Is this an old video converted to DVD?

I saw the demo on YouTube as well. I read the back of the actual DVD.
I decided to pass on this.

I wasted enough time(and money) watching this dvd so I don't want to go into great detail here and waste even more time but let me just tell you to steer very clear of this offering!

I wonder if this was Mr. Blum's first time performing some of these effects? They have zero presentation(or comedy) and there is no reason for anyone in the audience to care about anything he is doing because he doesn't give them anything to work with. He stumbles over words and the routines are filled with "uhs" and "ums". I thought he was a professional performer? Shouldn't these routines be polished? He took effects that are not his and basically butchered them and made them harder to follow. If he thinks he has added anything to what is already out there then he needs to think again. Seriously, this is the question that people need to ask themselves before they release ANYTHING! Am I adding to what is already out there? SIMPLE QUESTION GUYS! I was confused as to what was even happening in some of the effects. I could pick apart each effect but its not worth the effort...Pm me if you need more details.

I am sorry to be so blunt but I just get sick of everybody and their mom thinking they have a right to "release" "their" stuff. The stuff on here isn't his and he is not a breakthrough performer by any means so why would you purchase this let alone watch it?

One other thing...he includes tips on making a living performing stand-up. Most of his tips are common sense or re-hash stuff most have heard but there was one thing I had never heard before. He said that if you are going to work a restaurant you should be able to come and go WHENEVER you want! If you want to come in on a Sunday, fine. Monday and tuesday, fine. Not at all for two weeks, fine. LOL You might think he was joking, he's not! I have been working restaurants for a long time and I have never heard or even thought of doing something as ridiculous as this for obvious reasons. He says its because of conflicting outside gigs. To combat this you simply work it out with the manager or owner that your outside gigs are bread and butter and if you have one come up you will find a suitable sub.

Again, steer clear...

As Hart previosuly mentioned, this video is awful. Stay clear from it.
