Stand-up comic Dov Davidoff does not stand out. It took me a while to figure this out. I listened to his stand-up comedy CD The Point Is … a few times and could never remember any of the material. The point is too much generic material buries the more original routines and Davidoff’ s character.
The fact he also sounds like a nasal Adam Sandler and has the somewhat unfocused patter of a drunk did not help me like this release.
Davidoff starts off his show with a tittie joke, a Starbucks employee joke, and the comment that if there is no medium a large is a medium and a grande is a large. The next bit about strange answers to ordinary questions is good and an interesting take on people but the comedian then shoots for a joke about a guy at a bus stop commenting on a chick.
This really takes away from his next question, “How am I supposed to eat soup with an envelope?”
Make no mistake, this stand-up comic has the chops. He’s good really good segues and solid callbacks to some audience banter.
Even the Brand X insert comic here material like a reference to Magic Johnson and AIDS is pretty funny but it really takes away from the comic’s more original stuff like the ex-girlfriend who quoted literature.
The point is Dov Davidoff is a good comic but the material on this comedy CD is not as good.
