Comedy DVDs are hopping across the pond, as post-Xmas returns indicate that sales of live comedy films spiked way up in the UK gift-giving season. Releases from comedians like Eddie Izzard, Michael McIntyre, and Russell Howard all saw a 38% spike in sales, as relative to figures from last year’s holiday shopping season; a possible indication that the flailing DVD industry may be tossed a life line after all.
Could this be the cannonball that effectively sinks pirate downloading? Er, maybe not, but we’re still pumped to see some of our favorite Brit funny faces reaping the returns they deserve. Cheers, boys and girls.
