5.0 out of 5 stars Blu Ray Review 14 Aug 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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.

By William Mason TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A rewarding effort 26 Aug 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
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).

1.0 out of 5 stars Awkward and unfunny 29 Oct 2014
Format:DVD
I bought this on a whim as I'm a fan of 'The Office' and I was curious about what his stand up style would be like. He managed to get a mild chuckle out of me in the first 5 minutes but there were very few to follow. His jokes are very banal, unimaginative, his analogies are far too contrived and badly worked out analogies, and his delivery is rarely good enough to compensate for the fact that you'd figured about the punchline at the outset of the joke. He spends quite a long time quizzing an audience member about how he met his wife without managing to derive a great deal of humour. On the whole he should be congratulated for finding a way of being even LESS funny at stand-up than his counterpart Gervais.

4.0 out of 5 stars judge it as a standalone piece 28 Nov 2011
Format:DVD
If you watch this DVD burdened with the huge weight of expectation that Mr. Merchants previous comic forays would encumber you with then you may feel a slight sense of let down.Not much, but a bit.
If, however, you cut the guy some slack and view it as a standalaone show then you will laugh and you will enjoy it. Sure a couple of bits have been lifted from old XFM shows (but not to the frankly criminal levels displayed in his erstwhile writing sidekicks last standup show) otherwise it's all fresh material delivered in a very personable and easy manner.
I look forward to a second tour from Mr. Merchant almost as much as I look forward to a fabled first live show from a certain round-headed buffoon.Let's see the real talent shine!

5.0 out of 5 stars Single, really? 26 Jan 2014
By Adele
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I would have loved to have gone to the show, but I have only just in the last year been recommended the "Trio's" (Stephen, Ricky and Karl) work.
The interview with Mr Merchant is endearing and a true insight to what it is to be a stand up comedian. Fascinating.
The show itself is full of cringe-worthy stories and excellent physical comedy.
Relatable comedy and I am really looking forward to the HBO series when it is released on dvd in the UK.
