Seems a little steep for DL but remember he was an original “King of Comedy” so hopefully he still has some good material.
Here is some classic stuff. WARNING- We rate this PG13 because much of what he says seems to be pretty common language. Some might give it an R. But it is hilarious when he starts cracking on the audience.

The creator of such hits as “I Keep Forgettin,” the Grammy-winning “Yah Mo B There,” and the Number One pop single “On my Own,” McDonald isn’t afraid to challenge expectations. McDonald has been a fixture of American pop music for over three decades. After emerging out of the local scene in his hometown of St. Louis, he first came into the spotlight as part of Steely Dan’s touring band in the early 1970s. He contributed vocals and key boards to the band’s classic albums Katy Lied, The Royal Scam, Aja, and Gaucho. While working with Steely Dan, McDonald also joined the Doobie Brothers, where his voice became the group’s focal point on such songs as “Takin’ It to the Streets,” “Minute by Minute,” and, unforgettably, the Number One Single “What a Fool Believes,” which won the 1980 Grammy as song of the year.
