His degree of pathos, humor and bathos is hard to understand. First the guy is a genius, but he's a man of the people, he's dirty and works "blue" but he is never hurtful to minorities or women.
May has a lot of fast trigger stuff, and he is very very "Hip" and I mean hat in the old school senses of the word, but what got me the most was when he almost had a nervous breakdown when his dad died. I knew about him long before Last Comic Standing. There are a lot of Fat comics out there but if you will notice May plays down the fat stuff and goes for the real social insights. Hope his health is OK.

Not only is Ralphie funny, he's smart too! His thoughts may be radical, but they are probably something we really need to consider.

Ralphie is a funny man, and an intelligent speaker, but seems to have his priorities confused in this DVD. People go to a stand-up show, or buy a comedy DVD to laugh, not get self help or a motivational speech. The middle 50% of this DVD would have gone over GREAT at a college orientation. It was honest, insightful, and all-round good advice. It did not belong in a comedy routine though, and seriously killed the tempo of the show. You could have heard a pin drop in my living room for a solid 30 minutes there.

Ralphie May is a terrific person with a great outlook on life and just keeps it real. He pulls no punches and tells it like it is no matter who you are or where you are from. He disarms hurtful sterotypes with humor and bold face honesty that is drop dead hilarious. Anyone who thinks we should live in a PC world can just stick it in their ear because Ralphie May is going to blow thier heads off.

I love Ralphie but this comedy set was a bit preachy for my liking. There were definitely some funny parts but half way through I was getting bored and the laughs were getting fewer and farther between. Not Ralphie's best.

It seems hard to believe it has been almost ten years since Ralphie May appeared on the first season of NBC's "Last Comic Standing." While I wasn't always certain that I liked him (he and the other cool kid comedians ganged up on the show's eventual winner), I must say that I always found him quite funny and distinctive. After successful shows in 2006, 2007, and 2008 (Girth of a Nation, Bangin' With Ralphie May, and Austin-Tatious are all on DVD as well as an earlier performance in 2004's Just Correct), he hasn't made a Comedy Central special since. Well, I'm glad to see him back with "Too Big to Ignore", a lively set filmed before an enthusiastic crowd in Milwaukee's Pabst Theater. May, now older and more subdued, is still content to play the mischievous imp. He is the master at taking mundane situations and somehow rendering them uncomfortably filthy. One of this set's highlights has May and his young child riding a mall elevator and this conventional set-up leads to several squirm inducing moments.

For fans of May, this is certainly a welcome return. Setting the perfect tone, May skewers such unlikely targets as Chaz Bono (inspired) and even innocent little Dora the Explorer (the argument has surprising merit). The jokes are rapid fire and build in intensity. It's an incredibly solid set. Material-wise, it may be one of his strongest concerts, but I did like his new perspective as a husband and a father. As much as I enjoyed the actual comedy, however, May seemed a little more disconnected than usual. Instead of grooving with the audience, he would recite his jokes somewhere into space. Sometimes he cracked himself up, but the show really seemed to lack any tangible audience interaction. Still, a funny concert performer by a talented comedian. If you're a fan, there are worse things than having Ralphie May back after a four year hiatus! KGHarris, 3/12.

Funny guy. 1/2 way he gets a little preachy (you're speaking to the choir sir) which throws his rhythm off course IMHO. Certainly not the funniest guy out there (who's giving this guy 5-stars... really? This is as funny as it gets!? Uh. Yeah, I don't think so.).

Funny if you want to hear another guy rail against the clear idiocy running through America's veins but he doesn't really differentiate himself from the standard comedy pack outside the fact that he's the only one 'making Jews.'
