    Saw him last night in Manc, very good! Looks worryingly like a healthier Tony Blair these days.

    Couple of seats down from me was Roy Walker, he advised me to go see Ken Dodd bizarrely. Temptation to say "It's good...but it's not right" was immense.

    I'd no idea he was 58! He looks good (for his age, haha).)

    Heheh, getting married at 46 must be good for you. The warmup guy wasn't bad either.

    I'm no prude, I'll laugh at anything, am offended by virtually nothing and swear like a trooper at work (unfortunately), but you have to applaud Seinfeld's ability to do a great set without resorting to swearing or rude jokes. A rare skill.

    @yegon You lucky person ! I hadn't occurred to me you could still see Seinfeld doing stand-up for some reason. Watched every episode of Seinfeld, usually once a year. Is his material now similar to the stuff he used to do in the stand-up sections of the show ?

    I don't think he tours that often but one of my old uni mates, who originally introduced me to Seinfeld, told me about it. Instantly booked two tickets, quite possibly a once in a life time opportunity!

    Material is similar to his Seinfeld stuff but with a modern twist - he mentions smartphones, eBay etc. One joke that he definitely recycled from the show was about the way a man dresses, till his dying day, the same as "his last good year" i.e. when he was single and free. Otherwise, it all seemed new to me.

    I remember when this first aired on sky in the early 90s. I just couldn't get into it, it was too American' in its comedy (much like friends) and it really just wasn't funny. Watched a few recently and there just as bad now as then.
    Weirdly, I love curb, which is quite similar.

    It's an acquired taste. My uni housemate had loads of em on video and was constantly watching em. Initially I just couldn't get past the twangtwatwangtwangtwang every 5 minutes, but I started paying attention to George and started to grudgingly like it. This turned into loving it. Watched all 9 seasons now twice, only season 8 and select season 9 episodes suck ass.

    Rate Curb much higher, but that's a lot to do with coming to Seinfeld late, so it'd dated a little, whereas Curb was at the forefront of new and ultra offensive comedy (at the time) and I watched it as it was broadcast.

    If you could watch Seinfeld in order, and get past the dated-ness of the earlier stuff, you'd probably love it. But then you're probably not gonna shell out for 9 seasons of something you might hate! I've watched them all through twice and it's brilliant :)

    No soup for you.

    Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. Really nice episode of Seinfeld's ace web series with Michael Richards, in which he comes clean about his 'outburst'. Fairly touching if its as genuine as it seems to be, Richards has defiantly withdrawn himself from the world since it happened so there probably is an ounce of truth to it.

    Wow... George looks amazingly like The Penguin now.

    Also, Newman! I was expecting him to be thinner, on account of Wayne Knight going on a diet. Maybe he had a fat suit on or something.
