Q: Do you remember the album “That’s Not Funny, That’s Sick!” and where can I find it?
A: I do not know where to find copies of the 1977 NatLamp LP “That’s Not Funny, That’s Sick!” (it was originally issued as an LP, and later on cassette) but it is available on compact disc from Amazon.com.
For those unfamiliar with this album, here is a quick run down:
“That’s Not Funny, That’s Sick!” was released in 1977 on Label 21 Records. It stars Brian Doyle-Murray, Bill Murray, Christopher Guest and features Richard Belzer, Rhonda Coullet, Gracie Whitebread, Pat Bright, Bob Dryden, George Agoglia, Tony Hendra, Sid Davis, Larraine Newman, Anna Uppstrom, John Dunn, and John Weidman. It was written by Brian Doyle-Murray, Bill Murray, Richard Belzer, Christopher Guest, John Weidman, Bob Tischler, Tony Hendra, Harold Ramis, Doug Kenney, and Bruce McCall; produced and engineered by Bob Tischler. The cover illustration (the infamous double-amputee frog cartoon) was by Sam Gross. Bits include The Dick Ballentine Phone-In Show (Belzer), Listener-Sponsored Radio (Bill Murray), Mr. Roberts (Mr. Rogers parody with Guest and Bill Murray) where he interviews a bass player (my favorite line: Mr. Roberts: Well, we’re gonna go to the Magic Kingdom. Bass Player: Ah, no, man. It’s too early for me. I gotta drive.), “Height Report Disco” (Bill Murray and Donna Detroit), Humpback Whales with Gas (Hendra), 2015-Year-Old Man (Belzer), Monolithic Oil Corporation Spot, and others. Some of the bits originally aired on the National Lampoon Radio Hour.
