Jerry Sadowitz live in concert performing his magic tricks and making us laugh with his hatred of everything, as he lambasts the Queen and living. A popular face on the comedy circuit Sadowitz regularly tours.
When the whole world wakes up one Monday morning and finally realizes that political correctness is the new fascism Mr. Sadowitz will be at the front of the mob howling for its blood.
This video is (to my knowledge) the only purchasable offering of Jerry live on stage and although some of the material may now seem dated it is a true showcase for a unique comic talent.
This is savage comedy interspersed with a little magic, a merciless attack on all races, creeds and social backgrounds and totally without remorse. See if you can spot the scene where the camera man hastily whips the camera away after Jerry takes out his P**is, slips a clowns red nose on the end and, after vigorous jerking, declares "How's about that for comic relief"
I can see why no one wants to risk allowing him on live TV but any one watching this would surely pay to see the man live.
If I had my way he would be presenting "Stars on Sunday" every week.
I'm lucky enough to own this on DVD , I purchased it from a gig after one of his Edinburgh shows. I have been a fan of Jerry for years, I have seen him live many times, I feel catching his live show is much better than watching it on the small screen, but this is a worth while buy if you can track it down. A mixture of filthy jokes and off the wall, often childish magic tricks make this a one of a kind comedy purchase. Any man brave enough to attempt water juggling live gets a thumbs up in my eyes. The audience shots show how time has passed since the filming, but the slickness and the sickness of the gags still top today's so called shock jocks. His onstage energy gives an insight into the focus he puts into his shows. Sadly if your reading this your probably know who Jerry is already so don't need convincing. He still gigs, he still has the power to shock, and is still one of a kind. I hope a DVD of his newer work is released one day, until then ill continue to watch this legend live, and crack out this show every now and then

This is one of my favourite videos, comedian-wise. I saw him live several times in the 1980's/90's, and he was in a league of his own - swearing non-stop, but with obviously heart-felt anger and disbelief in the stupidity of life and its trappings, whether it be London Transport or readers letters in Scottish newspapers, making one laugh out loud, and then interspersed with excellent and made-to-look-too-easy magic and prestidigitation, of which he is one of the greats. No matter how angry he got, he rarely alienated his audience..
But seeing him live recently, I fear he is now going into the darker realms of sex and violence in his act, and the laughs are less frequent, which is made creepier by the fact he is getting older - and I worry that he is being eaten from within by acid which is not being relieved by comedy any more..
I prefer to remember him as he was, and this video is a classic, which I still watch every now and then... Buy this now...
