Store clerks: be careful when giving change to Fraser Young.
Fraser Young is a solid writer and a likeable performer. I don't always believe his persona - the slacker dude who points out some of society's stupidities - but there's no denying his appeal.
From criticizing a store clerk's change-counting abilities to doing a cost-benefit analysis of losing limbs for insurance claims purposes, his material is relatable and inoffensive.
Deconstructing questionable acts and phrases is his specialty, whether it's a guy who claims he speaks "over five languages," or giving us a cautionary tale about the dreaded "as is" label at used clothing stores.
A few jokes are lightweight. One set in Jordan goes nowhere, and one about apartment-hunting shouldn't have made the cut.
But a joke set in Peru travels to some unexpected places, and his analysis of how the oral sex euphemism "[she could] suck a golf ball through a garden hose" could come in handy is cute and endearing, as is the album closer, a critique of a ridiculous guide to kissing.
Fun, but hardly revolutionary.
