Still crazy funny after all these years
11 September 2010 | by Nooshin_NavidiSee all my reviews

Oh, how I missed Dana Carvey and his antics! And he hasn't lost his touch.

The act is easily one of Carvey's best and laugh-out-loud funny pretty much from start to finish. As always, his political observations & impressions are spot-on and side-splittingly funny, and he spares no one. His Reagan bit is so good, it actually made me appreciate the late president just a bit.

The only part of the act I found a little weak was his Al Gore bit, which started out very strong & funny, but went on too long and lost its way. Reminded me of when Robin Williams goes on one of his characteristically clever-but-exhausting tangents and doesn't know when to stop! But is was an exception to an otherwise solid act.

The "unorganized" religion bit was one of the best parts of the show and completely fresh comic writing. And don't miss the 'Special Features'; both the deleted scenes and the audience "Q & A" are hilarious. If you're from Northern California or lived there, you'll especially relate to some of his references. But that's just a small part of his act.

As always, Carvey never crosses the line into mean-spiritedness, but easily glides in and out of every impression & expression, reminding us of the huge talent we came to know and love before he left the scene due to his heart condition. It's a bittersweet irony that Dana Carvey is one comic who is ALL heart...
