3.0 out of 5 stars Hit and Miss Thing, 10 Jan 2008
This review is from: Alan Carr - Tooth Fairy LIVE [DVD] (DVD)
I like Alan Carr a lot. I think his material is well-observed, fresh and insightful by and large. I found the routine on this DVD however something of a mixed bag.

Was about 15 minutes in before the first proper laugh. And there are some laugh out loud moments to be found on here but altogether I found it a very patchy set. It works best when he explores a topic at length but lots of times he just lurches from one theme to another with no real connectedness.

He could take a few lessons from Margaret Cho's first two stand up videos in terms of consistancy of storytelling. And tackle a few more overtly gay topics. I may be wrong but it feels like he's dumbed the content down to appeal to a (largely) straight/broader audience.
