Some interesting characters

"Like volume I of this Just for Laughs series, there are no profound social or political insights to be found here. But the comics chosen from the Montreal Comedy Festival's annual stand-up revue provide some good laughs, and above all, they provide a range of memorable comic characters.
Most of the individuals featured here have fashioned interesting on-stage personae for themselves. Without having gone so far as to become branded products on the market, they have nonetheless honed their performances into individual Dickensian idiosyncrasy.
There's Mitch Fatel who plays the simple soul. He can say outrageous things that would give offense if they were spoken by a sophisticate.
There's Mitch Hedberg who endears himself as the mellow wise man, speculating on life's misnomers. (I sleep in a twin bed. I constantly ask myself, "Where is my brother?")
There's Mr. Black known for living in a perpetual state of road rage.
There's Dane Cook who is the Bruce Springsteen of stand-up comedy. He eats up the stage with working class muscularity as he acts out his dilemmas.
There's Sean Cullen who puts his Irish tenor persona to good use as he illustrates how different popular singers such as Neil Young and Bob Dylan might have sounded if they had recorded theme songs for the James Bond movies.
You get the cream of the crop of stand-up comedy from this Series, without having to get dressed up, go out, and spend a lot of money in various Comedy Clubs. The laughs are brought to you. When you've had a hard day at work, I think this tape will
humorously bring home the fact that others have their perplexities too - that we all have PROBLEMS. And you'll feel better, for a little while anyway.

"Dave Attell. Mitch Hedberg. Lewis Black. Mitch Fatel. Dane Cook. Do you really need a review for this one? I recommend this dvd for the lineup alone. Of course, the footage is from the Montreal Comedy Festival so dont' expect an abundance of blue material. But there's nothing but funny here. Though Dane Cook is the "rock star" of the group, comedian Greg Giraldo really steals the show on this one. His material is funny and socially relevant..."
