PUNCHLINE MAGAZINE REVIEW
"PLENTY OF BELLY LAUGHS THROUGHOUT THIS NEARLY 40-MINUTE DISC."
author: William Kraken – Punchline Magazine
In an effort to convince the audience that they are just talking to friends and not performing a string of premeditated jokes, some comics stock their sets with bits based on believable premises. The idea is that whether these bits are pure fiction, 100 percent true or a combination of those scenarios, the listener theoretically should believe every word coming out of the comic’s mouth. As in, it’s funny because it’s true. Then some comics deal in the absurd, which is when realistic constructs are abandoned in favor of bizarre musings.On Funny Mother Flower, Brooklyn-based comic, D.C. Benny combines reality and absurdity – many times in the same joke – and proves the marriage of these strategies makes for a valuable formula. This recipe is strong in effect when he tells the D.C. Improv about the time he took a yoga class at his wife’s urging. Forced to wear pajama pants because he had no clean sweats, things go awry when a heated exchange with another class member results in his dick popping out of his pants.Absurdity also meets reality when Benny tells his hilarious cab story, wherein a New York City cab ride turns into an “Indian Nascar event” when another taxi driver challenges Benny’s driver to a race across the Brooklyn Bridge. Benny also finds humor in the mundane, like when he chews over his experiences with his dentist: “The dentist brings me into the office and starts digging in my mouth. He’s like ‘There’s some bleeding from your gums. You must not be brushing.’” Benny’s response? “That wouldn’t have anything to do with that metal fucking hook, would it?” And if you’ve seen Benny’s Comedy Central Presents, you’ll recognize his now classic bit about how he was forced to take Luwanda, a 300-pound cheerleader, to the prom. Hint: That’s what happens when you grow up poor in Washington, DC and Popeyes biscuits – which were as good or better than cash – are used against you.Throughout Funny Mother Flower, Benny does a great job grounding his material with situations his audience could relate to but then adding hilarious fantasy in a way that his fans could never do on their own. The result: plenty of belly laughs throughout this nearly 40-minute disc.

D.C. BENNY DESERVES A PRIMETIME SHOW
author: Tony D
From the moment you click play on your stereo you are already laughing from jokes DC Benny is making, the entire CD is too funny. The bits were he is interacting with the audience are too funny, way to funny. The CD is perfect and keeps you asking for more every time, I've listen to it so many times since I've gotten it last week. It would have been great to see him in person, like a DVD just to see how funny he looked while doing everything but the CD allows you to imagine it in your head and still gets you laughing. DC Your the man, keep producing this stuff because it is the best stuff I've heard in a while.
MORE, PLEASE! FABULOUSLY FUNNY
Great CD--we're still reciting lines from it--and laughing. Leaves us wanting MORE from DC Benny, so get working on another one SOON!
DC BENNY DELIVERS!

A hilarious CD, leaving me anxious for more. DC Benny is quick-witted and clever, and this has left quite a few people I've played it for busting a gut! If you've never heard his material, get this ASAP, and check out his website, for that has some cool clips as well!
AMAZING TO SAY THE LEAST!
DC Benny is a comic genius. I laughed the whole time.and when the cd ended I played it again. There's alot of lackluster comics out there, and DC is definately NOT one of them. He's genuinely funny, just look at his discussion with the hecklers. When he releases a new cd I'll definately buy it.
I put the cd in my player the moment I received it in the mail and it didn't disappoint. All I can say is, I need MORE!!! I want MORE!!! DC's humor and impressions are so funny and such a portrait of NYC. I'll be waiting for your new CD, DVD or whatever project you will be doing next.
Very funny, not too dirty. Only complaint is it's too short.
GENIUS, HAD ME DRIVING OFF THE ROAD IN LAUGHTER
unagi GOOD!! god i laugh at it every time, i've already shared this cd w/all of my friends. your fan club grows my friend
