'The Joke-amotive' follows the pattern of previous Tim Vine routines. The quick-fire punning is there as before, as is the prop-based humour. However, although there are silly songs there's nothing to match the elegant brilliance of 'Alarm Bells', 'Family Holiday', or 'My Marvellous Metronome'. Flag Hippo returns in the extras, with a twist, but compared to previous routines this one is not quite so polished or so 'rich'. There are fewer rapid and connected pun sequences and there are one or two too many non-joke jokes. The extras are very watchable, particularly the one with Flag Hippo and the Box Song. I like this DVD, it's very funny, and in places it is laugh out loud funny: if you like Tim Vine you are certain to like this, but I think this is not his most amazing offering. "Tim Vine - So I Said To This Bloke" is still the grooviest.
