Stand Up Comedy DVDs
if you're feeling a sense of deja vu well then yes this has been covered a couple of times before, however instead of bumping an old thread which was more focused on the comedians themselves, i'm after recommendations for routines actually put out on dvd or whatever tangible visual-medium device you prefer.

of course i already have the staples like raw and delirious, chappelle's killin them softly and most of the russell peters dvds like outsourced.

hopefully any suggestions will actually include the title's name (an imdb link would be even better) and not just list their favourite stand ups.

Also anything by Billy Connolly, particularly his older shows. I want to track down the show (not sure if it's on DVD) in which he opens with a sketch about visiting Australia for the first time.

This decade hasnt been as wild, exciting or as decadent as the 90s...Instead weve seen rampant commercialism musically fed to a comfortably numb, dumbed down live-in-the-moment society...In many ways we've witnessed the fun of the 90s being replaced by the anger of this decade.

thanks for reading the o/p trza

tbh i've never found steve martin that funny. sometimes haven't even found his brand of comedy funny at all. so any suggestions on particular titles that may dissuade this thinking is welcome.

after watching live! in concert over the weekend, i must reaffirm my partiality for black comedians. for a routine aired in 1979 it has dated really well.

+1 For George Carlin: Pretty much anything will make you cack your dacks.

http://www.georgecarlin.com/store/store2.html

+1 For Ricky Gervais: Animals, and Politics. I didn`t really dig Fame though, thought it ordinary compared the other two.


+1 For Billy Connolly: There is a 7 DVD box set of his stuff that I have, can`t remember the name though. Not all of it is quality, but a fair chunk of it is. He is proper Mad in the best way possible.

so i watched this over the weekend too, and as an ensemble the tour was great. however it's quite topical and relied jokes as a result of racism arising from sep 11, terrorism, george bush. great to see middle eastern comics though, and their material didn't go for cheap laughs.

ok thanks for clearing that up dude.. i think i've seen the broadway one - he is srsly genius and the bit on the invention of golf made me soil my pants. will check out the earlier met routine for sure.

and katt williams - yay or nay?

also - carlin and hicks seem to be recommended all over the net but also seem a bit prolific - where do i start?

Bill Hicks - Revelations: Was pretty much his last and best DVD. Just full on nuts. Comes out on stage with Jimi Hendrix blasting. This is him at his peak,and easily his funniest. His earlier DVDs are good but you will only notice a massive difference in material between his first (Sane Man 89) and last (Revelations - 93).

Go for Revelations: its political, its satirical, its 45 pounds of Chinese fried gold.

Quote:

Bill Hicks

You never see a positive drug story on the news. They always have the same LSD story. You've all seen it: "Today a young man on acid...thought he could fly...jumped out of a building...what a tragedy!" What a dick. He's an idiot. If he thought he could fly why didn't he take off from the ground first? Check it out? You don't see geese lined up to catch elevators to fly south; they fly from the fucking ground. He's an idiot. He's dead. Good! We lost a moron. Fucking celebrate. There's one less moron in the world.

There's a Hicks dvd about that has 3 shows and a doco on it.

One night stand, Relentless and Revelations + Just a ride.

Get that.
The Sane Man dvd has some decent extras on it too, worth getting imo.

Also a Dylan Moran one on a similar tip, 'monster', 'like totally' and i think 'what it is' all in one.

Doesn't have his latest 'Yeah, Yeah' on there though


Also these:

- The Victor Borge classic collection

- Steve Hughes 'while it's still legal'
- Jim Jefferies 'Alcoholocoust' and 'I Swear to God'
^ there's an older one of his that i haven't seen too

And the George Carlin Boxset, think it's called 'All of it' or something..
