From the Press Release:

When Laughter Is A Powerful Weapon Vol. 2 is released in early December 2005, it will be, perhaps, the greatest single comedy music compilation that has ever been released. To make this CD even better all the profits from the project will go directly to the American Red Cross to aid in relief for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. This CD will feature the absolute best artists in the world of Comedy Music coming together for a very worthy cause to show that Laughter is, indeed, a Powerful Weapon.

The biggest name in funny music, “Weird Al” Yankovic has donated a rare version of his song Happy Birthday that has been newly remixed for the first time for this CD. Yankovic’s drummer, Jon “Bermuda” Schwartz, has donated a cover of the song Mr. Ghost Goes To Town he recorded 30 years ago. Barnes & Barnes the authors of one of the most popular comedy songs of all time, Fish Heads, have donated the first track they’ve recorded in many years Granny & The Kid. The 27 Track CD also features songs from other comedy music heavy hitters Steven Banks, Henry Phillips, The Four Postmen, Carla Ulbrich and Rob Paravonian among others. The CD also includes an EXCLUSIVE episode of the popular Podcast, The Radio Adventures Of Dr. Floyd. The CD also includes a special introduction by legendary Comedy DJ, Dr. Demento.

The CD was the brain-child of Jaye of Druidsfire Productions who along with the founders of Funny Musicians For A Serious Cause, Grant Baciocco and Chris Mezzolesta, put the plan into action. Grant Baciocco dealt with finding artists and getting clearances for the songs on the CD while Chris Mezzolesta mastered the CD for production. Funny Musicians produced a CD after the events of September 11, 2001, which has raised over $2000 for the Twin Towers Orphan Fund. The CD will sell for $15 at online music retailer CDBaby.com.

Great album
Great album. Some songs I would not have chosen but a great compilation of many artists with many backgrounds!

C. Haught

Good stuff!
This album has many exemplary tracks, like "you were wrong cabinet sanchez" and "My Cat Is Afraid Of The Vacuum Cleaner" But the best reason to buy this album is unquestionably the remix of "Weird Al" Yankovic's "Happy Birtday". This is an important part of Al's history.

A big batch of funny


For goodness' sake -- it's 2 dozen funny songs! That's a treasure trove for the grabbing. The producers should do this every year.

Dino-Mike

Perfect Compilation
This was the best comedy music compilation I have ever heard. This is definately worth the buy!!!

John Richeson

We need more weapons
If we can laugh with each other then maybe we can have peace. This is a start. Have yo ever seen two kids play? It does not matter if there parents get along or not, kids just want to have fun. This albumn is that. We all need to remember the laughter.

Terri

This CD rocks
All the songs on this CD are Hilarious.

Derwood Bowen

Awesome stuff!
This CD features a mouthful of hilarious hits, and is one of the best CD's you could ever get. The fact that it helps out a great cause is icing on the cake!

Bill O'Hara

Great
Loads of fun stuff here!

Carol

Spectacular mix!
I love this CD. The brand new stereo remix of Weird Al's track is well worth it alone. But to add "Mad Scientists United", "Mr Ghost", "My Cabbie Is A Madman" among others... WOW. I was laughing my face off.

Wonderful Funny Music
This is one of the best compilations of humorous music I have come across. With several songs unreleased elsewhere it is a find for any lover of comedy music. Even those who normally dislike comedy music will find something here they enjoy.
