Jonathan = auto 5. Always.

His 'comeback' show at CB's in the late 70s is the punkest thing ever, from what I've read. He played to a crowd that wanted to hear "Roadrunner" and "She Cracked," but instead gave them "Hey There Little Insect" and "Abominable Snowman in the Market." The louder the crowd booed, the quieter Richman played, and he shushed the crowd between verses.
