Mr O Briain is back in town, and he's as good as usual; as good as you should expect of him. His old DVD is simply amazing, so I was worried this new one might be not that good, and that I would be dissapointed. But since I started watching it I knew it was going to be as good as the old one, or even better.

He is always hilarious, but the best bits of his shows are the interaction with the audience; that's, in my opinion what makes his shows so brilliant. Many comedians are good on telling jokes, but they can be a bit boring, just an hour and a half talking by their own. With Dara O Briain, you can never get bored.

I hope he records many of his live shows because living in Spain I have no oportunity of going to see him live, and this man is a real treasure on stage.

When it comes to "getting the crack" with the audience, this guy can do no wrong. Unlike other comedians, he refrains from being rude or abusive to his audience members and engages in witty conversation, clearly off the top of his head, whilst managing to link in his very funny stories to make an hilarious show. I loved his previous DVD and love this one even more. I watched the Irish show in the extras and, even though I failed to understand a few of the clearly regional jokes (which he warns the viewers might happen) I still was able to giggle at the majority of the material. A very funny, hugely entertaining man.

This is what comedy is all about. I put this on after watching Frankie Boyle's DVD (which I was really disappointed with) and boy, what a difference. Dara has great charisma, interacts with the audience really well and tells some really funny jokes - I thoroughly enjoyed this DVD and it was well worth the money. I first saw Dara on QI and then on the excellent Mock The Week, and know that he has a rather naughty side also, however, this DVD was good humour and didn't cross too many lines - it was great fun. Well done Dara, keep up the good work and long may you entertain us!

This DVD was filmed on 17th May at the Hammersmith Apollo..... and we were there. Dara was as superb and sharp as normal. Young would be electricians especially need to watch this for Dara's theories on electricity, and watch out for the advice for homeopaths at the interval. Also enjoy the history of the discovery of oil in Reading, and the committee effort to design an ice lolly.

The real added bonus for me was that my 40th birthday evening entertainment is available on DVD, although that's not a recommendation for everyone else per se.

Enjoy....

Dara O Briain is funny, charming, outrageously intelligent, and kind. Always kind, even when he's gently mocking the audience members. And can I add he's a lot better looking than he often gives himself credit for - especially those eyes.

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.

I saw Dara on this tour and he was excellent. He is brilliant at interacting with the audience and the Yakult joke was great. I will definitely be buying this DVD and looking forward to his next tour.

I was lucky enough to see Dara on this tour in Glasgow. He was amazing, I was a little disapointed to see that the televised one was in the Hammersmith and not in Glasgow as I have attended many comedy gigs and this one was one of the finest i have ever seen.

Top quality - a must see
