Father Guido Sarducci: Breakfast in Heaven

This is Father Guido Sarducci's second album, and I think it's one of my favorite "undiscovered" comedy albums. I've talked to people who remember Father Guido's first album ("Live at St. Douglas Convent") with its bits about the Fifteen Minute University and literally "paying for your sins" when you die, but few people know about this album, and it's a shame because it really is a good one. This is a performance that took place at the University of Notre Dame in 1986, and here's some of the topics covered:

The pros and cons of singing about beer on buses
The History, Folklore, and Myth of the country of Doo Dah
The missing commandments
And even a medley of Beatles' tunes!

But my favorite bit on this album by far is the one about the candles on birthday cakes. This alone is worth the price of admission (which for you is free, but you know what I mean).

Anyway, download this one. I think you'll like it.

Thank you! I never knew he had a second album. But I do remember "Live at St. Douglas Convent" it's been a long time since I heard it. I have the record but no record player. Do you have that one? They'd probably both fit on one CD.

Thanks for the comments, kabluie!
I remember hearing "Live at St. Douglas Convent" many years ago, but unfortunately I don't have it. I'd love to find it though. If you come across it, let me know. If I find another site with it, I'd be happy to link to it.
