This is a clever, warm and thoroughly enjoyable recording. I've only seen Rich Hall guesting on TV shows but his dry and self deprecating persona tempted me to take the gamble and buy this.
I'm very glad that I did. It also turns out to be slightly longer than other live comedy shows I've bought which is a nice bonus.
One to catch live when I next get the opportunity. Recommended.
I love Sean Lock's comedy. There is a however, er, however. As the owner of his previous live CD I was disappointed that he repeats some routines on this CD and that there are some sections where he is doing visual gags - the audience love it but the listener is left a bit frustrated.
Enough of the bad stuff though - this is a great comedian at the top of his game and I laughed like a drain... Four stars for the repeated and visual gags, but five stars for his ability to take you in to his world and leave one grinning like a loon.
I only listened to this once but hey, rather like pouring spaghetti from a pan, I found myself listening to it all in one go.
Danny Wallace has an engaging way of telling his preposterous tales and he takes one along as a willing sap. This is long flight/beach holiday type listening but still manages to provide some pause for thought. Lovely stuff!
