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

2.0 out of 5 stars Not that funny. 2 Feb 2012
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Chris Addison 21 Jan 2012
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great show, where were you? 19 Mar 2012
By joshm
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny but not great 28 Jan 2012
By tam
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Some of the diction - especially at the start of the performance when Chris appeared nervous - is poor which is not what you want when the spoken word is the key factor in your enjoyment.
This improved as the video went on, but I'm glad I waited until the price had dropped before making my purchase - I enjoyed the DVD, but guess I was hoping for better.
