Trivia

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 »

Goofs

Denis jokes about Mama Cass Elliott choking to death, but she actually died of a heart attack. See more »

This comedy special kicks a**!!
21 August 2003 | by (Michigan, USA) – See all my reviews

I LOVED this special. It is, other than The Ref, Denis Leary's best work. He talked about everything that bothered him, from non-smokers to vegetarians, and he was brilliant the whole way through. Even during the sentimental moments of the show, he was fantastic. And to anyone who thinks that Denis was complaining about how hard he had it....take a second and think about it. He was praising his late father, and talking about all the funny and great things that happened to him when he was a kid. I HIGHLY recommend this to anyone who enjoys Denis or stand up comedy period. 10/10
