ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"If Tim set out to reveal more about himself and be vulnerable on his new CD, Scatterbrain, he succeeded. He pulls off the delicate trick of turning inward without losing his persona. He is still The Reverend. Now, rather than pointing the finger at others, he’s pointing it at himself. Instead of looking at obscure news stories and making them universal, he takes something universal, the birth of a child, and makes it his (and his wife’s, lest we forget). It’s smart and fearless. Mr. Hicks, this is Mr. Cosby."
-The Comedians.org
December, 2006

"On "Scatterbrain," McIntire addresses the ups and downs of a working comic's life. The bulk of the album is all laughs -- solid material on everything from having kids to the war on terror, killer stuff from one of Boston's most reliable comedy veterans -- but it's the bonus track, the one labeled "Nagasaki," that's getting the most attention. The nearly half-hour track is nothing short of a complete hell gig..."
-Nick Zaino
The Boston Globe, April 13, 2006

"'Scatterbrain' is a brilliant and hilarious piece of work. But with Tim McIntire that is to be expected. With his inclusion of 'Nagasaki,' Tim has demonstrated to the Bush regime both how to get out in front of a story and why only innocents, at risk to harm from exposure, should be allowed to declassify information about themselves."
- Barry Crimmins
Air America Radio

"Any discussion of Boston's new comedy talent begins and ends with Tim McIntire. He's sharp, insightful, smart, energetic, prolific, respected, and revolutionary...he's simply the real deal. Buy this CD and brag that you were into Tim McIntire before the rest of the world caught up!"

-Rick Jenkins
Owner, The Comedy Studio
Harvard Square, Massachusetts

buy it for world orgasm day
I've got a problem with most stand-up comedians. Most of them (and by "them" I mean hacks) get on stage, and proceed to complain about their miserable lives, how they can't get a date or why everybody hates them, and then badger the audience for not being smart enough to think this is funny.

Not the case with Tim McIntire.

Tim is outright funny. Tim is smart, but not pompous; dirty, but not disgusting; foul, but not unjustly so. Most importantly, Tim is not that Nazi in the glasses from "Radiers."

Tim's comedy is both sublime and ridiculous. His subjects range from what it would be like hanging out with Rumsfeld over beers to ordering his son the "Happy Ending" at Friendly's. I can't define pornography, but I know comedy when I see it. Tim is comedy...with a discreet, legal porn collection he probably keeps safely tucked away from his wife and two upstanding children.

Tim McIntire is a blue state. Or maybe he's a purple state. But since it's illegal to give our taxes to him, we should do the next best thing and buy his CD.

Tim McIntire is your tax dollars working for you.

The Rev doesn't disappoint! A great comedy CD investment!
The CD should be sold under Health and Fitness, with all the great ab work it encourages! This CD will keep you laughing for the whole darn thing. Tim McIntire tells the kind of jokes that will make you giggle days after hearing them (it's a good thing my friends already think I'm nuts). A friend recommended it, and I am taking that friend out for a nice dinner as a thank you. Might even let her supersize...

Damned funny stuff
So, honestly, it's a solid four stars worth of funny and you're gonna get your fifteen bucks worth over and over. But when I guy includes a bonus track like the one on this CD, he gets an extra star for sheer balls.

Matt B. Davis

Buy it!
The Reverend Tim's latest CD is for you if:

a) Want to hear one of the funniest comics who is not on national TV yet.
b) like title tracks that are subtle
c) are a fan of Hicks, Carlin, or Chris Rock
d) have ever been to the Comedy Studio in Boston
e) want to hear the ONLY bonus track in history of a comic live recording going down in flames (As funny as the good set)------------------------------------------

It is not for you if
a) Like comics where every punchline is followed up with jumping around and making funny noises
b) Like comics that do half of their punchlines in Spanish
c) Have never watched the news or read a paper

BRING THE PAIN!!!
Holy. sweet. suffering. Jesus on a crutch! I laughed so hard I had a miscarriage. Thanks Tim McIntire! Now, I don't have to think of a name for my baby! Get's my vote for comedy album of the year.

Great Instruction for Comedians (Who Have Only Had It Good)
I listened to Tim McIntire's disc this weekend (twice) and each time I found myself savoring equally the seamlessness in both sets he provided. Real education is afoot here.

I get the sense that deep down comedy has never really been about the paycheck for him. This is a performer who is really living the dream (and the nightmare, too). Enjoy.

A study in the life of a comedian
I myself am a new comic, and I've been buying more comedy albums lately to laugh and to learn about this new endeavor of mine. Tim McIntire's Scatterbrain showcased the good and the bad stuff, the good being tracks 1-11, where Tim muses on having kids(but in a tastefully non-mediocre way, especially with his profanity laced reaction to the birth!)family crises and Taco Bell, and self-satisfaction of the onanistic variety among other topics mined for laughs. The bad, in a very fascinating way, would be track 12, dubbed Nagasaki, where Tim McIntire plays a gig in Tyngsboro where very few laughs are generated, and not because Tim bombed; I liked the jokes he came out with on that cut. It's the ignorant dinner party snobs too interested in their food to have an attention span that ruined that gig. Every comedian, professional or amateur, should buy this album, especially for the Nagasaki track. It serves as a sobering reminder that one of these days, we'll be playing a place in Tyngsboro, or someplace just like Tyngsboro. Good laughs and hard reality in one package.

this CD kicks as much ass as a CD can kick
there's really no way to do a comedy CD justice by just talking about, but here goes a failed attempt anyway: mcintire's CD is full of comedy that's smart, well-crafted, well-delivered, and most importantly, hilarious... but don't just read reviews about it--get the full experience-- buy it and listen to it, and then be happy you did, which you will. be. happy. do it.
