This package contains both the Blu-ray and DVD of 'Hello Ladies', Stephen Merchant's hilarious debut stand up release. The gig is brilliant, and I wish he'd do another one but there's no word on another one as of now. I haven't watched the DVD (I bought it for the blu-ray and I watched that so what's the point?!) but the Blu-ray is good.

The picture is pretty good (1080i Widescreen 16:9) , but it isn't as noticeable because it's just Steve on stage so it doesn't need to be crisp. Either way, it satisfies. Audio was fine because it's just one audio track but it's 2.0 if anyone's interested.

Bonus features were disappointing. There was an entertaining enough interview with Christian O'Connell where Steve talks about why he returned to stand up etc, and includes some very funny archive footage from the late 90s (SD) from an old routine. Hoped for more but it's ok I suppose. Subtitles are also available.

Overall a good package and a very funny show.

This is a DVD of Stephen Merchant's first live show. Some of his comedy routine seems to be pitched at an American audience, but only a very small element. He has a likeable persona on stage, and a very nice line in self-deprecating wit, much of it aimed at his gangly frame (he's 6 feet, 7 inches tall), and being a geek at school. He jokes about ergonomic issues when you're tall, including problems on flights.
He places an amusing focus on his bungling attempts at romance. He also gives a very funny diatribe about adverse press reports, where journalists have mocked him because of his beanpole appearance. He reveals his method for handling boring and obnoxious wedding guests, and dissects the banality of textspeak, which is fairly funny.
I couldn't give this show 5 stars, because it didn't give me any strong belly laughs. If I'm watching Lee Evans or Al Murray, I sometimes find it hard to stop laughing, but I didn't experience that with this show. It's well constructed, observational humour, and frequently mildly amusing, but not quite on a par with the aforementioned comedians. Both Lee Evans and Al Murray are blessed with the Tommy Cooper effect - their physical appearance alone, and their use of exaggerated facial expressions, is enough in itself to cause hilarity, regardless of their material. Comics like Stephen Merchant and Greg Davies don't have the same advantage, which perhaps helps to explain the absence of real belly laughs.
ADDENDUM:- If you like this show, you'll probably enjoy the Greg Davies DVD, The Back Of My Mum's Head, which I review elsewhere on this website - Greg Davies Live: The Back of My Mum's Head [DVD] .

Stephen Merchant; the 'other one' out of Ricky Gervais and the other one. A lot of people don't even care for Gervais' stand up, but given how wildly successful it's been commercially perhaps Merchant - easily one of the world's tallest stand-ups - was bound to give it a go.

In DVD extras Merchant typically pleads ignorance of his own comic talent, saying he's largely unaware of what his face is doing, and so he doesn't indulge much of the antics that his Darren Lamb character did in Extras, for example. Instead he's playing an exaggerated public persona of himself, much like Gervais does, reacting with near-vitriol to his early reviews and, generally, his status as the lesser known one of the duo that wrote The Office.

Merchant is a humorous man, but in an oversatured stand-up market he suffers from being simply not that funny in comparison. He is almost certainly funnier than most people you know, but alas that limits him to being the kind of guy you'd enjoy getting a pint with rather than one you'd pay to see. Most of the material isn't exactly groundbreaking - there's a segment about dogs not being man's best friend. Amusing, yes...

There are moments of greatness here, and they bookend the show. Early on, he rails against the press response to The Office - or rather, his role in it, in which he is sometimes cut out of photographs or identified with the wrong name.

But the largest jewel in this very limited crown is the encore, a word by word reproduction of an 'issues'-laden play Merchant wrote at school called Choices. Roping in some audience members to play some of the parts, he doesn't even need to add anything to it for the comedy to flow freely.

Merchant has nothing left to prove after how great his TV and film work is as actor and writer, and there may be a great stand-up set in him somewhere; this just isn't it.

Hello Ladies represents Stephen Merchants first crack at a solo stand up tour since the 90's and he's put together a pretty good effort - 70+ minutes of consistent chuckles.

The framing device for the show is Merchants ongoing struggles to find a partner. It's largely self deprecating humour mixed with ironic observations of many of the usual subjects - dating, marriage, sex - as well as insights into dealing with being a man of such height.

If you're familiar with, and enjoy, his various TV work then there's much to like here - a few belly laughs along the way as well as the previously mentioned chuckles. A bit of fun audience participation and a long, strange but funny encore add up to a worthwhile watch (especially as it's on Amazon Prime at time of writing).
