release day delivery. Release day, and my birthday were the same. Only Doug's autograph
could have made it any better (or seeing his show in person).
Doug is just as hilarious in Norway as he is in the United States.
During his introduction, Doug talks about all of the camera people going insane
throughout the show. And he's right. Way too many cameras, too many different angles.
I have no problems with angle shift during a stand up show, but this was too much.
At one point during the show, one camera they used wasn't focused very well, and the
color was terrible. At around 28:15 or so. Lasted for a few minutes.
One camera person kept getting way to close to both the audience and Stanhope.
Part of a comedy show on DVD is the audience, and their reaction to the show.
I don't know what this person was thinking during the show, but he was all over the place.
I highly recommend this product. DVD and CD for one price.
I normally don't buy comedy albums but the sample clips of this one were so gut busting that I had to give it a try. I spent almost an hour in my car, which I should have been spending doing something else, just sitting and listening to this on my cell phone. After wasting all the time I could there were still a couple of segments I hadn't heard. This album gives you your money's worth, that's for sure.
The great thing about this show was that it wasn't just a set of jokes that he could have told anywhere on his tour, he actually customized the show for his audience. It's a rare showman that can pull that off. The jokes about Norway and Oslo are universal though, so they don't ruin the show. That kind of talent is rare, and that's why you should buy this album.
...and its for this reason that this has become my most favorite standup of all time.
This is the best standup comedy CD/DVD one could ever own or even hope for. No lie, I truely look at things in a different light now that I've seen this. I no longer get intimidated by extremely gorgeous women. Now I just think to myself... BLORT!!! Baaaahahahahahahahahaha!!!! BLORT!
You have to own this. This is something that won't grow old quick or loose its newness or luster. It will always be ball-bouncingly funny.
Thanks Doug!... and come to the Improv in Addison, TX!

He's awesome great to have on the Ipod when your having a bad day or to prevent one.Published on July 26, 2014 by Douglas Inshetski
But this was a very odd special for even him. Didn't seem planned at all, like he was in the crowd and decided to wing it at someone else's gig.Published on October 14, 2013 by Tony Nelson
I think that the title here says it all. Doug Stanhope is the funniest guy on the planet and is my hero.Published on May 5, 2013 by willdogg818
