loves to poke fun at celebrities like Michael Jackson, Luther Vandross, Geraldo Riviera and Oprah Winfrey, and spews jokes about marijuana, gays, sex, condoms, and the admission that he "ain't packing" (referring to his endowment). All this may be side-splitting in person, but the CD lacks spirit without his animation.
