Some skank we have picked up from the big market, with my looks we are going to be hard pushed getting anything more than half decent (at best).

Don't worry we can get lots of cider in.

Lee Evans is a massive cock but I think he's bloody hilarious.

Saw Stewart Lee last night in the Tyne Theatre for £15. He was brilliant. I can't understand why he's not more well liked. His retort to Frankie Boyle's "you can't be a comedian after you hit 40" was excellent and his bit on Magners cider was quality. In fact, it was just quality all the way through. Really good value.
I've seen quite a few comedians lately.

Marcus Brigstocke- lots of laughs. Another one who I think is underrated.

Michael McIntyre- very funny but I think he was better last year.

Eddie Izzard- slightly disappointing but I may not have been in the mood for it that night.

Ricky Gervais- started slowly I thought but when he picked it up he was very good. Also, supported by Stewart Francis who, in his own right, is well worth going to see.

Not seeing anyone else until Lee Mack next year now.

Also, can I just point out that saying that you don't think a comedian is funny is not the same as being intelligent? It is, in truth, not indicative one way or the other on your intelligence.

EDIT: It's not aimed at anyone in particular. I've just read some reviews of some of the shows I've seen and get the sense that the authors consider sneering to be some kind of wonderful example of their own wit and brilliance.

Loved the last live show he did. "Hey, you're that nutter off the telly"...

Pretty good.

Jimmy Carr just cracks me up.

Possibly my favourite comedian at the moment.  See he's sent The Mail ape-s*** again :lol:

Love Stewart Francis, but thought a live show migth get a bit boring one liner after another.

Gash?

Saw Simon Amstell a couple of weeks ago. One of the very best standup comedians around.

I look f*** all like Jack f***ing Dee!  :rant:
Had a few dances off her when I've been in Blue velvet with friends. She's one of the ones who will push her fanny in your face, usually I like that but hers smells f***ing rotten. Only had dances off her because she agreed to take less money for the dances when me and my mate said we were skint.

I was a pure creep when I was a kid tbf. Used to spunk in deoderant can lids too

Just watched Jason Manford live at the Apollo, heard a few of the jokes before but very funny none the less.

Is it just me, or is there something of the old Jimmy Tarbuck about that Jason Manford?

I think Ross Noble is fantastic tbh, seen him at Newcastle not long ago and really enjoyed it.

Stewart Francis who does all the one liners is great too.
