2009 has not been that good a year when it comes to stand-up comedy on DVD.
Proof is we could only come up with 6 good titles for our top ten stand-up DVD list for this year. So there you go. The one must absolutely have if you are a fan of the genre is the Make ‘Em Laugh set about the history of comedy.
