Amnesty International (Ireland) presents "Stop! You're Killing Me" which features the very best of Irish comedy performed in support of Human Rights. Recorded live at Dublin's Vicar Street Comedy Club in November 2004, the stellar line up of Irish comedians includes acts from Tommy Tiernan (Supertramp), Dylan Moran (Black Books), Ardal O'Hanlon (Father Ted), Dara O'Briain (The Live Floor Show) and performances from other well known Irish comedians such as Eddie Bannon, Des Bishop, Jason Byrne and Mark Geary. Available for the first time on DVD, this is a quick fire show from a new generation of Irish comics and is your chance to laugh and support a great cause at the same time!

Unfortunately the DVD was a big let dowm. Each comic was only on for about ten minutes. At best they never had chance to get into their stride. At worst some of the comics just weren't funny. The sound quality wasn't up to the standard of other stand up DVD's either.
This DVD was a big let down and I doubt I'll be watching it again anytime soon.
The 5 star performance goes to Des Bishop. I cant believe this guy has slipped under my comedy radar. Ive tried to buy every dvd of his based on this performance, it was that good. The guys an american who has spent most of his life in Ireland, so considers himself practically Irish, but makes a point of comparing the differences between the Irish and Americans. His bit on Irish women is daring and could have backfired, but its so hysterical that even the hardest Irish woman would be in stitches. Id go as far to say that for the price, the dvd is worth buying just to see Des Bishops set. Most of the others let the side down and please dont be put off Jason Byrne, he's so much better than this.
The venue seems quite dark and small (no apollo job here) and you cant help but feel that all the comedians (apart from Des and Tommy) were saving their best material and as they had like 10 minutes each, they couldnt get going properly. But hey, its for a good cause, amnesty international and its dirt cheap. Worth a purchase
Ardal O Hanlons jokes on the Irish laws are quite funny too, well worth a buy!
I bought this because I loved Tommy Tiernan at the time, and was kind of interested to see what Dylan Moran and Ardal O'Hanlon were capable of, since I'd heard lots but seen little. This DVD was a great gateway show to get into a lot of comedians who I now love and it works perfectly as that. Each comedian gets approximately ten minutes to strut their stuff, by and large using material culled from their own shows, and to bring you into their style and supporters. There's also some extra footage, largely audience interaction, which was cut from the full show. Considering how short some of the segments cut were it seems odd to exclude them from the DVD. However, the deleted bits are funny, and it's perhaps lucky they were included at all.
So really the only reason to get this DVD is if you're interested in checking out some new comedians, but don't want to spend full money on their own show, and consider watching their work on YouTube stealing. The profits from the DVD go to Amnesty International, and the show features the cream of Irish comedy (with one or two exceptions) which is well worth a look if you're new to Irish comedians or, since there's a good diverse display of styles on show, just looking for a decent present for someone. With this much talent there's something for everyone to like.
Dylan Moran's short set is great, as is the fab Dara O'Briain. Ardal is ok, but the rest are pretty dire.
Do yourself a favour and just buy a full length set from Dylan or Dara.
