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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, mostly funny April 13, 2009
By Endie
Format:DVD
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must See! March 17, 2009
Format:DVD
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.

Russell Brand in New York City features seductive charm that is consistent throughout the show. He is tantalizingly seductive and I couldn't take my eyes off him!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars I love Russel Brand!! July 25, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I never got bored! I know you're really not supposed to mix current comedians and legendary comedians, but right now I love him almost as much as Eddie Izzard and the late king of irreverent comedy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not for the conservative viewer...
I admire this guy. He's obviously a raging liberal, and he's not afraid to offend you with it. Also, he's surprisingly intelligent.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sorry Russell, but new material needed
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. Read more
