5.0 out of 5 stars Can I Finish? January 6, 2006
Format:DVD
Dana Carvey is one of the funniest and most talented comedians to have ever appeared on SNL. Although his film career did not truly take off, like many other SNL alumni to follow, he is among the finest when it comes to comedic material and timing.

Best known for his impressions, his "Best of" DVD is loaded with them. George Bush, Regis, Jimmy Stewart, Ross Perot, George Michael, Johnny Carson, etc... Some of our old favorites are also revisited: The Church Lady, Garth Algar, Hans and a Grumpy Old Man. Whichever is your favorite, you will enjoy them all. This is some of the best material Saturday Night Live has to offer, courtesy of their best impressionist to date.

Also included on the DVD you will find Carvey's original SNL audition tape footage and appearances on Jay Leno and Conan O'Brien.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funniest of the 'Best of SNL' so far January 27, 2005
By Bryan
Format:DVD
In my opinion, out of the three SNl Best Of's that i have watched so far (Will Ferrell volumes 1 and 2, and Chris Farley) this is the funniest and best yet. Dana Carvey is a brilliant impressionist and is able to transform his own natural voice into anything he wants to. Whether it be The Church Lady, Hans, Garth, George Bush...etc. The other two Best Of's that i watched actually left out some of the more funnier sketches. I believe the sketches compiled into this DVD are the funniest Dana Carvey did. Also, the extras are great too. You can watch Dana's original audition for SNL, watch many outtakes, a sketch that was actually completely cut from the actual show, and his appearances on Jay Leno and Conan O'Brien. Highly recommended for Dana Carvey fans, SNL fans, or just comedian fans in general...Expect to be laughing to the point of tears in this great DVD!

2.0 out of 5 stars DVD is another SNL cut up mess March 26, 2011
Format:DVD
Well, any SNL or Dana fan will be very disappointed in this DVD.

The Church Lady and the Church Chat bits. One of his classic characters right? NOT one entire sketch. They cut up several of them. Just ruined the whole thing.

Wayne's World, cut up.

Other sketches cut up.

This has been done on several of the SNL Best Of DVD's.

Very disappointing, a let down.

2.0 out of 5 stars Carvey Deserves a Better "Greatest Hits" Package April 29, 2013
Format:DVD
"Saturday Night Live" fans will be disappointed with this Not Ready for DVD release. The badly edited compilation offers few sketches in their entirety. Dana Carvey's versatile talents occasionally rise above the Veg-O-Matic presentation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very funny -- he's a talented man! February 10, 2011

Not a perfect DVD, but worth the $ I spent on it. Love Dana Carvey and think he's one of (if not the best) talent to come through the SNL revolving doors. Weird how they clipped apart some of the sketches, but I still enjoyed watching this!

Most of your favorites will appear, even some you forgot about like: "you like-a de' pepper?" An uproarious sketch I forgot all about. It's on of those sketches even they can't stop laughing at.

And, that is why you don't edit the sketch down to SECONDS long in some cases. SNL is funny because we love to watch the actors feed off of each other. Seeing a few minutes of Church Lady is like seeing none of it once I get mad at the TV for cutting the sketch short. And, some of them are literally seconds long. We need to see the whole sketch to watch all of the subtle looks and expressions that happened on the show then. At points I feel like I bought a DVD that is an infomercial for another seperate real DVD I can't buy. I'm not showing this to a room full of ADD patients, I am sitting back on my couch trying to enjoy Dana Carvey change the face of comedy and save SNL from near insignificance...following the years when Joe Piscopo was the anchor of the cast AKA the funniest of the non-funny. Don't play any of the sketch if you plan to edit out any of it, please!

You decide for yourself, knowing the above, if you think it is worth it. I am a massive Dana Carvey fan and would probably pay to see him read from the phonebook so it was worth it to me. But I am left with a sour taste in my mouth from the editing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dana Carvey October 6, 2013

Sure I liked the best of SNL with Dana Carvey although I have to admit that seems like some of the segments got chopped a little short.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the funniest & most versatile of SNL performers December 18, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The multi-talented comedian Dana Carvey gets his due here, and rightly so. During his seven-year stay (1986-1993), Carvey run the gamut from hilarious impersonations (Jimmy Stewart, George Bush, Sr., Ross Perot, Mickey Rooney) to memorable characters (Church Lady, The Pepper Guy, Massive Headwound Harry) to classic sketches (Church Lady, Hans & Franz, Wayne's World). A stand-up comedy veteran even before he arrived on SNL, there was almost nothing Carvey couldn't do on the show. And when he did leave, he took a trunk load of his material with him, leaving a gaping hole in the show's comedy format.
It was SNL's loss.
Happily, this collection really showcases some of Carvey's best work on the show. And as the Church Lady might say: "Well, Isn't THAT special??"
