I was browsing on Netflix just to browse and I saw this. I couldn't believe that one of my childhood favorite actors actually decided to put out a stand up comedy special. Although it also made sense because let's face it, who isn't trying their hands at stand up comedy today? Even though I thought Wilson was great in the Back to the Future films, I wasn't expecting much from this special. Although... it turned out to be absolutely hilarious. The reason why I wasn't expecting anything great is because I felt he might be too reliant on Back to the Future references because he's so famous for playing the series antagonist Biff Tannen... kinda like another comedian *cough* Bob Saget *cough*. Although instead of having all his jokes be constant references to the BTTF films, he takes the persona that he's well known for (big angry tough guy) and applies it into his comedy and it works well in his favor. Although thankfully he doesn't use it too much to the point of this being Biff's Stand-Up Special. Another thing that I was glad was the absence of profanity. Now I don't mind profanity, it's just that 98% of all comedians are so reliant on it that it becomes distracting and really annoying. But Wilson is able to stay clear of profanity and it makes it even more enjoyable. Although it does kinda bug me that he had to do the clichéd thing of making fun of white people stereotypes and sex life but these moments only take up like 3% of the show so it's forgettable.
So overall, if your a fan of Tom Wilson or if you're looking for a comedian that is refreshing and appropriate for the whole family, this is a must have in your DVD collection.
