Tom Wilson: Bigger Than You DVD Review!


Tom Wilson: Bigger Than You DVD Review!

You can purchase this DVD online today

Synopsis: Tom Wilson’s standup comedy is a unique and hilarious take on life that had brought him to the top of the comedy world. Know the world over for his classic roles in Back to the Future, Freaks and Geeks, SpongeBob Squarepants, and many more, this hour long, high energy blend of comedy and music – as clean as it is hysterical – will have the entire family doubled over in laughter!

Review: Who?  There are so many comedians out there, how do you even tell them apart, aside from the most famous names.  You may not instantly recognize the name of Tom Wilson, but what if I threw the name Biff Tannon out there?  Thats right, Tom is recognizable as Biff from the Back to the Future trilogy!  Butthead!  I'm sure Tom gets tired of hearing that, but he's out of luck.  Honestly, thats what set him apart from every other comedian out there to get a chance in our schedule of DVD reviews here on the Legion!   I have to say that I'm not sorry we gave him a chance, he really is a funny guy.

Tom's not stupid, he opens this comedy DVD with some material about his famous Back to the Future role.  That really orients you quickly and you identify with him.  What important in comedy is that you create a persona..something people can identify with and care about.  Wilson does this masterfully, he definately uses his resources.   Tom moves on to discuss his childhood as an ackward kid and what it was like growing up.  You soon realize that his role as Biff was terribly ironic, because Tom couldn't be further from the truth.

The DVD features a 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer.  It looks perfectly crisp and the 5.1 sound is clear as day.  This disc offers some great extras, such an infamous youtube video Tom made years back and Inside the Artists Studio, a look at Tom's artwork!

The bottom line?  Tom Wilson is funny.  He's a clean comic, so you don't have to worry about the kids overhearing terrible curse words or vulgar situations.  I would definately pick this one up.  In fact, it'd make a nice Xmas gift!
