Anytime you see stand-up comedian Jim Breuer take the stage, you know it's going to be a good time. It's not just a regular night of stand-up, it's a all-out crazy party! Jim Breuer takes no prisoners in this Comedy Central Special, "Jim Breuer: Hardcore."
You almost get exhausted by just watching him run around the stage like a madman. There is hardly a second that goes by where you're not laughing hysterically. In this special, Breuer talks about music, drugs, growing up, being a father, being married, and more. There's also a band that Jim travels around with when he performs, which really separates this comedy special from the rest.
The DVD has a few special features, such as never-aired performance segments and two segments from Jim's first Comedy Central performance. It's not a lot, but for a comedy special DVD, those are some really cool extras.
The only major drawback is the breaks in where the commercials would usually separate the show if you were watching it on cable. It kind of ruins the flow at times. You would really be getting into it all and then all of the sudden there's a little segment break that was intended for commercials. And there's A LOT of those breaks, so be warned. Still, it doesn't ruin the overall experience.
If you love comedy that's insane, different, unpredictable, and "drop-to-the-ground" funny, then Jim Breuer is your guy. "Jim Breuer: Hardcore" is a must-have for all comedy fans. A very high replay value on this one. Check it out as soon as you can.

I bought this DVD as an early Xmas gift for my boyfriend. I've never seen any of Jim's work but my boyfriend has. He said you'll be rolling on the floor when I watch it. As we watched it, I started getting stomach pains because I was laughing so hard. My favorite skits are the camel skit in the beginning and the "Extra" clip of 'My Dog Duffy.' Buy this DVD or VHS and you'll see what exactly I'm talking about.

As a huge AC/DC fan, I loved Jim's impression of the band! Hilarious,accurate and flattering all at once! I also love Jim's Jack Nicholson, I mean he does Jack better than Jack! To the T! His voices, facial expressions are fantastic as are all his stories. Jim,You Rock!!! and so does your back up band! A dvd that will get played over and over.

Jim Bruer is one of a kind when he is live. If you don't get to see him stand up, then BUY this DVD, even if you do see him stand up, buy this DVD. Jim keeps you laughing with his body language and physical appearance he displays when doing his stand up.
This DVD is a must have for any Jim Breur fan, no secong thought needed.

If you have cable, you probably have seen most of this on Comedy Central. For those cable-challenged, Jim Bruer is most visible from his stint on Saturday Night Live (yeah, he was "goatboy"). He was also stoner "Brian" in the movie Half Baked. Here is his standup (with a heavy metal band backup, thus the "hardcore"). He works the band in whenever he ends a good joke by breaking into some basic AC/DC cloned metal riff. Yeah, I don't get it either, but Bruer is generally funny. He's only got about three basic voices that are spun into whichever character he's trying to bring forth (which accentuate the core of any of his routines), but does so with conviction and keeps the crowd laughing. Much of his humor is embellished stories from Breur's youth, giving him the fan connection of, `Yeah, I probably partied with that guy in highschool'. A couple of added scenes deleted from the Comedy Central special are some bonus laughs. And if you are really into Jim Bruer, you'll dig the extra footage of his first Comedy Central appearances where you might recognize earlier, less polished versions of his later material.

The thing that sets Jim Breuer apart from most comedians today is simple. He's an honest to goodness great storyteller. His jokes are more than just mere setups and puchlines, they are an inside look into his life. When you listen to his standup, you feel as though you've known him for years. Hardcore is a hilarious routine that encapsulates all these elements. From his dead-on impressions of AC/DC, Joe Pesci and Jack Nicholson to imitating his mother talking to him about the type of people he hangs out with, Breuer executes his comedy at brilliant,hilarious lightning speed. He has a limitless amount of energy, his facial expressions are hilarious and his voices are great. This is a must own DVD for anyone who enjoys hilarious, honest comedy.

Jim Breuer might not be the most famous comedian out there, but he's still good. People might remember him from the movie Half Baked and from his sketches on Saturday Night Live. Think back to his Goat Man and Joe Pesci characters.

I saw "Jim Breuer: Hardcore" on TV many years ago and I never forgot it. It was the funniest show I'd seen in a long time. More recently, I finally had the funds to buy it, and it was a good decision.

At the beginning, he talks about war and Afghanistan. I didn't laugh much during that segment, but the entire rest of the DVD was great. My favorite part has to be his take on underage drinking.

Compared to Dane Cook, Breuer is a little less raunchy. Dane Cook has more of a direct approach, while Breuer tends to make things wonderfully goofy. It was a great purchase for me.

The DVD Extras also contain some old footage. I watched the bit about his dog Duffy and the problems that ensue when a dog ages. Toward the end of the segment, Breuer started dry-heaving to illustrate a point. It was fantastic material.

It's a good buy if you have some spare cash.
