I love Bill Bailey, his DVDs are incredible.
Absolutely... I bought one of my friends his Part Troll DVD for his 18th birthday a few years ago. Now I wish I'd bought it for myself, as every time I go into HMV they don't have a copy.
I saw him live last November but as it was a big arena (in Glasgow) its difficult to be overwhelmed with laughter, naturally on TV the performer is much closer.
Yeah, kinda ironic that. I've been to some gigs where the experience has been similar.
I want to see more Dylan Moran too, I've only seen snippets :(. But he seems like he'd be good live.
I have his Monster stand up on my iTunes (audio only, sadly), but it's a great set, I highly recommend it. I've listened to it many many times and it still makes me laugh. I've also seen that particular stand up on TV a few times.
I've not liked what I've seen.
But I wouldn't say I'm into his style of comedy in the first place.
No... it's just a bit weird. Not my thing, TBH. But hey, to each their own and all that.
I've realised I've not mentioned my favourite stand ups, so here goes:
I quite like the noble-meister. First stand up of his I saw was a late-night TV spot during a lads night... we were all pretty drunk (and I suspect so was Noble, or maybe it was just the act), but it was hilarious.
Gervais is the ONLY stand up act I've ever seen live. He was brilliant though, I literally ached from laughter after that show. *Nostalgia*
And I've just noticed... that my alias is spookily similar to yours... O_O
Together, with our similar aliases, we shall pioneer this club ;P
