Editorial Reviews

Don Friesen is an American stand-up comedian. Friesen is a relatively "clean" performer who uses self-deprecating humor to lampoon his life as a suburban husband and father. His act consists of satirical scenes that spoof his daily interactions with his wife, kids, tech support, creditors, and airline pilots, mixed in with impressions, improvisation and audience interaction.

We watched this video after watching "Ask Your Mom", and unfortunately, it was almost exactly the same, but the reason I'm rating this 5 stars is because this video has some outrageous footage that the the other video doesn't have. If I would have know, I would have just bought this one instead.

Absolutely dreadful. About as unfunny as one can get. HOWEVER, this IDENTICAL material is re-done in "Ask Your Mom" (on Netflix) which was absolutely hysterical. Maybe Don just had more polish by the time he did "Ask Your Mom." I put this one in the sellback bag and bought "Ask Your Mom" for my "keeper" collection.

Don't give up on Don. I've watched "Ask Your Mom" probably 10 times and absolutely crack up every time. Just skip the original version, which is this DVD.

This guy is very funny and a real pro. As impressive, he works clean and that's rare today when a lot of comics think the use of four letter words and graphic body part language is "cutting edge" but is really just a cheap shortcut.

This man is so funny. I watch his Prozac Pilot skit from time to time when I need a laugh. An iconic comedy skit. Should go down in the Hall of Fame. Price of the DVD is worth it just for that skit alone.

Sometimes comedians are funnier in "audio only", like how I discovered Don Friesen on Sirius Satellite radio.
I find his humor to be very funny- and "spot-on", and this video is a good delivery agent.
My favorite section is where he describes his youth riding in the back of his Dad's pickup. Will crack you up.

INEXPLICABLE is a terrific comedy concert DVD! Don Friesen, the comedian who tries to "explic" things to us, has developed an incredibly funny, relatible act that bears multiple viewings. Friesen excels as a verbal AND physical comedian, as well as does several dead-on impersonations - including George, Jerry, and Kramer in his own episode of SEINFELD.

His subject matter - finding self-depricating humor in the everyday experience and taking it to the furthest degree - recalls not only the work of Seinfeld himself, but also the great Bill Cosby. It's hilarious stuff, delivered with a precision and assurance not equaled by most of the current crop of stand-up comedians.

Another facet of Friesen's work is that it's fairly general-audience friendly - meaning he does hit a few PG-13 subjects now and again but does keep everything pretty clean. Not that comedy always has to be or even SHOULD always be "clean", but those of you out there who may be sensitive to more risque' material need not worry. Another thing the comedian has in common with Cosby.
