Editorial Reviews

Funnyman Lavell Crawford is quickly climbing the comedic ranks, taking second place in NBC's Last Comic Standing and becoming a rising star. In "Can A Brother Get Some Love?" Lavell returns to the historic Orpheum Theatre in his hometown of St. Louis and brings down the house with a side-splitting performance. Taking on topics such as life in heaven, President Obama and a hilarious bit on a Mama's unconditional love and the universal rules of grocery shopping with her, Crawford will have you laughing out loud in this instant comedy classic.

DVD Extras:
Behind-the-Scenes Featurette "Pre-Concert St. Louis Sightseeing Tour"

I understand that comedy is subjective. Along with music, it is one of the harder categories of entertainment to judge because, oftentimes, it just comes down to a matter of taste. But comedy DVDs have an additional stigma that other DVD choices don't face. They have less replay value. If you are a fan of a particular comedian and you follow them, you have to expect that you will hear some material that they've used successfully in the past. The most common complaint I see leveled at comedy DVDs are that the jokes aren't fresh. That's right, folks--every time a comedian steps up to the stage, his entire act isn't going to be newly devised and original. And if you were going to tape a show for the general public to buy, wouldn't you use jokes and material that have proven popular and successful? I would!

That said, I'm a fan of Lavell Crawford. I knew what to expect going in--and while I think the man is generally hilarious, this concert was wildly uneven for my taste. I am undoubtedly in the minority--his St. Louis audience embraced the act wholeheartedly. Crawford is undeniably successful when spinning a yarn about his family or upbringing. When he talks about his mother and a simple trip to the grocery store, the routine soared with its simplicity and Crawford's spot-on impersonation. Other targets were a bit too expected. The mere mention of homosexuality is the ultimate punchline that recurs through the concert piece which seems somewhat unimaginative in this day and age. I don't ask for political correctness, I just look for something more creative from Crawford's humor. I had seem some of the routine in other incarnations--but it all fits together nicely here. A solid showcase for Crawford if not the best I've seen of him. About 3 1/2 stars. KGHarris, 8/11.

Lavell Crawford is my favorite comedian, he never dissapoints. I recommend this to anyone who is a true fan of comedy. I have seen this standup before, but wanted it for my own collection, because it is hilarious, especially the bit about not letting anyone in until his mother gets off work at 9. Truly a good time

Recently I watched Lavelle on the South Beach Comedy special. The special featured both Lavelle and Arnez J who were by far the strongest of the four. I couldn't decide on a favorite, Lavelle or Arnez J. I had to declare a tie. Now after seeing this DVD I have a new favorite stand up. I believe he is one of the funniest stand up comedians alive today. Lavell Crawford has been long since underrated but respected since he appeared on Def Comedy Jam. It's been a slow burn for him but now he finally did a full special and it's a great show. Good to see the very talented comic is now finally getting some love.
