This dvd has been 12, 13 years in the making, so its not before time that ed byrne has finally got round to making what essentially amounts to a 'best of' dvd. This dvd basically showcases all the best of ed's award winning routines - his alanis morrisette routine for example?
The wonderful thing about ed is the fact that soooooooo many of his routines can be said off-by-heart coz theyr sooooooo memorable! I cant count the number of times that ive used the term "occasional smoker" in everyday conversation with mates, or the number of times ive done "the full-body-jerk-awake" lol!!!! The other nice thing is that ed on the dvd seems like a genuinely nice guy - which, btw, he is (As i can testify after having drank with him after his gig in Glasgow). He is lovely! Women want to jump on him and never let go, and men wanna have a drink with him!
This dvd also has some pretty cool extras - an interview with dara O' briain, and a commentary/ aka heckle-fest from eds mates Andrew Maxwell, Brendon Burns, Glenn Wool,and his brother Paul Byrne.
This dvd is a masterclass in well written stand up routines; and eds observations are soooooooooooooooo freakishly accurate too. I defy anyone to watch the sleep routine and not think ' yeh man, ive done that!'.
Anyways, buy this dvd. Its fabby, eds a cool guy, hes hot, and the material is genuinely funny! Long may he continue with the good work, and produce another dvd soon with even more fantastic material.
