    I watched Greg Davies in Oxford a few months back and he was absolutely superb. Well worth checking out on his current tour because I have a feeling he won't be playing small comedy clubs for much longer.

    I'm also off to watch Milton Jones in Oxford in March which I am immensely looking forward to.

    It was painful viewing, decided to see what all the fuss was about - I was somewhat shocked.

    As I understand it they had offers to write a sit com, unrelated to the Pappys shite club. Hard to believe after seeing the standard of material they've produced so far

    One thing I will say is that no matter how poor you may consider pappy's to be, isle of jintsy (?) is without doubt the worst tv comedy pilot I have ever seen.
    I'm looking California

    I'm feeling Minnesota

    I doubt it.

    Pappy's are truly awful, worse than the likes of Gina Yashere and Little Miss Jocelyn. Just shocking.

    Stephen Lynch is one of my favourites if you are talking of comedians that sing. Most of his stuff is on Spotify if you want to check him out.

    Great shout! His Special Olympics tune is brilliant. I had a pint w Tim Minchin and Sean Lock at the Carlsberg Comedy aftershow in July last year, nice guys. Tim is sound but his comedy is a bit lacking dontcha think?

    Milton Jones was as expected fantastic, and completely bonkers. Tough crowd though, and the support comic died horribly and had to cut his set short mid joke as he was getting so much abuse.

    He's doing nottingham, & I am thinking about going to see him. Bit of a trek though. I can't make up my mind whether I'd love or hate him.
    Search for his "3 jokes" on youtube...

    Jimmy Carr's new 2012/2013 tour goes on sale this Friday, although there is a presale tomorrow. Password is "PLEASE" I think.

    Seen him in Dudley not long ago, so funny and defiantly will see him again. Not for the faint hearted!

    Not in Wolverhampton until Feb and June 2013 tho! Going to wait to get tickets, no rush IMO.

    went to see Bill Bailey last night at the NEC. Funny guy. Wierdly, no big out & out belly laughs, but a lot of giggling.
    The man also deserves kudos for his musical talents too.

    I once spent a lovely summer at my Aunties in Manchester and spent weekdays helping out my Uncle, driving to pubs around the Lancashire/Yorkshire/Derbyshire area. He worked as van driver who supplied all the Regals/Bensons/Mayfairs for all the vending machines in the pubs in those areas.
    We visited a pub early one morning in Todmorden, near to Burnley.......My God.......the people actually looked like the people from League of Gentlemen. The Cleaners were cleaning blood from the floorboards in front of the bar, the owner was either hungover or psychotic and the scary looking Zombies who were shaking/queuing up outside for an early drink were far worse than anything in league of Gentlemen. A memorable Summer. I also visited a lot of the shithole pubs in and around Ewood Park and Barnsley (Oakwell?). To this day I am still afraid of women with big tattoos
