    Not bad. The audience were with you as well. Nice way to defeat a heckler as well. Was that response pre-planned or spontanious?

    Heckler wasn't planned, just some drunk.

    Ok so a quick update.

    I shall be playing Twisted Pepper in Dublin this Saturday and June 6th. And I'll playing the Kilkenny Fringe Festival on 28th, 29th, 30th and possibley 31st of May.
    I'll be on RTÉ 1 some time in the middle of June too.

    If anyone is about and can pop to a show, that'd be deadly:)

    One of my mates is a comedian, he's a big bloke (20 odd stone), and his opening line used to be:

    "Good evening ladies and gentlemen. Let me just answer the question on your minds right now. Yes - but only once."

    "And she died"

    :D That's awesome.

    A friend of mine does stand-up - he's brilliant at it, and won a few competitions in Canada. The guy's hilarious in everyday life - and a near-genius - which definitely plays into it.
    I love helping him out with sets and I have a lot of respect for the process as a result... to be successful at it requires a whole set of skills as well as charisma, intelligence and most of all; balls.

    Dylan Moran is coming to Geneva on the 29th... can't wait.

    Just come back from watching someone I know perform before a Robin Ince headliner, except it kinda didn't go to plan and ended up with him having his head stuck in a stool while a member of the audience (who was being a bit a bitch all night) rode him, smacked his arse really hard, gave him a wedgy and then forcefully shoved some chocolate penguins in his mouth. Nobody knew whether to stop what was going on onstage or to let it carry on out of sheer curiosity and cowardice. Very very bizarre night, and he somehow managed to come out of it like a king, although she was in tears by the end of the night.


    Robin Ince was awesome as usual, a true example of experience and natural talent.


    Aaaand I'm getting back into it tomorrow night, except I've only got one joke written down so far. Might just do what Stewart Lee does and stretch it out for five minutes. Shall be busy writing tomorrow methinks.

    Also one of the few sketches in the show which really added to the standup.

    Funny this thread should pop up. Was just looking for the Bill Bailey threads but they haven't been used in donkeys years. Just watched Tinselworm anyway, and was surprisingly underwhelmed. Part Troll is amazing, but I scarcely laughed during this :/. He seemed way too concerned with politics this time, I didn't remember that about him before?

    The best bit was the encore with the Hindi version of Creep. Amazing. But the encore shouldn't be the best bit ffs.

    Yeah the problem with being more political (I mean if you start getting specific) is that you can only really laugh if you agree, and I didn't necessarily agree with him on quite a few of his points.

    daithi do you mean you're playing the Cats Laughs festival in Kilkenny? I'm from Carlow just on the border with Kilkenny and I usually head into town for that on the Saturday or Sunday. Let us know where you're playing and I might head along.

    I'm playing the Fringe Festival, for like 'up and comers'. I'm doing 2 slots on Thursday, then one each on Friday and Saturday. All in Raftor Dempseys.

    If anyone does pop along that'd be awesome! :)

    The master? Pretentious wanker perhaps. All he does is make a 10 second joke last 3 minutes. Badly.

    I've chuckled to some of his stuff in the past, but he's a one-trick pony who thinks himself a genius.

    Nah he's very good, I think perhaps his style might not work amazingly on TV though. Just go see him live, I've come to the conclusion that comedy loses a lot of its punch when you view it through a screen, especially when you have the power to switch it off. In a room the comedian has a lot more power.

    I watched a lot of Stewart Lee recently as 'study'. His delivery and presence is fantastic imo.

    I have done a five minute gig tonight to a room full of people who weren't entirely all my mates, and I think one of the ones who wasn't one of my mates chuckled a couple of times. So based on that I have quit my day job and am now a full time comic tour de force extraordinaire that does stadium tours. So long paupers.

    I'll be heading in there Saturday night daithi, any idea what time you'll be on cos im goin to see a cats laughs show at 7 in kytelers. Rafters is a decent enough spot, not as big as some of the other venues so ya mightn't be as nervous.

    Need advice chaps.

    Dave McSavage is playing in Cavan, my hometown, on Friday. Should I ask for a support slot? Gigging in Dublin gives me the usual stage nerves, and I don't know anyone there. But in Cavan I'd know everyone and wouldn't get on with some people there, it's a small enough town. But I would get paid. Hmmm.

    /unsure

    I think you're pretty good. I only really like George Carlin as far as stand up goes, and I enjoy moments from Dylan Moran and errrm a few others occasionally. But you have a fair bit of potential IMO, good luck with it!

    People who don't like Stewart Lee have no sole. Fact.

    daithi- really enjoyed that youtube clip, let us know when you inevitably take London by storm.
