Reviews

Following a sell-out UK spring tour and recently announced autumn tour extension Chris Addison, off BAFTA-winning comedy The Thick of It, In The Loop, Skins, Lab Rats, Mock The Week and his own BBC 5 live show 7 Day Sunday makes his critically acclaimed stand-up available in shiny, round format (DVD) for the first time.

Recorded live at London’s Bloomsbury Theatre, Chris Addison covers material from the personal to the, well, less personal in his own unique and hugely entertaining style. Daftness! Whimsy! Jokes! Lies! Smartarsery! Flapping about! All present and correct.

“The best stand-up I’ve seen.” The Observer

“He’s brilliant. No question.” The Times

“Downright hilarious. His stories reduced a packed crowd to tears of helpless laughter.” The Sunday Times

After some excellent performances on TV, I was looking forward to this. The show itself, was patchy, funny in parts. THe best bits were when Chris didn't swear, it seemd to me that he was using swear for cheap laughs. The swearing was intermittent, but loads in short spaces, too much ni my view. The extras were good although the question and answer session was spoilt by swearing, instead of good answers. Ignore reviews on the DVD, this is not the funniest comedian ever.

I was familiar with Chris Addison for his acting in comedy series like 'Skins' and 'The Thick of It', but I had never seen his stand-up. Recorded live at London's Bloomsbury Theatre, his act is that of a heavily scripted, conversational 'lecture' style, and it really works.

Although he appears to be considerably nervous on the stage, assumingly he's more at home in front of a camera, and he does swear a lot it would seem to get the occasional extra laugh, I thought his unique style of telling jokes was excellent, and this is a very funny show. Topics he brings up includes his views on students and universities, the pope (and I admit during this bit I cringed when he tells a cheap joke about Hillsborough, which I really don't think that was called for), fat people, his hatred for ugg boots and this very website and it's 'Amazon Recommends' feature.

I wouldn't say it was among the best stand-up I've seen, but it was still very enjoyable. I prefer him as a TV comedy actor, but he is a considerable comedian. 'Chris Addison Live' contains two special features: behind-the-scenes footage and a Question and Answers session with the audience.

isn't it an own goal when a comedian swears excessively only to be "that" funny? he's far better on telly.
random flop.

I was there on the night this was recorded in the Bloomsbury Theatre and was excited to see Chris Live initially, I knew him from his various tv appearances and had found him quite funny so went ready to laugh. The best I managed on the night was a slight titter here and there im sad to say, the rest of the time I felt quite uncomfortable actually. He seemed nervous on stage and struggled for words at times but worst of all his material was weak. Someone else mentioned about his swearing, and I totally agree, I have no issue with swearing but my problem was that he relied on this as a punchline to many of his jokes which to me was just plain lazy and not funny.

This may appeal to some but don't expect belly laughs, I only bought this cos I wanted to see myself in the crowd but I was pretty sure I wouldn't make the cut as they normally want to show people laughing. I think they might struggling in general for these shots.

He has potential, but I would skip this tour if I were you.

Not really sure the rest of you were at the same show. Saw him in Shrewsbury and was brilliant. Non-stop laughs and a crazy structure with some improvization meant it was a great night, would throughly recommend the dvd. Great show Chris!
