He is always hilarious, but the best bits of his shows are the interaction with the audience; that's, in my opinion what makes his shows so brilliant. Many comedians are good on telling jokes, but they can be a bit boring, just an hour and a half talking by their own. With Dara O Briain, you can never get bored.
I hope he records many of his live shows because living in Spain I have no oportunity of going to see him live, and this man is a real treasure on stage.
Okay, normal objective review service resumed now...
Except it's very hard to be objective, because I loved every minute of this DVD. I watched it with my husband and he thoroughly enjoyed it too (needless to say I was careful not to mention Dara's lovely eyes).
I bought this along with Dara's 2006 DVD, and for anyone afraid they'll get more of the same, they won't. You can justify owning both DVDs. Because Dara gets something different from each new audience, and is able, with quick fire wit, to turn their lives into something hilarious and special. The encores are worth waiting for alone, as he deftly brings together all the elements of the show so far (and there's no way he could rehearse that part), and makes the audience feel a million dollars.
The extras are great too. There's a fantastic show at Vicar Street, with all the stuff that he says only works in Ireland, when actually his humour travels really well, and he does - which I thought was rather sweet - translate for the benefit of a couple of English audience members.
There's a very funny drinking game with Mock The Week's charming David Mitchell, which also gives an insight into how Dara works the audience.
And finally, a short but sweet extra that those of us watching the DVD wouldn't normally get to see, as it segues to the interval.
So DO buy this DVD if you like intelligent, quick fire humour from somenoe who makes the audience feel they're the most important part of the show. You won't be disappointed.
Probably the best part of this DVD is the fantastic extras. David Mitchell appears for a "drinking game" although they don't get drunk, Dara and David do open up a bit more and talk about the DVD. This is essentially a commentary, although rather than it being just a sound recording, they are being filmed. Rather than most commentarys which can be a little hard to watch as you are essentially watching the DVD again without hearing it very well this is just two guys talking about the show you just watched.
Other extras include an hour of his show in Dublin and a 2 minute clip of a joke he made at the interval, but because DVD's like to have you believe no interval takes place, this didn't make the DVD.
A must for fans of Mock The Week or Dara.
Slipping effortlessly between hilarious prepared material and even more hilarious banter with the unwitting members of the audience on the front row, this DVD is comedy gold from start to finish.
No in depth critique. No long winded review. Put it in your basket now and experience some of the best stand up available on DVD.
ps. Once you've dried your tears from watching the main show, go to the extras and watch an almost completely different show from the same tour! Recorded live in Ireland.
