Just finished this DVD and we all enjoyed it very much. I still rank his first "I walked on the moon" as the best...and probably his second "standing up" slightly over this as it does have a 30 minute special as a bonus feature as well as encores. The Epitome Of Hyperbole is not a bad third place but at a scant 42 minutes seems to end waaaay too early. The bonus encore is also very brief (about 4 minutes) and the making of is fun but not really something you want to watch again and again. So...most of my complaining is that I want more of this guy....he's just that good, original and works clean (which I don't demand but he is different by that mere fact).

Brian's expressions and physical humor is almost as funny as his stories and bits..which I don't want to give away...but lets just say that if you own the other two DVDs ....there isn't overlap of bits...so ...bottom line..you really need ALL THREE! his first one is available on his site...is an hour of gut busting stories from the classic "Say 8" to the title track.

I've seen him in concert and we just got tickets to see him in October...he is worth it live or on DVD...and his reputation and drawing power is completely due to word of mouth and talent....NOT the hype of NON funny "celebs" like Dane Cook....

Highly Recommended....!!!

I agree with the earlier comment that this is the weaker of Brian's three DVD releases. But all things are relative - and this is still a very enjoyable, though brief, performance. If I had greater expectations, it was because I just saw Brian perform live a week ago -- and he has a lot of hilarious new material that did not appear in this DVD (all the more reason to catch his live show if you can!).
Brian's warm, average-joe delivery style is what makes him so likeable. His observations on everyday life are keen and hilarious. Brian's topics on this DVD include: realistic cooking shows ("Tune in tomorrow when after 45 minutes of preparation, I realized I don't have any eggs", Pluto getting kicked out of the group of planets ("You're no longer a planet. The best we can figure is, you're just a big nothing"), walking up to strangers at parties ("I don't know what you're talking about. May I still stand here?"), the crimes of manslaughter versus loitering, game show contestants, etc.

At 40 minutes in length - with just 4 minutes of encore - this DVD is much too short. I'm waiting to see the other half of his show that was edited out on this DVD. But, it's still a fun 40 minutes.

Finally, a comedian who brings funny to everyday life, without needing to resort to constant profanity and lewd humor. A comedian that will have you and the whole family laughing. Epitome of Hyperbole is a great one of his sets.

Brian Regan has really grown on me over the years. He has a goofy manner and some silly physical moves that seemed dopey to me at first ... but once you watch enough of him you realize that's a cover for a very intelligent wit and some clever social commentary. Like Jim Gaffigan, his comedy is clean and family-friendly, proving that sharp comedy doesn't always require R-rated subject matter.

Brian never gets old. He has hilarious takes on current events and childhood experiences he experienced. He's even funnier in person. The audience is filled with super fans who travel the country to see his shows. They know his routines by heart and are a great group of folks. This is close to being there.

Genius. Very clean, very physical, full of expression comic that seems to be a mix of Kramer of Seinfeld and Jim Carey! Search the net for his "donut lady" routine for a small slice of his comic genius.

By far, my favorite comedian. His jokes are hilarious, his delivery is original and his facial expressions are to die for! The best part is that I can laugh until I cry, along with my children. Such a funny comedian that is okay for the kids too...that doesn't happen often!

I have seen Brian Regan live and seen his DVD's several times. Brian is always excellent at observational humor, and has the physical gestures and delivery needed to make the jokes work perfectly. Although I think this is not Brian's best DVD, it's still worth seeing (several times). I especially liked the routines about approaching strangers at parties and about Pluto's removal from the list of planets.

I was on the fence for rating this DVD. The performance warrants a five star rating, but the show is only 42 minutes long, and the encore is much shorter than his standard (it's only four minutes long, and isn't especially strong, but was essentially an "audience request" format). "The Backstage Story" is interesting, and gives a lot of information of how a show of this scale is made, and I recommend watching it. I settled on four stars because there are better and longer Regan shows on DVD (I'm especially fond of "Standing Up").

Brian Regan is one of the funniest (and cleanest) comedians working today, and I highly recommend all his material, and especially recommend catching his live act if you are able to.
