5.0 out of 5 stars Strange but true 9 May 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Stephen Wright operates with a delay that must have been weird to start with.
After every joke there's a pause while the audience figures it out, then laughter.
So the audience isn't laughing at the current joke but the one three minutes earlier.
I've listened a few times now which means I can laugh in real time.

4.0 out of 5 stars This guy is really funny ! 29 July 2011
By GVZFS
Format:DVD
A very enjoyable first part of the film. But then for reasons not known to me, there's a second part where he has a amateurish black and white film depicting a student film narrative with no relevance to the first half.

3.0 out of 5 stars ?! 22 Feb 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Great material but the extras on the DVD go beyond weird, I have no words to describe the film that follows the gig. I reccomend you watch the set, laugh alot and then turn it off before your brain leaks out from your ears!

3.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious the first time 6 Aug 2008
By grimboj
Format:DVD
Steve stands out as THE dead-pan comedian. There's always an awkward silence for 1/2 a second after a Wright joke as the audience tries to figure out which level the joke is on - he's so dynamic and his dead-pan is so flat that you get caught out every time. He's co-wrote of the last decades funniest comedies and it shows. Definitely worth buying, I use this DVD to set me in the right mood for things like a good nights sleep.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too short 13 July 2007
By Thom Cutler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
You probably don't need me to tell you that Steven Wright is a comic genius. If you doubt it, punch his name into Google and check out the compendiums of his one-liners. On a good day he can outdo Groucho Marx. Some of the material on this DVD isn't up to his best, but my main beef about this offering has to do with its length. The live set on this disc lasts only 42 minutes. Then there's a half-hour short film that's long on arty B&W cinematography but short on laughs. And then there's a grab from a 1988 performance which lasts - wait for it - a whole 2 minutes and 16 seconds. Given the paucity of Wright material on the market, it's a pity the people behind this DVD didn't put together a far more generous package. By all means buy it - just know what you're letting yourself in for running-time-wise.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very funny stuff, some classics, and updates, must have for a fan 2 Jun 2007
By Concerned One - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This is a great DVD, featuring a full show of the classic comedian Stephen Wright. His classic one liners and endless rambles, with his classic emotionless delivery. I'm glad some of this is finally captured to DVD. The film "one soldier" that was at the end, written and directed by Steven is alright, but I just lost interest about 10 minutes into it, so that is why i did not give this a 5. However, the bonus featurette of 2:30 seconds of an old show in boston in 1988 is a classic bit of his routine, a fine touch to finish off this piece. Worth buying and having on hand.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Content, Same as "I still have a pony" 11 May 2008
By Steve - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This was a very funny DVD and I'm a big Steven Wright fan, but I was really disappointed that this was the same performance as that found on his recent CD "I still have a pony." For many people this will not be a problem, but it is something to be aware of before you buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Steven Wright doesn't disappoint 16 July 2007
By Mark Weisinger - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The stand-up portion of this DVD is the main attraction, and while it is too short (42 minutes), if you're a fan of his dry, surreal humor, this classic material will have you pausing the DVD so you can quit laughing long enough to catch the next jokes. By the time it was over, my sides hurt.

The short film "One Soldier" is another animal altogether. At first, it appears to be an obvious parody of art-house cinema from Federico Fellini to Jim Jarmusch (with Jarmusch's "Dead Man" being an obvious influence), but as it progresses, it darkens, until by the end, you're left somewhat shellshocked by Wright's seemingly bleak, almost nihilistic, and deeply disturbing worldview. Avoid watching it if you're remotely depressed.

As for the early material, it was good but disappointingly short. Someone else mentioned the wealth of classic Wright material out there, and why none of it has made its way to DVD is a mystery. I've got the Comic Relief shows, and his sets are always among the highlights. So why can't they give fans some of the classic shows from that era on DVD?

Still, even at its length, this DVD is well-worth the price. If you're a Steven Wright fan, it's essential.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing 20 April 2007
By Sarbjit S. Khalsa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Finally he puts put another DVD since his 1985 HBO special. I got a chance to see him in Canada so I know this DVD is great, you get over 2 hours footage. You won't be disappointed. He is one of my favorites along with Mitch Hedberg, Austin Peterson, and Dimitri Martin.

Enjoy.
