‘Ed Gamble: Blood Sugar’ – Amazon Comedy Special Review

by Chris Cummings

Ed Gamble is a comedian that I’m admittedly unfamiliar with and this, his Amazon Prime Stand-up Special, Blood Sugar, is my first experience with his comedy. I do like to discover new comedians and see new stand-up shows, so I was easily interested in checking out Gamble’s new set. Clad in an all-red outfit and […]

‘Simon Amstell: Set Free’ Stand-up Special Review (Netflix)

by Chris Cummings

Like many Brits probably do, I know Simon Amstell for his run as one of the hosts of the BBC 2 late-night music-quiz comedy show Never Mind the Buzzcocks. He was a nerdy, sarcastic comedian who was often very funny with his interactions with the guests on the show. Aside from that, though, I haven’t […]

‘Flo & Joan: Alive on Stage’ – Amazon Comedy Special Review

by Chris Cummings

I hadn’t previously seen any stand-up routine from Flo and Joan, a tandem of musical comedians who sing whimsical and sometimes surprisingly biting comedic songs. The two sarcastic sisters really are easy as hell to watch and enjoy, the whole show flew by without a dull moment, something that can be pretty rare in stand-up […]

‘Paul Chowdhry: Live Innit’ – Amazon Comedy Special Review

by Chris Cummings

Paul Chowdhry is someone I’ve been familiar with for a while, from his previous comedy specials (What’s Happening White People? and PC’s World) as well as some of his film roles (Colour Me Kubrick, Swinging With The Finkels). He’s a funny comedian and I’ve enjoyed his previous work on stage, so I was down to […]

‘Billy Connolly: High Horse Tour Live’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

There are many comedians that spring to mind when you try to decide who are the funniest, but one of the most constant names to turn up on lists has to be Billy Connolly. We don’t tend to see much of his stand-up routines anymore, so when Billy Connolly: High Horse Tour Live was announced […]

‘Jethro Live: 40 Years the Joker’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

Growing up I remember seeing a lot of comedians on television, one that always stood out was Jethro. With his “West Country” voice and his way of telling a story, he was always funny when he made an appearance. With Jethro Live: 40 Years the Joker he takes back to the stage for one last […]

The Top 40 SNL Skits for SNL’s 40th Anniversary

by Catherina Gioino

SNL. Saturday Night Live. The place where comedy and comedians make it. Just like the city it quintessentially represents, if you can make it there, you can make it anywhere. And we have forty years to look at. As you might have seen, SNL is turning forty this weekend, and what better way to celebrate […]

‘Jon Richardson: Nidiot – Live’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Christmas is almost here and that means it’s time for the comedians to release their comedy DVD/Blu-ray because of course comedy is an easy choice for presents during the festive season.  Jon Richardson is known for being on shows like 8 Out of 10 Cats and has a certain style which shows just how miserable […]

‘Mrs Brown’s Boys Live Tour: Mrs Brown Rides Again’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

When you watch social media it’s always interesting to see what people find funny, or what they are a fan of.  One thing I’ve noticed when it comes to comedy on television is that some people see Mrs Brown’s Boys as the worst comedy you could watch, and I can’t help but wonder why? I […]

‘Adam Hills: Happyism Live’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

There are many things that make Adam Hills a good comedian, but the fact is he is more than that and it’s all from his own choice.  When the Special Olympics were riding the success of the Olympics and making people realise that this sports events were just as important, he became in many ways […]

‘Sean Lock: Purple Van Man’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

The name Sean Lock: Purple Van Man is very fitting.  I saw him do an interview about the release and he said that what he was aiming for was to be the “white van man” of comedy, only where a white van man believes he knows everything, the Purple Van Man doesn’t really know anything, […]
