Several years ago, about 1989-90, a friend of mine lent me a cassette featuring a stand-up comedian [more inside]

I have no clue who the comedian is anymore, and my google-fu has let me down once more. He sounds like a southerner, along the lines of the Blue Collar comedy guys, but I'm definitely sure it's not one of them.
I remember some of his act fairly clearly, just not in order:
- He has a bit where he uses a talking calculator (which he says he took from Ray Charles, but don't worry, he gave him a Rubik's cube.) In the bit, he asks it questions, like "What do you say after hit a golf ball?" and then he presses "4." "What do you tell kids not to do?" "2 POINT", "How many times do you have to tell 'em" "5 TIMES" and so forth. He later does a duet with it, "singing" Tea for Two.
- There's another bit where he and a friend argues over how to pronounce the city name "Louisville." He thinks its LouiSville, his friend thinks it LouiEville. He then asks someone at the restaurant, "Slowly, how do you pronounce the name of this place?" "B-u-r-g-e-r-K-i-n-g."
- Somewhere he talks about the Revolutionary War, and says the French wore red so you wouldn't see blood on their pants. He says he would've worn brown pants in that case.
That's all I can remember right now. Any clue who that comedian was?
