Let me start by saying that I was and still am a huge fan of Michael McIntyre. He is a gifted comedian with inspirational talent. Based on Live and Laughing, early reviews of this DVD and his TV shows, I asked for this DVD for my birthday. Quite frankly, while some of the main feature is funny, this isn't the Michael McIntyre of old. Yes, the observational humour is there but part of his charm was that he didn't need swearing to make everyone laugh. Sadly, he seems to think that isn't the case anymore. And the problem is that the inclusion of swear words seems to be scripted - it isn't the natural Michael McIntyre. And if you don't agree, watch the bonus feature of the best bits from his Comedy Roadshow. Vintage McIntyre humour, eye wateringly funny and about the strongest expletive is "bloody hell".
