Bill Burr: Let It Go DVD Review
“Bill Burr: Let It Go” is an amusing comedy special.
“Let It Go” is a comedy special by the loud voiced comedian Bill Burr from the Filmore in San Francisco. Essentially, Burr tells stories from the road and rants about gross people, his girlfriend, racism, being a man, getting a dog, old men, marriage, shopping, etc.
Let’s face it, humor is subjective. Each person finds a certain brand of comedy of amusing and some that are not so amusing. With that said, if you appreciate sarcastic rants and honest observational humor, you might want to check out Bill Burr’s material. As with most comedians, his material is hit-and-miss. When he’s going off about corporate chains, old men’s facial expressions, married men cleaning gutters, and self-checkouts, I found myself laughing quite a bit. When he’s talking about “being a man,” his jokes didn’t elicit much laughs. My advice? Check out some clips of his work on YouTube and what not to see if you find his stand-up funny. If you like what you see, you might want to check out the “Let It Go” DVD.
The 1.78:1 widescreen picture is mostly irrelevant for a comedy special as specials usually consist of the comedian on a stage with the occasional crowd shots. That’s exactly what happens here. With that said, it looks decent. No more, no less.
Burr and crowd are loud and clear on this Dolby Digital 5.1 audio track.
