Terrific bit of fun
20 January 2008 | by ('Nulla Beach Sydney Australia) – See all my reviews

This is a wonderful, self-deprecating performance by Geldof sending up his own poverty fighter "sainthood" and hero status! It runs for less than 20 minutes but I rolled about in laughter the whole time - especially when he starts to seriously compete against "himself" in a look-a-like (sound-a-like) competition singing "I Don't Like Mondays" (about the only song The Boomtown Rats are really remembered for). The local rag said of it: (paraphrased) "Geldof can't act his way out of a wet paper bag but tremendous fun anyway". I agree with the second part of this critique but I thought Sir Bob was fabulous in character as himself and really ran with it. Great fun all round - catch it if you can. 9/10
