Izzard rules <img src=smilies/icon_smile_big.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> I´ve got Glorious aswell. Are you talking about stand up comedy like Ricky Gervais and Eddy Izzard or comics like &quot;Dexter&quot; and &quot;Cow &amp; Chicken?

I too am a massive Izzard fan....I adore Glorious...but I do feel that he peaked a little after that. Glorious though was truly amazing. Huddadada. I saw Lee Evans last year in &quot;The Producers&quot; in the west end and he just blew me away. I´ve seen his stand up on tv before, but its not until he´s right in front of you that you realise just how much energy the man puts into his act. The guy is amazing. And a completely different style, yet mind-blowingly original and intelligent, Bill Bailey is amazing live. I think he´s probably my favourite out of the lot - its between him and Peter Kay for me. I actually cried with laughter so much that I pulled a muscle in my side last time I saw Peter Kay. His comedy is infectious. Oh. And danger could be my middle name. But its John. And don´t call me Shirley.

Bill bailey, isn´t he from black books? Why yes he is. Brilliant man, gotta give him heaps of credit. Dylan Moran is another good one (mainly cos i love black books, but thats me) For some strange reason i find chris rock funny too. and i cant think of why... -:- You Wanna Revolution?

I was gutted when they stopped making Black Books. I loved that series. I´ve never seen Dylan Moran live though - whats his act like? A similar character to BB?

I thought you meant comics like this... <img src=´http://homepage.ntlworld.com/tawakalna/pics/Resize%20of%20comic-eagle-1953-nov-05-v01-25.jpg ´> keepint to the topic, I was fortunate enough to see Frankie *oo-er missus* Howerd not long before he died. I thought i was going to suffocate with laughter, which would have been rather ironic seeing as he didn´t actuallly finish telling any jokes. The only time I´d ever seen him live before was wehn i was a kid and my folks took us to a show when we were on holiday on Jersey (that Channel Island Jersey, not New Jersey) but my mum stormed out because she couldn´t stand vulgar humour. I thought he was jolly funny though! IWe went to Blackpool to see a comedy extravaganza at the North Pier - didn´t expect much - again the whole thing as ruined by my mother who argued and complained all the way there, during the show and all the way back. But, it was actually great fun - Frank *It´s the way i tell em* Carson, Norman *testing* Collier, Charlie Drake for some benighted reason, and Little &amp; Large - who were very good on this occasion and did obscene things with Sooty. The highlight of the show was Rod Hull &amp; Emu, who excelled himself in violence and insanity - Emu, not Rod Hull. My brother even got to pet and stroke Emu, which was of course highly dangerous. He didn´t like my mum though, she got a bent beak snarl, but nothing more - lucky for Emu! <img src=´http://homepage.ntlworld.com/tawakalna/pics/TVTimes_Emu.jpg ´> good old Emu! Eddie Izzard - <i>le singe est dans l´arbre </i> - his useless school French phrase that you´ll never use. however.... in a zoo in Tunisia, I was actually able to use this phrase quite appropriately, much to the merriment of the other English people present.

lol. i love that you got to use that phrase <img src=smilies/icon_smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> I too got to see Mr Titter Ye Not Howard before he passed on. He was absolutely hilarious and incredibly endearing to boot. I remember one holiday as a kid, in Torquay, my parents took me to see Cannon &amp; Ball - who I thought were hilarious at the time. But I had a similar &quot;mum&quot; experience to Taw, where she wanted to get up and leave during the support act. Apparently she had no time for vulgarities <img src=smilies/icon_smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> Unfortunately we didn´t leave and nowadays I am forced to admit that I saw Michael Barrymore &quot;before he was big&quot; <img src=smilies/icon_smile_tongue.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> I also saw Norman Wisdom that year - who instantly became one of my all-time top 5 entertainers. Love him.

I don´t think Francis actually finished a single sentence, let alone joke or story.. *well, ooo look at er, yes you missus, anyway, in Africa - yes Africa! titter ye not, ooo mocking Francis, yes you missus....* - 2 hrs of that and I was ready to die happy. to my eternal embarassment, my parents 16th birthday present to me was trip to see Cannon &amp; Ball at the Manchester Apollo, long after their career had peaked btw. it was... awful. My mum and dad had a habit of doing stuff for themselves and calling it a *present* - I don´t think i ever lived it down with my m8s. I almost forgot - she also got up and marched us out of Billy Connolly at the Preston Guild Hall - when he was funny too! god only knows what she´d have made of The League of Gentlemen, who I saw at the Victoria Hall (just round the corner from the exploding toilet) a while back. now, THAT was funny (but not if you were sat in the aisle seats where Pauline or Herr Lippe or Papa Lazarou could get at you....) and I saw Peter Kay at the Wheatsheaf in Stoke before he made it big, although as Grom and I know full well, most of his material is taken from direct observations of Northern clubs and bingo, which figured largely in our childhoods. Don´t listen to Peter Kay´s rubbish about his poor upbringing, he lives in a 6-bed detached bungalow in Bacup. And he stole his Borrower´s joke off me; but he was dressed as a teddy-bear at the time.. Edited by - .Tawakalna on 10/10/2005 9:12:49 AM

lol. too true. I absolutely love Peter Kay, but in all honesty all he´s done is walked into his local and written down everything happening around him. Genius really - northerners have a good ability to laugh at themselves, so they see the humour when its pointed out to them...and southerners can´t believe its true so take it as an extremity of real life, topped with the fact that they love to laugh at northerners. I can´t believe it took so long for someone to come up with the idea. So simple yet so good. You´ve just reminded me of another great live show as well - The Fast Show Live - now that was awesome. They toured twice, once just as they were peaking and again when they´d gone off the boil a little. I saw them the first time and it was absolutely blinding.

How exactly do you explain the comic merits of a man in a business suit with an over-sized paper mache head and a ridiculously annoying voice? Tell ya what though, when you´ve done explaining that one, try &quot;the man with the stick&quot; from Vic &amp; Bob´s Big Night Out....or in fact &quot;Milky milky&quot; from The Mary Whitehouse Experience.
