5.0 out of 5 stars not his best but better than the rest!!! August 31, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Just finished this DVD and we all enjoyed it very much. I still rank his first "I walked on the moon" as the best...and probably his second "standing up" slightly over this as it does have a 30 minute special as a bonus feature as well as encores. The Epitome Of Hyperbole is not a bad third place but at a scant 42 minutes seems to end waaaay too early. The bonus encore is also very brief (about 4 minutes) and the making of is fun but not really something you want to watch again and again. So...most of my complaining is that I want more of this guy....he's just that good, original and works clean (which I don't demand but he is different by that mere fact).

Brian's expressions and physical humor is almost as funny as his stories and bits..which I don't want to give away...but lets just say that if you own the other two DVDs ....there isn't overlap of ...bottom really need ALL THREE! his first one is available on his an hour of gut busting stories from the classic "Say 8" to the title track.

I've seen him in concert and we just got tickets to see him in October...he is worth it live or on DVD...and his reputation and drawing power is completely due to word of mouth and talent....NOT the hype of NON funny "celebs" like Dane Cook....

Highly Recommended....!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny (as expected) -- but far too short! September 10, 2008
I agree with the earlier comment that this is the weaker of Brian's three DVD releases. But all things are relative - and this is still a very enjoyable, though brief, performance. If I had greater expectations, it was because I just saw Brian perform live a week ago -- and he has a lot of hilarious new material that did not appear in this DVD (all the more reason to catch his live show if you can!).
Brian's warm, average-joe delivery style is what makes him so likeable. His observations on everyday life are keen and hilarious. Brian's topics on this DVD include: realistic cooking shows ("Tune in tomorrow when after 45 minutes of preparation, I realized I don't have any eggs", Pluto getting kicked out of the group of planets ("You're no longer a planet. The best we can figure is, you're just a big nothing"), walking up to strangers at parties ("I don't know what you're talking about. May I still stand here?"), the crimes of manslaughter versus loitering, game show contestants, etc.

At 40 minutes in length - with just 4 minutes of encore - this DVD is much too short. I'm waiting to see the other half of his show that was edited out on this DVD. But, it's still a fun 40 minutes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brian Regan: Excellence In Comedy July 22, 2010
I have seen Brian Regan live and seen his DVD's several times. Brian is always excellent at observational humor, and has the physical gestures and delivery needed to make the jokes work perfectly. Although I think this is not Brian's best DVD, it's still worth seeing (several times). I especially liked the routines about approaching strangers at parties and about Pluto's removal from the list of planets.

I was on the fence for rating this DVD. The performance warrants a five star rating, but the show is only 42 minutes long, and the encore is much shorter than his standard (it's only four minutes long, and isn't especially strong, but was essentially an "audience request" format). "The Backstage Story" is interesting, and gives a lot of information of how a show of this scale is made, and I recommend watching it. I settled on four stars because there are better and longer Regan shows on DVD (I'm especially fond of "Standing Up").

Brian Regan is one of the funniest (and cleanest) comedians working today, and I highly recommend all his material, and especially recommend catching his live act if you are able to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brian Regan: The Epitome of Hyperbole September 16, 2009
Absolutely the funniest man alive! King of clean humor, and every time I watch it I find it funnier than the time before. His physical humor adds so much, although I have this one on CD as well and he still cracks me up!

4.0 out of 5 stars If There's Anybody Funnier Than Brian Regan . . . August 11, 2009
If there's anybody funnier than Brian Regan, you'll have to forgive me for not catching the name -- I was howling too loud at Brian Regan.
This, the astude film noir buff will know, is a take-off on a line of Sideny Falco
as played by Tony Curtis in "Sweet Smell of Success."
I discovered Brian at the Improv in D.C. many, many years ago. I couldn't believe how funny he was. Every time he played that club, I went and took friends.
In addition to enjoying Brian again and again, I liked observing just how quickly he got people to laughing with tears rolling down their cheeks -- usually in under two minutes. Amazing!
If you compare, as some commenters have, this DVD program to previous ones, OK,
it may not be up to that level. BUT...if you compare Brian to the foul-mouthed, put-down, nothing-sacred comics out there, he is a refreshing feast of entertainment.
So, you get the idea I recommend this and other CDs and DVDs of Brian Regan? You bet! So thanks for "listening" and ... "take luck."

Brian Regan is very hard to watch. Your cheeks get cramped from laughing and your lungs get congested to the point you have to turn him off for a few minutes to catch your breath.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clean, fun humor
One of the things that I like about Regan is that he works clean and still manages to be very funny. He's still at the top of his game.
