BRUCE MCCULLOCH / Drunk Baby Project [2002]

Bruce McCulloch, of Canadian comedy troupe The Kids In The Hall, was always a dark and creepy little fellow. His second comedy album, Drunk Baby Project, only confirms this.
Backed by reverberating guitar work from Shadowy Men On A Shadowy Planet's Brian Connelly and The Odds' Craig Northey, McCulloch takes jabs at religion, sex, loneliness, alcoholism and sports fanatics through off-kilter poetic monologues.
Even though it's not nearly as consistently funny as his first album, Shame-based Man, Bruce still has a few really good zingers here. With that said, there's two tracks on this album that are light years funnier than anything he's ever done.. McCulloch's humor isn't for everybody, in fact very few, but those who get it love it.
