Movie Reviews

His Pain is our Gain
Humor Head "Jim" | Trenton, N.J. | 07/08/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I cannot wait for this DVD! I can't curb my enthusiasm--I'm dying! These specials were killer. I saw them while I was in college and they killed me. I remember watching one or two in the student union with hundreds of screaming "students from hell." This is really some of the "vintage" stuff that put Richard Lewis on the map as one of the greatest and it's about time we can see the origins of his insanity. I know he has plenty of other stuff so hopefully this is just the beginning of loads of comedy DVD's from the Prince of Pain.

Mr. Lewis, I understand you're in recovery and good going for you, but don't get too well! And keep fighting with Larry David on "Curb"--that show rocks! And you two are like Ali and Frazier!"

"If this 2 DVD set doesn't demonstrate once and for all that Richard Lewis is the spiritual descendent of Lenny Bruce then nothing will. I will be sleepless until the release date and then have a viewing party with my rabbi and a minyon of Jewish men from various countries around the world."
Thumbs Up!

"I got this DVD today at the Conan O'Brien late night show, where he was featured, it was the first time that I even heard his name, as I wasn't into comedy, but after listening to him a few minutes I became an instant fan of his, so far I watched the first disk of a set of two, and I was laughing and laughing my way through it..... I must recommend this, buy it and you won't stop laughing........."
Richard Lewis: Still funny as hell :)

"My husband and I were newly married and in our twenties when Richard Lewis became wildly popular in the 1980's. He was our favorite comedian and actor. We enjoyed his stand-up act and his appearances on talk shows. We were avid fans of his show with Jamie Lee Curtis, "Anything But Love."
My husband recently had a birthday and I went through the usual angst about what to give him as a worthy gift. I came across Richard Lewis's DVD, "Concerts from Hell-The Vintage Years" and knew this would please my husband very much. We have enjoyed every moment of the DVD collection of Richard Lewis' stand-up. It makes us laugh out loud, it brings to light all over again the brilliant, intelligent humor of Richard Lewis, and it reminds us of the great fun we had watching Richard Lewis in our early marriage.
The DVD is packed with great features. The commentaries by Robin Williams, Rob Reiner, Billy Crystal and other comedy legends, all when they were young and fresh, is marvelous to see. The recent interviews with Richard Lewis in which he describes his earlier comedy experiences and who he worked with are wonderful. Thank you, Richard Lewis, for so many years of laughs and entertainment. My husband and I feel you are a friend."
