I left my smile at the counter

"I've seen this brother on Jamie Foxx now defunct show and on other features. Although it was a small part, I loved him in "Two Can Play That Game". So imagine my enthusiasm when I saw he had his own comedy routine on DVD at my local store. I rushed home to view it only to find I didn't as much as let out one yelp! No tee hee hee or slap of the knee. In two words "Not Funny". Alex Thomas stunk big time on this DVD. So run, skip and walk fast past this selection. As far as the Platinum Series goes get "Michael Colyar's Project". Now that is hilarious."
Didnt laugh once

"I've seen quite a few comedy specials over the years and this has got to rank up there with Jerry Seinfeld as one of the worse. The DVD cover compared this special to Eddie Murphy's Delirious and Chris Rock's Bigger and Blacker. You gotta be kidding me. This comes no where close. I think I chuckled once. I really wanted to like it, but it just wasn't funny.The mark of a great comedian is that s/he talks about what people can relate to. Alex Thomas talks about random things that few can relate to and at times even contradicts himself. He talks about how much he hates all the cussin' in today's raps, yet his comedy is filled with F and N words. Not that there's anything wrong with that...it just wasn't funny. Bottomline, don't waste your time or money with this one. Even the cameo by Tyra Banks couldn't save this DVD."
Not that bad upon further viewing...

"I think this DVD ranks with certain movies like Next Friday or Don't Be a Menace... in the fact that when you first watch it, it isn't that funny. But when you watch it the second time, you catch all the jokes and it becomes one of your favorites. The thing that is lacking in this venue is that AT picked the wrong place to film this special. It was filmed in a wide open auditorium type atmosphere and you can't hear the laughs from the audience. You realize when you watch shows like "Everybody Loves Raymond" how much a "laugh track" adds to the show. If you watch a show and hear no one laugh you tend to not laugh too, because you figure it must not be funny if no one is laughing. But the show WAS funny. When they pan the audience you see major players like Robert Townsend and Damon Wayans and THEY are laughing. People had tears in there eyes in the audience, but you couldn't hear them on the DVD and it took a lot away from the performance. The sh#ts funny.. give it a chance... I'm from Missouri, so there's no California (where he's from) bias. ABM"
