Ricky's Stand-up is Sickeningly Good, 16 Oct 2008
It gets to the stage where you'd like Ricky to fail, just once, to prove he is mortal.
Stand-up comedians spend years doing gong shows and open spots in scruffy clubs, being heckled and booed by a handful of cynical drunks, before they final get the skills and recognition to earn a living.
But not Ricky. He steps straight out onto a national tour and shows us how it's done. He is a natural. He has his own style that is instantly recognisable. And his humour is varied, challenging, intelligent and - above all -funny.
I don't agree with the previous reviewers comments about George Carlin and co. I guess it's subjective, or maybe its a transatlantic thing - but George doesn't do it for me at all.
Ricky is one of few comedians whose DVDs can make me cry with laughter and make my sides ache. They are worth watching again and again.
