Okay, normal objective review service resumed now...
Except it's very hard to be objective, because I loved every minute of this DVD. I watched it with my husband and he thoroughly enjoyed it too (needless to say I was careful not to mention Dara's lovely eyes).
I bought this along with Dara's 2006 DVD, and for anyone afraid they'll get more of the same, they won't. You can justify owning both DVDs. Because Dara gets something different from each new audience, and is able, with quick fire wit, to turn their lives into something hilarious and special. The encores are worth waiting for alone, as he deftly brings together all the elements of the show so far (and there's no way he could rehearse that part), and makes the audience feel a million dollars.
The extras are great too. There's a fantastic show at Vicar Street, with all the stuff that he says only works in Ireland, when actually his humour travels really well, and he does - which I thought was rather sweet - translate for the benefit of a couple of English audience members.
There's a very funny drinking game with Mock The Week's charming David Mitchell, which also gives an insight into how Dara works the audience.
And finally, a short but sweet extra that those of us watching the DVD wouldn't normally get to see, as it segues to the interval.
So DO buy this DVD if you like intelligent, quick fire humour from somenoe who makes the audience feel they're the most important part of the show. You won't be disappointed.
During the London Apollo performance O'Briain goes through such topics as the discovery of oil in Reading, the shape of ice cream cones, Lap dancing clubs, and heengages in alot of audience particpation. This dvd is fun for all the family as O'Briain does not resort to shock comedy ala Franie Boyle.
This show treads the line of Observational and traditional humour well with a bit of surrealism thrown in for good effect, all of them in perfect balance. His interaction with the audience is done with enthusiasm and wit unlike the blind harassment his co-panellist Frankie Boyle throws out. Having seen all of his DVD's I think this one is the best, but only by a margin. One of the great Stand Up DVD's of this decade easily & I still laugh at it frequently after several viewings.. Highly recommend.
As always, his interaction with the front row of the audience are a key part of the show, and this demonstrates Dara's consumate skill in pulling out interesting and hilarious anecdotes from the audience. The two cobblers describing chasing a thief had me completely in stitches, and the rest of the show maintains a similarly consistent high standard.
Thoroughly recommended viewing! :-)
