In My Own Words:
I'm a married father of two brilliant boys, living in a sleepy seaside town on the suffolk coast

I have many interests, but my most relevant one to this site is my love of stand-up comedy, so I buy A LOT of stand-up dvds off here.

Lost Christmas - BBC1 - Starring BAFTA, Olivier an&hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ Eddie Izzard

Ok, so I love christmas films, and own 200 christmas films on dvd, so whenever a new film is out, I watch it, but having see so many festive films, I rarely get "excited", just pleased.....until i watched this film last year, it's an amazing film, all of the cast are excellent, and the storyline is superb. I pre-ordered this well in advance and having watched it again this afternoon, it is just as brilliant as I remember. So if you like your films to have a brilliant, deep storyline with well-written and formed characters and top-notch acting, this is the film for you, excellent!
Greg Behrendt Is Uncool [DVD] [2005] [Region 1] [U&hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ Greg Behrendt
I bought this dvd cheap from a marketplace seller, not knowing much about Greg Behrendt at all, and so I wasn't really expecting much at all, but as it turns out, I was pleasantly surprised.

Richard Pryor: Live On Sunset Strip/Here And Now [&hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ Richard Pryor

I am a massive fan of Richard Pryor, and if you watch these two marvellous shows, you will see why he is now heralded as a comedy genius.

His comedy timing was amazing, and his honesty, although sometimes almost painful to hear, shines through his material, which is always funny, consistently in fact!

I know a lot of people prefer his "live in concert" dvd, which is also great, but I think "here and now" is his finest hour, (other than his live cds, go check out the boxset of his albums, a really great collection of Pryor at his hilarious best), I can't recommend it highly enough.

If you want to see a 100% comedy genius at work, buy this, sit back and be… Read more
