Comedy Reviews - CD - Morgan Murphy - Irish Goodbye

Irish Goodbye

Irish Goodbye
Morgan Murphy
Comedy MP3 album
New Wave Dynamics 2014

Cindy Lauper's “She's so unusual” tag kept coming to mind while listening to Morgan Murphy's comedy mp3 album Irish Goodbye. Murphy has so many kinds of bits and different tones you are kept off balance and constantly surprised.  This is an album where a listener will find something new listening after listening.

Murphy goes for the dark/absurd bit like her mother telling her she is worthless while beating her with her trophie, quick one-liners such as “I did not drink the entire time I was pregnant … the longest four days of my life.”, and odd biographical stories.

Most of Murphy's material is mostly very short but she can really build on a premise when she feels like it. The Planned Parenthood has a killer punchline.

If there is one thing about this comic that does not work is her frequent use of Ahhhhhhhh before she gets to the next joke. It becomes a bit grating.

I would pay good money to see Morgan Murphy live.
