"When I heard time life was releasing these videos, I was so happy. However, when I got them, I realized that they were edited. They are completely different from the original HBO series. All of the hip hop once played, has been replaced with elevator music. There is no way anyone can critique these videos without viewing the original series. I think it was dumb on HBO's part to sell the rights to time life. I guess it is all about what sells' rather than authenticity. Do not but it if you were a true fan because you will be disappointed!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
The greatest stand up TV Show!

"I decided to check this out because I had heard good things about it,and D.L. Hughley is one of my favorite comedians.(This is the exact same reason why I checked out the Original Kings Of Comedy.)I was satisfied.This DVD contains 3 episodes of HBO's groundbreaking comedy series,"Def Comedy Jam".They each contain 4 comedians.They are all hosted by Martin Lawrence.This is one of the reasons why I didn't give this 5 stars.The first two shows on here are very funny,and the third one is OK.Two comedians on the third show aren't funny.One of them was Laura Hayes,from the Queens of Comedy.The other one was one of Russell Simmons' favorites.His name was Gi George.My favorites on here are D.L. Hughley,Ricky Harris,and the very first comedian on here.His name was AJ Jamal.There is A LOT of cussin' and swearin'.Every comedian also tells at least one sex joke.So if you have young children,DO NOT let them come CLOSE to the ENTIRE SERIES.Otherwise,sit back and enjoy the greatest stand up TV show ever recorded.I'm signing off for now.In the mean time check out the rest of the series,I guarantee you will like it."

"I rented this movie from Blockbuster and thought it would be good. The first show has Martin Lawrence as host and the comedians that are good on this are Pierre and D.L. Hughley. The others are okay. The second one has funny comedians J.Anthony Brown and Adele Givens. Adele really rocked it. She had everyone jumping on their seats, on the floor laughing. J. Anthony Brown was alright. If I were you,I would rent I first and if you like it, then buy it."
