Editorial Reviews

British pop icon. Rock star. Ladies man. The unexpected star and scene-stealer of Forgetting Sarah Marshall and the controversial host of the 2008 VMA’s, Russell Brand makes his Comedy Central debut with Russell Brand in New York City. Detailing the difficulty of handling his newfound fame in America, recounting the time he meet the Queen and instructing women on how to approach him, Russell Brand proves he’s the hottest thing to come out of Britain since The Beatles.

Personally, I feel Russell is at his best when it's unscripted, off-the-cuff banter. He's very quick, and that atmosphere showcases his humor best. That said, I give this stand-up show a B+. Russell's ability to make mundane, everyday things hilarious is a quality that isn't unique or special (it's kind of a pre-requisite for calling yourself a comedian). What makes Russell special is the way he takes a situation or event, and instead of using the first or even second most likely word/phrase to describe it, he goes way down on the list to grab a term that you've probably only heard 3 times in your life, but fits perfectly. Again, simply doing this isn't earth-shattering, but Russell is so smart, and has so many random references in his mind, that you're likely to be caught off-guard by the way he describes things.
He's obviously a smart man (either the drugs didn't addle his brain much, or he started out Mensa-level), and his spontaneous comedy shows it better than his scripted comedy.

Russell Brand is simply the sharpest, most brilliant comedian on the scene presently. If you have trouble discerning British accents, you will get used to Brand's quickly, so don't let the negative comments of one reviewer deter you from this comedic masterwork. Understand that Brand plays a "rock star" character that is partly (not entirely) autobiographical -- hence the outlandish makeup, attire, and hairdo.

Watch Brand as the imaginary British rock star Aldous Snow in the hit Judd Apatow comedy Forgetting Sarah Marshall for a taste of what you can expect to enjoy when you watch his stand-up routine, which is the best I have seen in years. It is both outrageously crude and hilariously brilliant, which is a hard balance to reach! His humor features razor-sharp wordplay and the most fantastic, biting lines -- you will find yourself laughing out loud, spewing forth whatever beverage you happen to be consuming while watching his routine. Brand's routine is nearly flawless, smart, well-timed, and sharp: Brand spills anecdotes about his wild, drugged-out sex-addict (former?) life, shares inside details about the filming of Sarah Marshall that are wonderful, and recounts zingers about his (in)famous stint as the MTV video awards host that will make you wonder if people should have licenses in order to be able to send emails to celebrities.

You won't be disappointed!

saw this on comedy central about a week ago, and i was extremely impressed. for me, stand up comics are either hit or miss, and brand was definitely a hit. very cerebral, self-deprecating humor mixed with a beautiful face, haha, you can't lose!

I love comedy movies but I usually find it difficult to fully get into the whole "stand-up" part of most comedic actors' lives. This on the other hand blew me away! Some of his jokes had been told at the VMA's but they were very few. Most of his stuff is fresh and so unexpected! He's very impressive! He is excellent at imitating voices, etc. He's excellent at his visual comedy, too! I didn't stop laughing and I still do every time I watch it! And I've seen it countless times! Also, the extra material is really amusing as well. He's shown for example in NYC before the show talking to random people on the street, sometimes fans. He's just a flat out comedic guy. It's a big part of his personality and that shines through to people.

I recently "discovered" Russell Brand a couple of months ago, when I rented "Russell Brand in NYC". I was blown off the couch! He is smart, funny, razor-sharp, and FAST! I may be in the minority, but I happen to think he is extremely handsome too, which only added to the pleasure of seeing him in HD! I usually have a difficult time understanding many British accents. Not this time. After a few short minutes, I understood every single hilarious word. I saw his new movie, "Arthur" yesterday. He is brilliant and his timing is perfection. This DVD is a keeper. I will have it in my collection forever, and watch it frequently. ENJOY THIS AMAZING CRAZY MAN! There's no one quite like him!!!!!!

This is good stuff but a total rip-off if you have his other DVDs because virtually everything has been done before. I'm a huge RB fan but i feel very let down by this DVD. Russell and Matt need to get their heads down and come up with some new material. Just because this is in front of a New York audience doesn't make it worth shelling out for. The extras are funnier than the actual show.

Come on Russell, don't mug off your fans now. You were doing so well.

My husband and I have loved Russell Brand in everything we have seen, he is brilliant. I bought this DVD since it was a little earlier in his fame, and it did not disappoint. We could watch him every day!!!Funny, funny, funny all the way.

I really enjoyed Brand in FSM, and loved his autobio, but the material here is weak at best. I laughed only occasionally; the VMA extra on the dvd was the best part of the whole dvd, mainly for how shocked the audience was.

But the stand-up here is really very boring in general, unless you're one of the worshipping fans like those in the audience at this show, who seem there to watch his hairdo and laugh at any and every thing he says, funny or not. And most of it really isn't. Brand focuses on his favorite subject--himself--and it sounds like most of his best material was in the book and these are just leftover jokes.

I'd save my money and just watch his many clips on youtube, most of which are far funnier than the stuff here.

This material is barely three stars. For five stars, watch some of Brand's heroes do truly high-quality bits, like Bill Hicks or Carlin or Pryor. Judging from this show, RB has a long way to go to reach their level of intelligence in material. He's a very smart guy, no doubt, but the jokes here are not. They seem like outtakes from a much funnier show. He's funny to watch move around, but I watch comedy for the material first and foremost; cuteness and hair styles don't make weak jokes funnier.

But give him time: once he stops worshipping the ground he walks on and gets down to commenting intelligently on things other than himself, as on the VMA clip, he might just end up one of the best comedians of our time.

But being cute is not the same as being a great comic.
