I couldn't find a thread relating to live comedy shows on the forum, so I thought I'd start one.

What live comedy shows are people going to see/ have seen recently?

I'm going to see Noel Fielding on November 13th! I hope to see Gary Le Strange next week too.

I would also like to see the 'Cuckoo comedy night', where the stars of 'One flew over the cuckoo's nest' perform stand-up and improvised sketches!

Going to see Billy Connelly tomorrow night in London.

I hope he's good cos I've never seen him live before and I don't want my mum and dad to be disappointed as I bought them tickets for their anniversary!

Damn you wink.gif tongue.gif I didn't find out he was on until all the tickets were gone! He is supposed to be amazing live. Have fun!

I've still got withdrawl symptoms from comedic fun in Edinburgh.

Comics that must be seen live:

Rich Hall/Otis Lee Crenshaw
Ross Noble
Daniel Kitson
Boothby Graffoe
Jason Byrne
Milton Jones

If you get a chance to see any of these comedy gods, take it.

I'm going to see Dylan Moran's Monster II at the Wyndham's Theatre in London on Friday 12th November. Plus, I need to get tickets for Bill Bailey's Part Troll. It starts on Monday, but runs onto December 4th, so I may just wait until I know what I'm up to in future...

I saw Dylan the other week at the Newcastle comedy festival - he was brilliant

Watch out for the joke about the nuns - I nearly wet myself biggrin.gif

Plus he's very easy on the eye - yum smile.gif

Bill Bailey: Part Troll is great.


One of the best comedians I have seen in a long time, and the end song will be stuck with you for years to come . biggrin.gif

I second these. I'm sure the others are fantastic, but I haven't seen them. I saw Ross Nobel at a conference and his "Day in the Life of Craig David" sketch is still the funniest thing I have ever heard.

And if you can't get to see Rich Hall doing Otis Lee Crenshaw, I recommend the DVD - not as good a seeing him live but still an absolute belly laugh of a show.

Ooh - he's one I missed off my list - you'll enjoy it.

I've seen Dave Gorman - he's very good live cool.gif

I gave up on live comedy after I was denied permission to see Bill Hicks at the Royal Exchange in Manchester. I was a mere 13 years of age and my mum wouldn't let me go because the show started at midnight. Then he died. I have yet to forgive anybody in the world for that.
Jessopjessopjessop
It's very short notice, and you may not get tickets, but here's some info on Dylan Moran's gig TONIGHT!!

"Tuesday 26 October at 8pm

In preparation for his return to the West End in his show Monster, Dylan Moran, star of Black Books, tries out some new material and recounts some old material at Soho Theatre tomorrow night.

'You leave wishing there were more comics like him - intelligent, perceptive, subtle - while recognising that he's one of a kind.'
The Daily Telegraph, May 2004

Tickets
10 (8 concessions)

Looots of Comedy this week for me smile.gif
On Sunday I'll be seeing Dan and Danny's Live Ghosthunt
Monday the BBC new comedy awards and on Tuesday i'll be seeing That was then, this is now AND Mitch Benn ohmy.gif)

Saw Noel Fielding on Wednesday night - It all went horribly wrong for him and it was still one of the best sets i've ever seen.. and I see a hell of a lot of comedy.

Tommy Tiernan's playing Vicar Street, Dublin soon + also an Amnesty gig on the 28th Nov also in Vicar Street. He's the best comedian to come out of Ireland by far. Ever. And I mean, ever! I'll be there, so I will.

I'm not sure, i've seen him live three times in the last month AND spent two hours in a small room with him.... he might get a bit scared.

But Robin Ince is on the bill as well and i've not seen him, and Nat and Fee haven't seen him for ages... and he loves us.... so it might be really fun.


why let fear of being feard stop me?

I'll probably see you there...

I'll be the one with the fabulous hairdo and the bling...

Dave Gorman is going to be doing some book reading appearances around the country. See dates here.

Long time since this thread has been used.

Tonight I went to The Tattershall Castle on The Embankment. Saw Stewart Lee and Mark Thomas do an hour each. Both absolutely brilliant in their own ways. Stewart is one of my favourites [topped only by Sean Lock - who seems to have given up Stand up since getting regular TV work! - and perhaps Daniel Kitson] and was on top form. His style and delivery are a masterclass in "working the audience/gag" Brilliant.

Mark Thomas was also very very good indeed. The usual polemic but very funny and important work

...and all for 7

Marvellous

well thats a coincedence, i've just got back from the amersham in deptford, where i watched adam buxton. ( yup, him from adam and joe ). he was trying out his new edinburgh show "I Pavel", where he plays the role of "Pavel, the most passionate, most intense and least talented East European avant-garde artist of the last 50 years."

if you're going to the festival this year, this should be high on your list of stuff to see. character comedy plus some 'takeover tv' style video clips, including a fantastic star wars style commentary on the funeral of pope john paul. plus fart gags. top stuff.
superfurryandy
Comedy Store Players last night in Regents Park - usual stuff, but in a park.
The Mystery Machine
I'm in the same boat....5 long months till Ross Noble...bah!
Though I have got my first gig in Londons fashionable West End next Monday. It's only a matter of time before I'm being described as 'distinctly amusing' in Time Out, doing voiceovers for catfood adverts and being an annoying nob on Channel 4's top 100 vegetables.

But a nob isn't a vegetable... wacko.gif

Why go out for comedy when all you need to do is sit at a computer in your own home, reading an internet forum?

Paul Kerensa tomorrow night. Funny motherfucker.

The last funny thing I saw was The Runaway Lovers a couple of months ago. They're a sketch troupe type thing - genuinely weird and wonderful. The "Jeremy Clarkson" type character sticks in the mind along with the ingenious use of silly string and great wigs.
I've also been to many, many open mic nights and they just destroy my will to live.

i will indeed be checking out his edinburgh show, after all, he is my future husband. *sigh* He's also in the same venue i am, so I guess it'll be hard not to go and see it.

Tonight i'm ushering for Daniel Kitson at the castle in Nottingham. Should be a blast apart from the fact that its ridiculously cold here today. bah. Also, my ex had a dream the other night that Daniel Kitson was trying to pull me...so who knows, i may get lucky ....

Saw him in Edinburgh in a play what he wrote - appalling, it was - it starred the entity known as Iszi on Chortle - possibly the worst individual theatrical performance I've ever seen.

Really? Shit. I saw him support Kitson a couple of years back and he was ace. I'll let you know how it goes.
