It must be embarrassing for other stand up comedians to watch Ross Noble DVDs.
Not only is the quality of the main performance better than most can dream of, there are always a stack of other recorded gigs which have practically all different material, which is of just as high a standard (at least in terms of content if not production).
Most of his peers would have just the one show and then maybe a behind the scenes doco, but a Ross Noble release is practically an entire weekend’s viewing.
His latest, Nonsensory Overload, is the perfect case in point. The first disc is filmed in Canberra and is another meandering ramble of tangents and side stories, much made up from the top of his head, and is one of the funniest stand-up performances you will see this year.
This is down mainly to his style which appears aimless but does follow a path, albeit one with so many tangents he inevitably ends up back where he left off, well almost.
There are a further two discs comprising other full length shows (which differ greatly from the main performance), clips and specially made features - and they are just as funny.
The only problem is there is no Australian release date a yet (UK-only at this point) but considering the mutual love between Ross and Australia, it should be a short wait.
Ross has also announced the tour dates for his next Australia tour which will be in March and April.
