    I'll add Kevin James: Sweat the Small Stuff to the list. Comedy Central is selling it through their website but only on VHS. I'd love a DVD with extra material for this one.

    And the stuff on the other Al Discs is on the Weird Al: The Videos disc.

    From HBO

    How about the 2 John Leguizamo specials?

    isn't the Weird Al stuff out of print? (both discs)

    they were 2 of the few discs that went with my ex and I was dismayed to learn that they'd become OOP cause I'd planned on rebuying them someday for my collection.

    What? No-one's mentioned Bill Hicks yet?!
    There's a disc of his Revelations show available in the UK (which also contains a terrific documentary), but nothing else.
    There's more material available through the official website but it's on VHS, and, frankly the duplication quality was abysmal.
    What I'd love to see is a compilation of his appearances on the David Letterman show.

    -"The Pee-Wee Herman Show" (HBO)
    -This year's Robin Williams special that aired on HBO
    -"Fontaine-Am I Straight?" (Whoopi Goldberg's 1988 HBO special
    -"Joan Rivers & Friends Salute Heidi Abramowitz" (Released by Warner Home Video in 1985, but it was a Showtime production, so I think rights would be with Paramount Home Entertainment now)
    -"Dana Carvey-Critic's Choice" (HBO)

    Would Penn & Teller be considered comedians? I'd like to see some of their stuff on DVD.

    Sincerely,

    John Kilduff...

    Oh, a sailor travels to different lands, any place he pleases/And he's always careful to wash his hands so he don't catch no diseases (Paul Reubens as Pee-Wee Herman and Phil Hartman as Captain Carl in "The Pee-Wee Herman Show")

    I would love to have a Gilder Radner collection available on DVD. Would be nice to see a collection of her stuff along with the other SNL best of collections. It would be even better if it were a two disc set that was packed to the rim instead of a 90 minute release.

    Even better...have a portion of the proceeds go to Gilda's Club.
