5.0 out of 5 stars
Funniest comic ever!, 30 Nov 2009
I never heard of Lee Evans until early this year when I found out he would be appearing in the Doctor Who special Planet Of The Dead. Sounded like his casting was considered "odd" so I checked him out on You Tube. I found him to be absolutely hilarious! I'm from Massachusetts in the USA, and I was disappointed to find that no DVDs of Lee were available here.
In September I bought an IView 1800HD Upconverting Multi-Region DVD player with an included HDMI cable (from Amazon.com, so here's a positive plug for another of their products!), so I decided to take a chance that a British disk would work (I was skeptical until I actually saw it play) and ordered the XL Tour. I was quite elated when it arrived from overseas in just over a week! The disk played flawlessly and the image and sound quality is excellent. I haven't laughed so hard in ages!
I have watched it 3 times already and Lee Evans gets funnier every time. He is a master at observational humor and an incredible physical comedian. His facial expressions alone are enough to make you laugh! He says a bit too many F-words throughout the set, but like Lewis Black, it works in the context of what he's doing. And he's also quite sweet and disarming too, you really feel his frustration when he explains the absurdity of the situation. There is a little bit lost in translation for me with the British accent and euphemisms, but overall this disk is great. I'm having all my friends watch it, as Lee Evans is unknown in the US. I have already ordered more of his disks for Christmas and I can't wait!
