Lee Mack is the sort of comedian who is difficult to dislike, he comes across as a very warm guy and his humour is on the whole not of the offensive variety. He is generally considered a fairly low-brow comedian compared to the more satirical acts out there but it's clear that he's an clever guy and one or two of his gags got little response from the audience as they struck a more intelligent chord and felt different from the rest of his material. He's a natural on stage and not scared to make himself the subject of his own jokes, early on he engages in banter with the audience and some of the best laughs in the DVD come from his off-the-hoof comments and sharp responses.
This is a show of new material but I have heard some of it from his TV appearances so the full impact of those jokes were slightly lost with me, and I felt that some jokes had a large build up which didn't seem to pay off at the end. There is enough strong material on here though to ensure that you do have a good laugh, but it is a bit patchy and doesn't constantly make you laugh throughout. This would have been better off as an excellent 45 minute show rather than the hour and ten minutes which feels a bit padded.
The additional features include the warm-up act (a short stint by Simon Evans) and featurette on the tour itself.
In a nutshell: This certainly isn't a bad stand-up comedy DVD, it contains enough laughs to make it a valuable title for a comedy DVD collection - but the quality varies between jokes and the routine suffers from some weaker material - thankfully though when it's good it's really good and those moments make it worthwhile.
appear to have pretty much filled it for this DVD
recording of his 'Going Out Live' show. The audience
laughs. The audience laughs a very great deal in fact.
Perhaps I'm getting old. Perhaps I just didn't get it but I
really didn't laugh at all. I couldn't even raise a smirk!
Like the repellent Frankie Boyle, Mr Mack seems to think that
subjects such as sexual abuse, women's bodies, incest, porn
and Tourette's Syndrome are all fair game for a laugh.
Reframing the unthinkable in the name of entertainment.
(Yes, I know, I know ... taboo has always been one of
the cornerstones of many great comedians' raison d'etre
but Mr Mack isn't doing anything new here and what he
does do he really doesn't do well at all!)
His liberal use of swear words is nothing short of puerile.
Don't get me wrong here; I love a well-placed "****" in a
sharp stand-up routine as much as any man or beast but twenty
"****s" in a row is definite evidence for the old adage that
quantity and quality are most certainly not the same thing!
The cheeky-chappy persona wears thin very quickly to
reveal a performer of very strained and limited ability.
There are a few minutes of physical humour about halfway
through (what to do with the hand not holding the mike and
two mildly amusing skits about unruly trouser turnups and
Botox-induced fixed facial expressions) which pointed to
a far more substantially gifted inner-clown than we are
able to discern in the rest of this dissapointing show.
At Your Own Risk.
Really enjoyed the extras for a change - good backstage mini-doc, where you get a good feel for the real man offstage, as well as highlights from support act Simon Evans's act.
If you've never seen Lee Mack before then I would describe him as quite a down to earth comedian who has a sense of humour that is quite British, not too challenging (that's not a criticism in my opinion!) and sometimes crude (which is only a criticism depending on your personal taste). If you don't like swearing then Lee Mack is also not the comedian for you.
Having only seen a few short snippets of other performances, I was surprised that I had seen a few of his gags before. Having said that, it's not surprising to see the same material more than once if you like a comedian, it was only a few jokes and I still laughed! I actually laughed quite a lot at the DVD and personally I found his ad-libbed bits when he was talking to the audience or answering questions the best and funniest bits.
The footage of the gig itself lasts about 70 minutes. The DVD also has a couple of extras that I wasn't expecting which was quite enjoyable. These are a behind the scenes of the tour, which does give you an insight into Lee as well as a little more material and lasts about 25 minutes. The other is the warm up act, Simon Evans. This only lasts about 4 minutes but he seemed quite an amusing guy and it was a worthy addition to the DVD.
All in all, I enjoyed watching the DVD and the extras. The jokes were funny and it's a DVD I could watch again from time to time and still enjoy. If you're a fan of Lee Mack or just want something to have a giggle at then I would recommend this to you. 4 stars.
