Wow, we got our first negative review. Kinda nice to have it done with. Almost three years at this and so far nothing but glowing reviews. The negative review was made much worse because it was written by a friend and he was asshole enough to mention that I'd been calling him and asking for a review. BY NAME he mentions me. All three names, of course. It suck because I never called and asked him for a review. I assumed that since one of our members works at the paper they couldn't review us. I was calling asking him to listen to it because I wanted his feedback, because we're friends. My other friends can tell ya, I've been bugging all of them too. So, it was a pretty harsh sting in that way. Otherwise it wasn't too bad. He mentions The Firesign theatre as an example of a good comedy troupe. I HATE the Firesign Theatre, so that's almost a compliment. I should mention that we've gotten some rave reviews as well. For instance Robert Berry at writes.

"I can't stand what passes for comedy CDs these days. I like to see a standup comedian in action, not just listen to a soundtrack of their act. That's why Sacramento's own I Can't Believe It's Not Comedy Troupe's debut CD "Funnier Than God" is so great to hear. Using a mix of old time radio style and irreverent (but surprisingly non-profane) humor, the crew brings to mind some of the funnier bits of Monty Python and vintage Saturday Night Live. Highlights of the CD involve a couple episodes of "Naked Man", a crime-fighter who takes advantage of the discomfort he causes super-villains by fighting them naked, and "Pizza Sluts" which takes a funny angle on the real-life aspects of making porn movies."
