Really enjoyable hour of stand-up
16 February 2009 | by See all my reviews

Shortly after the funeral laying all his "bits" to rest, Jerry is confronted by a young boy who is shocked that Seinfeld would retire and convinces him to do a show one last time.

Unlike many HBO comedy specials, the opening segment of this one is actually pretty amusing and it is only the "OK kid" moment that is wooden and clunky. After this we get right into the stand-up show which is consistently funny. Much like his sitcom, Seinfeld's material is based in reality and in the tiny aspects of life that everyone in the audience will recognise. The thing that makes it funny is what he does with them because he is blessed with a great comedic imagination and way of seeing things that allows his to draw the humour from them. Whether it is air travel, men, the chemist, sports or horses, he keeps the observations coming and even his little throw-away lines are funny. His delivery is great as well and his physical delivery helps his gags and does make it worth seeing the DVD rather than just the CD audio.

OK so it will not be everyone's cup of tea and I totally get that some people do not like this sort of comedian but for me this is imaginative, fresh, free of crudity and consistently funny. A really enjoyable hour of stand-up.
