Critic Reviews for The Original Kings of Comedy
Footage shot from over their shoulders reveals a sea of faces out of which individuals quickly emerge, as the comedians -- especially emcee Harvey -- enthrall and provoke audience members.
A consistently hilarious assemblage of highlights from the hit concert tour of the same name.
This is comedy with a sense of showmanship, and Lee cuts shrewdly to the rhythm of the jokes.
Seeing the film in a crowded theater is a lot more fun than watching it on TV would be, and the crappy, grainy look does create a sort of you-are-there immediacy.
What comes out of these comedians' hearts hits the most powerful chord, and the audience wants more of it.
Audience Reviews for The Original Kings of Comedy
I don't know why Spike Lee directed this but it's hilarious, all up in Charlotte.
I've never seen so many fat black chicks laughing at one time in one crowd. Also I only laughed hard at one joke during the entire DVD, and that was Hughley's "two week notice" bit. Steve Martin's rant about today's rap music was pretty spot on though.
Funny funny stuff.
