    I want to say Yoshi Obayashi but his only decent video on YouTube is a clean set. Check out his appearances on a million podcasts though, some of the most brilliant deviant stories I've heard.

    Casual bump to mention that Jim Jefferies is doing shows in Manchester and London at the end of next month.

    I've still yet to see Kitson do one of his own shows, the selfish bastard.

    Kitson is definitely one of my favorite comedians. Seen him live a few times, most memorable was when he was meant to be performing in a line up of 3 but had the shits so the compere got him on the phone for a while just to make him feel bad.

    A short time later he came to town and did a few hour unscripted set for free for all the people who had booked the original show. Patchy but brilliant.

    John Oliver off The Daily Show
    If you don't listen to The Bugle podcast, you should.
    I don't, but I will! He frequently has me in bits on this show, although the "Brit in America" thing can grate after a while. That'll be him tailoring to the audience though.
    I know, I know, the post I am replying to is from ages ago. That's OK, the show I am talking about is from ages ago as well - a couple of years back I saw Andy Zaltzman (John Oliver's Bugle co-host) do a show in The Stand Glasgow; one of the Scottishest audiences you could find, and despite being very English and having quite a big of material about cricket he still went down very well. I'd definitely recommend him.

    The Zaltz always strikes me as someone who should be funnier than they actually are. His material, as far as I can tell, is hilarious, surreal and often satirically spot-on, but I tend to find myself appreciating it, rather than properly rofling. Delivery maybe?

    Just tried watching Kevin Hart and ... I'm not finding him very funny. :(


    Any good recommendations?

    There is a new Aziz Anzari performance up on Netflix, but check out his Buried Alived first, as I reckon its of a higher quality.

    Cheers I will do and maybe I spoke too soon as Hart has kinda found his range talking about his mothers funeral.

    I really recommend this new Tiernen Douieb show.

    It's only a couple of quid and he is quite good. Bit of politics, bit of silly.

    99.9% of stand-up comedians are bobbins.

    Exceptions - Bill Hicks, Louis CK, Stewart Lee

    Nope. You should listen to the WTF podcast. He really gets into the history and the craft of standup and showcases the quality from lots of different kinds of comedians.

    30 though.

    I can't justify spending that.

    Good call gents. Watched this the other week and thought it a good performance and then today he's announced as the replacement for Jon Stewart on the daily show!

    You should be agents or something :)

    I was a big fan of Stanhope from Screenwipe but I saw his stand up a few years back and it was terrible. He's good in small doses but after an hour or so he had totally lost the crowd and was so drunk you could hardly understand him.

    I haven't seen a really good stand up for years.

    There are some great comedic actors that I love watching but the last stand up I was in hysterics over was Chris Rock.

    Peter Kay. If you want to remember stuff, he's brilliant!

    Rufus Hound. If you want to hear where PES_Fanboy lifts his jokes from.
  • Deleted user 30 March 2015 15:58:57
    I don't know Rufus Hound, I think I stole the Peter Kay observation from Richard Herring though.
