Sporadically funny, otherwise a bit like staring inside the windows of an asylum from a distance
17 January 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

STAR RATING: ***** Saturday Night **** Friday Night *** Friday Morning ** Sunday Night * Monday Morning

As if everything else wasn't going well enough for him lately, the bouffant haired comedian of the title in question sort of shot himself in the foot/gained even more publicity with his now well publicised, out of order obscene phone calls to Fawlty Towers star Andrew Sachs late last year. Before that, though, he was making his name in recorded live shows like this one, filmed at The Hackney Empire in London. Restraint doesn't seem to be Brand's forte, as he wildly prances and jumps around the stage with more energy and gusto than your average stand up comic, even running into the audience and throwing himself on their laps and in their faces. All the drugs he's done seem to have warped his mind, and mostly he simply comes across as an articulate Ozzy Osbourne. All this aside, though, there are sporadic moments of on the ball humour that do strike a chord, but if you're not in the mood, it will feel like a prison sentence. ***
