Incredibly funny, skilfully crafted comedy. The sign interpreter Catherine King is a real gem. Positive, live affirming fun. Happyism.
This DVD can only be bettered by watching the live show. Worth every penny.
The label warns of "strong language" and recommends viewers to be 15 or over. Some of the words are indeed a bit rude but Adam Hills is never crude, spiteful or unpleasant, so I was more than happy for my 12-year-old to watch the DVD.

I bought this as a present for my son at Christmas. He has been studying BSL at Uni for a couple of years now and is still doing it (as he works full time and has to do the course part time). The first thing he said when he opened it was..."Oh I wanted to get this" so another present that went down well.

I love when I get someone something they really wanted!!

Adam Hills is very funny and some words he makes the signer, sign are hysterical. Great what you can learn too by watching this, and still be entertained at the same time.

A great stand-up show and thoroughly enjoyed by the whole family. This show is fairly similar to his 'Inflatable' show in places and if you're looking to try an Adam Hills show I'd recommend that one over this. Having said that, they both have their charms.
Definitely one of the better stand-up dvds of the year!

Happyism! It couldn't have a better title. I am a huge fan of "The Last Leg" and this really lived up to expectations. Adam Hills always comes over as a nice person and his humour is kind (except when it comes to racists) but I'm fine with that.

Adam Hills was at his very best in this show. If you like Adam, you'll love this. A new show but reminders of his past, the Swedish chef, the late Steve Irwin, and tackling the problems of under age audience members. His patter with the audience is a highlight, getting the best out of them whilst not humiliating. Only Billy Connolly has made me laugh more. there is some bad language, but it is used sparingly and it doesn't offend, love the finale too.The extras are ok, a bit short. A good animation of his routine concerning the swimmer with no arms. would've liked to see more about the man himself, where he lives etc.

I've loved Adam Hills for years. When I first moved to Australia 10 years ago, he presented a show called "Spicks and Specks: which is basically an Australian version "Never Mind the Buzzcocks", and was extremely funny on that show. I've seen him on numerous things since then and have grown to be a huge fan. This DVD certainly doesn't disappoint. It's hilarious from start to finish. Adams comic timing and delivery is just brilliant and having a sign interpreter on stage with him is a superb idea, it's something every comedian should do. Superb DVD from one of the best comedians around at the moment.

Adam Hills never fails to make me laugh. I might be a bit biased because he is one of my favourite comedians and because I've seen some of the material live at the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh this year already, but it's dead funny. One of those DVDs you won't just watch once, but again and again with many different people. His material is hilarious, spontaneous, passionate, and he even makes it look so easy! This is a great treat either for yourself or for a friends/family as a present. You won't be disappointed, I guarantee you!

Adam Hills is an Aussie. But don't hold that against him. I jest, a very good comedian who plays it his way.

this stand up routine features a lady who signs (BSL) throughout the performance so that the deaf in the audience can enjoy too.

I not only love Adam as a comedian but also his open and inclusive instincts.

This one isn't as funny as a stand up set he did in 2014, for C4 (I don't know if its on DVD but if it is get that as well) but it's still great

This is the united kingdom version of Inflatable which is ok but no point buying if you have the other dvd.

I must admit I pre-ordered this and had forgotten about it so when it arrived in the post I was initially surprised (my own fault entirely!) However, my husband and I decided to watch it that night and we haven't laughted so much in a long time! We really like Adam Hills from the other things he's done (such as the Last Leg) and this really didn't disappoint.
