The new DVD from Russell Kane's live tour.
Russell Kane Live Smokescreens & Castles
Winner of the 2010 Edinburgh Comedy Award

Don’t miss this opportunity to see star of Comedy Rocks and co-host of ITV2’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here NOW! in his debut Live Stand-Up DVD. The 2010 Edinburgh Comedy Award winning show Smokescreens & Castles explores self, family and the consequences of Russell’s dad buying his own council house. Sociological silliness and high energy contortions guaranteed on this brand new live stand-up DVD.

★★★★★ A seriously good comedian. The Times

★★★★★ A thought-provoking filial tour de force. Dominic Cavendish, Daily Telegraph

“Russell Kane's new show is the finest of his career. Extremely funny, poignant and fuelled by real intelligence and passion.” Tim Arthur, Time Out Live

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.

Having read this mixed reviews on this DVD I thought I'd add my own as I've watched it a few times now.
I am a Russell Kane fan but not seen him live or indeed much of his work before this DVD but I wasn't dissapointed.
I watch alot of comedy much of it live and am quite harsh with most comedians as I dislike those that follow a tried and tested format and wanted to see something a bit different and he does't dissapoint.
Yes he uses bad language (but they are only words;they can't actually harm us!) and he does move around an awful lot but the tale he weaves in this DVD is wonderful and at times very moving, for anyone that enjoys comedy (not the tried and tested boring old one liners) then give it a try, he is refreshing, brutally honest and a very sweet guy. I for one will definitely go see his next tour and will watch this DVD again and recommend it to others.

It was funny but not what I had expected at all. He defiantly someone to watch out for but this wasn't his best work. 5/10

Im a big fan of stand up,but I could never make my mind up about Russell Kane,sometimes he would have me crying with laughter,other times he wouldnt make me smile.Which is why Ive only just decided to buy this DVD,been watching his latest series on BBC 3,and been laughing quite a lot at it,so I thought it was time I checked out what he is like live.

It kicked off really well,hes really sharp and knows how to interact with his audience,but soon it became clear that the whole show was based on storys about his relationship with his father.A brave move to open up your life in such a way,but I soon found all a bit repetative,I dont mean this in an insulting way,but when everything your talking about is based on the same source,its all going to have a familiar feel and sound to it.With 20 minutes to go I was starting to do other things,and only half listening to what was being said,the show had lost my interest.

I can only give the show 3 stars,but I dont regret buying it,because I now know that Russell Kane has the potential to be a great stand up act.As I said hes sharp and can communicate well with his audience,he also has a keen observational eye,and hes not afraid to take a risk or two.I just feel he needs more variation in his act,becasue he can ad lib and is very fast,as his tv show has proved.Hes in a different class to the smug and overrated McIntyre for instance,whos appeal continues to elude me.This could be the DVD we look back on in years to come,as the launch pad for a truly great comedian.

Well, took my wife and son to see Russell at Lichfield, he even had the cheek to pick on my son and also take the mickey out of the better arf. We never enjoyed a show so much and so I invested in this dvd of his previous show. He's so quick witted, intelligent and can sing through humor and hit the top note of his jokes with a nuke. So, if you haven't seen his show and only snippets of his material on the many tv shows he's appeared on recently, not to mention family fortunes... (he didn't arf look nervous on that one, poor chap), then go and treat yourself, and your family, as we all cried laughing... keep up the great work Russell...all the best.
