Editorial Reviews

Rita Rudner is world famous for her sweet-as-pie delivery of shrewdly hilarious observations about relationships, like the universal truth that breakups always occur before you have the chance to record all of your ex's albums. Don't miss the chance to see this award-winning comedian who famously mused, "When I meet a man I ask myself, 'Is this the man I want my children to spend their weekends with?'" in her new sold-out Vegas show.

It's been said there's... good jokes and clean jokes. Rita's routine is a rarity of comic gems without sexual innuendo or political shots, just keen and funny observations that anyone could relate to. So full of laughs, you'll want to view over and over.

Rita Rudner is someone who can make you laugh without even trying. She's not one of those comedians who constantly have to shout, or curse like a sailor. In fact her very light and easy to listen to voice is what makes her so hilarious. When she performs, she makes you feel like you are talking to an old friend who just happens to make you laugh by what they say. She talks about things that all of us can relate to. She mostly talks about female life and makes fun of the way men don't understand their wives. But she also makes fun of herself and defends the husbands as well. Most of the things that you find yourself laughing at are probably things you would unintentionally say to a friend and you would both have a good laugh over it.

I had the pleasure of seeing Rita's show in Las Vegas back in 2004. I also had the pleasure of meeting her afterwards. I was very pleased to hear some of the same jokes she used when I saw her live, to be put onto this dvd.

There's over 20 minutes of special features that were taken from Rita's short lived talk show "Ask Rita" where she went to special events like a Star Trek Convention, A Fishing Expo, A Ventriloquist Wedding, and she would interview people there and try some of the things out herself.

Some of my favorite quotes from the live show are:

"One time for my husbands birthday I decided to order a massage therapist to come to the house and give him a massage. Good idea right? I open the door and it's this 20 year old blond girl and she says in a perky voice 'Hi I'm here to give your husband a massage!' I looked at her and I said 'He's dead' "

"I try to do everything for my daughter. Once when she was 2. She brought home a helium balloon.

Rita Rudner's unusual reserved style, her observational genius and talent for exaggeration combine to make a hilarious hour of standup. Women especially will relate to this humor.

I saw bits from Rita years ago and she was a riot, this dvd made me think "I'm so glad I never paid to see her in Vegas" because I would've been thorough disappointed. Not to put her art down at all, I know Rita is funny as hell, but I wish I could find some of her older shows, she was funnier years ago.

Giovanni is one of the most talented composers of this age, he nearly makes the piano speak, his music has a unique signature. Each great piece he wrote has Giovanni's soul poured into it. This Las Vegas concert proves that Giovanni is also a great entertainer, and an outstanding performer.

I highly recommed this one for anyone who loves a good laugh. She is so funny and can be without being filled with filthy words. I wish I could have more DVDs of her she is so funny.

Rita has a wonderful gift of seeing everyday events.....with a twist! I'm no prude, but I find it VERY refreshing to watch this dvd because Rita doesn't use any of the common "Dirty Words" that are, well...everywhere today. She is so genuine and a total riot to watch! I love Kathy Griffin too. She is just 180 degrees from Ms. Rudner. Rita is a breath of fresh mountain air!
