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.

Is super busy hospital the computer game ?
Yep :lol:

I love me some Patton Oswalt but I find him very inaccessible to most people.  You really have to have a certain sense of humor to really get him.

He's in a movie that gets its DVD release in Jan too that looked really f***ing good.  It's called Big Fan (and about the Giants, Mike O0 ).  It's at the top of my Netflix queue so as soon as it gets released I can watch it.  Really stoked.

Big Fan looks like a hell of a movie. I'd love it if Patton makes it as an actor.

Especially if he can make it in a movie like that.  He looks like he can do the serious stuff though so I am excited.

You can't beat a good laugh!

Seen Lee Evans 4 times, Chubby Brown, Bobby Thompson (I was little, and my dad owned the venue, otherwise I wouldn't!), Jethro and Ross Noble.

Been a busy year this year, as it has turned into a bit of a hobby. This year; went to the Newcgastle/Gateshead Comedy Festival closing night, seen Ross Noble twice, Rob Brydon twice, Al Murray, Jimmy Carr, Rhod Gilbert, Russell Howard, Jason Manford, Marcus Brigstock, John Bishop, Alun Cochrane, Michael McIntyre, Ricky Gervais and Stewart Francis.

Got tickets for next year to see Lee Mack, Jason Manford, Peter Kay, Kevin Bridges, Dave Gorman, Sean Lock, Frankie Boyle and Mark Watson.

The Bish was mint, Rob Brydon was a surprise (didn't know what to expect, was brilliant), Al Murray was possibly the best, Russell Howard much better than I expected, as was Rick Gervais. Ross Noble was good, in fact, thought they were all great, with the single exception of Marcus Brigstock, who I though was utter s****. So much so, that I walked out at half time. He was w***. The only reservation I have about next years gigs is Dave Gorman. Not sure about him, but will give him a go (had the same feeling about Russell Howard, but he was very good, and I will go the next time he is up here.)

Stand ups on my 'want to see list' are Harry Hill, Dave Spikey, Micky Flanagan, Milton Jones, Paul Tonkinson, Tom Stade, Tim Vine, and after seeing her on Live at The Apollo, Sarah Millican.

Any other recommendations people?

Dave Spikey is very good...avoid Patrick Mc Guinness,a burning orphanage is funnier than him,Daniel Kitson is very good too,though I've only seen him on Youtube.

I found Dave Kitson pretty entertaining on the 20th.

Can't see where you're coming from. I saw him this year and really enjoyed the show. I thought it was well worth the relatively cheap ticket price and there were plenty of laughs in there. I'm surprised that you liked everyone but him TBH.

Must just be my sense of humour, tbh. Not being religous, I should have had an inkling of what was in store with the 'God Collar' title, and most of it just went over my head, and I honestly didn't laugh once. Also, a lot of it was political, referring to The Guardian, The Independant and such, and again, I am not into political jokes. It was simply a mis-match for me, but it was the only blot on an otherwise excellent year of comedy. You can't win 'em all!

first off don't put noble and mack in the same group.

secondly.....stewart lee is weird, his material is fantastic, if only someone else done it as i constantly have the desire to stamp on his eyes.
Bullshitters misrepresent themselves to their audience not as liars do, that is, by deliberately making false claims about what is true. In fact, bullshit need not be untrue at all.

Rather, bullshitters seek to convey a certain impression of themselves without being concerned about whether anything at all is true. They quietly change the rules governing their end of the conversation so that claims about truth and falsity are irrelevant.

I like a sarcastic, self deprecating comic with some observation humo(u)r tossed in. No music. Nothing worse than a comic with an acoustic guitar.

Ross Noble is my current favourite stand up.

I miss Billy Connelly being at his peak though. The best there has ever been for me. The "Audience with" show is probably my favourite piece of all.

Anybody see Jon Richardson at the Live Theatre before Christmas? It was a bargain at £10 a ticket, he's a great natural comedian.

Gervais without a doubt, Jimmy Carr is an unfunny tosser.
