Todd Berry, From Heaven
Label: Comedy Central Records

It takes a great comedian to make Mick Jagger reading his e-mail into a joke. Luckily, Todd Barry is up for the job. Barry's deadpan delivery (and attempted English accent) are hilariously funny throughout the e-mail bit and the rest of From Heaven. The album is Barry's third on Comedy Central Records and it finds him holding forth on a range of topics that include the ridiculousness of rating a hotel based on the sweet… read more »

Great stuff. I listen to a lot of comics and Todd Barry is at the top of my list of favorites. This is a great album.

I love todd barry however i think this record is a lot weaker than his prior two. i believe it's got something to do with his growing comfort with digging his heals in on a topic. don't get me wrong this album is certainly worth your time but to call it his best yet just seems silly to me.

his best yet

I'm a big Todd fan, this is by far his best. Hysterical start to finish.

Todd is pure funny

Todd Barry is as unique as he is funny. His cadence, tone and delivery is honed to enhance his bits beyond the sum of their parts.

They Say All Music Guide

Comedian Todd Barry isn’t so much tortured as terminally ticked. His delivery is quiet, laid-back, kinda creepy, and comes with plenty of acid, but on his third album that uneasy feeling comes on less often than before. Here, Barry communicates and connects with his audience like a true pro. Mundane everyday this-and-that like shopping at Trader Joe’s or Old Navy are now hot topics, and Barry’s ability to improvise has grown, putting him and the widely appreciative audience captured here in tune. Thanks to the improved pacing of the unsettling and strange material, where to laugh is all the more obvious, pointing him in the direction of Steven Wright when it always seemed he could have gone Andy Kaufman. His routine doesn’t dwell on any topic for too long and he makes sharp right turns with abandon. Still, when he goes from discussing his own CDs to imagining Bruce Springsteen getting stood up right before dreaming aloud about running into George W. Bush at party, it’s a surprisingly smooth ride. Above it all, Barry is sharp, funny, and able to point out the absurd things in life most everyone else skips over. His forever beaten down and bitter attitude makes him an acquired taste, but this is his strongest work yet so if you don’t like From Heaven than you just don’t like Todd Barry. – David Jeffries
