5.0 out of 5 stars Best possible bang for your comedy dollar February 25, 2008
Format:DVD
This 2 DVD set clocks in at 4 and a half hours. The first DVD features the best moments from the last twenty years of Comic Relief. There are not enough superlatives for this release. If there is a comic you like, that comic is here:

Disappointing, and it didn't have to be. Collecting some of the best acts from previous years of Comic Relief should have been done on four or five discs, instead of one. What we get here are little sound bites of comedians in performance, where in fact such performances are best seen as a full set. Otherwise it just comes across as a highlight reel, with punchline after punchline. This doesn't serve standup comedy particularly well. On the other hand, of course, at least if you don't care for a specific act, it doesn't take long until the next clip is running. The second disc runs the complete Comic Relief show after Hurricane Katrina. Some of the acts are very good- Lewis Black gives by far the best performance of the lot- and others, not so good. It depends on the personal preference of the viewer. Two general observations though: Ray Romano on the second disc falls completely flat in his routine; I could never understand why anyone found him amusing. And Whoopi Goldberg isn't as funny as she seems to think she is, particularly these days.
