Product Description

Product Description

All profits from Comic Aid will be donated to the Disasters Emergency Committee for the Asian Tsunami appeal.

Shot live at the one off Comic Aid benefit gig at London’s Carling Apollo – which sold out in just three and a half minutes of tickets being put on sale – the DVD features the entire uncut show for all those unfortunate enough to have missed out on tickets.

The 3 hour show sees Jonathan Ross, Jack Dee, Graham Norton, Julian Clary, and Lily Savage host a stellar comic line-up that includes; Lee Evans, Dawn French, Jimmy Carr, Ardal O’Hanlon, Johnny Vegas, Bill Bailey, Bo’ Selecta! star The Bear, Jo Brand, Jon Culshaw, Omid Djalili, Otis Lee Crenshaw, Eddie Izzard, The League Of Gentlemen with Miranda Richardson, Alistair McGowan, Dylan Moran, Dave Spikey, Simon Pegg & Jessica Stevenson. Psychological illusionist Derren Brown and international percussion sensation Stomp also present their own unique blend of stage entertainment.

Jack Dee said: "We are hoping to raise enough money to prevent Sting having to write a song about it....PLEASE, PLEASE HELP!"

Having been there on the night, I can say that this was an absolutely breathtaking, rib-achingly funny evening of top drawer comedy. If you saw the BBC broadcast, then that should have given you a taster of what to expect on this full length recording.
The event was hosted very well by Jonathan Ross, Jack Dee, Graham Norton, Julian Clary, and Lily Savage, who all did their best to get the crowd excited, cheerfully bantering with the front row and cracking increasingly cheeky jokes.
The first proper act of the evening, Ardal O'Hanlon, started slowly but eventually won everybody over with his jokes about ambulances and his Irish family. Next up, Alistair McGowan rattled through a few of his favourite impressions (including a particularly fine 'Parkinson' moment) before moving into more broadly observational material. Omid Djalili gave us an energetic routine of silly jokes ("I am the only Iranian comic, but that's still technically three more than Germany"), interspersed with some hilarious attempts at belly dancing. Jo Brand was her usual deadpan self, attacking the uselessness of her husband, and telling an extremely good anecdote about the late Malcolm Hardee. Next up, the percussion group Stomp took to the stage and banged things in a mildy amusing fashion (its impossible to explain, you really need to see it), before it was the turn of Jimmy Carr. This 'slightly offensive' comic gave us a fine selection of his brilliantly written but astonishingly rude one liners, causing gales of laughter and sharp intakes of breath in equal measure. The Bo Selecta Bear attempted an improvised set, loosely based on 'Baddiel and Skinner Unplanned', with Jonathan Ross as his sidekick, but the least said about this bit the better I think.

I saw this as it was recently aired on BBC1.What a magnificent idea! Get some of the best comedians in Britian and get them to all do stand up comedy!
There are all the best here and for everyone from Graham Norton to Johnny Vegas! The sheer list of comedians in this is unbelievable,even the bear from Bo'Selecta! makes an appearance here!
The fact is you'll be laughing throughout and it's going towards a good cause.It's like Red Nose Day,minus the annoying breaks to 'see why we're doing this'.Even though they're good you've seen them 5 times by the end of Red Nose Day,so just buy this DVD,give some of your cash to charity and laugh yourself to sleep!
Another good charity DVD is The best comedy DVD in the World! It doesn't quite meet it's title,but the proceeds all go to charity as with this DVD,so dig deep,this DVD deserves it,even it wasn't for charity!

I know it's for the tsumani appeal and everything and if you're a fan of comedy in general then I'd recommend you buy it BUT:
1.) I noticed I'd seen some of the show before (Ardhal O' Hanlon and Bill Bailey spring to mind) and
2.) I was really disappointed with some of the other acts who I was really looking forward to seeing (Simon Pegg and Jessica Stevenson for one).
However: I did think Dylan Moran, Eddie Izzard and Alistair McGowan were excellent. League of Gentlemen were terrifying as usual.
