New Stand Up Comedy DVD's for 2007 - Now 2008

For some reason I do one of these threads every year: (2004 , 2005 and 2006). I figured I might as well do the same again this year:

Please add any others I have missed or you think relevant (stuff from the US/Australia etc is welcomed).

Pam Ann - Come Fly With Me

Jethro: Back Of Beyond

Jimmy Carr – Comedian

Monty Python Live At The Hollywood Bowl

Tony Robinson's Cunning Night Out!

Jim Davidson - The Devil Rides Out

Roy "Chubby" Brown - The Good, The Bad And The Fat *******

Ben Elton: Live - Get A Grip (this was supposed to be released last year. I wonder why it wasn’t)

Rob Newman - Live: History Of Oil (extra Caliban to the Taliban)

Mark Thomas - Serious Organised Criminal

Ricky Gervais Live 3: Fame

Ricky Gervais - Live Collection 2007 – Animals/Politics/Fame

Ben Elton - Definitive Live - Live 97/Get A Grip/The Very Best Of Live/ Very Live

Ross Noble - Fizzy Logic

Marcus Brigstocke: Planet Corduroy

Alan Carr: Tooth Fairy - Live

Pam Ayres: Unsupported

Billy Connolly - Live: Was It Something I Said?

Al Murray The Pub Landlord Live at the London Palladium

Russell Brand - Live 2

Omid Djalili - No Agenda

Sean Hughes - The Right Side Of Wrong

Ardal O'Hanlon: Live

Lee Evans 2007 Box Set – Live At Her Majesty's/Live From The West End/Different Planet Tour/Live In Scotland/Live At Wembley/XL Tour 2005 Live/The Ultimate Experience Live - (Isn't this boxset release every year?)

Lee Mack: Live - (this was also supposed to be released last year but wasn’t for some reason)


No Doubt the biggest selling stand up DVD this year will be:
Peter Kay: Stand Up Ukay

Quote
He's been listed by The Times as one of Britain's best loved national treasures, has released chart-topping records, performed record breaking sell-out tours, made genre defining comedy series and best-selling books and DVDs.

'Stand-up UK' features Peter Kay at his undisputed best - Live. Featuring classic routines especially chosen by the British public, including Garlic Bread, Dipping Biscuits, the dancing skills of people at weddings, as well as the video for the No. 1 smash-hit '(I'm Gonna Be) 500 Miles'.

With unique insight and interviews with the Great British Public, 'Stand-up UK' is a joyful celebration of not only the comedy of Peter Kay but of British humour in the 21st Century.


Who is going to buy that?

Also another cash in:
Peter Kay: The Early Years

Also:

For those that don't know. http://www.gofasterstripe.com/ plan to release new dvd's by Lucy Porter and Robin Ince soon plus they are filming another Richard Herring show.

Oh they have just released a new Simon Munery DVD.

Stu

Does anyone know of comedians releasing DVDS through their own website?

isn't Peter Kay due a new show?

I'll definatley be getting Jimmy Carrs new one, his last one was hilarious.

Might get Ricky Gervais too and Chubby Brown which will probably have 5 minutes worth of new material.

Didn't Peter Kay already take a lot of stick for releasing his 'Mum Needs A Bungalow Tour' material twice - once on the 'Bolton Albert Halls' DVD and again on the Manchester Arena one? How that is going to be redeemed by releasing clips from that show yet again is beyond me?!

As for the 'Early Years' interview, I think I caught some of it on Paramount Comedy recently (I assume it was the same thing having read about this release elsewhere). It was pretty interesting actually - he was still working at the local cinema part time when it was filmed, despite having won North West Comedian of the Year and establishing himself on the scene. Worth its own DVD though? Probably not.

Cheers for the list, couple on there I hadn't heard of and will probably purchase in the post-Xmas sales.

I've seen both Alan Carr and Jimmy Carr live (I presume it's these shows they're releasing), having gone not really big fans of both and thoroughly enjoyed both shows.

Peter Kay desperately needs to do a new tour, this must be the 3rd or 4th dvd he's released containing (pretty much) the same show.

Yeah, I believe it is that same show on dvd. Worth watching on tv if you get the chance but not worth buying as there's very little re-watch value.

Don't forget Joe Rogan: Live, one of the best stand up dvds of the year. For Ł9.99 you can't go wrong. I guarantee you'll be crying with laughter the whole way through it.

I saw 20 minutes (towards the end where he had he T-Shirts) of his first one and laughed a little. A guy in work raved about his new and lent it to me on Monday.

I laughed maybe twice during the whole. It's slightly racist, homophobic, childish and most importantly not very funny. But he's doing well for himself so

In a similar vein I didn't really enjoy Ricky Gervais's Fame show.

And I did quite like the previous 2.

The reason I asked (obviously) is to guage whether you were expressing the opinion that this latest DVD was a downturn in standard, or whether you just don't like Jimmy Carr. Seems like the latter. Your description makes it sound like his material hasn't changed much, although I do find him quite funny.

I'm looking forward to checking out Ricky's new show, and Mark Thomas too because it's been a while since I saw him do anything and I'm wondering what he's up to now. Plus I've always got some love for Richard Herring on the GoFasterStripe releases - here's hoping for some more Stewart Lee stuff soon!

Gotta get Noble - it was a brilliant show, and hopefully some stuff from the Wellington gig will be on it!

Seen Ricky Gervais and Jimmy Carr and out of the both JC was by far the best. Could just about get through the RG one, i think i laughed about 4 times in all.

Only seen a few shows with Ross Noble and it was ok, has he still got that hair peice ?

saw him doing Fame live, and thought it much better than his two previous efforts

anyone really want a comedy DVD for Xmas? I thought that they're a bit like interactice DVD games - seem like a good idea at the time, but are a bit crap/never end up being watched
