From touring with Kevin Hart, winning BET awards, and starring on television, Tony Roberts has done it all in comedy. In his brand-new stand-up film, you'll hear his hilarious takes on Eddie Murphy, parenting, sex and everything in between.
Tony Roberts had a very rough time getting started in this special. Dedicating the show to Eddie Murphy and then leaving the stage to change 10 minutes into the show. Seemed to lack focus and relied heavily on cultural differences in order to get laughs. Heavy use of cuss words and lack of shared experience made this show seem boring and lack material. Did not make it past the 20 minute mark.
First off, I am a Tony Roberts fan. I've been following him since his Def Comedy Jam days (and have even forgiven him for "Mr. Box Office"). I picked up his last DVD "Wired" and laughed...hard. So I was more than ready to give his latest release a try. It runs about an hour. I mention this because he loses steam after about 20 minutes. Roberts has always been a very physical comedian, always putting so much energy into his acts (knocking over mic stands, smacking stools with towels, etc.). But here he begins to show wear at about the 20 minute mark and thus the rest of the performance lacks any real kick after this as a result. Immediate problem: His performance was not paced (as which happens with so many acts). His game went from "A" for the first 15 minutes to "C-" at best as he wraps up. But this release did do something for me: It pushed me to dust off some old Def Comedy Jam DVDs.
I have had the pleasure of working with many Stand Up Comics but usually dont have much time to enjoy Anything that they do but this guy, this guy caught my attention. His delivery was just for me. He is seriously funny and he's got me right in my funny place!!!
Tony Roberts is a decently funny comedian but this comedy tape is a lack luster of barely humorous jokes! His catch phrases and timing were badly off not to mention a poor effort at giving Eddie Murphy props makes this a one star!
I'm always looking for a good comedian to watch.Roberts is Hilarious. He isn't over using swear words just to get a laugh as so many do. His humor had me laughing all way through show.So glad I watched.Would like to see more of Tony!!
