Pretty Creative Stand-Up.
3 November 2007 | by Batkid1See all my reviews

I once saw part of this "amazing" guy on part of "Comedy Central Presents" and had a hoot, but then I was surprised to see an original concert with him performing on the same network.

I watched and was entertained flawlessly and I can tell everyone I was watching it with was too. But the creative combination of a stand-up comic and a magician is just plain genius! Comic Jeff Dunham does a similar routine where he performs as a ventriloquist and gets the same amount of laughs.

Anyway, parents watch this on Comedy Central if you want a somewhat family-appropriate show or if you have mature ones get them the DVD which comes uncensored.

Either way, this is a must for comedy lovers everywhere!
