With Marcus Brigstocke you expect intelligent Left Wing-ism from the point of view of a middle class, angry, yet articulate Londoner. And that's exactly what you get.
This stand-up show contains fantastic observations on modern Britain. His polite manner overspills into Left Wing attacks on Conservatism, racism, and his extension blocking neighbour Dave. He brings a much needed dose of reality into a media saturated with right wing press. His rants represent the anti-Amercanism, anti-war, pro-thinking beliefs held by most of those whom Marcus Brigstocke appeals to.
The main weakness of the DVD is that it isn't always that funny. But with comedians like Brigstocke - the politics are just as important as the laughs. You feel that sometimes an observation is tagged onto a joke which maybe drags on too long. For many, this will be a boring DVD with just a few laughs - but for those who like their comedy a bit more cerebral, then this is something to enjoy. The text epilogue at the end states that this is the most honest, direct, and exposing way to communicate your views - and I'm grateful that Marcus Brigstocke had the balls to do it.
There is a lot of old material on this, I'm sure I've seen most of it before. But as this is his first stand up DVD I shall forgive it - it feels too mean to give this three stars - it's worthy of more than that. But fingers crossed that the there will be another DVD in the future - with fresher material.
