Album Notes

Liner Note Authors: Roy Carr; Roy Carr.

Del Close is an unsung hero of American comedy; in the 1950s, he was one of the early members of the St. Louis branch of the Compass Players, a theater troupe that would relocate from St. Louis to Chicago and in time change its name to the Second City, and after a few years in New York City, he returned to Chicago and SECOND CITY, becoming a cast member, and later director, and mentor to many. 1959's HOW TO SPEAK HIP teamed him with fellow comic John Brent, who plays brain-cloudy beatnik Geets Romo to Close's (relative) straight man as the two converse about the finer points of hipster speech patterns while instructing the listener on how to embrace the language of cool. Fans of classic comedy albums will certainly want to pick this up, and anyone with a weakness for the thinking person's cultural phenomena of the '50s will, like, dig it.
