I really enjoyed "Overnight Success". "Living the Dream" I could take or leave but I've enjoyed Dave whenever he's been on TV so at £3.99 I had no hesitation buying this.
It's not a terrible DVD - there are much worse comedians out there - but, after some good laughs at the start, this DVD tailed off really disappointingly. After about an hour, I hadn't laughed for 20 minutes so I turned off.
The problem for me was the material. A few of the gags were on the previous DVD. Others were predictable. The worst reminded me of Chubby Brown. Dave's stories of his hospital days were a bit boring. It was when he started moaning about paperwork and "political correctness" that I turned off - TELL US SOME JOKES, DAVE!
Like I say, it's not a terrible DVD. Dave's very personable, it's just the material that let him down, I think he ran out of good stuff on the first DVD.
