Thou Shalt Laugh (Comedy concert)
Picture: B- Sound: C+ Extras: C Concert: C
comedy concert has become its own cycle.
In a new twist, Thou Shalt Laugh
offers Christian comics telling jokes and though you don’t have to be Christian
to enjoy them and can appreciate a clean comedy act, the jokes in his case just
happen to be more miss than hit. Hosted
by the never-funny Patricia Heaton, the comics that appear include Thor Ramsey,
Michael Jr., Jeff Allen, Teresa Roberts Logan, Joby Saad, Gilbert Esquivel and
them are bad, just not always great. I
can say that all of them are ambitious and off to decent starts. I would like to see their work within a year
or two to see who their individual acts change.
There is room for a much needed comeback of comedy without its mind in
the gutter. At least they tried.
X 1 image does look a little better than expected, though there is not much of
a challenge keeping up with a comedian isolated on a stage, yet we have seen
such things botched before. The Dolby
Digital 2.0 Stereo has no surrounds and is just fine to hear the jokes. Extras include a behind the scenes piece, outtakes
and The Private Lives of Taylor's Puppets.
