Before I saw the video of the show at the Troubadour in LA I saw the documentary on the tour itself and I liked that even more, but it was the best documentary about comedy that I have seen.

This show had some not-as-funny moments, but was still great due to the presence of three tremendously talented comedians. (And I'm not including Patton Oswalt in that trio even though he is one of the best around.) The three are - Maria Bamford, Brian Posehn and Eugene Merman. At the time of the filming of this video maybe Merman wasn't well known - now, thanks to this, satellite radio and some more exposure elsewhere, he is nowhere near a secret. But he is brilliant - skewed ideas presented in a no-bs manner. Something that is difficult to pull off, but he does. He is even better today - that bit of nervousness he seems to show in this video doesn't seem to be as present.

Brian Posehn can stand there and he will make you laugh. (Maybe with a bit of a frightened element in the titters of those watching. But he knows that the appearance of a 6-7 metal-horror geek often produces trepidation and he takes that audience funk and runs with it. He banks on his polarizing appearance and makes a positive and funny impression.) Towering self-deprecation with some comedians seems a sign of mental imbalance (or the feigning of it), but with Brian it comes off as a game(life)-saver. And you can laugh just for that ability alone.

However Maria Bamford was the star of this video for me - she will go out on the edge without a hint of concern. Or if there is a concern it is merely the pretense of a smidgen of concern.

This was a great concept, organized by Patton Oswalt, who I think is hilarious. I'm also a big fan of some of the comedians who contribute, such as Davis Cross and Sarah Silverman. Unfortunately, Patton got drunk early on in this special, and I think his lack of focus proved contagious for the other comedians. There are certainly some good jokes to be had, but they're precious few for a show that runs well over two hours in length.

I guess I was disappointed because a typical stand up special only runs 45-10 minutes, and it's typically a nonstop bout of hilarity- it has a very high ratio of laughs per minute. With this show, it just seemed to drag with poor pacing, plenty of downtime, quite a bit of confusion, and what seemed to be a lack of enthusiasm from the comedians involved. David Cross even joked at length about how inconvenient it was to come out to LA simply to entertain the request of a friend (Patton)... but a lot of truth is said in jest, of course. The show also suffers from some repeated material that has been used in other specials. Nonetheless, this was a valiant effort by Patton, and at the very least, you can see some backstage interactions among the comedians as they drink beer and eat cookies shaped like the Star of David.

Waste of time and money. No one laughed...we were in the right mood but the overall material was contrived or just plan stupid.
