  • don't think there is a thread on here for standup.....

    Been to a few gigs recently, Stewart Lee's latest tour was great as always. I'd love to see one of his now incredibly rare appearances with Richard Herring, though I might die from laughing....

    Saw Jerry Sadowitz at the weekend, it was equal parts hilarious and offensive, two people sitting in the row in front of us didn't even crack a smile for the whole 100 minute duration!
    Apparently he was going to get another series on channel 5 but they pulled the plug after he uploaded a picture of his cock onto his website!

    Richard Herring and Tim Vine next weekend, should be fun.

  • Eightball does stand- up, has/ does run clubs in Edinburgh,
    hes fucking rubbish though.
    be along in a minute.

    Was recommending him to a friend recently - know anywhere you can get DVDs of his stuff? Amazon only has one old VHS tape as far as I can tell (for 35 quid!)

  • Russell Howard is very good as is Alan Davies if he ever returns to the circuit.

  • There is almost nothing recorded from him apart from that one VHS as far as I'm aware, he seems to keep a total lock down of anything that pops up on the net too.

  • kind of redundant but i would have loved to see bill hicks, george carlin and lenny bruce

  • Bill would have got everyone rocking and riffing together,
    George would have cussed the whole gig down,
    Lenny wouldnt have given a f..k..
    maybe.

    Bollocks. :(

    Thanks anyway.

  • I saw John Cooper Clarke and Frank Sidebottom at the Bloomsbury Theatre at the weekend. JCC was excellent, his act is more anecdotal stories than poetry now and despite being ill he's bloody funny.

  • I went to see Stewart Lee in Greenwich the other day (got off my fat lazy ass too late to book for the two months he was in Soho).

    Pretty awesome stuff.

    My sister saw him in Brighton a few weeks ago, and ironically the comdey festival was sponsored by magners, so he had to do the whole show on a stage with a big magners banner behind him! hahaha.

    is there some stewart lee - magners connection that i'm unaware of?

  • A huge chunk of his latest show is about magners and their advertising campaign

    Russel Howard is bland yet smug. WHy? I hate all these comedians whose only joke seems to be funny juxtapositions, a common one being posh people talking street or visa versa. Also young comics talking about how funny something their mate did is.

    stuart lee is top

  • can't stand Russel Howard, his eye's put me off

  • Stand-up comedy = Bull poo

    I make my own at home... Cheaper and so much tastier...

    I don't find him bland or smug. There's quite a few good socio-political observations in his material making fun of the madness of how our society works. If he does anecdotal material it's usually about him and his family but again often observational. I can't say that I've ever heard his posh-people talking street. Mind you, it's difficult to talk street when you have a broad west country accent so maybe I missed it. His stuff on Mock The Week usually keeps me laughing though.

    Russell Brand, now there's someone smug and bland. Definitely wouldn't pay money to see him.

    They are a little bit freaky, mind you, comedy is more than just about the eyes.

  • Can't stand Michael McIntyre either, his hair puts me off

  • Doug Stanhope anyone?

    I had a 'comedian' having a go at me at a show once, just because I didn't laugh the all time. I was in the 1st row.
    He was rubbish, then decided to make me the laughing stock of the room, dbl fail.

    Anyway, Superdecided just made my week by posting this.
    I swear I had some wee drops in my pants after watching it the 1st time.
    And he's NOT a comedian, he's a 'beatboxer':

    YouTube- Worlds WORST Beatboxer

  • milton jones pure class

    although not specifically standup ... did anyone see last nights newswipe with charlie brooker

    that was one funny assed show

    taking the piss of celebraties .. i especially like the sky news interview with jude law and him explaining the in depth security situation out there

    and the ginger spice being united nations goodwill ambassador it appeared as though her presence in iraq somehow defused the tense situation that was over there and led to peace talks between two warring factions ..... yeah right ginger you solved the iraq problem sure sure

  • Kinda wish Hugh Dennis did standup. Bloody love him on mock the week
