Anyone know about this: http://www.timeout.com/london/comedy/event/141168/orangaid.html

Some good acts - Nina Conti is excellent, and Simon Munnery always worth seeing.

She is indeed - I first saw her quite a few years ago in the new act comp at Hackney Empire and found her funny but wondered if she could sustain the act beyond it's initial novelty - saw her full length show at Edinburgh last year and she definitely has.

I saw Lucy Porter at our local arts centre on Sunday night - she's a bit annoying actually - the guy with her, Math Brown was better. Going to see Ivan Brackenbury's Hospital Radio on the 4th June - I do love my comedy.


Favourite Stand ups as follows (seeing as we all like lists)

1. Billy Connolly (forever)
2. Eddie Izzard
3. Bill Bailey
4. that one - ooh you know his name, the one with the hair - geordie fellow
5. the one that smokes all the time and talks about guns , American guy
6. Russell Howard
7. Tommy Cooper
8. Daragh o'Briain
9. Paul Merton
10. Rufus Hound

There are loads more but this is just stand ups that I can think of

Number 5 is Ross Noble and number 6 is Bill Hicks, and they're both in my list as well :lol:

Daniel Kitson
Jason Byrne
Bill Hicks
Ross Noble
Stewart Lee
Reg D Hunter
Dylan Moran
John Hegley
Andy Zaltzman
Rich Hall

And I could go on and on and on...

Been to the last 10 Edinburgh Fringes, so I've seen a fair few :wink:

Daniel Kitson is a comedy genius, and I don't use that word lightly - if you get the chance, see him.
