The perfect antidote to a Monday morning commute

Any additional comments?

As a huge fan of stand up comedy I've found these shows a brilliant way to listen to some of my favourite comedians including Reginald D Hunter, and discover new names too. I downloaded the first episode in time for my commute into work on Monday morning and it cheered me up no end. I've since religiously downloaded further episodes for each morning's train journey - in fact really they should pipe this out on the tube to beat the communal grumpiness.

Some great finds

Discovered some great new comedians. Enjoyable on a long drive. This was definitely one of the better comedy stand up series.

Male dominated

Enjoyed the performances but it would have been nice to see more of a gender balance. Three (white) male comics sharing compering duties, and across all 12 episodes, of the 36 comics featured only 11 of them were female (plus one was non-binary). Particularly disappointing to see given that this was a year with a female (joint) winner for the main award and also for the newcomer award.

Not funny

It just wasn't funny. It was however very annoying, and definitely great advertising of why not go to Edinburgh...
