Review published on November 9th 2011.
The veteran comedian is back once again with yet another release, this one is called ‘Cornish Ambassador’. The release date is just in time for Christmas 2011. It can be ordered from all online DVD retailers and you can also buy it on the high-street.
So is it any good? And is it up to the usual Jethro standards?
The gig starts off in very typical fashion, with a filthy joke, involving his testicles and a female nurse. Typical Jethro! No mucking about, straight in with the trademark smut.
The DVD is broken up with Interludes of Jethro reading out funny letters. It’s a fun format because it breaks up the gig and makes it feel like it all goes so quick.
The gags throughout the DVD are as you’d expect, a lot of smut and sleaze, often involving his wife. It’s all very similar to his previous work, same style, topics, and wording. Although the jokes I hadn’t heard before, they are similar to past ones. But I guess this is what everyone expects when you’ve released over 20 stand-up DVDs!
The show finishes off with Jethro singing a nice Cornwall song, living up to the title of the tour.
This was up there as possibly the best I’ve seen of Jethro. Plenty of ‘laugh out loud’ moments, rather than just chuckles.
Unfortunately, it is only just over an hour-long, which is disappointing, it would have been better if it was closer to 90minutes. But they do say always leave them wanting more. The extras are also thin on the ground, there’s one called ‘Classic Camborne’ and also some bloopers. But that’s it.
Due to its shortness and lack of features it only scores 7/10 overall, but the actual gig will have you in stitches if you like an old school crude joke.
If you’re a loyal Jethro fan this is another must to add to the collection.
