-Astronaut Jones (guests Nelly, Garrett Moris and Brittany Murphey--again, I would've preferred the one with cast member Maya Ruldolph, when he tells her he wants to get her pregnant!Read more ›
The dvd focuses mostly on Tracy's most popular characters, but it's obvious that the producers just decided to toss on a random sketch featuring this character rather than watching the sketches again and listening to the audience reaction and then deciding which appearance was the best. This means that while the Brian Fellow and Astronaut Jones sketches (to name a few) are funny but not necessarilly their best sketches (thogh I did laugh a lot when the porcupine wanted to show Brian Fellow his weener).
The only real laugh - out - loud sketch on the dvd is the "Hardball" bit with Tracy as Harry Belafonte. There are also a lot of moments missing. For example, during his early years, he did a very funny Mike Tyson impression that I thought was hysterical. But it's not included. Also, in his last season, he often did an Al Sharpton bit on "Hardball" that was very funny. But again, it's been excluded. But the most glaring omission of all is what has been judged as Tracy's breakthrough sketch. How the heck could they leave off the "Behind The Music" sketch with Fat Albert". That's like leaving "Wayne's World" off "The Best Of Mike Myers"!
What's sad about this dvd is that Tracy is really a hilarious talent. I watched the Conan O'Brian interviews and he's very funny. Unfortunately, this dvd does not do him justice. I hope that they will release a volume 2 of his best work.
