Movie Reviews

Good material, not enough of it...
J. A. Buhrer | 07/29/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD features great comedians and some very funny moments, but it really suffers from too many performers and not enough time for each. Each comic comes on stage, tells 2 or 3 jokes and then introduces the next comic. It's an interesting concept, and I applaud Patton and the guys for trying something new and different, but unfortunately it doesn't translate to DVD very well, IMO. The DVD plays like 2 hours of emceeing with no main act. I would rather have a 2 or 3 or 4 disc set that has more of each performance or (even better) just pick the best 4 or 5 comedians and give them each a 20 or 30 minute set. Also, I know that it says there are 15 comedians on the back, but I kinda think that having 4 popular comedians on the cover is a little misleading. It gives the impression that you actually get to see more than a couple of minutes of them performing! The new comics were great, I'm glad they're on the DVD, but I'd like to see more of them too! Interesting concept, funny stuff, I just hope they come up with a better presentation next time."
Fantastic Find

"The talent and material presented in this epic-long performance is just outstanding. People who don't like this are morons and their opinions are wrong. Take it from me, I know truth - even when talking about opinions. Your welcome."
Not enough funny
David Scott | Easthampton, MA | 01/03/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Very uneven and ultimately unsatisfying. Several of the comedians featured here were astonishingly unfunny. Several were very very good but we only see a couple minutes of them and then they're gone. Some on the other hand were very funny, and yet they overstay their welcome and become tiresome. A few here are brilliant. But watching this DVD is a frustrating experience. By the end, I wished I had simply bought separate DVDs of some of the better performers like Patton, Maria Bamford, or Andy Kindler. Except that I can't find separate DVDs. Why is that? Why does someone like Maria Bamford not have her own DVD?!

Three stars on the strength of the better performers presented here, although we don't see enough of them."
Another Great Comedians of Comedy release
James J. Berk Jr | 01/24/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I loved the tv show and the previous dvd they released, and this was not a let down. Very funny, has a good portion of my fav comedians who are kinda "alternative" comics. Even if you like a few of these comics buy this, cause you will end up liking them all, a few of the lesser known comics (to me atleast) were as funny if not funnier than any of the main comedians."
