5 Stars for "Uncensored." 3 1/2 Stars for "Performances"

"The fact that these are uncensored are great! But the fact is, some of these performances are old, i.e. Daniel Tosh, Dave Attell. Firstly, if you feel like you've heard their material in other places, you have. That's the only downside of these "CCPs."
The few that shine to me is Stephen Lynch #2 (his most recent CCP, mainly on his Craig Machine tour, I guess), Nick Swardson (always makes me laugh, especially when he talks about his 6 year old pic behind him), and Patton Oswalt (just an odd ball of weirdness, but funny!).
Like I said, the fact that all of these are uncensored add to the fun, but the only drawback is that the material is somewhat dated. But I think the most recent out of all of these performances is Stephen Lynch's."
It's raw... and we love it!

"WARNING :: If you're easily offended by off-color jokes, spend too much time riding the P.C.-pony, or can't appreciate the occasional hilarious bout of toilet humor, stay away from this DVD. If you're a sophisticated, intelligent, and fun-loving person who likes a good laugh- perhaps at the expense of (insert name of any minority or innocent group of oppressed people here)- however, you'll love the Best of Comedy Central Presents II.
Without fail one of the best television stations of all time, Comedy Central has changed the way we look at the world around us, all through the lens of humor. The network is a veritable hotbed of hilarity, bringing some of the best programming out there to our living rooms every day. With a lineup that includes South Park, The Daily Show with John Stewart (one of the hottest men on TV I might add), Reno 911!, and Sarah Silverman, it's surprising that I ever watch anything else on television (in fact I don't), let alone leave the house.
And yet for all their amazing scripted programming, sometimes it's the simplest little shows that bring the most pleasure. Of course, I'm talking about stand-up.
Comedy Central is known for their star stand-up comics, and the Best of Comedy Central Presents II brings that home with aplomb. The nearly 3-hour disc features Dave Attell, Mike Birbiglia, Frank Caliendo (love him on Mad TV!), Zach Galifianakis, Patton Oswalt, Brian Posehn, Stephen Lynch, and Nick Swardson taking on topics as diverse as grandmothers, teddy bears, concert etiquette, time-travel, and of course the battle of the sexes (and races, genders, sexual orientations, and various people with "special needs"...). At times it's raunchy, raw, rude, and all around wrong.
And that's exactly why we love it.
This is comedy as it's meant to be seen- uncensored, unedited, un-`bleeped,' and, well, unless you're a prude, you'll love it.
The only extras on this DVD are a trio of Quickies; essentially clips from The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, and Reno: 911!, as well as a set of trailers. Funny clips to be sure, but nothing really "special." That being said, this isn't a feature film, so what do you expect? Bloopers? Not so much.
Final answer :: Buy it. It's hilarious."
