Comedy's Dirtiest Dozen: This classic comedy concert film launched the careers of Tim Allen, Chris Rock and Jackie The Joke Man Martling. It also features the definitive performance of legendary Bill Hicks. The Heavyweights of Comedy: "Fat is where it's at!" This heavy film was shot on the same weekend as Comedy's Dirtiest Dozen. It features 8 of the heaviest and funniest comedians ever. Among these comedians are some rare jewels, including Bob Woods who died in 1990 . Woods' comic impression of Jackie Gleason is considered among comedians as the definitive Gleason impersonation of all time. You will also recognize Tim O'Rourke as the bartender from the "Drew Carey Show" and Thea Vidale who had her TV series, "Thea". This uncensored, no holds barred comedy film ends in a comic feast so large that even the chairs could not hold them. Written by Clint Weiler

Worth watching for the 3 recognizable names...
12 February 2005 | by (Minnesota) – See all my reviews

I rented this solely because of Tim Allen, Chris Rock, and Bill Hicks, and as I expected, they were the highlights of the movie. The title doesn't lie--these 12 performers really are comedy's dirtiest. The humor is vulgar, shocking, and totally filthy, but only these three know how to do it right. It also says a lot about the overall quality of this movie that they are the only ones who have anything original to say. The rest of them are all from the school of comedy that teaches if you can't think of anything creative, a bunch of anal sex jokes will do.

Personally, I thought Tim Allen gave the very best performance. He is uproariously funny, and it is hard to believe that he went from doing this to fluff like "Home Improvement" (a good show, but not anything like his early standup). He is the ONLY one who actually had me laughing out loud.

Chris Rock is also good (not great). He is very young here, but he already has his "born suspect" act nailed. He is pretty good for an up-and-coming comedian, and any fan of his should rent this movie immediately.

And, of course, there's Bill Hicks, who outshines everyone else by far (Allen made me laugh the hardest, but Bill still has the better act). How they can include a genius like Hicks with the likes of Stephanie Hodge is beyond me. He was one hell of a comedian, and almost makes it worth it to buy this. Almost.

5/10 stars. Watch it for the guys you know.
