Went to see Ed Byrne on May 18th at KGH and he was phenomenally funny and his warm-up (Karl Spain, I think) was damn good too. Shame the place was half-full but then again, I feel like one of only a small few to see him in Blackburn. VERY funny.

Especially his expansion on the 'Gorgeous girl; tracksuit' joke.

The People that attract and pickNchoose acts to play at King Georges Hall let this town down massively with the rubbish they do show, same overpriced comedians every year, so-called tribute acts(who pays good money to watch these things!) and kids shows. Such a good venue they should be trying to get more relevant bands and artists in and show some proper theater plays.

Speak for yourself there mate!

Unfunny hack that has to rely on shock factor in a genre where it's now largely extinct apart from sportsmans dinner and working men's clubs etc. Suppose it gives him a niche
Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long.

We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we're curious.....And curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

Agreed, I'm no prude but he is vile.

What's vile about saying Rebecca Adlington looks like a dolphin? Our own players say the same about Martin Olsson.

He says some dodgy stuff, but the Adlington reaction was OTT.

Why stop there, he's a blast at Downs syndrome kids, or even the blind ones too.

To be fair Nick I did say he says some dodgy stuff. The furore over the Adlington thing was nonsense, you have to judge what is said not who said it.

His Pendleton comment was far worse.

Whoa hoss let's not fall out :)

He just rubs me up the wrong way, it must be my age but none of the modern comics make me laugh. My daughter roars at Russell Howard, I feel like dropping him on a spike, and Lee Evans ? Don't get me started. I prefer the old stuff, mother in law gags, Les Dawson etc

Not at all pal, promise! :)

Boyle is OK for me, dont take him all that seriously, he's hardly high brow. Lee Evans is about as funny as a kick in the face. There's not a comedian that comes close to Eddie Izzard for me.

Jim Jefferies is on at Manchester Oprea house in early September after a month at the Edinburgh.Fringe.His act must have changed somewhat if allowed to perform there..My fav Comedy location is the Edinburgh fringe... you can stay in there using empty university digs if you want to do it cheap..During the fringe they run courses were you can have a go yourself.if you fancy it..

only seem the 1 jim jefferies show(the 1 seemsto be repeated every other day on 1 of the sky channels), ###### funny, not nasty like Boyle but still pretty out there.


p.s. Eddie Izard hasnt been funny since 1993, hes just a bland dressless smug git now.

Something about her upper body strength and still not being strong enough to hold him off.....something like that, you get the idea.
