type:
Music
Current Status:
In Season
performer:
Adam Sandler
genre:
Comedy

We gave it a C-

The hyperactive comedian serves up 17 songs and sketches on an album that sounds like it was written and recorded in a single afternoon.

Sandler’s skits are better, and nowhere is his unique talent for playing man-child grotesques more giddily applied than in ”Whitey,” a 16-minute exercise in doltish humor. Steve Martin was right: Comedy is not pretty. C
