Irish comic/presenter captured live at the Theatre Royal in London. Dara O'Briain is the Irish comic seemingly omnipresent on the panel show circuit including 'Never Mind The Buzzocks' and the chaotic improv rodeo 'Whose Line is it Anyway'. The acerbic wit and massive intelligence he's known for there are on full display in his stand up show.

The extras are well worth it and there is more of an hour of extra footage which just leaves you wanting even more. There are so many best bits you can't single out one bit. We cried with laughter all the way through - we had to pause the DVD at some points in order to catch our breath otherwise we would have missed the next story.
Unfortunately because Dara O'Briain is quite recent this is the only DVD he currently has on offer - can't wait for his next tour or the next DVD - there's no point waiting for a special occasion - as soon as one comes out I will go and buy it.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - if I could give it more than five stars I would.
One critic, writing in The Guardian, and quoted on the DVD cover, describes the show as "A master-class in intelligent stand-up". That is no exaggeration.
We watched it for the first time as a group of 4 friends, without any particular expectations, and we quickly went from smiling to chuckling to uncontrollable laughter. The group effect obviously helped, but I have watched it since on my own and I was soon laughing out loud again. This guy is really good - very, very funny indeed.
It is clear form his TV appearances that Dara O'Briain has a very sharp wit - he is quick on his feet, inventing new material as we listen. This performance shows him doing precisely that - and so well.
There is a lot of interaction with the audience. (Note - very important for the more retiring of us to avoid the front few rows if going to one of his shows !). This interaction is clearly totally genuine. We are watching a virtuoso comic at work. By bouncing conversation and quips back and forth with members of the audience (and never unkindly) he creates exceptional original comedy while also seamlessly including large, well rehearsed segments from his normal repertoire.
Watch out for his "driving lesson experiences" as applicable to his sex life, and watch out for the piece on "tattoos and body-piercing". Even thinking of that as I write this makes me smile broadly.
A wonderful performance. Highly recommended.
The big Irishman is very much at ease with the crowd and has the admirable knack of creating laugher without abusing or putting them down.
His material ranges far and wide with the format being short anecdotes rather than one-liners. The general theme is around rules in all areas of life. He's not afraid to tackle a bit of religion and fess up to being labelled a homophobe after having a gag mis-interpreted.
I enjoyed this from start to finish and have watched it several times since. Even though I know the gags now, it's still funny. Surely that's a good test for a comedy dvd?

The DVD arrived on time and worked perfectly. The cover/case was a bit grotty but it was to be expected, as I had ordered a used version for a couple of pence. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Greg Chapman

I wasn't inspired really with Dara's DVD, felt it was the same old stuff being rolled out. Disappointed really, sorry.Published on 27 Nov. 2013 by E. Duffy
