I have two (2) copies of the recently released Comic Relief: The Greatest… and the Latest DVD to give away. There’s two disk in this, the first collecting some highlights from the 20 years of the benefit shows and the second has the full 2006 show.
I actually was in the audience for the 2006 show, which was pretty amazing though a long show (this was also have four days of a comedy festival for me, so I may have been under a little laughter fatigue). DVD is kind of ideal here, where you can move directly to Louis CK‘s great saddest handjob in the world bit or, in your case, perhaps, your favorite comic. There’s a lot of them on there: Sarah Silverman, Lewis Black, Katt Williams, George Lopez, Bill Maher, et ceterea.
The first disk might possibly be your favorite though, if you grew up watching a couple of these shows like I did. Though in abbreviated forms, there’s footage of Bobcat Goldthwait drinking squid juice and the Bob and David naked improv game. Plus George Carlin‘s “Place to put your stuff” routine, some proto-bits from Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock, early Garry Shandling, Elayne Boosler, Steven Wright. All that and Dane Cook with an “achy breaky heart” mullet during his 1996 appearance on “American Comedy Festival.”
