    Seriously hilarious!!

    Zach Galifinakis has a way of just spitting out a truth and making it hilarious!! He's so honest and his humor so quick-witted, he had me in stitches through the whole dvd! See Zach in his true form, before "The Hangover"!! You won't regret buying this dvd!! He's amazing!

    If you like Mort Sahl...

    Live at the Purple Onion is probably the funniest comedy DVD I have ever seen. Not you're typical performance DVD. The film has three different approaches. First is Zach's set at the Purple Onion. The set is incredible. It showcases Zach's quick wit especially when dealing with the audience. His unique brand of humor may be hard for some people to understand, but if you do you will think that he is probably one of the finest comedians in the world right now. The second aspect of the film is the documentary aspect. A film crew follows Zach and his tour buddy and captures a few hilarious moments that show Zach's more neurotic side. The third portion of the film is interviews with Zach's "twin brother" Seth (played by Zach with his beard shaven, and only a mustache remaining.) The interviews are another vehicle for Zach to show his odd brand of humor. I can watch this DVD over and over, never getting tired of it. After each viewing you will discover things that you missed before.
