Too many bad comedians
(3 out of 5 stars)
"this is a five disc set that could easily be condensed into three very funny discs. each disc at some point leaves you wandering 'is the next guy going to be funny, man i sure hope so'. this set gives you a chance to see some of todays best comedians when they were much younger. some peoples bits are very short, one joke short, which leaves you feeling a little jipped. The replay value is minimal because you have to skip around so much to keep the laughs going."
This is where they all began....

"The best thing about this set is the way you can look back at the handful of truly gifted comedians to grace our (mostly) 90's stages. A few drop-back into the 80's are in this as well. Hilarious moments that you will be glad you revisited. Some skits are a bit short. Giving you only a taste of greatness. And, leaving you wanting for more. Not a perfect box-set. But, it delivers what it promises. A boat-load of talented comedians giving you what has become their trademark bits of humor while they were still being honed. Many hours of true comedic history. Well worth it for the price."
Take my comedian... please!
