Album Notes
Reviews are in on "Pure Polyester"...........see them below!

Playfully self-delusional, wildly entertaining, and possessing a booming voice dripping with insincerity, James P. Connolly has been described by industry professionals as a cross between a young Steve Martin and Troy McClure of “The Simpsons.” Unique in both performance and material, Connolly makes an unforgettable impact wherever he shows up. “It’s not about what happens to you in life, it’s all how you spin it, and present it back to yourself.” He explains. “I was at a wedding a few weeks ago and my buddy said I got so drunk I passed out on the floor. I said, ‘or I got hammered at that wedding but I only fell once!’”

Host of “Live from Here with James P. Connolly” on XM Channel 154 National Lampoon Comedy Radio, James has been a Finalist in every major comedy competition and festival entered, including Comedy Central’s “Laugh Riots”, the Boston Comedy Festival and the San Francisco International Comedy Competition. Called “an extraordinary talent”, and “as funny, quick and fresh as any comedian around today” by entertainment bookers, you may recognize him from many appearances on Comedy Central, HBO, host of VH1’s “Movie Obsessions”, a Grand Comedy Champion on Ed McMahon’s “Next Big Star”, SiTV, UPN, numerous National Commercials, voice over, multimedia, as well as weekly airplay on XM and Sirius Satellite Radio Comedy Channels.

A Harvard University graduate, former Marine Corps Infantry Officer, and television and radio host, James P. Connolly has amassed a colorful background that allows him to connect with audiences of any age. He recently appeared in the award winning Fox Searchlight Films, “The Act”, and his work has even taken him to the Cannes Film Festival where the Hollywood Reporter described his performances as “interactive perfection.”

A headliner in top nightclubs and casinos across the country and an accomplished corporate entertainer, James has also made multiple visits to entertain the troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. As a former Desert Storm veteran, Connolly has a one of a kind perspective about entertaining overseas. “People ask me if I was afraid for my safety. Not for a minute. Because I carry something with me the Marine Corps gave me long ago to protect me in just a dangerous environment: a laminated copy of my discharge papers!”

A bonding moment
Terrific. I recently had a block party in my neighborhood and I had the CD blaring. It was a nice change from typical music one hears at this sort of casual affair. It was fun to see my neighbors all laughing and how the laughter attracted more and more people to my end of the street! It was a bonding moment.


Pure funny
Pure Polyester is a very original comedy CD Biographical material is given a twist that makes it interesting and, most important, funny. His short series of funny jokes about being home-schooled, Mrs. Butterworth (don't ask, just listen to that short funny joke), and the use of tomatoes (mature subject here) are what make this comedy CD a solid winner.

I bought this CD... I don't buy comedy CDs.
I first heard cuts off this CD on XM Radio Channel 150. The CD was recorded in Las Vegas and in front of a casino audience. He is brilliantly funny, a former Marine, and a damn Harvard grad. All of the cuts are great - In one, he refers to an audience member as "D'Artagnon" because his name wasn't masculine enough to pick up chicks. Ha ha ha!

You are a God Damn Genius! Your writing, performance is brilliant.
I have been listening to your CD and it simply confirms what I already know - You are a God Damn Genius! Your writing, performance is brilliant. I am a HUGE Steve Martin fan, and the writing and delivery, pace, etc. really rings of him and I love it. Nowadays too many comedians are no substance AND no style - you bring BOTH to the table! You hearken back to the days of cutting edge comedy when comedians styles were fused together with their material - which is why you had such individualized comics such as Bobcat Goldthwait, Steve Martin, Robin Williams, Sam Kinison - all unique in both performance and material. Well, add a name to that list - JAMES P. CONNOLLY!

funny stuff
Pure Polyester is a very original comedy CD even if Connolly covers your basic funny jokes and funny stories. Biographical material is given a twist that makes it interesting and, most important, funny. His short series of funny jokes about being home-schooled, Mrs. Butterworth (don’t ask, just listen to that short funny joke), and the use of tomatoes (mature subject here) are what make this comedy CD a solid winner.

A must-have comedy CD!
I have listened to so many unmemorable comedy CDs. James P. Connolly's "Pure Polyester" is inscribed in my mind! With tons of funny lines you can quote to your friends, this album is pure gold.

James P. Connolly is more than some guy who throwing out an hour of jokes. He is a comedic personality you won't soon forget!

Polly Beckett

Hilarious, Surprising and Amazing Material
This CD is amazing because I can't imagine anyone not thinking it's funny. It has a really wide appeal without being anything you've ever heard. It was totally fun! Can't wait until the next one!

Alec Beckett

You best put on your Depends...
... because you will be peeing yourself. A friend was playing this at work and the whole office just came to a standstill. Friggin' hysterical, strange and somehow still funny after you've heard it a dozen times. Why is Margaret Cho a famous comedian and this guy isn't?
