More laughs from the patriotic landlord.
on 27 December 2005
"Al Murray - Live 2005" is the third DVD featuring the ever popular character comic, the Pub Landlord. In this edition you can expect yet more patriotic ramblings from the man with the one dimensional viewpoint. Once again his show relies heavily on audience contribution and it's fantastic to witness Murray quickly and with great wit, put audience members in their place. Anyone within the first three rows of the audience is guaranteed a word with "the guv'nor" and even those sitting further back are far from safe.
In this show the Landlord once again targets both the French and German nations, all in good heart of course. He explains why the British national anthem is the envy of the world, calling on an audience member to recite it several times, talks about the inequality between men and women and gives us a tour of the planet with a large inflatable globe which then serves as a volleyball for audience members - not to be missed! And he does it all with the "common sense reasoning" you come to expect from the Pub Landlord.
Essentially Murray's creation remains hugely entertaining and this latest DVD is well worth a place in any stand-up comedy fan's collection. Anyone who has seen his other efforts may find some of the content slightly repetetive but it is worth witnessing the new material and the Landlord unleashed once again on a live audience. Furthermore the extras are well worth watching with yet another full length commentary available along with a question and answer session and a few other small snippets.
Definitely well worth your attention...
