Otto and George are probably the dirtiest comedy team (even though there is really only one of them) around. However what separates them from other dirty comics is that they are also very funny. If you get a chance to see them live take it, although be warned the front few rows are fair game for ridicule.
As a film American Dummy is very funny, but if you like this movie you should track down the director's previous film: SIDESPLITTERS, it is even better. Sidesplitters stars Lewis Black (the Daily Show, and the owner of the club in American Dummy) and Jim Norton (the clubs Host in American Dummy) as a comedy team in vein of Abbot and Costello or the Marx Brothers. It follows their career together from the Vaudville stage to the retirement home. I cannot recommend this movie enough. Where American Dummy was an 8, Sidesplitters is a 10.
