Denis Leary & Friends Presents: Douchbags & Donuts
Review by Suzanne 1/26/11
I always love Denis Leary because he is really funny. He proves
on this DVD special that hasn't changed.
This DVD is from a series of live concerts that Leary and his friends did across
the U.S. in 2010. He not only tells lots of great jokes, but there are some
hilarious songs that he and his band play as well. He has three other comedians
who perform with him, including Lenny Clarke, whom you may recognize from
"Rescue Me", Leary's TV show on FX. My husband and I watched the DVD, and both
of us found it very funny, for the most part.
The first comic that you see on the DVD after Leary is Whitney Cummings.
Frankly, we didn't find her to be very funny. She told your standard jokes about
men and women, but they just were not funny (Or she wasn't). Then ther was
Clarke, and he was pretty funny. He started out okay but got better. Lastly was
Adam Ferrara, who was fairly funny. Parts of his were so-so, but he finished
well. I don't know why you wouldn't put Leary both first and last instead of
putting the less-funny comedians after him. It doesn't make a lot of sense.
There are some good extras on the DVD. There is an extra song, which is just as
funny as the others. They have "Snapshots from the Road", which is basically
video clips of some of their time traveling, hanging out, backstage, etc. It's
fun to watch and doesn't take much time. "Detours on the Road to Comedy" is
pretty much the same thing as "Snapshots" - not really sure why they made that
If you get offended easily or don't like really irrevent humor, or you don't
like cussing, you should definitely skip this DVD. There isn't anything that
Leary won't make fun of. That's part of what makes him so funny. I don't always
like it when comedians sing, but his songs are just as funny as the jokes he
Go buy some beer and settle down to watch this on a Friday night! You won't be
