I was put off getting this as I read Alan's review and thought maybe it would not be as good as other Lee Mack stuff I had seen. Maybe because I wasn't expecting to enjoy it quite as much, I loved it! I didn't think the swearing was too gratuitous at all.
As is commented below, we are all different and find different things funny. I have given away comedy DVDs before when someone I consider intellegent and funny just swears for the sake of it, but for £3 I thought this worth a punt and was glad I did.
I do agree with other comments - he didn't seem to get as into his stride as before but it is still a good gig.
Wierdly - some of the audience members had taken their kids with them! There was a 12 year old there amongst others. Why would you do that?? You know stand up involves swearing and reference to sexual stuff so we thought it bizaar someone would think their 12 year old was up to that level. Yup, they may well have heard all the same words before in the playground, but that doesn't mean this type of gig is child friendly. I wonder if this had a slight effect on the atmos.
Anyway - for £3 - go for it!
