4.0 out of 5 stars Flawed but fabulous 9 April 2007
Format:DVD
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Russell Brand - he's smart, hilarious and weirdly endearing. However, i don't feel that this particular DVD does real justice to his talents.

Although there are some stand-out funny moments here that more than justify buying this DVD, some parts seemed forced and the act as a whole didn't really seem to flow that smoothly.

In my opinion, Russell is at his best when he's improvising and just going with the flow, or at least when performing an act which he hasn't done over and over again (the short act he performed at the Secret Policeman's Ball has to be one of the funniest pieces of stand-up I've ever seen).

When i went to see his show in Birmingham recently, there was thankfully only about 30 minutes worth of the material on this DVD included, instead he spent most of the night ad-libbing - engaging with the audience and reading articles from the local paper - to fabulous comedic effect.

Still, this DVD is very funny and it made me laugh A LOT. In my opinion it's definitely worth buying (unless very graphic sex references make you feel uncomfortable, that is).

However, I can't give it 5 stars - however much I would like to - because I know he can do so much better.

5.0 out of 5 stars He's a Genius 4 Jan 2008
Format:DVD
I think its unfair that people are commenting him so harshly. i thought on this dvd he was funny, charming and original. I hated him on 'big brothers big mouth' but ive grown to love him. i laughed so much when he was saying about riding past the window on the motorbike. i have friends that hated him but have fallen in love after showing them this dvd. hes obvious very intelligent and well read, and this seeps through in his witty humour. id also recommend his book. buy this... buy it now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny guy 14 Feb 2013

I like Russell, always have, and as always I would reccommend this. He's cheeky and prancy (if I can use that) and just honestly funny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! 6 Dec 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
He is so funny in these early shows. Not that he isn't now, but I think it was more shocking then. A must have for every Brand fan.

I've read so many bad reviews for this DVD and so many of them have said they turned it off after 20 minutes, well there's your problem right there! I think if you don't watch it to the very end then why bother reviewing it! The truth is its not the funniest live stand up of all time but its not the worst either. Being that its his first, a few things can be forgiven like the "loud isn't always funny" rule, the repetitive shouting and repetitive impersonations of the "manly men". It drove me crazy and wasn't all that funny but I can forgive because some parts of the stories/jokes were pure hilarious! Russell has a way about him that is in general just funny to watch. I find him to be a very funny man and I look forward to seeing more of his stand ups in the future.

Overall 5/10

5.0 out of 5 stars amazingly funny, highly original 12 May 2009
Format:DVD
Russell brand can easily divide a nation, maybe 60% of people do not know who he is but the rest certainly do. He really knows how to play to a crowd, highly original script and anecdotes. This dvd is definitely worth watching, look on marketplace here and chances are you can pick it up for under 4 including the delivery charge.

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant 2 Feb 2009
By Cille
Format:DVD
I absolutly loved it. He has great charm when telling his stories, a kind of harsh honesty, and this bright bubbly energy you can't help but be drawn in. All dramatic language, voices and gestures he is original, and fabuluos. I highly recommend it however as anyone who knows Russell should expect there is language and sex talk, if this offends you don't bother.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nothing is as degrading and unfunny as Russell Brand's debut DVD.
Why do people consider him as a great stand-up comic? He's not and this debut stand-up DVD pretty much proves it. Read more

When Russell Brand confidently prances onto the stage looking oddly magnificent, you are reminded of the multi-talented Eddie Izzard at his best, Dressed To Kill. Read more
