DVD Review: Why? (Aaron Wilburn)
Christian comedian Aaron Wilburn got his start as a Southern Gospel musician and songwriter, performing for several years with the Happy Goodmans Band and writing or co-writing songs such as “What a Beautiful Day,” “It’s Beginning to Rain,” “Home,” and “The Night Heaven Kissed Earth.”
His comedy career has had a boost since the advent of YouTube; videos of some of his routines have been popular enough to pick up 8 million hits.
The videography is decent. The lighting on the close-up shots of his face is superb. The lighting on the zoomed-out shots and the wide audience pans is decent but not great. But the audience closeups are inconsistent; some have decent lighting, but some are so dark that you can’t see the audience member’s face. Tip for video editors: If the closeup is so dark that you can’t see the person’s face, just don’t put it in.
One of the video highlights is his routine on dieting, leading up to his song “Dietin.” This particular routine is genuinely funny.
I must admit it was my first time to watch a full-length comedy video, so I don’t have much to compare it to, but I did find it enjoyable.
