4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not his best, 8 Jan. 2011
By 
This review is from: Dara O Briain - This Is the Show [Live] [DVD] (DVD)
Without doubt Dara O Briain is the funniest and most consistently funny comedians I have ever seen. Previous material of his I have seen has been brilliant, especially the seamless switches between audience and material. This how feels a lot more personal, as O Briain opens up a little more to us, talking about his own life rather than more abstract observations. However, the audience material doesn't quite work. Certainly there are flashes, and I would argue that he didn't have a lot to work with compared with other shows I have seen, and unfortunately this let's the show down. It never quite feels like it takes off.
Undoubtedly one of the all time greats, this is really good, but not his best. Still a good buy though :)

I agree with this review massively - the audience's stories really didn't help him at all. he tried his best to get them going, but the saving lives stories were just a little flat, and he had to a lot of work to make the audience funny, when usually they've got great material for him already. Not quite as natural as the other two dvds, for sure. but still brilliant!
