Brian Regan is so funny!!! He is almost completely clean-about 6 or 7 uses of h* and about 3(all at once) of g*. Some of his jokes in here are:
Pluto and the solar system ("You're not a planet anymore-near as we can figure, you're just a big nothin'!" "Can I still go around the sun?" "Feel free.")
"Realistic" cooking shows-why don't they ever run out out of eggs?!?!
Loitering-not worthy to be a crime.("So what're you in for?" "Loitering! I live on the edge like you, man! They said move along and I'm like, I don't think so!")
Anyway, this is a great DVD, just like all his other ones. Try him, you'll love him!
Not his best but better than the rest!!!

"Just finished this DVD and we all enjoyed it very much. I still rank his first "I walked on the moon" as the best...and probably his second "standing up" slightly over this as it does have a 30 minute special as a bonus feature as well as encores. The Epitome Of Hyperbole is not a bad third place but at a scant 42 minutes seems to end waaaay too early. The bonus encore is also very brief (about 4 minutes) and the making of is fun but not really something you want to watch again and again. So...most of my complaining is that I want more of this guy....he's just that good, original and works clean (which I don't demand but he is different by that mere fact).
Brian's expressions and physical humor is almost as funny as his stories and bits..which I don't want to give away...but lets just say that if you own the other two DVDs ....there isn't overlap of bits...so ...bottom line..you really need ALL THREE! his first one is available on his site...is an hour of gut busting stories from the classic "Say 8" to the title track.
I've seen him in concert and we just got tickets to see him in October...he is worth it live or on DVD...and his reputation and drawing power is completely due to word of mouth and talent....NOT the hype of NON funny "celebs" like Dane Cook....
Funny (as expected) -- but far too short!

"I agree with the earlier comment that this is the weaker of Brian's three DVD releases. But all things are relative - and this is still a very enjoyable, though brief, performance. If I had greater expectations, it was because I just saw Brian perform live a week ago -- and he has a lot of hilarious new material that did not appear in this DVD (all the more reason to catch his live show if you can!).
Brian's warm, average-joe delivery style is what makes him so likeable. His observations on everyday life are keen and hilarious. Brian's topics on this DVD include: realistic cooking shows ("Tune in tomorrow when after 45 minutes of preparation, I realized I don't have any eggs", Pluto getting kicked out of the group of planets ("You're no longer a planet. The best we can figure is, you're just a big nothing"), walking up to strangers at parties ("I don't know what you're talking about. May I still stand here?"), the crimes of manslaughter versus loitering, game show contestants, etc.
At 40 minutes in length - with just 4 minutes of encore - this DVD is much too short. I'm waiting to see the other half of his show that was edited out on this DVD. But, it's still a fun 40 minutes."

"After watching Regan's last Comedy Central special, I was hesitant to watch this performance. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the surplus of intelligent observations. Coupled with his hilarious expressions and upbeat personality, this special was highly entertaining.
And he pronounced every word correctly. Mostly."
