A mixed bunch...

It was free, but still, a bit of thought could be given to editing. Highly visual aspects of the routines obviously don't come through, and some in the whole series (not just this set) really aren't that good. I wouldn't pay to see them all.

Dated

All really dated, one of which the comedian mentions the year, 2007!
Mildly amusing at best.

The first comedian (Ria Lina) is not funny at all.

She is just trying to say things to shock rather than being funny being sexist, racist you name it she has a go at putting people down and just making poor comments about people and there situation even having a go at people with a disability.

racial slur

Use of a racial slur by ria lina. I don't think this is in any way acceptable.
