Product Description

Has Adolf Hitler ruined that little moustache for everyone? The only time you'll see it these days is carved into the pubic hair of a naughty lady. Is it possible to reclaim the toothbrush moustache (as it should be called) for comedy? After all, Chaplin had it first. In the critically acclaimed "Hitler Moustache," comedian Richard Herring (star of BBC2's Fist of Fun and the Collings and Herrin podcast) determines to find as well as discovering how people will respond to this contentious face furniture when it's growing out of his face. Will they assume he's crazy or a fascist or both? Will they spit at him, punch him or just laugh in his face? It's a show that examines iconography, the way we judge and are judged, the dangers of political apathy, the point where comedy and madness touch and the very ethics of such a comedy stunt. Is it worth Herring upsetting strangers, risking physical and psychological damage and ruining his parent's Golden Wedding photos for the sake of a stand up show? And can Herring use the moustache, as Chaplin did before him, to satirise fascism and expose the culpability of apathetic liberals in the success of the BNP?

I went to see Stewart Lee and Richard Herring in Derby in the late 90's. This was on the back of their television programme This Morning With Richard Not Judy. The only real memory I have of the gig was that Richard had somehow acquired free tickets for a film called The Castle at the local cinema, for anyone in the crowd that wanted one. The show was hilarious and I thought they'd both go on to pack out stadiums. I forget about them for about 10 years. Following Stewart's TV programme, I was pleased to discover a back catalogue of his material existed on DVD (which are all excellent). Richard seemingly hadn't had anything committed to DVD, however with a bit of searching I found he had in fact done plenty independently released, all of which I purchased. Hitler Moustache is his first mainstream release.

There aren't enough superlatives that I can throw at this, and his previous releases, Someone Likes Yoghurt, Menage A Un, The Headmaster's Son and Oh **** I'm 40. Richard's lack of commercial releases and therefore mainstream success is perhaps epitomised by Hitler Moustache. The subject matter is obviously going to court contraversy and although it is quite clear what all of the points are he is conveying, I still wouldn't take it to my local Ethnicity and Diversity Board and say, Hey everyone, take this home and watch it, it's hilarious! Just for fear that someone wouldn't get it. Stewart Lee hit the nail on the head in his book, saying Richard has mad impulses to say the worst possible thing in any situation, and from somehow lacking the self-censorship facility that prevents most of us from acting on them.

As in his other DVD's, some of the 'Cut Out/Second Version' ad libbing stuff is equally as funny as the main material and well worth watching. I look forward to Richard's tour of his new material next year. I'll definately be in attendance. I might even heckle for the first time ever, just to see the consequences... erm, you idiot, Herring.

I went to see this show at the Edinburgh Stand back in March '10 and it was probably his finest work at the time. Filled with lots of hilarious anecdotes of what happens when wearing such a nose doormat. I brought two of my friends along for company who had never heard of him, and they left saying it was the best show they had ever seen, [aside] it probably wasn't. nyum nyum nyum *****

I was at one of the recordings of this at Chapter, and - as I understand one half from each of the two tapings is being used - I can say that at least half of this DVD is going to be dynamite. I wasn't at the second taping and thus can't comment on it (I'm not made of money).

...he was playing Hitler in a play; he noted, as Richard does, that there is surprisingly little reaction to a modern-day individual sporting a Hitler moustache on the street - most people try their best to ignore what they probably consider to be a rather unstable individual, and move on by quickly.

It's a show of two halves - first because they filmed two separate performances and used a half from each show [inaccurate actually - see comments], and secondly because the styles are very contrasted between the two halves. I enjoyed the overtly anti-fascist political material in the second half much more than the more light, observational style of the first. It made me laugh out loud a few times, which makes it worth having watched as far as I'm concerned.

The best stuff isn't about the moustache - it's about the BNP. Richard uses wonderful logic to deconstruct their beliefs and raise a laugh at the same time, which takes some doing really.

One thing I've noticed about Richard is that he loves to say shocking things to see what reaction he gets - if you're familiar with his ways, this is rather endearing in a terrible way, because there's always a naughty expression on his face that shows he doesn't mean it. If you're not familiar with his ways and are also of a particularly easily-offended nature, then I wouldn't recommend this video to you. That applies if you're a member of BNP, too, come to think of it.

The copious extras contain a telling bit of footage - Richard going through the calendar of his beloved iPhone, recounting every memory he can dredge up from every performance of his tour up to then - 122 dates or something, which sounds exhausting.

Another brilliant performance by one of the most under-rated British comedians. Thought provoking but perhaps more importantly hilarious as always.

Good gig, very funny, wish I'd caught it live. after a bit of a quiet, stumbling start not helped by the self-conscious response of the small audience in the claustrophobic venue it rapidly builds into an entertaining hour and a half with some very, very funny moments. Some of the material is staggeringly tasteless but Herrings sheer cheek supported by the basic premise of the show manage to carry it off.

Scored it down for the DVD extras which are pants and do not justify the second disc.
