I thought these comics were hysterical. They share a lot about themselves and are very likeable on an individual basis. Dean's impersonation of George W. Bush is the best I have seen. I am still laughing out loud.

The only glitch is that the sound is not that good for the first comic, Ahmed Ahmed. But they seem to have worked out the bugs after him.

Ahmeds show could hardly be heard, sound all muffled. It got a little better half way threw. hardly made it worth the 24.95 paid for it. I would never recomend this.

I'm a fan of Axil of Evil Tour. So I had high hopes when I ordered this item. ABSOLUTE LET-DOWN!
No criticism of the comedians. Just the production values. I have to strain to hear what the performer is saying without any success. The video feels like they got their cousin to come in and shoot it like an amateur home video.
I blame the producers for trying to make a fast buck from the Axis of Evil fame.

It was funny. A lot of repeated material from the Axis of Evil comedy tour, but lots of new matierlal, especially the girl at the end. It was great - my only complaint was the sound quality. You had to turn up the volume very loud to hear some parts, and you still missed other parts because of the sound quality.

Axis of Comedy is a must for all cultures. I first heard it on KLOS the Mark and Bryan show doing an interview with one of the comedians. I had to pull over from laughing so hard and my eyes tearing. For the 15 minutes of interview and a few clips from their DVD, I immediatly found it on Amazon.com at Movielink at the best price in town. I ordered it the same day and received it in nine days. After watching it with my wife, I rolled up in stitches. For those of you who remember Don Rickels, he was a night club comedian who's jokes were most always picking on another race, culture, and religion (in a good and clean way). At the end of every performace, Don would appoligize to any and everyone who may have been offended by his humor. He said you have to laugh at yourself before you can laugh at each other. To this day in his 70's, he is still doing his act and he started in the 60's. It was his way of showing in times of war and racism, you can have fun making fun at others and relating this kind of humor to himself. This is what Axis of Comedy has done. Don was using his american Jewish culture and Axis is using their Arab, american humor to make the world see that they were not the cause of 911 as Don was not the cause of the Koren war. With comedy that works like this, I would hope it could spread around the world and maybe it could help even if in the smallest way, to lay down the anger everywhere, and use comedy to fight back. I am an american jew. When 911 happened, my thoughts of all Arab countries, people, (even americans with a dark tan), did leave me to wonder how much hate and anger that was stored up in me.Read more ›

I had seen the Axis of Evil Comedy Tour and the PBS program on Middle Eastern comedians and enjoyed these a lot, so, I decided to buy this DVD and enjoyed it very much. It was not as organized or as well recorded as the Axis of Evil Comedy Tour, but I enjoyed the comedic view of life from the eyes of the men and women who have been hit by 9/11 twice-as an American and as people of Middle Eastern descent! Having friends and family from that part of the earth myself, it's good to have a program using humor to get people in and out of the family talking openly about these issues. Really a great way to open your eyes and get to know "your world"!

I've seen Ahmed Ahmed live and on "The Axis of Evil" comedy tour DVD. He is a very good comedian, but the production of this DVD is just so bad. The audio is amaturish and the Videography is just terrible. I also didn't think that Ahmed was into this show either. He seemed slow and hesitant. I was expecting another exceptional show, but it just didn't materialize. The other two comedians were hampered by the same production flaws, this just isn't a good DVD.
