Cool Guys Don't Wear Pink
What Serious Comedy is saying about Safecracker:
You can take Safecracker to the bank. This is an excellent stand-up comedy CD and comic
Brad Trackman is one funny guy. Trackman is a very audience interactive comic whose forte is relationship comedy. Recorded at the DC Improv in front of what sounds like a smallish but very into it audience, Safecracker is a solid CD you will be going back too.
It is hard to make relationship comedy really fresh and keep it interesting but Trackman manages both on Safecracker. The title for this stand-up comedy CD comes from the comic’s centerpiece joke which is that when it comes to relationships men have to be safecracker to get to a woman. This is a very funny bit and the comedian has a few callbacks to it but it smart enough not to have this joke overstay its welcome.
Even the best relationship comedy is only as good as the character the comic uses for the jokes. Trackman comes across as a very likeable kind of guy and, bonus, does not always go for the easy 'men are clueless' set-up.
There is more to Safecracker than women vs. men jokes. The show also features some very good observational and biographical comedy. The circumcision joke is one you will definitely be repeating to your Jewish friends. That Trackman is a clean comic is something some folks will appreciate.
Safecracker is an excellent CD.
Cool Guys Don't Wear Pink is the follow up cd to Brad Trackman's debut cd Safecracker. Brad is now married and has a son. He's all grown up and his comedy has equally matured and evolved.
In this album, recorded at the famed DC Improv, he talks about being confused in his thick glasses for being developmentally disabled while in line at the supermarket express lane. Definitely a new staple in Brad's comedic arsenal.
The title of this CD came from an interaction with a man in the audience who is wearing a bright pink shirt. It's just one of those great back and forth dialogues that was fortunately captured. This album is so smooth and a real tribute to the artistry of Brad Trackman.
