- Q & A with Jerry Seinfeld
Top Customer Reviews
2. How often do you laugh until your belly hurts?
Or on the flip side:
3. How many times do you watch comedy routines and have to listen to "f" this and "f" that?
4. How often do you turn the TV off or feel offended by the content of the comedy routine?
If you want all of 1 & 2 and none of 3& 4, then this is the video to get! So often I'm turned off by comedians who focus on sex and language to get attention. Jerry Seinfeld needs only take real-life, everyday experiences and twist them into comedy genius as only he can. It didn't occur to me that grocery shopping, airline travel, and Halloween would be hilarious subjects. But Seinfeld makes it work. I've watched it many times already and plan to watch it many times more!
It really doesn't matter that much if you've already heard these jokes along the way-who hasn't heard the infomercial/Ginsu knife bit before? Seinfeld's delivery makes you want to laugh no matter what. I was a little surprised at the end, though. I was expecting a big joke to end the night with, and then out of the blue Seinfeld thanked the audience and wandered offstage. Naturally, he does make an encore appearance, this type agreeing to answer questions hurled at him from the audience.Read more ›
This is the last time that Seinfeld performs his most-known material. He talks about air travel, cab drivers, candy, doctors and waiting rooms, McDonald's, airport/airplane bathrooms, and so much more. This is the golden material that made Seinfeld's career, and he appropriately performs them for the last time.
As I said in the beginning of the review, there's literally nobody in the business that could ever duplicate Jerry's material and get the same response from it. The material was made for Seinfeld, and that's why it works so well. He's able to point out some of the most irrelevant or unnoticeable things in society and bring them into the spotlight. Subtlety plays a major role in Jerry's performances.
The DVD also includes a bio on Jerry Seinfeld and a "Q&A" segment that was never aired. The picture quality looks exceptionally good and the DVD does it justice. Running time of the live performance is around 75 minutes.
"I'm Telling You for the Last Time" is an amazing performance by an amazing comic. Although it is sad to see him retire the material that made his career, it's nice to see that he is moving on and working on new bits. He knows when to move on and not just build a career around old material for your whole life. I admire that most about him. This is a great comedy performance that should not be missed by any fan of Seinfeld's or any fan of comedy. It is a great experience.
