Ross Noble is funny but he goes on and on with the same bloody gag for far too long. That thing he did at the Apollo about "meat on your face!" stopped being funny after about 2 minutes, he used it for nearer 15.

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 saw him too, he was excellent.  The rant about Top Gear had me in stitches.

Ross Noble is ChezGiven's doppelganger, I swear down. Well, he would be if ChezGiven's hair was the same length. :razz:
Whether it's God or the bomb
It's just the same
It's only fear under another name
And the corporate snakes coming in to feed
On that pathetic fact known as human greed
Skin and bone being raked over those hot coals
This dump never seems to give time for human soul

I'm going to the Hyena next Thursday for my birthday. Never heard of any of the comedians that are on though.

Anthony King, David Hadingham and Zeron Gibson - anyone seen any of them before?

The only one that I can find any footage of is Zeron Gibson and he's pretty s***!

I Can't stand Lee Evans. Whenever I say that I always seem to be the only person in the room who thinks he's just not funny.

I've seen Al Murray live (about six years ago, before he hit mainstream) and he was brilliant. Jimmy Carr cracks me up, seen him live once but watch the DVD's quite often, they never get old. I really like Gervais' stand up. I've not seen any others live but a good stand-up dvd is always on my christmas list. Dara O Briain's 'talks funny' is very good.

I have my tickets already to see Peter Kay in April. I do love all his old stuff but hope he has some new gags this time round.

My mate sings all the backing vocals on that. Would never listen to it mind, haven't listened to Moyles for the best part of 5 years, can't imagine it being anything but gash.

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?
No Manford is actually funny.

Notice he's "parodied' Guns Don't Kill People, Rappers Do.  Not sure how parodying a parody works, but hey.

He's great and quite a decent player apparently. He was funny in Phoenix Nights as the barman.

Aye he's class, he won the Perrier Award one year I think. 

Just found this off an old Steve Coogan DVD as well:

I love Demetri Martin.  There's a fair bit on YouTube I think, that's how I became familiar with him.

I like stuff like "For Christmas someone bought me some pyjamas with pockets in them.  Which is cool, because I used to have to hold stuff when I slept".

Guitar stuff is pretty cool aswell, that's wear thr pyjama thing is from.  :lol:

Aha, that'll be why then - I watched his stuff on YouTube a couple of years ago I think.  I love the guitar stuff, and I love the visual stuff he does with graphs, etc.  He had a proper show on in America - it's on my computer somewhere and I watched a couple.  I wasn't that impressed as a lot of it seemed re-hashed from his stand-up and I'd seen nearly all of the stand-up stuff, but I mean to watch the rest of the show at some point and I think he's a big talent.  Some of his jokes are really, really clever.

Anyway, off to bed, laters.

Nice one, you'll probably be able to tell me what show the stuff on the flipchart is on where he talks about men fighting men with pillows=gay, man fighting pillow=crazy etc. :lol:

Well I've just fallen in love with you two, he's one of my favourite comedians knocking about, his piece with lots of one liners, about naming 'Oranges before Carrotts' and 'Super Busy Hospital.' Just have me in tears.
