Reviews

The multi-award winning Al Murray – The Pub Landlord brings a brand new live show to DVD, direct from his sell-out 2009 national tour performed in front of more than 250,000 people.
'The way he integrates the crowd into the show is awe-inspiring' The Times
Recorded at The Guv’s biggest lock-in to date at London’s O2 Arena, the nation's favourite pub landlord will once again raise a glass at home with you - the beautiful British public - whilst he merrily muses over a heady brew of topics including: the global financial crisis, London 2012, and his one man crusade to fix Broken Britain. As one of the UK’s premier stand-up comedians, and a prime-time star of ITV1, Al Murray – The Pub Landlord is ‘one national treasure to cherish’ Daily Telegraph.
'Actually deserves the tag genius' The Sun
'His interaction with the front few rows is legendary… thoroughly recommended. Five stars.' The Sun (27/11/09)

5.0 out of 5 stars Al Murray at his best! 9 Aug 2009
Saw Al Murray live on the Friday night at the O2 and it was brilliant! It was filmed over the Friday and Saturday night and I haven't laughed as much in my life!

Having seen him do Al Murray's happy hour on ITV live was great but no where near as good as this. For over 2 hours, he thoughly entertained me. If you love Al Murray - you'll love this. A variety brew of topics including: the credit crunch, London 2012, and his one man crusade to fix Broken Britain, you'll end up with one big smile on your face!

If this is half as good as it was live - It'll be well worth owning it and I would recommend buying it!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Too long and slow-paced 1 Jan 2010
Verified Purchase
Murray seems to be a bit overwhelmed by the size of the crowd and goes into automatic pilot poking fun at the front row for far too long. Compared to his usual approach, it was like a drunk labouring the same old jokes until you stopped laughing and began cringing. The close ups of the victims showed that for several of them and their companions that things had gone beyond a gag. Once he got into his scripted act things were better, but the material was spread a little too thin. This is not to say that the DVD doesn't have some great moments, but you've got to wait pateiently for them to arrive. Whether it's the case that stand-up doesn't really work in such vast arenas, I know not? What I do know is that the show has to be faster paced than this to really hit the spot.

2.0 out of 5 stars Going through the motions 25 Jan 2010
Parody is a hard thing to sustain but Al Murray has managed it admirably over the years. When I first saw him in '98 I was one of the unfortunates in the front row of Jongleurs Battersea, hauled onto the stage to be ritually humiliated.
The Pub Landlord was fresh, clever comedy - the bigoted, xenophobic publican had us laughing happily at ourselves and well crafted digs at non-Brits of all kinds were designed as much to ridicule the British and our long held prejudices as they were to poke fun at Johnny Foreigner.

At that time Murray was only 30 years old, much younger than his titular character and consequently it was much more apparent that he was role-playing, both in appearance and in subject matter.
In the decade that has passed since then Murray has, like the rest of us, grown older; the paunch has grown, the jowls have dropped and now the burgundy blazered comic is much closer in appearance to the middle aged publican that he plays.
The only thing that hasnt matured is the comedy.

The thing is that Murray has become (as it says on the DVD case) a "national treasure", a massively popular TV star with an appeal that now reaches into the millions. With this, Murray has become a wealthy man and with this latest offering its hard to ignore the fact that he continues to chase that popularity by playing to the lowest common denominator.

With crisp firing bazookas that belong on a Freddie Starr Blackpool run and accented digs at Indian call centres that are cheered by a flag waving crowd the once clever parody has become what it originally sought to mock. The trap has been laid bare for years and in chasing the cash Murray has fallen square into it.
As a nation we've loved our ridiculous bigots; Basil Fawlty, Alf Garnet and yes the Pub Landlord.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 10 Jan 2010
Bought this DVD as previously loved Al Murrays comedy. Found this one very disappointing and I got bored with, Found he dragged bits out unneccessary, so sad to say this was not his best.

3.0 out of 5 stars Longwinded & boring 14 Dec 2009
As someone who has bought and enjoyed in the main Al Murray's previous offerings I have to say this left me disappointed,Al Murray now has a tendancy to labour the point much more so than previously in fact it's downright boring in places, so much so that I nearly gave up and turned off on more than one occasion....Only for the real diehard pub landlord fans..................
