Excellent comedian
15 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a good movie, especially the concert part. Eddie is a great mimic. Check out this movie if you want to laugh a lot. Also, noticed that Eddie looks a lot like Alan Keyes. The part about different religions is great. Not for everyone, as some people, especially the people who should see a film like this, wont go because they don't want to expose their delicate ears to profanity but have no problem with all the crap that goes on in the world. Funnier than Chris Rock if you ask me. Also, this movie gives a good idea of how people are like in the Midwest as the concert takes place in the Midwest. Check it out if you want to see a good movie. Kabish?
