The stand out stand up of 2010,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dara O Briain - This Is the Show [Live] [DVD] (DVD)
Christmas 2010 ended up being a pretty poor one for stand up comedy. Some of the heavy hitters came out swinging and missing.
Thankfully, this DVD/performace saved it from being a total disaster!
Dara has a natural talen for fan interaction and tying it all up seamlessly into his pre-written material.
This show is always fun, never offensive and just brilliant from start to end.
It is a real credit to his charm and natural ability that he spends so much time talking to the audience and it never feels like a drag. He takes the mic out of people but he never treads into making them feel uncomfortable, its all like good banter with friends. And I think this is one of his greatest qualities as a comic, he is friendly.
The material its self is sharp and well observed. He spends some time on topics, such as family and kids, that dont always register with me. This doesnt stop it from being hilarious.
Overall, the shining moment in Daras career so far and a stand up dvd that must be added to the collection.
