Pretty sure I've seen it, was that The Stand as well? The material in 41st was weak I thought and the speed of his delivery was tedious. I have quite enjoyed his stuff previously, but I've maybe just had my fill now.

As always it'll be more enjoyable live I dare say.

Got Jeremy Hardy and Mark Steel to look forward to in the next couple of months at Warwick Arts Centre, where the tickets go up by excruciating amounts whilst the quality of fare continues to decrease. The rest of the forthcoming line-up is abysmal. Russell Howard and John Shuttleworth? No thanks.

Love going to the stand-up in the local area, but it's so hit and miss at times that I'm now cynical. And being cynical is not the best way to watch stand-up. Oh, and I think that Mark Watson's live shows are absolutely fantastic, accent and all. I'm sure the accent is merely a way of separating his alter ego from his true personality. And his books really don't work if you read them in a Welsh accent. I've tried.

I'd like to see Russell Howard live, but John Shuttleworth ain't my bag at all. Mostly I attend open-spot shows around here, though, but I think I'll invest in a few more professional bills from now onwards.

He's not a million miles away from Frank Sidebottom, really.

There's a few about on Soulseek if you catch it at the right times. I managed to get the podcasts and a couple of half shows from there a couple of days ago. If I manage to find any more I could always stick a couple of RARs up on megaupload or something.

I'd be interested in that if you can get them - he was the finest comedian i have ever seen and I can't wait for him to tour again

Get lost, Frank Sidebottom is as funny as cancer, as is Shuttleworth. I hate that character based shit

I just came in to this thread to mention this show.

I saw him a few months back at the Good Ship, one of the first Porthole comedy shows and he was terrific. Arrived late but all of that was forgotten instantly. Very rude, crude and not for the easily offended but he has great delivery and is genuinely funny. Hope you enjoy yourself tomorrow, I'll be there too and I'm sure I will ^_^

I know, the line up is always worth checking out for both established and newer acts. The organiser does a great job, but can be a tad annoying at times... ^_^

Anyone aware of where one could find versions of any Daniel Kitson gigs? I've a torrent which boasts a few but it seems to have lost all seeders. I've found this forum:

http://forums.hipini...f359c5381a5e83c

but it's set to admin approval for membership and it's no playing ball... Anyone?


Kitson is notorious for keeping out of the spotlight, so you will be lucky to find anything by him anywhere!

He is the best comic I have ever seen, so natural to it. Most of his shows are more theatre which I think suprises people but it really does work. Have you ever seen the video of him on blockbusters? ^_^

Other favourites of mine I find hard to pick out. I would definitely put Phil Kay very highly up there. He is fucking genius because his show is mainly improvised. On the plus side this means a new show every night, on the down side it means the shows are very hit and miss-last 2 years I saw him it was just wonderful, but this year was pretty poor. I also love Russell Howard, I think a lot of people are put off by his mainstream success but I saw him a lot at the festival when he was starting out. He compered a most of the late and live gigs a few years ago and I was always impressed by how quick thinking and clever he was.

The biggest disappointment for me has always been Bill Bailey. He has always been shit whenever I have seen him. His style works well on TV when he has a straight guy to play against, but on his own I really do find I lose interest eventually.

Scott Capurro is pure gay filth. He spent an entire gig just hitting on this one guy at the front. Usually picking on the crowd means the show is going wrong but it was utter genius and not mean at all - just a torrent of improvised anus related filth that had everyone in stitches.

That's the Daniel Kitson podcasts for now. I'll try and stick any other stuff up soon if and when it trickles slowly down the intertubes, but my connection's a wee bit snail like at the mo and will be untill I'm back to uni in a couple of weeks.

Kitson - Edinburgh 2005

It's a bit similar to the Cardiff gig though as that one was an Edinburgh warm up.

Well, AIDS jokes, maddy jokes, holocaust jokes - what wasn't to like? :wub: Seriously though, who'd ever admit to being a virgin in a comedy club - it was as if he WANTED the attention!

I managed to find part 1 of the show from the podcasts that was split into 4 parts, which I didn't have when I put the RAR up before.

Supposedly he's planning on releasing recordings of the last three stand up shows some point this year but I haven't heard much on that recently. It'd be nice if he had recordings of the Stories for the Starlit Sky gigs too as they were all cracking.

Kitson bootlegs seem to be very hard to get hold of these days, excepting those ones above (Hull, dancing, Edinburgh, Cardif Glee, etc).

Does anyone have any of his newer shows, or larger collections including other not already posted above? There must be some out there.
