Movie Reviews

People who don't like this DVD are dumb.

"What is great about The Comedians of Comedy is that it is not your typical comedian DVD. We have become so lazy as a society that even sitting on our sofa and watching TV can't be enjoyed unless our shows are explained in detail and wrapped up in a simple little package. The Comedians of Comedy is an example of what comedy is. Its more than some guy standing in front of a mic explaining the difference between white people and black people. Its timing, its irony, its looking at life and saying WTF?

But beyond that, this DVD shows a different side to comedy that we don't normally see and that is the comedians point of view. Patton Oswalt created this tour which is a bunch of comedy shows in "Indie rock" establishments to promote the idea that a comedian's career can be followed like a bands career. That is what this DVD is showing. So for those who need things spelled out for them (like R. Shultz) The Comedians of Comedy is SO FAR from frat humor its comedic that one would say this DVD contains the sense of humor of a frat guy. If anything, all the comedians on this DVD hate frat guys! They are simply doing what they love and really couldn't care less what other people think about their humor. Ok Im done with my preaching."

"This is an amazing DVD. I read reviews online all the time saying "anyone will like this", but seriously. I even showed it to my mother who laughed. That's a big deal.
This DVD follows these four comedians on their two week tour. Their nightly shows are spliced together with scenes of them in their bus on their way to that particular city.
Also throughout the episodes, it shows the comedians in interviews discussing comedy in America during her "time of need", interpersonal relationships, and anything else they could think of.
This DVD makes me laugh to tears every time. Literally."
The thing about physical comedy is...

"Before I watched this film I was not sure who Patton Oswalt was. I watch a lot alternative comedy like Mr. Show, David Cross, and I love comedians like Bill Hicks and George Carlin. Patton, Brian, Zach and many others are carrying the torch. This video is without a doubt the very best comedy DVD I have ever seen. I liked this video so much I wouldn't let Netfilx have it back. When I saw the video it could not be purchased anywhere, so I "lost" it. I play this video in the background at parties in my, and it is fun to see how many people take time out to listen to comedians like these guys with no context. I always hear the inevitable, "who is this?" These comedians are the best on the planet it's great more people can see this DVD now.

I liked it beary much."
Hee hee hee... Skippy? Really???

"I'm so glad I read the review by R. Schultz. It was such a pick-me-up. I giggled 'til I almost peed. I'm really not sure how to process the opinion of anyone who is lamenting the pop culture passing of Skippy from "Family Ties". I'm sorry that Marc Price has disappointed you, Mr. Schultz. I, too, miss the hi-larious way he used to fawn all over Mallory... Oh, Skippy, will you ever win?

As far as Patton Oswalt goes, I think he's done a great thing with this tour. He showcases comedians that are smart, edgy and not-so-mainstream. Brian Posehn and Maria Bamford are very funny. And Zach Galifinakis is plain nuts. Reminds me of Andy Kaufman when he wasn't on "Taxi". As for comparing Patton Oswalt's stand-up to his appearancees on "King of Queens", I've always maintained that he was slumming when he was on that show to pay the bills and be able to do things like we see on this DVD. He played the lovable, misunderstood, third-fiddle doughboy on TV, and did a fairly decent job of it. But it doesn't come even close to the razor-sharp wit he displays in his stand-up act.

I've only been to one frat party, and once was enough. But anyone who thinks of Zach Galifinakis as a sloppy frat boy would yearn for the yesteryear clean-cut humor of that wacky Skippy. Mr. Schultz, there's this show called "Saved by the Bell" you might want to check out..."
