I am new to the comedian Ralphie May, but boy I am super glad I was introduced. He is one funny son-bitch, dirty as hell, but super funny. In “Too Big to Ignore”, which is his record breaking fourth Comedy Central Special, he leaves no stone unturned. The special is also an amazing 108 minutes, which is extremely long for comedy act. What I also liked was that it was uncut and raw. If you haven’t heard of Ralphie May, this is a must to check out. You will not be disappointed.

He seriously covers everything and nothing is safe including politics, race, religion and of course his family. I think I almost fell out of my car when Ralphie paused for a minute, looked around laughing and said “I wish they are just jokes”, while telling a story about his family. This guy is constantly touring and if you can get a chance to catch this guy don’t miss it. I will be attending the show myself when he heads around to Flordia. He even jokes about that he looks exactly like Chaz Bono, aka Cher’s daughter/son. I couldn’t look at his the same way. What a riot!

The only extra included on this is a brief five minute look behind-the-scenes featurette. Even though only five minutes it is pretty entertaining. I would have like to seen any extended scenes if possible but I doubt this show actually had any. If you are looking for a good time and some great laughs, this DVD will not disappoint at all. Also now, I am officially a life-long fan of Ralphie May.
