Product Description

"This man is one of the true comic greats" The Guardian

For the first time ever, Johnny Vegas' full length stand up show storms onto DVD. The larger than life comedian and star of Benidorm, Ideal and 'those ads' bursts onto DVD in a triumphant return to the sun, sand, sea and sangria of Benidorm.
Filmed live at the Benidorm Palace, in front of a truly up for it, sell-out crowd. Johnny cuts loose with his own inimitable style of stand-up, sing-along, and of course live pottery. Follow Johnny from his neglected upbringing at the hands of his scratchcard addict mother, right up to his bizarre experiences of Benidrom's infamous nightlife. Johnny's trademark and much loved potters wheel makes an appearance, and watch as Johnny gives an unforgettable pottery lessons to one lucky member of the audience. Johnny's unique live shows are the stuff of legend, so sit back and finally see for yourself what all the hilarious fuss is about.

2.0 out of 5 stars A sad effort 14 Aug 2010
Format:DVD
I think Johnny Vegas is hilarious, his improvised rants are inspired and hysterical, but this dvd struggles to get many laughs. He does his drunken loser act, but fails to make it funny. It's about as entertaining as listening to the average pub drunk, and the audience participation falls flat as his targets don't seem to want to get into the spirit of it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Poor 17 Feb 2010
Format:DVD
This performance is equivalent to watching a drunken uncle at a family wedding futilely attempting to disco dance. It's just plain embarassing from start to finish. Some say he is cutting edge and inventive. I say, he's just not funny.

1.0 out of 5 stars He's just not that funny 21 Nov 2010
By yaleey
Format:DVD
I agree with the other reviewers. I watched this DVD as a big fan of Johnny Vegas, but sadly this show fails to impress. The main problem is that his jokes and anecdotes just aren't that funny. I think his humor appeals to a certain type of audience, but even then it seems that at times, even this audience is uncomfortable. Johnny plays his drunk and obnoxious loud mouthed entertainer act. It makes for some cringe worthy viewing which barely raises a few smiles. There are so many better comedians out there. This is an hour you will wish you hadn't wasted, trust me!

2.0 out of 5 stars Too much fun in the sun 20 Nov 2009
By mooowl
Format:DVD
Like most people I enjoy the period prior to Christmas when all the worlds top stand up comedians release new material fit for the hours following a tremendous Christmas meal, this however is not the case with Johnny Vegas - Live at the Benidorm Palace. The 'larger than life' comedian roled on stage with a drunken stagger, his routine askew with ramblings of his life with his mother and father, and the occasional trip to the audience to embarrass the young women enjoying their time in Spain. For moments their was a shining light in which I thought Vegas may have been acting the fool with his witty comebacks, only to be transported back to the world of strange stories and obscure references. To those thinking "I like that bloke of the telly he's funny in that show set in Spain" remember that writers were paid good money to make this man funny on ITV and don't bother waisting your hard earned money on this hour long embarrassment when the likes of Jimmy Carr, Russell Howard, and Jason Manford are only a click away.

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolute rubbish 27 Dec 2009
Format:DVD
I got this as a christmas present and was looking forward to watching it after watching the excellent Benidorm TV series staring Johnny Vegas. Johnny Vegas comes on stage in a drunken stupor, wanted to turn it off after 5 minutes. Don't bother wasting your money because it's "crap".."This Man is one of the true Comic Embarrassments"

1.0 out of 5 stars Oh Dear 6 Jan 2010
Format:DVD
I love Johnny V, Ideal is the wittiest, most original, most tears down the face series since Fawlty Towers, JV just makes this insane reality thats often near the edge seam so plausible and relatable, Genius.

However in this DVD regardless If hes playing an alter ego like the pub land or not this DVD is a TRAIN WRECK, if your a JV fan avoid like the plague.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very, very disappointing 29 Jan 2010
Format:DVD
Johnny Vegas is frustratingly inconsistent. When he's on form there is (in my opinion) nobody better. Why on earth, when you're one of the nation's best alternative stand-up comedians (again, in my opinion) would you want to try and do a performance reminiscent of the desperately unfunny Roy Chubby Brown? His interaction with the audience is cruel to the point of being unfunny and the material is crude for the sake of being crude (wouldn't have been so bad if he could have done something amusing with it). It could have been he tailored his material to suit the drunken yob culture of Brits abroad but I doubt it, it's more likely that Johnny's own personal demons (i.e. alcoholism)are getting the better of him and hindering his performance in what he does best. There are the occasional flashes of brilliance though and the DVD extra where he has a drunken comic rant at the person trying to get him to the theater is a lot more amusing than the main feature. It's got some negative reviews on here (unfairly I think), but I would personally recommend Who's Ready For Ice-Cream? if you want to see Johnny at his best.
