The night of the show's taping, the crew set up but through some error gave the actors no access to the bathroom. Just before the show, Denis Leary had to use the bathroom badly but had no way of getting to it. Chris Phillips took a look at the crowd and seeing no way to get Denis to the bathroom without making the audience believe the show had started, handed Denis a bucket. See more »

This is one of the few stand-up performances that actually justifies "concert" movies. With just a pack of cigarettes, a microphone and his incredible talent, Denis Leary takes on an arsenal of subjects with wit, passion and scathing commentary. Why isn't this man a bigger star? If his movies could capture even an ounce of the intelligence and charisma he displays prowling the stage in this one-hour special, he should be making more money than Tom Cruise and Jim Carrey put together. Even when he turns reflective and introspective, he doesn't let sentiment get in the way of his hilarious act. The next time you're complaining there's no funny movies to rent, take this home--no excuses!
