Lavell Crawford is quickly climbing the comedic ranks, taking second place in NBC's Last Comic Standing, he one of the fastest rising stars in Comedy. In "Can a Brother Get Some Love" Lavell takes the stage at the Historic Roberts Orpheum Theatre in his hometown of St. Louis and brings the house down with a classic side-splitting, performance.

A bit slow here and there and a bit adult, but still pretty funny.
It is important to point out that this show would be best watched with the closed captioning on. While I thought Lavell Crawford was quite funny, he seemed as if he had a slight speech impediment and captioning helped a lot.
As for this concert video, it was very funny but like many concert videos, it's full of offensive stuff. If you don't want offensive, try a show with Gabriel Iglesias, John Pinnette or perhaps Jeanne Robertson (if she ever makes one). But, if you don't get too twisted out of shape when Lavell talks about sex (a bit graphically at times), mental retardation and uses adult language, then this one is for you. I particularly liked when he talked about his mother and her less than stellar parenting style. As for the rest, while enjoyable, I really thought the first third of the show was best.
Overall, I would expect to see more from Lavell as he is quite funny and puts on a good show. Clever but also a bit adult at times.
