Plot Synopsis

    Back in 2011, Madman released an initial series of DVD releases of the Warehouse Comedy Festival. At the time I reviewed the shows by  Denise Scott  Charlie Pickering . Now Madman have released a second set of these shows, recorded in 2012 in the same venue. These include shows by Judith Lucy (reviewed here), Frank Woodley, Peter Heliar, Lawrence Mooney & Hannah Gadsby amongst others. It is great to see local comedy getting airtime on ABC2 but also getting released onto DVD.

    This is a funny set by Judith Lucy who starts with some audience participation but then covers diverse topics such as sex and dating, Mel Gibson, TV shows, smart phones, politics, allergies, physical appearance and tells some funny stories about her own television series about spirituality. She is her usual droll, self-deprecating, acerbic and rude self and very amusing as well.

    Well worth a look for fans of Australian comedy.

Audio

    The audio quality is very good.

    This disc contains a English soundtrack in Dolby Digital 2.0 encoded at 224Kb/s.

    Dialogue was clear and easy to hear and understand, obviously the most important sound attribute for stand-up.

    The surround speakers and subwoofer were not used.

Justin Hamilton shews the fat with Jude & Tony Martin (9:53)

NOTE: To view non-R4 releases, your equipment needs to be multi-zone compatible and usually also NTSC compatible.
