Product Description

"Tony Robinson is a god of history" —Eddie Izzard

One of the UK’s most beloved performers, Tony Robinson has forged a career from making history humorous. He first shot to fame as the peasant simpleton Baldrick in the legendary comedy series Blackadder. Then came slightly more scholarly but highly entertaining efforts like the archaeology show Time Team and the documentary series The Worst Jobs in History. Using Baldrick—he of the "cunning plan"—as a reference point, Robinson careens through the story of his life and the course of history in a side-splitting one-man stage show.

Packed full of hilarious tales, tender family stories, and amusing historical anecdotes championing the little guy, this smash hit performance sold out venues throughout the UK. It’s a riotous, rollicking, helter-skelter ride, from Robinson’s childhood debut as the Artful Dodger to Blackadder and beyond.

DVD SPECIAL FEATURES: Q & A session with Tony Robinson, containing his favorite Blackadder moments and the possible future of the series, and "Any Old Iron" sing-along.

Tony Robinson's Cunning Night Out! is the uproariously funny DVD of a stand-up comedy performance by British television actor Tony Robinson, perhaps best known for his role of Baldrick in the hilarious British sitcom "Black Adder", and his infamous refrain, "I have a cunning plan!" Tony Robinson gives the snigger-inducing scoop on everything from the secrets hidden within common surnames (many last names indicate that our ancestors worked horrible jobs, such as "Kellogg", which can be traced back to hog butchering), to the creation of the "Maid Marian" television show (ostensibly a children's program but so popular that one college closed its bar when "Maid Marian" aired), to when Robinson worked with John Wayne and was literally pushed into a river of liquid filth as part of the shoot. Fans of "Black Adder" will not be disappointed; he gives plenty of hysterical anecdotes from the series, including one particularly raunchy "Black Adder" joke that never aired (because the actress was too mortified and refused to say the line)! Truly a laugh-out-loud viewing experience, seasoned with just a dash of history for personal enrichment, highly recommended for comedy lovers everywhere and a "must-have" for "Black Adder" fans. 83 minutes, widescreen, color.

It was interesting to see "Baldrick" of the Blackadder series as himself. He displays his fine acting ability and intelligence. I laughed out loud several times. Of course, it's tough to top the role he played in Blackadder, but it's worthwhile to see him being Tony Robinson.

I usually love any Tony Robinson project. I've read his books, watched various programs he has hosted or starred in and always found him funny and entertaining, but this video fell flat. It had moments of humor and some interesting history, but I found myself regretting the purchase almost immediately. I think his talent and humor is better expressed in documentaries and comedies, but not stand up. I would have been much more entertained watching Black Adder or Time Team. I just don't think stand up comedy is his forte.

Tony Robinson's Cunning Night out is not what I expected, I assumed he would tell jokes and perhaps bring up a few "Blackadder" stories but instead, I got to learn a little about the man who made Baldrick so interesting. First of all, if you are expecting a laugh riot, this is not your cup of tea. I understand Americans have a different sense of humor so if you are expecting something like that, move on.

Tony starts off by speaking about his upbringing and continues on to his career and his daughter's writings, which is interesting and you can see the pride in his eyes as he retales one of her stories and he closes with a few Blackadder stories to round out the evening. There are some pictures in the background to augment his stories and his Blackadder stories do capture your attention. I did find out that Tony hosted a very interesting show called "The Worst Jobs in History" which is fascinating by watching this video.

The programs is fun and entertaining, this is basically a mini biographical stand up show and it's a great companion to the Blackadder series or for Tony Robinson fans in general.

Standup ain't your forte.Maybe if you'd done more stories & outtakes from 'Blackadder' this vid would be worth it but 80% of what you do is cuss & you just ain't funny.Stick to comedic roles.
Save your money for the Blackadder collection.
