Here I am, exploring a hugely important part of the world: comedy.
For the record, my favourite comedian is Lee Mack; my favourite double act is Armstrong and Miller; and my favourite British comedies are Not Going Out and An Idiot Abroad. The Simpsons and The US Office are the best American comedy shows, and they don’t have much competition. I know; controversial.
My first comedy review, way back in September 2010, published by Guide2Bristol, for whom I write a regular comics column. It really started the ball rolling…
Bristol247 published this review of Armstrong and Miller’s fantastic show based on their amazing sketch show.
My first preview and published article for The Weston and Worle Mercury.
This would’ve been in-print if it weren’t for tickets selling out so fast. Still, online is better than nothing!
A second review for Bristol247.
Lee Mack’s stand-up simply cannot be beaten. When he tours again, you should be willing to give your left arm to get tickets. Or £20. Whichever, really.
Some classic comedy. Slapstick gets a lot of… uhm… shtick, but it’s the foundation of everything we see today. Plus it’s funny. And isn’t that what comedy’s about?!
Another published preview, this time of Ed Byrne. It’s really important to keep your eye on upcoming events in your area.
Sadly, I missed out on this show, but I recently caught it on DVD – definitely one to watch.
Most would just take out an ad in the paper. Stephen Merchant dedicates a whole tour to finding the love of his life.
A big ol’ feature celebrating a big ol’ anniversary. Fingers crossed I’ll be contributing more to The British Comedy Guide soon…
A preview article for The Mercury; and no, I didn’t take the picture. That’s a bit of a typo. And the online article? Yeah, it’s the wrong by-line. I believe the kids these days would say:
I guess some would find it funny. Not me, though; I don’t have a sense of humour.
