Gets Credit For Showing What Few Would
5 January 2014 | by houstonreserveSee all my reviews

Dandurand may or not be the ultimate showbiz loser, but a failed child actor, stand up comedian and recently radio DJ is enough to qualify him if there were such an award. As much as I would like to put into detail how insignificant this individual is in the world of entertainment, but instead it would be a flat out lie if I said 'How Embarrassing' didn't have heart. Sure it's a bargain basement videography at best, but rarely do we see the threadbare depths some of these comedians or so called comics dwell. Dandurand's story is far from sad, here was a somewhat attractive kid whose first job was on the set of a feature film. Small parts follow in the 'Wonder years' and so forth. Some where along the line he develops a xxx rated stand up persona and takes Radio gigs where nobody wants to work. There is some who say his luck was bad but Dandurand proves he wrote his own ticket for disaster. Excessive food and cliché rock and roll drug stories follow. So as much as I hate the subject, you can't hate somebody opening up themselves and showing you the stuff you know they don't want to see.
