• Spade is relaxed, confident, and very funny here. He balances his hateful-little-bastard persona with nice amounts of self-deprecation; coming up with a classic set. His subject matter(gay rock bands, "spanktro-vision", dirtball drug-dealers,etc.) isn't particularly important- but Spade makes it all work. I really liked his bit about rock bands talking to the audience- telling Michael Stipe to "sing Radio Free Europe and beat it!!", when Stipe just wants to whine about how horrible his rich life is. "Just sing the god-damned songs, buddy!!!!". This set is almost 10 years old-and none of the material is dated. Hate him or really hate him; Spade is a funny dude.
