Second Concert DVD from the mad Irishman is very funny. Not quite as good as Monster but still amusing. Moran twists and savages everyone and everything with his unique view of things. I especially agree with his dislike for Americans-especially Americans who travel- How can you argue with a man who says that stupid people sound stupider with most American accents. As for his observations about how hard it is to have a conversation with anyone from Germany because you keep thinking "Hitler", I find he's probably on target too.(Though I can't say if he's right about their food).
If there is a downside to the show its the direction and editing of the program. I have a wicked sense that the material was trimmed- or if not trimmed time compressed (much like the difference seeing Eddie Izzard's Circle on the night it was taped, as opposed to a night when he didn't have to keep it at 90 minutes- as good as the show is the pacing seemed off especially if you saw the original show.) There are also odd cuts between angles that seem far from organic that make the whole thing seem mechanical- something that doesn't happen when you just listen to the routines.
Over all worth a look.
