Dara O Briain Talks Funny: Live in London is the culmination of Dara's massive 2008 sell out tour of the UK and Ireland. Recorded at the world famous Hammersmith Apollo before 3,300 fans, this is Dara at his best, mixing top drawer material with lightning fast improvisation to give his audience yet another hilarious night to remember.

Would you listen to Dara O'Briain again? Why?

I listen to this again and again and it makes me laugh out loud every time. Great!

Have you listened to any of the narrator’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Not quite Craik Dealer but brilliant all the same.

Any additional comments?

Buy - you wont regret it!

Showtime! is Michael McIntyre at his breath-taking best. Following his two record-breaking shows, Live and Laughing and Hello Wembley, Michael returns with his most hilarious show yet. Recorded during his phenomenal 10 night run at the O2 in London and part of his 71-date arena tour playing to over 700,000 fans, Michael raises the bar once again with his relentless energy and razor-sharp observations that has the crowd roaring with laughter.

Lengthy introduction left me thinking there was something wrong and was then followed by poor quality audio that spoiled the listening experience. There is no denying that Michael is a great comic but this did not do him any justice.

Get this year’s comedy fix from the mighty Dara O Briain’s highly anticipated new tour, Dara O Briain: Craic Dealer. The host of Mock the Week (BBC ONE), The Apprentice You’re Fired! (BBC TWO) and star of Three Men in a Boat (BBC TWO) returns this year with his funniest Live show to date, proving why Dara is regarded as one of the comedy greats by audiences and fellow comedians alike.

Brilliant from start to finish. You know how good it is as you walk down the street with your headphones on and just can not help yourself laughing out loud despite the quizzical, and slightly concerned, stares you receive from those around you. Dara has a straightforward view on life that is as refreshing as it is funny.

If you want a half hour pick me up then I would highly recommend Craic Dealer.

Building upon this critical work in Good Calories, Bad Calories and presenting fresh evidence for his claim, Taubes now revisits the urgent question of what’s making us fat—and how we can change—in this exciting new book. Persuasive, straightforward, and practical, Why We Get Fat makes Taubes’s crucial argument newly accessible to a wider audience.

A straightforward take on a really simple concept. I listened to this while on a VLCD and it makes more sense than virtually everything else I have heard - not so easy to follow but with the tools available you are then empowered! Definately worth listening to if you want to control your weight in the long term.
