'Drew Hastings: Irked and Miffed'
(Drew Hastings / DVD / NR / 2008 / Image Entertainment)
Overview: "At 6'6"" tall, clad in a tailored black suit and trademark black horn-rimmed glasses, Drew Hastings is a commanding presence on the stage. As he launches into his personal study of the complex human condition, the irregularities and uncertainties of misguided love, and his earnest attempts at farming, he is hilarious, insightful and deeply self-deprecating. Drew has been a regular guest on the syndicated Bob and Tom Radio Show and All-Star Theatre Tour, and he has years of stand up experience in clubs all across the country. His seasoned comedic talent pays off big in his first long awaited comedy special! Articulate yet acerbic, Drew Hastings is a raconteur with plenty of stories to tell. Irked & Miffed will leave you anything but.
DVD Verdict: I was in the audience in Toledo where Drew Hastings was taping this special, but for the life of me never knew he was taping the show that night ... all done very secretively! Anyway, I hadn't heard of him before but I thought it would be cool to get in to see a Comedy Central talent perform in my city
I am so glad I went, Drew has an instant fan in me! I laughed so hard that I lost one of my contacts (I tear up when I laugh). But it was totally worth it. He covered a lot of things, from road trips with his younger girlfriend to not having children to (unsuccessfully) coyote hunting alone while clinically depressed. I ended up driving two hours away to catch another show the next month and that was just as good.
Honestly, this guy's stories are so funny that I'm considering wearing Depends if I ever go see his live show. Buy this DVD, you won't regret it. I can't wait till he tours close to here again, but until then, I'll definitely be watching him on his DVD over and over again! This is a Full Screen Presentation (1.33:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs, but (unfortunately) does not come with any Special Features.
