THE PLOT THUS FAR
Fluffy’s back and he’s brought his friends. Yes, Gabriel Iglesias is back with a new hit Comedy Central show, Stand-Up Revolution. Join Gabe as he introduces you to 18 of the funniest comedians today.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
“Stand-Up Revolution” enters into its third season. The comedians are a random mix that doesn’t play well off of each other. But, if you like Iglesias…he carries enough of the show to keep you entertained. However, I’m not a fan. Where does that leave me? WHERE DOES THAT LEAVE ME? I don’t know, as most stand-up that airs on basic cable is flat and inoffensive. I’ll watch if it’s a guy or girl that I really dig, but I’ll usually wait to see them live or wait for the premium cable outings. Honestly, it’s the comedy equivalent of buying a CD at Wal-Mart. That is back when people actually bought CDs.
Gabriel Iglesias is an acquired taste. I’m not going to side with the general public that made Mencia a star. I’m just saying that there might be something to Iglesias. I just wish that I could find it by now. Sure, he’s working with bigger talent now, but I don’t see it totally rubbing off on him. Not every comedian has to work with Paul Schrader, but I need something more. Maybe, I’m just picky like that. The third season is more of the same from the past two years and that’s good for the hardcore devoted. I just can’t say that I’m one of them.
The DVD comes with extended and additional seats and animated shorts as the special features. The A/V Quality is pretty strong. The transfer is adequate for standard definition. Plus, the Dolby 5.1 track doesn’t get a ton of back channel action. In the end, I’d recommend a rental.
