If George Strait did stand up

"If George Strait started doing stand up it would be something like Rodney Carrington(Obviouly George would have to go 'blue' with the language. lol). With the jeans, shirt and cowboy hat, he is not far from being a country singer - and he can sing as well as be funny. I'm new to the world of Rodney so I cannot really compare this DVD to anything he's done in the past but now I am a new fan.
The songs are the most entertaining part of his show and, if you don't listen to the lyrics too closely, you'd swear you was watching a George Strait acoustic show. By that I mean the guy can actually carry a tune - the comedy is not in his bad singing but in the lyrics. The way he sings with funny facial expressions is hillarious and his piano player sideman getting into the act as well by going off on tangents singing until Rodney stops him. I am not easily offended at all so if you are, this guy is not for you. Funny is funny, if you can't handle profanity or sexual references then you should probably stick to something like Bill Cosby. Otherwise, this DVD is well worth buying and it makes you wonder how far Rodney would get if he actually turned into a serious singer(which in the bonus materials on the DVD, he says he has no intention of doing).
The bonus feature is entertaining too. You get to see Rodney meet the fans, hang out backstage and hear a few new songs not on the stand-up show including a 'serious' song he wrote about a friend of his who passed away. Be sure and listen to that one.
A very funny and entertaining DVD unless your a fuddy duddy who can't handle language."
Excellent, but Be Prepared for Rodney "Lite"

"We were at the venue for the filming of this DVD, and I've got to say, he put on one heck of a show. The best thing about Rodney is that he's always fresh. He very rarely uses his old bit, so each time you see him, you're in for surprises, and this one was no exception.
But it seems that he has taken a bit more of a conservative path since his show on ABC. If you've heard his old albums (Laugh You [...] and Morning Wood), you will probably agree that this is a bit on the "light" side.
Just about anything that comes out of Rodney's mouth is hilarious, but I personally came to love the guy for his complete lack of respect for anyone or anything. While "Live at the Majestic" and "King of the Mountains" (they are both from the same show) are both well-produced and extremely entertaining, they lack the level of insult that made him famous."
Perfect for when you just need to laugh!

"I bought this video having never seen Rodney Carrington's stand-up routine before, and I can honestly say I've never laughed this hard at one comic in my life.
To me, his songs make the DVD. He has a clever way of making you believe the song is going to be serious and then suddenly, one hilarious line changes the tune, i.e., Show Them to Me.
If you buy this DVD, be sure to watch the special features which offers a behind-the-scenes look at Rodney and his creative process. He does finally get serious with one song at the very end of the special features section. It will really make you think about the ones you love.
All-in-all, a DVD you can watch over and over again when you just need to laugh."
