Yes, this IS an incredible stand-up comedy act!
13 October 2007 | by See all my reviews

I'm not exaggerating when I say this is the funniest stand-up-comedy act I have ever seen!

Jim Carrey does it all! From funny jokes, hilarious faces and voices, physical gags, great impersonations, etc., Jim can do no wrong here.

He touches on many great topics, such as relationships, sex, parents, old age, religion, music, human impulses, etc. in a completely harmless and non-offending way, all while making everyone in the audience laugh hysterically. There are even little 15-second skits (in between commercial breaks) for kicks, not to mention a little outro in the show containing a little animated section.

I think he even seems more funny and witty here than he does in most of his future films. What he pulls off in this show seems more intimate and pure, something the usual fan hasn't quite seen from him to this extent.

I am very fortunate to not only have seen this when it came out (on GlobalTV here in Canada) back when I was only about 9-years-old, but to luckily still own a VHS taping of it still. Back when this came out, I used to tell people at school about Jim Carrey, and no one would even knew who the he was, haha.

Overall, I would honestly give this an A+ grade. This is a true gem that would eventually become what was (and what is) Jim Carrey.

Thanks a lot, M. Sorge (a long-time Canadian fan)
