People pay up to $75 and $80 a seat to see Gabriel Iglesias (AKA Fluffy) perform his comedy in places like Lake Tahoe and Reno. So paying $19.99 for a disc of his comedy seems, at first glance, like a bargain. However, here Iglesias and his very funny Master of Ceremonies, Martin Moreno, basically serve as the introducers of new comedy talent - some of it average, some of it excellent. There are 12 separate upcoming comedians who come on stage in South Florida, doing a quick - and sometimes not-so-quick - run-through of their nightly act. This disc presents the entire second season of Comedy Central's show Stand-Up Revolution and some may wish that there was less rather than more.
With two exceptions, the comedians featured in this compilation are either Hispanic of African or African-American. They might have placed on advisory sticker on the DVD reading, "This is intended for audiences that love ethnic humor. It may not be appropriate for all viewers." The audiences present during the taping sessions were virtually all Hispanics, and they clearly enjoyed the jabs at their own cultural mores and those of other minority groups.
Trevor Noah, the first of the many comedians, is a mixed race comedian from Africa. He noted that his father was black and his white mother was from Switzerland, as "The Swiss love chocolate." Noah seems like a nice guy, but not a terribly funny one. Dov Davidoff is the Anglo comedian who tries to pretend that he's not funny, but he is as he jokes about the economy being so bad that people now watch reality TV to see other people working.
Nick Guerra from south Texas does a pretty average routine about males being dumb and disgusting. It seems like this territory has been well-covered before. Gina Yashere, a black woman from England, is truly funny as when she alerts the audience to the fact that, "Black people are not indigenous to England." Her set about her return to her native Nigeria is pretty much worth the price of admission.
