5.0 out of 5 stars Dave gets better with second disk
I enjoyed the 1st DVD from Leeds and having seen the tour twice this year was looking to the second. I was in the audience for this DVD. They have picked the best 70 minutes fron the hour and half he did that evening. This DVD shows Daves progression from just telling jokes to more observation material and monologues which alhough is restricted mainly to mainstream areas...

2.0 out of 5 stars Dream on
very disappointing...for the most part old mainstream gags badly disguised as observational material...only occasionally does Dave slip into originality but all too quickly dives back into the dullness and safety of the old club gags... He's better than this dvd!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dave gets better with second disk, 22 Dec 2005
By A Customer
I enjoyed the 1st DVD from Leeds and having seen the tour twice this year was looking to the second. I was in the audience for this DVD. They have picked the best 70 minutes fron the hour and half he did that evening. This DVD shows Daves progression from just telling jokes to more observation material and monologues which alhough is restricted mainly to mainstream areas still packs a killer punch. Areas covered includes worms, birthday cards, hospitals, family weddings. I had doubts whether Dave was going to be around as a long term star following the decision at the moment not to make the any more Phoenix Nights, but this DVD shows he is here for the long term. If you enjoyed the 1st DVD, you will enjoy this. It took Dave a year to come up with the new material on the DVD but the wait is well worth it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not quite as funny as his others....., 3 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We both love Dave Spikey - especially after seeing his 'Overnight Success Tour Live' DVD. That DVD is hilarious, even after seeing it several times, it still manages to make us laugh and giggle!
This DVD is funny too but somehow doesn't quite scale the heights of that first DVD. There's lots of funny stuff in there and it's well worth the few quid that it's down to at the moment.
Spikey's best DVD's? - Definitely the 'Overnight Success Tour' then the 'Best Medicine Tour' (a return to his best form) and 'Living the Dream' trails in at third. Just our personal opinion but hope this helps.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the second Dave Spikey CD we have bought recently. Although a little bit of the material was similar, we still laughed all the way through. Great stuff!
