AllMusic Review by

Richard Jeni is one of the funnier, lesser-known comics in America. His Greatest Bits CD is about the length of a television special, but its economy makes for an enjoyable experience. Richard Jeni is similar to Jerry Seinfeld, but a bit more jaded. "Kiss Your Butt Buenos Noches," "Cooking With Bill," and "I Love Condoms" are funny but lack a universal brilliance to elevate his observations beyond simple jokes. None of the tracks are especially offensive and his witty energy is entertainment, but not too memorable. Definitely worth a listen; a solid fun time, but not a classic.
