I’m a huge fan of Christopher Titus’ old sitcom from Fox called Titus. It was an extremely funny comedy that was underrated and never got the respect it deserved. The comedy series still makes me chuckle. But I’m not here to talk about that sitcom; we’re here to talk about Titus’ new stand-up act airing on Valentine’s Day.
Titus’ stand-up special is about love, relationships, divorce, starting over and his hatred for Capri pants. It’s a perfect stand-up act to watch on Valentine’s Day, which it aired. The DVD comes out the Tuesday following V-Day. Christopher talks very openly about his divorce and his rocky relationship with his ex-wife. If you thought all the crazy plot points and situations that happened on his sitcom were made up…think again. Chris doesn’t hold back anything and let’s his psycho sounding ex-wife have it. He may sound bitter (he has a right to) but at least he’s funny in the process. I can’t believe all the stuff he went through, if it’s all true. He claims it’s his side of the story, and said that we’re more than welcome to hear her side of things when she builds a fancy set and gets a comedy special. I have a feeling the stuff is true though. You can see the anger in his eyes.
Titus goes into a lot of detail about certain events that happened with his ex, but he also goes into things about his wild Father as well. Some things he mentioned before in other comedy specials but mentions his Dad being in the armed forces for a brief period of time. Towards the end, Titus seems to get a little more cheery when discussing his new girlfriend, who happens to be a Diesel Jeans model? So all things can’t be bad in the end right Chris? You just had to go to hell and back to get there.
The extras on this DVD include a behind the scenes look at the DVD cover photo shoot, a featurette where the fans speak about their rocky Valentine’s Day dates. The final featurette is a countdown to V-Day with Christopher Titus as he gives the guys pointers on what to do and get their girls. For being a special on Comedy Central, I was glad to see there were some extras to watch after the comedy special. Sometimes studios just provide the stand-up special and that’s it.
If you saw this performance on TV and want to watch it uncensored, and without any commercials in it; then this DVD is for you. If you didn’t see this and like Titus’ stand-up material or a person who’s bitter about love and relationship; you’ll like this just as much. Your girlfriend may not like this material but this one is certainly men can enjoy and appreciate.
