Kristen Schaal: Live at the Fillmore DVD Review


Synopsis: The rising comedy star debuts her first full-length stand up special live at the historic Fillmore Theatre. Kristen Schaal, best known for her work on The Daily Show, Flight of the Conchords, Bob's Burgers and 30 Rock, continues to be a rising presence in the alternative comedy scene. Kristen's devoted fanbase will be clamoring for this release. Enter the truly unique world of Kristen's comedy with this extended and uncensored special where inanimate objects come alive and experience the twists and turns that set this special apart from all others.

Review: We love stand-up here at the Legion.  We see a whole lot of it and it mostly follows the same formula.  Once or twice in a generation does someone dare to go outside the box.  You may know Kristen best from her role as the creepy groupie from Flight of the Conchords.  She starts the show out with jokes and it is pretty standard...then it starts to turn.  The show begins to get slow..ackward..and full of pauses and delays that you can tell the audience does not get.  She eventually goes into full Andy Kauffman mode and creates an alienating, strange and bizarre comedy show.  Its absolutely brilliant, but certainly not for everyone.  I do highly recommend it though.  Love it.

Interest Range: Stand-up Comedy
