the best live comedian of our time
on 4 November 2007
for me, Ross Noble's format is totally flawed. i say this, mostly out of jealously than anything else. jealousy that there are people who have seen live shows that he has done that noone else will ever see. that is the nature of a comedian who can perform a whole tour and never repeat himself.
this is a man who can keep a room full of thousands of people all demanding comedy after paying good money with no material pre-prepared. an impossible task. not for ross noble. the format, though, annoyingly means it is never the same twice. should i win the lottery tommorow i would gladly go out and buy a front row ticket to every single show on a ross noble tour.
with aomeone like ricky gervais, you know you will get a solid written "script" of stand up comedy, excellent nontheless, but well rehersed. noble, however, is simply one of the funniest men alive. he can talk about any subject in such a way to bring out the comedy in it, his observations are top draw and his mind wonders in so many different and intreguing directions.
ross tries to make up for the fact his shows are never the same by adding as much footage as he can, the last release, randomist, set over 3 discs.
ross noble is a comedian to see live. his focus is much on the audience and it is much better if you are part of that audience, however it does mean you can go and see the live show AND buy the dvd without feeling shortchanged.
in terms of this dvd, again a great live show and great depth in excess footage, but i stress go and see him live! then buy all his dvds. a fantastic talent and a truly great comedian
