DVD REVIEW: Christopher Titus: Love is Evol – Comedy is His Therapy!

“If you are in here tonight, never having contemplated suicide – you have never truly been in love,” states Christopher Titus as he opens his Comedy Central Valentine’s Day Special. “And if you are in here and have never contemplated murder,” he adds, “you have never been divorced!” Titus has become one of our premier comedians by turning his highly unorthodox life into comedy routines that leave “edgy” gasped in the dust. Love is Evol is no exception.

Love is Evol

Love is Evol deals with his divorce from his wife of fifteen years, that “demon slithering from the fiery depths of Satan’s anus – though for legal reasons, I have to call her Kate.” His detailing of the proceedings is without mercy – for both parties. It’s filled with sage wisdom on many subjects – including breast implants after five years, or more, of marriage. He also introduces a part of his character he calls his “inner retard” – which, when combined with his physical behavior, could be considered politically incorrect in the extreme. Then you listen to his inner retard’s musings and, as pessimistic as it is, it’s also at least as smart as Titus’ more “normal” self. At first you’ll laugh, then you’ll feel guilty, and then you’ll laugh some more.

The first half of Love is Evol deals with Titus’ divorce. The second half deals with his finding – miracle of miracles – his perfect woman and, even more miraculously, actually getting together with her in spite of his many and varied idiocies, which he describes in heart-stoppingly funny detail.

This DVD is not for the faint of heart, or the self-appointed arbiters of political correctness. Love is Evol could be injurious to their mental and physical health. For everyone else, it is quite possibly the funniest single comedy performance since his Norman Rockwell is Bleeding. And, as Titus would say, “No wussies!”

Features include: Titus vs. Cupid: Behind the Scenes at the Photo Shoot; The Fans Speak: Love on the Rocks, and Countdown to V-Day [Titus’ Valentine tips for guys].

Final Grade: A
