All round good egg John Doran revisits one of my favourite pieces from the much missed Plan B Magazine in today's Quietus. Think we may have covered this before but definitley worth a link I thought. http://thequietus.com/articles/11439...-of-bill-hicks

Im off to see Lee Hurst tonight.
Mother in Law bought me, the wife and her tickets, so its free.
I vaguely remember him being on They Think Its All Over, no recollection of him actually being funny though :/

Off to see Louis CK tonight at the O2. Shite venue for comedy but have tickets near the front so hopefully the dome won't ruin it. Otherwise massively hyped

I was there too - really solid set, but as you say, peculiar place for a stand up.

Crowd was completely mixed, not what I was expecting but then it was a 12,000 ticket gig. Agree with nick on a solid set. Bit of a dip in the middle but last joke was a classic Louis punch in the face, balls and asshole.

Went to go and see Stewart Lee tonight. Defo worth seeing while hes on.

Lost at bit of momentum towards the end because he was totally freewheeling.

At the start, we put our coats in at the weird little booth which doubled as a bar and there was also a sign up saying Stew would be signing merchandise there after. As we got up, I said 'I bet there's a massive queue to get coats because he's signing stuff'.

There wasn't a queue, but there was also nobody other than Stew in there. He looked a bit put out but eventually got my coat.

There's been some kind of comedy book fest in Ealing all week. Of course, I missed it all.

I went to Angel Comedy at the Camden Head in Islington again on Saturday. It's free and always worth it even though the quality is variable.

This time among others Daniel Simonsen and Glenn Moore played, and they were both great.

I'd definitely recommend it for comedy fans. Even if it's shit it's still free, and there's been at least one great act every time I've been.

yesterday evening - and that was the best standup I've seen in a really long time!*

Why have they banned him smoking and drinking??


*..oh, also watched some Dave Chapelle the other day which was also very good in a way, but not as much class as Moran...

Was anyone at Monty Python last night? If so, what time did they take the stage? I'm going to be pushed to get there on time this evening.

thanks
