D.H.This is one of the funniest standup specials I've seen in recent memory.It's not the usual special taped in a big auditorium. It's cut together from numerous comedy clubs on one of his tours. So the vibe is definitely different. ?Plus I've never seen anyone work a crowd like he does. Numerous crowds in this case.
