4.0 out of 5 stars Fun From Down Under, 26 Nov. 2012
This review is from: Adam Hills: Inflatable [DVD] [2012] (DVD)
I bought this DVD a while ago,and I had no real idea of what to expect from it.I had seen Adam Hills on Mock The Week,and hed made me laugh a few times,but like most at the time he was swamped by Frankie Boyle,who had more or less made the show his own.So he was something of an unknown quantity,and when the show began I still wasnt quite sure,as things get off to a slow start.He talks to the audience,the regulars he calls his stalkers,and introdudes the lady on stage with him,who signs the entire show,for thoes who dont know Adam Hills is himself disabled.It soon becomes clear that his fans really do love him,and he clearly thinks the world of them,infact he comes over as a genuinely nice guy.He soon hits his stride and the show takes off,and there is some very good material delivered with style.Some of the references to Austrailian products(the DVD was shot in Melbourne)dont mean anything to us in the UK,and trip some of the jokes up,but its never enough to become a problem.

Im going to be honest,mr Hills,in my oppinion,isnt yet up there with the likes of Ed Byrne,Rhod Gilbert,Ross Noble or the iconic figures of Izzard or Connolly,but hes good enough to be,he has everything it takes.This isnt the funniest stand up Ive ever seen,but it was good enough to make me want to see more of Mr Hills,because he is a funny guy,and very likable.
