Jesus, your DVD is funny. I went all the way and paid the extra dough for the autographed version. That donut bit with both Kennedys, Martin Luther King Jr. and Charles Lindbergh (shortly after his son was found dead) was killing me. My god...
By the way, I forgot to mention that a friend and I saw The Aristocrats at the Crest Theater in Sacramento the night it came out. You've heard this from everybody I'm sure, but you and Saget put that film over the top. Bob...because other than comedians, nobody knows he is one of the filthiest comics out there. But I swear to you, I was crying by the time your bit was over. Especially the footage of the roast. Jesus. I don't know if you were in on the editing of that movie but you ougtta thank Penn big time because that film showed everybody that other comedians love your stuff. It was kind of like the film culminated with your gig. That's gotta be a huge ego boost if nothing else.
Thanks for making me laugh like hell.
A big fan,
p.s. I love your appearances on Howard. I heard you last week and it reminded me to go to your website and order the DVD. I'm begging you to do more obscure references when you're on.
If you're a fan of filthy humor, this DVD is a MUST HAVE! My personal favorite is about the guy who doesn't know if his wife has VD or TB...
And at $13.99...it's a steal. DO NOT MISS THIS ONE!
If there were other records of his stand-up currently available on the market, then I would lessen my rating to four stars, since his original work is generally more rewarding. Since it is all that is presently out there, it gets five. Unlike the pandering observational humor of Jerry Seinfeld or the family-friendly musings of Bill Cosby (both of whom get mocked fairly mercilessly here), "Dirty Jokes" is not for all tastes...thank God!
Unfortunately, this DVD is probably not the best choice for an introduction.
If you are familiar with his work (and you like it), then you'll enjoy the DVD. In the main feature of the DVD he is telling old, non-original dirty jokes before a packed house at Caroline's. It's a small (but venerable) stage and magnifies the idiosyncracries of a performer so be prepared. After getting over the initial shock of seeing him in makeup and hair colour, it was nice to see him in his element -- and his impressions of Bill Cosby, Alan King, and Jerry Seinfeld make me smile and take my mind off the punchlines I already know. As I watched the main DVD feature I really wanted him to ditch the material and go off on one of his extemporaneous sidebars (and he almost does a few times) -- that is why I like him so much and why he's known as a comedian's comedian.
For me, the price of the DVD was met with the extra material. This is where we get a glimpse of the true Gilbert Gottfried. Anyone who sees comedy on the Internet has probably seen his legendary appearance at the Hugh Hefner roast. It's a hysterical bit and shows Gilbert at his best. On the DVD extra material, we find a selection that leads us to believe we're going to see that bit, but instead we're treated to a lengthy (and funny) explanation as to why we will NOT see it. Don't be disappointed, you can poke around on the Internet and see it for free anyway.
By the way, when you see Gilbert staring at you on the DVD, does anyone else notice a disturbing resemblance to Humphrey Bogart?
