As we have come to expect, MC has brought the standup comedy with a fierceness. Although not as vulgar as some of her prior concerts, the viewer will forgive that due to her scathing political tirade. I didn't laugh as much as I did watching her other standup, but this was more a thinking person's routine. Hey, she "did" her mom, so I was happy. The Extras include some contributions from fans and one was quite touching...the other one I just didn't get. Bottom Line: Rent definitly, but only a MCHO true fan will purchase. That's my girl, though.
