The Epitome of Hyperbole

I just got Comedy Central the other day when I opted to up my cable subscription so I can watch the exciting pennant race in the AL Central.  Getting Comedy Central was just a surprise which was well appreciated for bringing some reliable comedic programming into my apartment.  That was one of the few channels I watched religiously while I was in high school and I had forgotten just how fantastic it is during the great comedy drought of my broadcast television only college years.  Now there’s a new stand-up comedy special out from Comedy Central and it looks fantastic.

Starting this September 9th, now available on DVD from Comedy Central DVD and Paramount Home Entertainment comes an all-new stand-up special from one of the big names in comedy right now.  Brian Regan – The Epitome Of Hyperbole is ready to burst from your television screen in an absolute explosion of laughter and hilarity.  Bring home this stand alone gem today!

Brian Regan is back with yet another Comedy Central special.  This show features nothing but new material and some of it is stellar, while other parts are merely routine.  Brian talks about the truth behind psychics and their powers, goes over a hilarious bit about what could make the opera more appealing and retreads familiar ground when it comes to stupid crimes and criminals.

The special features included in this DVD are Brian’s encore routine and a look at him backstage.

I’ve seen a couple of Brian Regan specials before and my enthusiasm was definitely held in check.  They’ve been playing them on Comedy Central lately to hype the release of this film and while there are some shining moments, for the most parts, it is nothing but disappointment.  That’s what makes this particular DVD so surprising.  I did not expect it to be noteworthy at all, yet it’s one of the best stand-up performances I have seen this year.  I recommend this film without any hesitation and you should see it today.

This film is not the Epitome of funny, but it’s pretty close.
