I don't think it gets any better than Mitch Hedberg when it comes to stand up comedy. Not over the top, but over the top funny.

Mitch Hedberg had such great delivery and even though I've heard most if not all these jokes before, they still make me laugh - out loud - even if people are around who might not know what I'm laughing at.

I wanted it for my collection, however you can sift through all the youtube stuff and end up with the same video for free if you want to do the work.

So far Ive watched the first three seasons. I wasn't impressed. But thats just me. Though Im from the Dean Martin Roast era, I still laugh at today's witty comedy. Repeat...witty. I really haven't seen it here. There were a few that got some deep laughs from me, but not many. The rest were like watching a high school kid trying to hit serious major league pitching. Miserable. It felt the audience were just giving polite obligatory laughter. Slapstick, sarcasm, absurd observation of real events, twisting the news relating life events and Daria like delivery are main ingredients that make up stand-up work, one still has to use perfect delivery. If the home viewer doesn't find themselves belly laughing by the first commercial break, time to move on. Unlike the audience, I didn't directly pay to see this. But like its said, Comedy in the eyes of the beholder.

I only watched the Wanda Sykes portion of this show. I think it was interesting to watch because it was before she came out as a lesbian. She was married to a man at the time. She actually made some jokes that raised my eyebrows since she is now a lesbian. I didn't like this because it seemed hypocritical but I think Wanda Sykes is really funny. She is one of the few comedians who can make me really LOL (Laugh Out Loud). If you want to see what her comedy was like before she came out a lesbian or you are a Wanda Sykes fan, watch it. I am a huge fan of hers. I would like to see her in a live how. I am glad she is true to herself now and came out as a lesbian. I hope Wanda keeps on making me and others laugh for a long time to come.

We may be a little old for much of the modern comedy, but for us, there were few gems here. Many of the skits started well but lacked staying power.

Comedy Central always does a great job with their stand up comedians. Sure, there will be some comedians that you like more or less than others, but all of them will bring a smile to your face.
I appreciate that Comedy Central does keep the language controlled, especially since so many comedians seem to drop those bombs so frequently. The "bleeps" are annoying, but I would rather hear them than the swearing. I do wish they would keep out some of the indecent topics and references. I am not expecting wholesome, child-friendly comedy, but I think we should be able to expect to not be uncomfortable hearing it with friends in the room.
Overall, I find these quick little stand up sessions to be great entertainment while hanging out with friends or even waiting at the airport. Thanks Amazon for having these available.

I loved the humor of the stand-up comics featured here. I only got the free episode listed at the beginning of the season, but it probably gives a good idea of what is contained in the rest of the season. I have actually watched several episodes of this season when I was having a free 30-day trial membership in Amazon prime, which I eventually plan to become a paid subscriber to.

Over 2 hours of some of the funniest stand up routines you'll see, including the hilarious Patton Oswalt, and we rented it for only $3.00 using Amazons download. Cheaper than going to the movies and cheaper than paying for cable TV every month, you get only what you want and you have 30 days to watch it!

My only complaint.....put more stand up comedy on Amazon for downloads!
