That doesn't mean however, that it is cheap, lame Chucklevision style humour. Well, maybe the "Mati-neigh" jokes are, but don't let that put you off.
What marks Tim shows out from other short gag merchants is that he thoughtfully intersperses them with some of the most bizarre and silly skits and props you've ever seen. As a fan of pure silliness, I think there's a lack of downright sillines in comedy at the moment - and there's nothing sillier than a load of Kellogg's variety cereal boxes attached to an umbrella frame. I've seen people like Stewart Francis and as funny as he is, it can get a bit heavy going and tedious with nothing else to break it all up, but as I say, Tim provides plenty of visual gags, songs and antics to stop the monotony.
The show itself I have to say, does seem to to start a little slowly. Personally I would say the stronger jokes come in later. That said, there are still some decent chuckles to be had along the way.
"Punslinger" lacks the strength of classic skits like 'Flag Hippo' or 'Pen Behind The Ear' (although do watch out for the encore) but there are still plenty of absurdities in a similar vein - 'Sheepy Up' and 'Ventriloquism' to name but a few.
There are some interesting extras too. For example, a film of Tim trying out all manner of strange and silly new material in order to prepare for the tour.Read more ›
That said, it should come with a health warning that you could actually become damaged from laughing so much - there were several points at the recording where I did worry that I might stop breathing or similar.
So buy it - but be careful!
To start with I didn't think I was going to enjoy it as I thought it too childish. However I kept watching & was very glad that I did. The title of this DVD is very appropriate as TIm Vine delivers joke after joke in quick fire succession & it's deceptively clever & very punny!! There are some very clever sketches. I especially enjoyed the one about ventriloquism.
I can't remember laughing so much for a long time.
Don't be put off by the cowboy theme, either: Vine does open the show with a small number of cowboy jokes ('seven of them - and they're magnificent') but he soon reverts to his usual onslaught of everyday puns. All of the material appears to be new, and there is certainly a lot of intelligence behind much of the wordplay.
In truth, the only real downside to Punslinger is the lack of a really killer joke or skit; there's nothing equivalent to 'pen behind the ear' that sticks with you after the end of the show. It's still a funny hour-or-so and therefore does what it says on the tin - but, unlike some of Vine's earlier outings, Punslinger seems to offer little that would inspire repeated viewing. 3.5 out of 5.
