"If you pan a comedy DVD because you "never heard of Paul Rodriguez, Norm Macdonald, or Richard Belzer", well...maybe the problem isn't the product. If you know comedy, you'll know these names. If you think the comedy spectrum runs from Carrot Top to Jeff Foxworthy, well...enjoy that vanilla ice cream.
That said, you're getting what you pay for here - a machine gun riff through early material (the photos on the cover are a tipoff) by people who for the most part do better work elsewhere. Consider it a museum piece; a Time-Life collection of clips assembled for convenience. For completists; the curious might want to wait for a cheap used copy."
Weak and Dated

"This a pretty old recording of some currently famous comedians. With the exception of Norm MacDonald, Ray Romano, Tim Allen, and one of the two Adam Sandler clips, most of these excerpts are not that funny. It is hard to imagine how this is the "very best" of the material available from these comedians."

"Now this was fun! True, this is older stuff from the late 80's and early 90's but a lot of the material still makes me laugh. It interesting to see them when they were early in their career. The funnest were Carrot Top, Jim Carrey, Drew Carey and Tim Allen. Weakest was Norm Macdonald, 1st performance by Adam Sandler, Richard Lewis and Richard Belzer. Good thing Belzer plays a cop on Law and Order because he sucks as a comic.
Old and not very good material

"This is obviously the work of someone who bought the rights to this material. The Seinfeld clip is exactly 30 to 50 seconds long and his name is featured prominently on the box. The DVD is poorly made and the material is short and old. I wouldn't mind it being old if it wasn't so short. ("The portions are so small.") The only reason to buy it is because it's cheap - and it isn't here, so don't."
