Reviews

You’ll already know Greg Davies as the psychotic Head of Sixth Form, Mr Gilbert in The Inbetweeners (Ch4) and as the most out-of-shape member of We are Klang (BBC3).

His hotly anticipated debut stand-up show was a critically lauded sell-out smash hit at the 2010 Edinburgh festival, picking up a prestigious nomination for the Fosters Comedy Award (formerly the Perrier). Following a sell-out autumn tour and a spring 2011 extension added due to popular demand, now’s your chance to see this incredible stand-up show, live on DVD. It promises to address every single issue important to the human race. But it lies - it won’t address any. Buy it though, it’ll be funny.

Greg’s many television appearances also include the most recent series of Live at The Apollo and Have I Got News for You, as a regular on Ask Rhod Gilbert (BBC1) - as well as appearances on Mock the Week, 8 Out of 10 Cats and Never Mind the Buzzcocks.

Once again its that time of year where all the panel-show-comedians get their latest tour into the shops the make their christmas bonus - good luck to them, stand-up (and panel shows) have never been as popular - but it does mean that the market has become very saturated.

We get the same old format (cant really fault them but it can get tiring), the same old performers (lee evans still going strong), the mock the week crew all with their offerings (not another russell howard dvd, hes got a box set now dont you know), some very good newcomers like micky flanagan and stephen merchant and the usual rehashing of old shows and repackaging (russell brands "new" new york live show dvd complete with years old material), but greg davies' stands out by a country mile.

Not only is it good to see someone new getting their dvd on, but it is also a huge bonus when someone youve liked on their various appearances and shows comes out with a fresh, hilarious and original show. I havent laughed this hard during a stand-up for years, it caught me off guard and it kept me hooked every second of the way through.

What greg has done here isnt vastly unique (gone is the one man and his microphone routine), with a flip chart and little book of short stories being the props used but it just helps things along a bit - and considering plenty of the material is about greg during his teaching days the flipchart doesnt feel out of place. Everyone seems to be trying to use a little gimmick to make their show a bit more visually entertaining (stephen merchants encore is an ingenious example) but this is used subtly and acts as a small visual aid to what is central to the show - storytelling.

I've always like Greg Davies on panel shows. This live tour was brilliant, very very fresh and was a welcome change from the familiar worn out comedy we regulary get nowadays about Husbands, Wives, Race, Kids etc. Thoroughly recommended this and will make a great christmas gift.

Hope you do more tours Greg !!

5 stars.

A very funny stand-up routine from a master comedian. The best I've seen for a long while, it's hard to describe what lifted it (for me) above any one of hundreds of others but I think the material really shines out. Greg is a real story teller who in this performance develops a feeling of meaning. On TV recently, routines consisting of nothing but quick fire puns and surrealism seem to be more popular but this performance shows how someone can deliver a clever, heartwarming tale whilst still making you laugh. Either it's all true as he says or his visible emotion at times is just bloody good acting but I was sucked in and after laughing the whole way through when it was finished I was also left with a lingering "good feeling" - not what you'd usually expect from a title like this. Highly recommended.

Format: DVD
I've watched most of the new stand-up DVDs of this year so far and I wasn't sure what to expect from Greg Davies' offering. He's always a lot of fun on panel shows and of course he was great in The Inbetweeners, but I wasn't sure how that would translate to stand-up.

The routine takes the form of a series of relatively short stories about his life during various periods, and each is funnier than the last. As you'd expect he makes fun of himself a lot, and his family, and there's a fair share of shouting and swearing but every second is brilliant.

There's not much more you can say without giving away some of the jokes, but if you've ever liked Greg in anything you've seen him in so far, go for this DVD as it's probably the best that I've seen so far this year, and that includes Peter Kay and Jason Manford.

One of the best stand-up DVDs for a very long time, original, honest, heart-warming and extremely funny. Can't recommend it enough. Fantastic

This DVD was a small bastion of pleasure in the sea of mediocrity known as stand up.

I saw this DVD around a friends house just after Xmas and I laughed so much, I really wasn't expecting much but what I received was nothing short of hilarious, so I ended up buying it myself.

Lots of people who are, seemingly, experts on the genre of stand up will probably point out all the subtle techniques which Greg uses in his show and testify that his style is... blah blah blah, personally I just watched and enjoyed, and I suggest that if you're not a connoisseur (i.e. pretentious pr*%k) of comedy then you too shall enjoy this wonderful show.

It was personal, funny and, at times, tragic. A roller-coaster of emotion (but mainly joy).

I couldn't recommend this enough,

Being a fan of Gregs from ask Rhod Gilbert and his epic term as Mr Gilbert on the Inbetweeners, I picked this up and expected to laugh, however I didn't expect anything this funny. Beautifully shot incredibly funny an something I'll watch time and time again.

Firing Cheeseballs at a dog is a fantastically hilarious Dvd! I bought it after seeing Greg Davies perform at The Royal Variety show last year. There is not one bit if this DVD that doesn't make me laugh! Greg Davies is a definite one to watch!
