18 Stone Of FunBy Gareth Sutcliffe from Oldham, England , 06 Dec 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]ALRIIIIIIIGHT!! I enjoyed the series 18 Stone of Idiot but it was on at a difficult time for me to be truly paying attention, at 10.30 on a Friday night is when the weight of the week is starting to finally catch up with me; So the release of this DVD lets me catch up with all the stuff that I missed/fell asleep through. I appreciate that people who don't like Johnny Vegas will not be swayed in the slightest by this release but if you like his stand up & his TV interviews you are going to LOVE this. The DVD is a 2 Hour long 'Best Of' from the series which cuts out the Misses and keeps the funniest parts. The extra's are very good too with an extended version of his trip to the Sky poker competition & My favourite the celebrity Lock-In shown in its entirety. This DVD ran me through a set of different emotions, It made me laugh, feel sick, it shocked & disgusted me at some points, but all in the name of entertainment, thoroughly enjoyable... If this DVD was a member of the Power Rangers It would probably be The Yellow one/Sabre Toothed Tiger.

18 Stone Of IdiotBy a customer from Durham , 05 Oct 2008So this is the best bits from his channel 4 show?, a truly dreadful DVD. You need to be an idiot to watch this, insult your audience and guests swear a lot, repeat for six shows, release a DVD, job done. Worse thing I have ever watched, never got any better, don't bother total waste of time.

amazing in places - you just cant believe some of it!
painful & sadBy a customer from New Milton , 20 Nov 2007I like Johnny Vegas a lot. I have seen some of his stand-up appearances and he is a very talented comedian. He is also excellent in 'Ideal' and, in 'Bleak House' he demonstrated that he is a very good actor too. I watched the first few episodes of '18 Stone of Idiot' when it was on the TV and I just found it painful and distressing. I'm not an expert but I genuinely think Johnny was undergoing some sort of breakdown during this series. His behaviour, in my view, displayed such a degree of self-loathing and sadness that I'm surprised someone didn't intervene. This sorry spectacle was made all the worse by the fact he seemed to delight in behaving in this way in front of an audience (seemingly to make the degradation and humiliation all the more complete). If Johnny heads down this road again I only hope he has friends and family who care enough about him to intervene.
a comic 'genius' when soberBy a customer from London , 24 Mar 2007Vegas is natually a funny man, described recently by Dustin Hoffman as a 'poet'. However, without a polished act, stretched over a show he resorts to exploiting himself which comes over as pitiful and awkward at times. A few clips were very funny but many were just pointless. Drunken ranting is just not funny beyond a point. Nonetheless good voyeuristic value for some.
