Monologist Richard "Lord" Buckley was equal parts beatnik versifier, wigged-out aristocrat, standup comic, and snake-oil salesman. There's a bit of Buckley in everything from the hipster comedy/philosophy of Lenny Bruce to the neo-beat musings of Tom Waits. HIS ROYAL HIPNESS captures Buckley in full flight in 1951. His modus popular modus operandi--the telling of well-known tales from history and literature in '40s/'50s jazzman vernacular--is demonstrated at it's finest here.
Buckley underlines the inherent coolness of Joseph and Mary's son in "The Nazz," delivers a thumbnail biography "in hip" of Ghandi in "The Hip Gan," and takes a bop era stab at "Marc Antony's Funeral Oration." One of Buckley's most effective comedic devices was the conflict between his down-and-dirty colloquializing and his mock-magisterial bearing. That dichotomy, along with all the other comedic elements at Buckley's disposal, is played to the hilt on HIS ROYAL HIPNESS.
