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.
The video quality is very good with no major issues.
The feature is presented in a 1.78:1 aspect ratio which is the original aspect ratio. It is 16x9 enhanced.
The picture was quite clear and sharp throughout.
The colour was very good with no issues to report.
There were no obvious artefacts.
There are no subtitles.There is no layer change during playback.
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.
|Surround Channel Use|
The menu included music.
An amusing chat over a drink for a podcast where they discuss their careers and crack the usual jokes. Worth watching.

The video quality is very good.
The audio quality is very good.One small extra.
