Put a helmet on Dec 4, 2008
If six stars were available, I'd give it a six.
From watching this I have three suggestions:
Buy it Buy it Buy it
This is one of the funniest videos you'll watch in your lifetime. There is an old theory in comedy that the closer the joke is to the truth, the funnier it is. Brad's 'realizations' are just that. He has taken some of the most obvious realizations that those of us without his wit haven't made and brought them to the stage. Moreover, it's a video you can watch with the family (you can't say that about too many videos). The only better decision you could make in your life than buying this video is going to see him in concert.

Great for a good laugh Apr 16, 2007
We really enjoyed this DVD. It was even funnier the 2nd time we viewed the DVD. Brings up some very humorous points of view. Great for the whole family for a good laugh.
Fabulously Funny Along With Serious Content Mar 22, 2007
I had heard Brad Stine's comedy before and even had one of his other CDs. Then, I had the pleasure of seeing him in concert last week.
His performance was fabulous. He is not only hilarious; he is extremely bright and relevant.
After his show, I bought some of his material. One of the things I got was, 'Put A Helmet On'. What a find! It is full of extremely funny routines on a wide range of topics including: Animal Rights Activists, Bug Rights Activists, Christmas vs. Halloween, and many more.
Besides his humor, he makes very well thought out points about changes in our society over the last few decades in such areas as protecting us from ourselves (helmet laws), the self esteem movement in schools, the secularization of holidays (Christmas turning into winter holiday, etc.), and many more.
Although I love all of his humor and his criticisms of some of the things mentioned in the previous paragraph, my favorite part is actually a segment on Christian apologetics that lasted 5:37. In that bit, he did a superb summary of proofs for the Christian faith, the reliability of Scripture, etc. It is a segment that everyone should hear. Christians will enjoy a brief summary of evidences and skeptics will have great food for thought.
I highly recommend this CD.
Hilarious and intelligent Dec 29, 2006
Finally - a CLEAN comedian that is funny, and he is a Christian. Also, his comedy is intelligent. His material left me thinking long after watching it. I have watched this over and over with different friends and recommend it to everyone I know.
Well, I've got to balance this other fellow Jun 13, 2006
Most people like Brad Stein because he is a conservative Christian comic. I almost want to say that that's why I dislike him - but that would be me coming from my idealogical viewpoint, instead of just seeing how well he does what he does. So, I'll do the latter instead.
I must admit, there are some pretty funny moments in this DVD - although most of them are funnier in retrospect than at the time ("What about the TUNA getting caught in the tuna nets?"). Mr. Stein did have the good grace to send up some of his own kin, at least ("DON'T even TOUCH the COVER -- of the HARRY POTTER BOOKS!!!"), and, when he wasn't shrieking into the microphone and leaping all about the stage like either a) a man inspired by God or b) a loony - and let's face it, is there much of a difference? - he managed to be very funny indeed. However, what with the jumping and shrieking taking up so much of his time, the man's talents simply didn't show up much.
PS: In responce to the other reviewer in here - oh, yeah RIGHT, it sure takes a LOT of courage to be outspokenly conservative in our modern world. How did the comedian say it: "[American] news is balanced, it gives us George Bush's side and Dick Cheney's side...." I get really sick of people talking about how BRAVE Mr. Stein is for performing his material. I mean, for crying out loud, he's in a CHURCH! So brave to do Christian comedy in a church surrounded by hundreds of people! Maybe he should PUT A HELMET ON!
