Fatel is obsessed with sex. Be it porn, breasts or ‘you girls with your crazy vaginas!’, his conversation never for a moment rises above the belt.
Sex and all its mores is the mainstay of many a comic, of course. But this mild-mannered American employs honesty and modesty, rather than the braggadocio of most laddish stand-ups, to give himself an edge.
On top of that, his morose, monotone, deadpan delivery gives things a creepily sordidy air, exacerbated by his uncomfortable come-ons to a selected audience member.
Yet while the act is solidly reliable, getting laughs of recognition and shock in equal measure, it never really soars, never really stands out as something special. It doesn’t help that we’ve heard some – but by no means all - of this before. ‘Men can’t find the clitoris’ jokes are surely past their sell-by date unless it can be done with more style than Fatel musters by calling it the Osama Bin Laden of the female body.
But there’s an impish smile to mitigate against the sleaze, and enough accurate observations and upfront confessions to satisfy many people’s basic instinct: the desire to laugh.

Hilarious stuff. Very original and memorable. A natural.
I never knew that a white guy could be so funny. He is universally racial off the chart. His droning voice is part of the act that makes it all the more funny with impact. He has a unique funny persona
I have never laughed so hard in my life. Mitch is so funny, I feel like the description doesn't really serve the true talent he has to make people laugh. My husband loves to see me laugh and when I tried to retell the jokes to him, I had the hardest time catching my breath. Mitch you're awesome
He's the most awesome person I have ever heard and love everything about him
I am an all night truck driver for a major trucking company and Mitch is by far the funniest man in America - he almost makes me wreck my truck for laughing so much! Thanks Mitch and XM Radio
I think Mitch Fatel is the best stand up comedian in the business right now, the first time I heard his Miniskirts and Muffins CD i lent it to all my friends so that they could listen to it and they all share my opinion that Mitch is the best
I love his comedy. I hear him on XM all the time. He makes my drive home in rush hour so much easier to live with.
