Reviews

In the hit series from the star of Peep Show, QI and That Mitchell And Webb Look, comedy genius David Mitchell vents his spleen on modern life in this award winning series of hilarious rants.

No subject is off limits. David's targets include the elderly, lying politicians and Anne Robinson. And if necrophilia, the Welsh, the oddly familiar Camelopard and mysterious King Cnut are your thing, look no further. This is British comedy at its most irreverent and brilliantly observed.

Have you ever worried that you're not passionate enough about sofas? How to pronounce the word "valet"? Or what to do with a half-dead mouse? Are you confused about public mastication, inflatable hover-forts or the proper etiquette when signing someone's boobs? Well fear not, David is on your side and has the answers.

Special Features:
  • Three brand new episodes: Certainty, Publishing and Wedding Lists
  • "Inside The Crate": The History of David Mitchell's Soapbox
  • Audio commentaries with David Mitchell and producers

I first need to say that all of these little "rants" are available online for free. I bought the DVD to have them all together because I found them very funny online and it was priced just under 10quid. Some are funnier than others and its definitely not a DVD to watch all the way through as they can get a little monotonous. They are great for a little one-a-day laugh though. This is a 2-disk set.

As a fan of Peep Show, I've always been interested in David Michell's work. This DVD is a collection of his podcasts, which are still available free of charge on websites such as YouTube, but I wanted to have the whole collection of shows on DVD.
He targets a diverse range of targets, with his trademark acerbic wit, and uncanny knack for skewering some of the banalities of human existence. He looks at the pros and cons of giving flowers to a lover, the behaviour of the urban fox, the strengths and weaknesses of the Welsh, the serendipity of grandparents, the relative merits of bitter and lager, why Come Dine With Me is an abomination, the incorrect use of grammar, the obsession Americans have with money, man flu, and so on and so forth.
Sadly, this collection is a bit hit and miss. Personally, I think that Mr Mitchell's sardonic brand of humour works much better, if he has a foil for his barbed remarks, like he does with Robert Webb in Peep Show. However, working by himself, he's just a bit too relentlessly downbeat and melancholy for it to work - Jack Dee does this sort of thing much better - Jack Dee: Live Stand-Up Collection 2012 [DVD] Jack Dee: So What? Live [Blu-ray] .
This body of work, whilst mildly amusing, is a wee bit too knowing, and self-consciously clever, to raise any belly laughs. I think that your money would be much better spent on a box set of Peep Show. Here's the link - Peep Show - Series 1-7 - Complete [DVD] .
Thank you for taking the time to read this review.

There are extras on here, and in one of them David is interviewed and comments that he doesn't know why anyone would buy this as the content is freely available online. But I like having them all in one place on a handy disc. The menu is a bit annoying as the soundtrack is a multilayered garble of all of the soapboxes playing at once, so you'll need to mute it unless you want to be driven mad. But if you love David's rants, you'll love this.

Almost all of this is already available for free on YouTube, the Guardian website & ChannelFlip [or ChannelFLIP if you're DM]. And Series 3 of the Soapbox is not included here which makes the picture of a bearded DM on the cover rather misleading.
