Robert Dubacís Inside The Male Intellect (Stand-up Comedy)


Picture: C+†††† Sound: B-†††† Extras: C†††† Routine: B-



Stand up comedy continues to be a popular kind of DVD title, and the nice thing about Robert Dubacís Inside The Male Intellect is that it does not try too hard.Dubac is definitely interested in a female audience and playing good-looking dumb boy when it comes to relationships, even as he offers all kinds of insight and provocation of his audience, especially female.He also does this as various characters to push the limits of various male ego limits.The comedy is not immediately a laugh riot, but is consistent and clever throughout.


Dubac writes all the routines, and on stage, adds the device (prerecorded or not) of a female voice offering counterpoint throughout.The only problem I had throughout involves assumptions of male/female interaction that are not always true at any one time.The act does not become a one-joke affair, but it is a hit-and-miss one.It also assumes what a female audience is, which also has its limits, while the title mocks the kind of men who are a bit dysfunctional.Not quite the battle of the sexes, Inside The Male Intellect is worth a look and listen.


The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image was shot on tape and has the usual limits, but it is fine for this kind of program in front of a live audience.The Dolby Digital 5.1 mix is an interesting choice for a show that offers constant jokes, but it does guarantee clarity and a better idea of audience reaction.Extras include a few more bonus segments of Bob in action, but that is it.By the way, some copies include a 15-minute phone card for those who might want to call a loved one.This is amusing all the way.
