He starts off with a few gags,then moves on to comic monologues,by the end he has so many characters that they all end up interacting as he brings the show to an end(a 1 man show with many characters).
The great thing about it is that having spent many years doing stand-up he has realised that the audience dont always have to be laughing and that through irony and subtlety he can give a message to his audience that they will remember long after they have forgotten all of the jokes.
Lenny takes serious issues, such as religion, terrorism, crime and love and tells them through character that you could meet in real life. Nothing is over exaggerated, just told how it is. It takes getting used to, but works fairly well.
However, on my second viewing of this DVD, after a knew how the story was going to be told, I was more open minded to the jokes. This time it was the Lenny I remembered.
If you find yourself losing interest, take a break, and then watch again... it worked for me.
My attention turned to understanding the audience this time. Lenny is a big lovable personality and does a lot for others and I feel the audience turn-out is in support of just this, not his predictable performances. I reckon they're all aware that his material is garbage but they don't care, because they admire his personality so much.
Unfortunately, that doesn't make this product a worthwhile purchase, unless maybe you are under 16. I know stand-up is very difficult. I really admire him too for trying and I'm rooting for him to improve (it's why I keep watching) but it's clear the guy just hasn't got the IT factor. It's the best comedy performance I've seen from him, yet it only has 'amusing' moments, sometimes. It's just not worth the money as a stand-up comedy DVD - Sorry.
