Ive just spent alot of time in a comedy tent. I didnt expect to like Russell Kane and he was incredible talking about teenagers especially young men and what discussions we should be having regarding respect. And the theme of the day seemed to be Women have hair! Write it in bold letters and stick it on the top of their computers so that when they are surfing the net they will be constantly reminded. I thought he was great for knocking down stereotypes (abig slap on the wrist for me for assuming he was gay) Ed Bryne also incredible. And of course Sarah Keyworth. Im not usually one for comedy but i laughed til I cried and it was so refreshing.

(a big slap on the wrist for me for assuming he was gay)
That assumption, and people making it about him, used to be one of his stand up themes. I haven’t seen him recently but I think his Dad, and the way he was (alpha make, silverback, the wife’s the ‘little woman’ type) had a big impact on how he approaches life and his opinions now.

And I can see why he keeps getting confused with Grimshaw😃

@EachandEveryone If I want to a comedy gig and they were talking about stuff like that I'd be asking for a refund.

Well it was very pc. I dont know if they were jumping on the bandwagon or not.

David O’Doherty, very positive, warm and lovely. V funny.
Hening Wehn, clever and witty.
Neil Delamere, great storyteller, really funny observational stuff.

I’d like to see Mae Martin.

Bo Burnham, quite disturbing at times and so creative.

I like Russell Kane, he's a bundle of energy.

Also, Simon Evans, seen him live a couple of times now.
