STYLE: Comedy
RATING 4 4 4 4
LABEL: DaySpring

Reviewed by Ian Bosworth

There is also a cassette and CD available, but quite frankly they're a waste of the earth's resources. Mike Warnke has an unusual style by anyone's standards, but this recording from a performance in Georgia, USA, is tedious and certainly not a patch on earlier works. I'd rather be telling you about 'Totally Weird' (Dayspring 8015030692) which is genuinely funny. Instead we have an over-long collection of humorous anecdotes, many of which lose a lot of impact because they are for an American audience. No doubt it will be quite a hit, especially for Warnke devotees Stateside, but as he hasn't been caught at his best, there's no guarantee of that. As previ­ously there is a serious gospel message at the end of the event, but I think everyone watching at home will have gone to sleep long before.

I don't know who wrote this review, but you are absolutely wrong!!! Going out of my mind is one of his best "records". I love Mike Warnke and I think his stuff is hilarious and true. He gets very important messages across in very funny ways. I think you need to re-evaluate your review, because he is by far, one of the best comedians around.
