This stand-up comedy DVD is worth a watch for a few laughs on an evening. Lee Mack starts off perhaps a bit awkwardly but soon get into his stride and delivers joke after joke in his usual 'cheeky chap' style.
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.
