The Debut DVD from Britain’s Hottest Breakthrough Comedy Star

Having stormed shows such as Have I Got News For You (BBC1), Live At The Apollo (BBC1), Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow (BBC1) and now as the new host of Channel 4’s Stand Up For The Week and team captain on 8 Out Of 10 Cats, the brilliantly funny Jon Richardson is the UK’s rising comedy star to watch out for!

I'm a big fan of Jon Richardson and I always look forward to his panel show appearances. This DVD is of his 2012 live tour and is certainly worth watching.
For anyone who is not familiar with his material, he mainly concentrates on putting himself down, admitting social & personal anxiety as well as focusing on and analyzing everyday routines of people's personal behaviour. This exploration of such familiar situations/irritations make him very easy to relate to and takes it further by looking at habits on an almost microscopic level.
On the DVD performance he did seem to do more of the squeaky voice than I remember him doing when I saw him live and so (for me) was on the verge of damaging some of his routines with its over-use.
The DVD also includes an audio commentary and also his appearance on Live at the Apollo.

This is a good show of a great tour. Although I didn't laugh quite as much as I did when I saw him live, I would still say that any fans of Jon should get enjoyment from watching this show.

Jon Richardson is just hilarious and is definitely worth a watch. He has a style that is sarcastic yet honest - he nails a lot of carefully observed imbecilic behaviours in life and is open about his own OCD behaviours when it comes to things such as doing the washing up properly after his flat-mates have made a pig's ear of it, which has left him twitching...

If you've had a bad (s****y) day at the office working with people you don't like, there's no need to get yourself a bowl of Viennetta and chips to cheer yourself up!! Just put on a copy of this DVD and you will soon have a smile on your face. This is intelligent and wise comedy, if (sadly) mainly not suitable for my kids. (They can watch the bit about household chores though, they might even learn something....!) Congratulations on a great show, Jon (always a chance you might read this some time?) and thank you for lots of great entertainment and for your honesty and integrity about life. I hope you will keep writing, keep touring (I promise I will come and see your live show next year if you are on ANYWHERE in the UK) and keep brightening up my evenings by being adorable on 8 out of 10 Cats.

Richardson simply introduces a whole new topic into comedy, focusing a lot on his everyday troubles with his OCD tendencies. In this regard, you will probably find this show funny if you are interested in, empathetic towards and amused by other people's view of life. If you only watch it for the punchlines, you may find this less funny as Jon mostly observes the ridiculousness of certain life scenarious.

I love Jon Richardson and find his slightly depressing, yet logical view on things very funny. I was pleased with this dvd and it had me laughing though out!
