I went to see bill bailey last tuesday and oh my gosh it was so funny I love him he is just amazing and musical - he rules! almost got very upset when he started to slag of friends but then he only insulted the theme tune so I managed to pull through

On thursday, I went to BBC to see would I lie to you being recorded. that was brilliant too especially david mitchell he is just a legend in my eyes I love his big rants that he goes on every now and then - they are perfect

Sounds like youre gonna have a great time Emm! =D

I went to see Bill Bailey too - i forgot to tell you all - the show was class and i blagged my way backstage and met him and it was filmed for the DVD. So that'll be class if it's used. He signed the manga him i drew and my Black Books series 3. Now i've got all of them signed! first by Dylan, then Tamsin signed my second series, then this one! Hooray! He drew a moustahe on Tamsin Greig. Hehe.

I met Jimmy Carr too. He was wearing a silk shirt. I've really gotten into his comedy lately... when he first appeared hosting random channel 4 things i wanted to smack his stupid face but now i really like him XD

You might all ostracise me for saying this... but does anybody think that the Irish comedian Patrick Kielty looks a teeny tiny bit like Julian??

I was watching live at the apollo on Monday and just for split seconds from certain angles he just reminded me of Julian!!

So I went to Orangaid Comedy night last night (posted a link to it in "Greatest Comedy actors (?) ) at the the Lyceum Theatre and it was a night of pure entertainment and laughter! - just what me and my brother needed (he has just moved house and i've been off work and a bit low - to say the least!)
Anyway, it was a pretty good line up including - Russell Howard, Chrissie Hynde (ok so she's not a comedian but it was rather funny when she forgot to plug her guitar in - only realised after the first song :duh: so we had to promp her to 'unplug' at the end :lol: ) Some massively tall Irish fella called Brendan...? who was very funny - he did a "Whose line is it anyway" type-sketch when he asked what accent shall he speak in and about what - the response was talk in Polish about Bus routes and beetroot so Brendan played the Polish-speaking person and the host (bald man from Newcastle - has appeared on "Never mind the Buzzcocks" but, can't remember his name!) played the interpreter - I was in stitches!
There was an Iranian woman too.
The icing on the cake was when Bill Bailey appeared (as the main act) on stage with his usual guitar and keyboard waiting to be used - very, very funny! Did an Elvis song with Chrissie too.
A top evening and all for a good cause - the Sumatran Orangutang Society! Those Apes need our help!

Hey Link - good to see you posting back on here - how's the physio going? I hope you are feeling better?!

Anyway, the comedy night was at the Lyceum Theatre - at the far end of the Strand (where the Lion King is being shown)

Just looked at the line up on the Orangutan Site :

and the Comedian I was talking about was Brendan Dempsey and the evening raised over £20,000!!!

Linka - sorry you still aren't well, but at least if your physio is finished that's one thing sorted I suppose :?

It is good to be back. I met and hugged Simon Amstell after his show on Friday night. Lol, he is such an adorable person. He's like a mouse. He;s actually a lot taller than you'd expect from watching him on TV... >.>

While having a debate with Jakes father yesterday as he talked throught the end of the Russell Howard show because he doesn't think he's funny and I do, my sister pointed out his new tour dates.

Anyone fancy coming? For those of us around the Midlands ( farmer country) the options are The Alexandra Birmingham, Townhall Cheltenham or the place I saw Muse at in Bristol ( Russells hometown) the dates are oct and nov.

OK I'll go on his site and get the dates. Thinking a weekend is probably best for us so no work the next day. Baggie's up for it too and my sister Sarah as well.

So much for the weekend idea apparently he's only doing the BIG cities then not farmer land. So our options are

Sun 26 oct Birmingham Alexandra
thurs 6th nov Bristol Colston Halls
thurs 27th Nov Cheltenham

Got to admit the 1st 2 are better venues from what I remember of seeing Stewart Lee at the Town Hall. Plus I might be taking the small fraise blonde one to Euro disney at the end of Nov. Let me know what you think

Thats fine by me, I take it we'll need to find somewhere to crash. For me its far enough in the future to be able to get the next day off work. A road trip would be cool especially if we were all free the next day.

oh i love Russell Howard (not as much as my friend Hollie though) but i do have to say that when I saw Noel Fielding live at the Chapel Jon Richardson was MCing and even on the radio show I find him slightly funnier. in many ways I prefer him to russell but I do love them both

I should be in newcastle by then so I may try and go somewhere near there...
