    My thoughts also. He may have a quirk now and again, but hardly a comedian :confused:

    I included him for his Think Tank CDs and shows he did. Not a stand up as his main career, but I doubt he did these for free.

    I saw Ricky Grover during fresher's week, I thought he was quite odd. My favourite stand up is Bill Bailey. I also love things like 'Mock the Week', where you get loads of comedians together all working off each other.

    I think you may mean 'revolves' and yes, I suppose it does given there's very little of merit outside London.

    Billy Connelly, Jack Dee, Robin Williams, Lee Evans, Jimmy Carr.

    plenty of others I'd watch to.

    Turns out Im going to see Omid Djalili in London today
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,328 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I had the misfortune of seeing that Omid Djalili on Davina McCall's unfortunate chat show - to say I cringed doesn't even begin to cover it.

    My faves have mostly been said: Bill Hicks, Billy Connolly, Ross Noble, Bill Bailey. I also just love Jo Brand and Victoria Wood.

    Not even that’s effective these days, the insolence is growing, so I’ve moved to the horse whip, that gets them going nicely.

    Yes but the stable master does moan so when I bring it back covered in blood. Its so hard to find the staff.

    It is, which is why I've virtually given up on native staff, they have clear ideas above their position (which is under my feet). You can get good people from Eastern Europe these days and if you then take their passport its easier to, motivate them.

    Ah I had a bad experience. Charming little family. Not too bright though. I may have gone a little over the top in my chastisement. Bodies were found. Questions asked. It was terribly embarassing.

    Four words - golf with Justice Smythe. He's a smashing chap. Awfully accomodating. Poor short game though. Damned bunkers.

    Well quite, it always pays to golf with those who can help you avoid little annoyances, trials, worker rights, rape allegations, pollution dumping, that sort of thing.
