Lee brings his trademark brand of high energy banter, well crafted gags and sharp one-liners to venues across the country in his national sell-out live show, Going Out Live.

Lee Mack is the sort of comedian who is difficult to dislike, he comes across as a very warm guy and his humour is on the whole not of the offensive variety. He is generally considered a fairly low-brow comedian compared to the more satirical acts out there but it's clear that he's an clever guy and one or two of his gags got little response from the audience as they struck a more intelligent chord and felt different from the rest of his material. He's a natural on stage and not scared to make himself the subject of his own jokes, early on he engages in banter with the audience and some of the best laughs in the DVD come from his off-the-hoof comments and sharp responses.
This is a show of new material but I have heard some of it from his TV appearances so the full impact of those jokes were slightly lost with me, and I felt that some jokes had a large build up which didn't seem to pay off at the end. There is enough strong material on here though to ensure that you do have a good laugh, but it is a bit patchy and doesn't constantly make you laugh throughout. This would have been better off as an excellent 45 minute show rather than the hour and ten minutes which feels a bit padded.
The additional features include the warm-up act (a short stint by Simon Evans) and featurette on the tour itself.
In a nutshell: This certainly isn't a bad stand-up comedy DVD, it contains enough laughs to make it a valuable title for a comedy DVD collection - but the quality varies between jokes and the routine suffers from some weaker material - thankfully though when it's good it's really good and those moments make it worthwhile.
Really enjoyed the extras for a change - good backstage mini-doc, where you get a good feel for the real man offstage, as well as highlights from support act Simon Evans's act.
I've seen some of Lee Mack's live shows on TV before, and he made me laugh so much I was in tears. Unfortunately, I sat through the whole of Going Out Live, and laughed out loud maybe three or four times in 71 minutes! Lee's delivery was fast and energetic, but his material (which he wrote entirely himself) just wasn't funny. Amusing, yes. But funny, no.
It seems like, in order to compensate for his weak material, Lee decided to try and be as offensive as possible. The problem is, repeatedly shouting the "c" word and calling women in the audience fat and old, isn't my idea of comedy. If it's yours though, then you're absolutely going to love this.
I could go on, but I think I've established that I didn't enjoy it. Looking through the Customer Reviews here on Amazon, I've noticed that no one has actually detailed what you get on the DVD. So I might as well do that, before I put it in the bin. Basically, the Main Menu has three items:
1. Play Live Show (1h 10m 55s)
2. Scene Selection
3. Bonus Features
If you go into Scene Selection, you'll find the Live Show broken into the following 16 chapters, which should give you a rough idea of the topics Lee covers:
1. We're Here In Hammersmith
2. Contains Strong Language
3. Obsessed With Age
4. French Words
5. Location, Location, Location
6. The Gas Man
7. Singing With Manchesterness
8. The Serious Bit
9. Tonight's Star Prize
11. Parents Are To Blame

I was blown over. This show made me laugh more than most, and I'm really surprised that the reviews on here aren't better, this stand-up show I found outstanding, so did my wife and friends I lent it to.
I didn't find the DVD shocking as others did, he seems to be a really nice guy and it came across to me on screen? (not the same experience as I had when watching the latest Ricky Gervais stand-up - "science").
Bit bemused by some of the reviews on here, maybe there is a clip somewhere you can watch online.
For me, it is up there with Eddie Izzard - "Definite Article", Peter Kay - "Bungalow tour" and Stewart Lee - "Stand-up comedian", and for someone who isn't (wasn't?) a fan that is high praise!
All I'm saying is, before listening to the naysayers, try and find a clip somewhere and make your mind up after watching it, because if you like comedy and you don't watch this you could be missing out.
