Hilarious
27 February 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Eddie Griffen is clearly one of the funniest comedians around and this innovatively well put together DVD is a welcome and hilarious break from the norm.

Griffen's no nonsense sense of humour is brilliant and along with the way Gallo (the director) ties all of eddie's routine into pieces of footage taken of his family, discussing the events he's describing in the routine, is really fresh! I totally loved and was disappointed to see a 1/10 review. If you don't find this DVD funny and quirky then you need to get rid of the pocket protector Poindexter!! This isn't for the faint of heart- it's for everyone with a pulse and a personality-it's a offensive in part but it's REALLY funny!
