    I think it's pretty easy to dislike Stewart Lee but I really enjoyed 'Comedy Vehicle'. His comedy clearly wouldn't work on a panel show or 'Live at the Apollo' as he needs time to build his ideas and to tie them together in certain themes.

    Speaking of Live at the Apollo, Rhod Gilbert was pretty good the other night. He can get a little manic but it works.

    Oh, that reminds me of the first time I saw him when he opened with the line:

    "I don't know what you know about being Welsh........but it's not all glamour."

    Saw him do a preview last night. He is amazing. Then again I've been a fan for about 11 years now.

    I think stand-up an incredibly hard thing to do which is why 99% of it is rubbish.

    Just filled in my application for So You Think You're Funny at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival so hopefully that comes through for me.

    I'm going to try get a slot somewhere in London over the summer. Met a girl in Kilkenny who has offered me her couch if I ever go over so that accomadation sorted.

    That's a hell of a commute Daithi, why not look for a couch in London?

    Haha, I probably should have been more specific.

    I like the "sorry, boo", brilliant. You seem to be improving in delivery, so well done. You might want to considering slowing down a bit for your punchlines, sometimes it seems a bit rushed and if you've spent time figuring out a punchline it's a shame if everyone doesn't hear it.

    Also, I'm a big fan of props, good work, the flow chart is a good idea but it's a bit too extended and your funniest moment (to the crowd) of the prop is the horns, which is odd as it is quite a clever joke and punchline. Perhaps just shorten the options for the punchline as the people might get it then. I must admit, I didn't get it straight away, though I wasn't paying that much attention at the time but that might relate to you rushing through that moment a bit.

    Not that I'm a stand up or anything :-) Just what I feel about what I watched. Hope it is some help.

    You are a factory of sadness.

    Cheers. :) I was rushing through it because I was told I only had 5 minutes so I wanted to get the magazine bit in. But usually I'll have 7-9 mins so I'll be able to take my time.

    Ah, I wondered if it might be something like that.

    I'm a fan of Steve Hughes - Alas, haven't seen him with any airtime from what I've noticed, but a great stand up all the same...

    He was a on a tv show over here, that I was in the audience for, as a drummer. Hadn't heard of him beforehand but he was very funny. It wasn't stand up he was doing more talking to the audience between takes and then he'd drum and improv some lines to the host.

    Just saw this, the pregnancy bit cracked me up. Especially the smoking bit and 'how to spot an evil twin.' Great stuff.

    Thanks very much!:)

    I was amazed at how I was on stage last week. The show I did before that was terrible and I was sure the nerves would get to me that night too.

    I'm flying to London for the day tomorrow, so I've decided while I'm there I'll drop in to a few comedy clubs and leave my details with the owners.

    Just need the names of some good comedy places first. Any recommendations?
