Editorial Reviews

They say that laughter is the best medicine… well if that’s so then the doctors are in! You will howl with delight at the antics and observations of some of the finest comedians to ever tread upon a nightclub stage. From the legendary Bob Hope, to the wacky Uncle Miltie, to the wry but always on target Bob Newhart all of these performers have one thing in common… they are all Great Comedians. And, they’re all here on one DVD. The Great Comedians is a collection like no other. You be rolling on the floor as you watch the history of comedy unfold before your very eyes. The Great Comedians is one DVD no one should be without. And, we’re not joking.

Format: DVD
We remember an age by its comedians. The 60's and 70's gave us Billy Connolly, Monty Python, Woody Allen and Peter Cook - to name a small few. The 80's and 90's gave us Ben Elton and French and Saunders. Today we are being amused and entertained by great comedians such as Ricky Gervais (the Office) Sascha Baron Cohen (Ali G) Simon Roptell (Garter and Quail) and Larry David (Curb your Enthusiasm) to name a very brief few!

But when we turn back the clock fifty years, we see comedians that are figureheads of their time but still so close to the sensibilities of ours.

Classic TV Comedians feature Groucho Marx - one of the greatest comedians of all time. A man of today wedged into the past. Groucho is laughing at the era and getting away with it. We also see Uncle Miltie, Bob Hope and Abbott and Costello in skits that made them famous and skits that have sadly been forgotten.

A lot of the skits may have dated, but those that haven't are well worth the purchase price!

I bought this DVD for my parents for Christmas....they were "fed up" with the writer's strike on TV, so they will love this....they don't make 'em like this anymore!
