  • "Very Clever, Very Funny"

    Overall

    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.

    Rich Hall with Special Guest Otis Lee Crenshaw - Hell No I Aint Happy, Live at the Apollo

    Hell No I Ain't Happy is the first time that Rich Hall and his jailbird uncle, Otis Lee Crenshaw, have appeared together on one recording. Recorded on one fantastic night at London's legendary Hammersmith Apollo during his sell out UK tour, Rich Hall's acerbic comic genius proves to be the perfect host to the hard-living country musician Otis Lee Crenshaw, whose songs may not make the top of the country charts but are right on the money when it comes to laughs.

  • "Have You Heard The One?"

    Overall

    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.

  • "Worth a Listen? Yes!"

    Overall

    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!

    Danny Wallace had been staying in. Far too much. Having been dumped by his girlfriend, he really wasn't doing the young, free and single thing very well. Instead he was avoiding people. Texting them instead of calling them. Calling them instead of meeting them. That is until one fateful date when a mystery man on a late-night bus told him to 'say yes more'. These three simple words changed Danny's life forever. Yes Man is the story of what happened when Danny decided to say YES to everything.

    Between 1980 and 1988 on BBC television and radio, the exploits of the Rt Hon Jim Hacker MP (Paul Eddington) - later Prime Minister - kept the British nation enthralled. Helped - and hampered - by his diligent Permanent Secretary Sir Humphrey Appleby (Nigel Hawthorne) and his Principle Private Secretary Bernard Woolley (Derek Fowlds), Hacker and his department became synonymous with government bureaucracy and administrative double dealing.

    Berlin, Summer 2011. Adolf Hitler wakes up on a patch of open ground, alive and well. Things have changed - no Eva Braun, no Nazi party, no war. Hitler barely recognises his beloved Fatherland, filled with immigrants and run by a woman. People certainly recognise him, albeit as a flawless impersonator who refuses to break character. The unthinkable, the inevitable happens, and the ranting Hitler goes viral, becomes a YouTube star, gets his own T.V. show, and people begin to listen.

    Well hello to you dear audiobook browser. Now I have your attention it would be rude if I didn't tell you a little about my literary feast. So, here is the thing: is it just me or does anyone else find that adulthood offers no refuge from the unexpected horrors, peculiar lack of physical coordination and sometimes unexplained nudity, that accompanied childhood and adolescence? I am proud to say I have a wealth of awkward experiences - from school days to life as an office temp - and here I offer my 18-year-old self (and I hope you, too, dear listener) some much needed caution and guidance on how to navigate life's rocky path.

    1913 - Suffragette throws herself under the King's horse. 1969 - Feminists storm Miss World. Now - Caitlin Moran rewrites "The Female Eunuch" from a bar stool and demands to know why pants are getting smaller. There's never been a better time to be a woman: we have the vote and the Pill, and we haven't been burnt as witches since 1727. However, a few nagging questions do remain.... Why are we supposed to get Brazilians? Should you get Botox? Do men secretly hate us? What should you call your vagina?

    A guy walks into a bar.From here, the story could take many turns. A guy walks into a bar and meets the love of his life. A guy walks into a bar and finds no one else is there. When this guy is David Sedaris, the possibilities are endless, but the result is always the same: he will both delight you with twists of humour and intelligence and leave you deeply moved. In Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls, Sedaris remembers his father's dinnertime attire (shirtsleeves and underpants), his first colonoscopy (remarkably pleasant), and the time he considered buying the skeleton of a murdered Pygmy. The common thread? Sedaris masterfully turns each episode into a love story: how it feels to be in a relationship where one loves and is loved over many years, what it means to be part of a family, and how it's possible, through all of life's absurdities, to accept oneself. With Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls, David Sedaris shows once again why he has been called 'A humorist par excellence, he can make Woody Allen appear ham-tongued, Oscar Wilde a drag' (Observer).

    I don't know how it happened. Really, I don't. I was a student at the University of Buffalo, located, of all places, in Buffalo, New York. I guess that's why they called it the University of Buffalo? The year was mid-1960s. Every word of this story is true. Maybe embellished a little to satisfy my creative urge. But it's a story I remember as if it were yesterday. Then again, maybe it was. In the scheme of things. You'll laugh. A lot. You'll remember. A lot. You might even want to go back to college. Well, that might be a bit of a stretch!

    Hawthorne presents several ideas which form the very core of the conservative critique: that man's sinfulness is an immutable part of his character; that rationalists, reformers, and progressives delude themselves with their utopian notions of the perfectibility of man; that in their delusion they do incalculable damage to the culture, while leaving human nature untouched; and that, no matter the "progress" they make, evil lurks, waiting to rear its ugly head and shatter their dreams.
