Evening chaps (and chapesses, you'll find no sexism here),

I was at a comedy gig from the if.comedy award winning David O'Doherty on Saturday, which nearly caused a facial injury I laughed so much.

On the back of that I was just wondering what your favourite comedians are, or if you fellows have any reccommendations for people to see. I need more comedy folks!

One man I saw this year that made me laugh hard: Stewart Lee

Check him out on youtube, plus if you haven't seen his 90's Comedian dvd get it off Amazon or cheaper at http://www.gofasterstripe.com

He has other DVDs out too but that is the best one.

One man I want to see: Andrew Lawrence.

I saw a clip of him on Paramount Comedy, and there are a few bits on youtube. Weird but very funny.

Here are some links:

I would recommend the recently departed George Carlin, but I don't imagine going to see him would be a very entertaining event any more.

One that crops up around here every now and then is the Treason Show, which is very amusing, in fact they'll be in Hemel this weekend, which is no use to you whatsoever I;m sure. They mostly lurk in Brighton I believe.

Hicks is prob my favourite, but the last CD to have me laughing uncontrollably was Woody Allen - Stand up comic. It's a collection of his '60s routines, and absolutely hilarious.

I'm off to see Frankie Boyle on 17/12 and he is supposed to be more caustic live than he is on Mock The week so hoping he is. Paul Tonkinson is probably the funniest comedian I've seen live though.

I've always loved the Bills, and I'm loving Stewart Lee now, nice selection chaps.

I've also decided to go see Ed Byrne live next week if possible.

I'm a huge fan of Mark Thomas - his comedy product series was excellent. He's also so very passionate about his causes - well worth catching.

Stewart Lee is brilliant. I loved Fist of Fun and TMWRNJ which he did with Lee Herring. Saw him earlier this year do a brief set at Latitude - he was promptly followed by the worst comedian I've ever seen. A Danish chap who got booed off.

Daniel Kitson also entertaining - entertaining observations of the world and his life. Always funny and often leaves you with a good feeling about the world when you leave.

I must also mention Elvis Mcgonagall. He's great - listen to "call me Dave" wonderfully funny and inventive poet.

Rob Newman's still good live - his Planet B TV series was bit shakey, the stuff worked better in stand up.

I took the missus to see these two in Nottingham a couple of years ago - they were both brilliant live. Erica, who was very dubious before hand, was laughing like a drain (proper throw your head back stuff) within 30 secs of Mark Thomas coming on stage - Rob Newman took a bit longer to 'set the scene' but then the laughs just kept coming. I would wholeheartedly recommend BOTH these two.

Also, we went to see Dylan Moran a while ago - very, very funny.

Very Happy Laughing

I went to see the Mighty Boosh on Tuesday just gone.
They were alright like, but the show was somewhat marred by the giant man in front of me with the giant head and the giant ears who kept waving himself about and raising his arms all willy nilly; also by a young lady behind me who was enjoying herself FAR TOO MUCH.

Missus! The curtains opening does NOT CONSTITUTE A JOKE!!!
