Egotistical, cringy, tedious, dreadful.,
This review is from: Russell Brand: Scandalous - Live At The O2 [DVD] (DVD)
I went to the show with some friends and we all felt the same way, along with quite a few people in the bar area. I got it, don't get me wrong but the whole thing was embarrassing and narcissistic. The material was very weak, carping on about his mishap on the radio. That was the basis for the whole show. Obviously this trivial episode meant a lot more to him and I found it very conceited that this prancing exhibitionist should think the material remotely entertaining. I felt hoodwinked and begrudged putting my money into this guys bank account but the sycophants in the audience lapped it up. So awful to hear halfwits shouting out that they loved him and his thanksss response was err so insincere. I left when Jack Black and some other cretin filmed a scene for some dud film. Asking the audience to applaud and all the sheep did as they were told. My wife said she tried to enjoy it but thought it was crap. I did actually enjoy his first dvd but I think his ego has deluded him and lets face it bet this one hasn't shifted as many units as the first dvd. Man, what a character assassination but deserved. When I got home I watched some curb for some creative comedy. Me and Russell are finished. Bish, bash, bosh job done. I hassabeena but neveragainer.

Couldn't agree more. If you like great stand-up try Jim Jeffries or Adam Bloom. Two of my faves.

Thanks. Check them out. I have to say though i think comedy, music, art and film are a bit dead and flat at the mo.
