I'm going to start this review by saying that this was the comedy dvd I was most looking forward to this year, so I'm probably biased. I'm delighted to say tht it didn't disappoint at all.
The show itself is fantastic. Having seen it live, I knew it would be a great spectacle on dvd, but seeing it in front of a hometown audience was a treat. Watching a comedian perform, holding the audience in the palm of his hand and having them clinging onto every word he says, is a brilliant sight. Russell performs with such high energy that it keeps you enthralled all the way through.
The dvd also comes with a couple of extras. There's an interview with Russell's mom, which is both interesting and informative, and the clip of his first ever televised performance (with optional commentary by Russell), which is very funny. It was also quite nice on a personal note, because it made me realise that I saw that show on its first broadcast, and have followed Russell ever since.
Overall, it's a brilliant dvd, showing off one of the best (and hardest working) stand up's in the country. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
