4.0 out of 5 stars Drop Dead Hilarious
Those use to Alex's persona on Mad Tv are in for a shock,while she is just as funny,if not more so...She has one hell of a foul mouth.So if you're easily offended or can't stand swearing,avoid this dvd.Otherwise you're gonna have a great belly laughing time at this.

Alex does do a couple of impersonations,my highlight being her impersonation of Renee Zellweger...

Borstein needs to stick with her voice-over work (where she is truly gifted) until she can come up with a performance better than this. She relies too much on material she hasnt even written (Hollywood casting breakdowns) to get the laughs and to make a point. A point which we all know...Hollywood has set an ideal for women that no one can live up to. The most interesting...

This review is from: Alex Borstein: Drop Dead Gorgeous in a Down-to-Earth Bombshell Sort of Way (DVD)
Borstein needs to stick with her voice-over work (where she is truly gifted) until she can come up with a performance better than this. She relies too much on material she hasnt even written (Hollywood casting breakdowns) to get the laughs and to make a point. A point which we all know...Hollywood has set an ideal for women that no one can live up to. The most interesting part of the DVD is a behind-the scenes look at the offices of Family Guy. If you are looking for stand-up from a women's point of view that is much more insightful and actually delivers the laughs check out Margaret Cho.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious!, November 7, 2006
This review is from: Alex Borstein: Drop Dead Gorgeous in a Down-to-Earth Bombshell Sort of Way (DVD)
I got the chance to preview Alex Borstein's new stand-up act Drop Dead

Gorgeous and it's nothing short of drop dead hilarious. She is a

natural on stage who is as funny as she is original. Her material is

new, fresh, genuinely funny, and while it's plenty raunchy, she doesn't

rely on that for laughs. It's great to get to see Alex in action, in

real life as opposed to her animated work as Lois on Family Guy.

She imitates, she sings, she dances (some would call that dancing

others....well) and everyone is a potential target. A MUST buy for all

Family Guy and Borstein fans. And if you're not yet a Borstein fan,

you're about to be...

5.0 out of 5 stars Drop Dead if you don't get it, November 26, 2006
This review is from: Alex Borstein: Drop Dead Gorgeous in a Down-to-Earth Bombshell Sort of Way (DVD)
Alex is a very funny lady. She keeps you laughing and intrigued from beginning all the way to the extras. Get a couple DVD's for your friends. It's nice to have a funny lady around.

This review is from: Alex Borstein: Drop Dead Gorgeous in a Down-to-Earth Bombshell Sort of Way (DVD)
Sharply written and delivered one-woman show that goes right after Hollywood and all of its resident alien creatures and craziness.
