AllMusic Review by

In the '60s and '70s, actor, singer, musician, and dancer Jimmy Lynch (aka "Mr. Motion") enjoyed a lucrative sideline as a nightclub comic, performing as "the Funky Tramp," a raggedy street persona who was unafraid to speak his mind about love, sex, race, politics, and anything else that crossed his mind. Lynch's standup work earned him a loyal family, and he cut a series of comedy albums documenting his live shows; That Funky Tramp in a Nite Club: Tramp Time, Vol. 1 was his first LP, recorded during an engagement at the El Grotto Club in Battle Creek, Michigan, with Lynch backed by a small R&B combo as he talks all kinds of trash and gets a lot of laughs. Outrageous and off-color, That Funky Tramp in a Nite Club is for mature listeners only.
