All kinds of top people are here, many very famous, but the longest (in terms of time) bits are done by the people you're least likely to have heard of. This is not to say the long bits are bad.

For example, Kelsey Grammar came on and went off what seems like a minute later, and then you're left asking yourself, "did he *do* something?"...Cheech Marin and Louie Anderson are in this category too...
There were bits that had a good time length, like Brad Garrett's, Richard Belzer, Carrot Top, Caroline Rhea, and Tim Allen...
Look, I remember paying like $20 for this...for *five* DVDs of comedians you *have* mostly heard of, this is still a bargain...just don't expect everyone to be on very long or to be doing their best material.
