As "bonus features" the DVD also has Anthony's performances from the three Comedy Central roasts (Charlie Sheen, Donald Trump, and Roseanne Barr).
A no-brainer purchase.
This special, Coligula, is the funniest stand-up I have ever seen since the days of Eddie Murphy "Delirious" and "RAW". Back then it was pretty racy but mild and still far more offensive by today's standards. Rough to watch now but I digress. Caligula is a masterpiece of shock, awe and guilt for laughing at something so delightfully inappropriate. If you have a GREAT sense of humor and find the madness of the world to be just funny enough to get through the darkness of it, this stand-up is for you. If you are easily offended and think that your somber silence contributes to the healing of tragedy and prevents terrible people from existing in this world, then you won't really get it. Myself, I'll watch it many more times and laugh away the sadness of each topic.
Jesselnik is the master of taking you to a dark place, and then letting you know just how much darker it could be - by going there next.
His crafty setups often leave you expecting one thing and then getting something even darker than where you imagined you'd end up.
A total black comedy treat!
If you are squeamish, or really hate dead baby jokes, you should probably steer clear but you'll be missing out on a uproarious trip to the darkside of comedy.
If you 'pass the test' be sure to see his other show: "Thoughts and Prayers" too.
