funniest comedy special ever
7 March 2003 | by (WI) – See all my reviews

I first saw Jake on a young comedians special. Then came this. The funniest comedy special ever. Rank it up there (just above) Robin Williams at the Met, Eddie Murphy Delirious, Richard Jeni -Platypus Man, and Bill Cosby-Himself. (Also Andrew "Dice" Clay's first special,and the late Sam Kinisons HBO specials, but I understand that they are not for everyone). "This will take about an hour" starts out funny and soon becomes side splitting. Your drawn into Jake's story telling, and odd delivery as he weaves a web that traps you in hysterics. My friends and I have watched this so many times our copies are quickly wearing out. I talked to Jake at a couple of his shows and asked if there were any plans to release it on video/DVD. Nothing for sure yet. I was surprised to see this special make TV guides 100 funniest moments on TV, but definitely agreed it deserved to be there. Check Jake out live if you get the chance.
