Fringe Benefits!

Both the hosts and the comics vary in quality and it's probably best not to binge on it because a lot of the material is fairly formulaic. I really enjoy stand-up but I think that the law of diminishing returns applies quite strongly. It's Fringe material, probably much better consumed live than in a recorded show but it still made me laugh a lot in places with quality performances from the likes of Reginald D Hunter included. Possibly the most memorable though was a performance by Rosie Jones, an amazing lady who suffers from cerebral palsy and has the gumption to get up and do comedy when most people, myself included, would never dare to get behind such a microphone.

Taken in small doses of an episode at a time this should raise a few chuckles. Of course much of the content is shall we say "grown-up" and the language as you are warned at the start of each episode is shall we say brightly hued so if either of those two put you off then this is best avoided. For me being able to listen to some fairly decent quality stand-up for free is definitely a benefit of being an Audible member.

4 out of 5

A great freebie this: some absolute gems, the occasional train wreck, but the majority I have to say is rather average. I wouldn't have listened to any of this material if it weren't for Audible.

When did stand up get so poor?

If ypu want to listen to bulger women swearing and babbling on about their private parts and how big their latest boyfriend's c*** is then download and enjoy. Otherwise avoid. Totally unfunny. I tried 3 different episodes and gave up....

Stand up needs to take a hard look at itself if this is the best the fringe has. Come back Michael McIntyre all is forgiven...almost...

Obviously some performers are funnier than others

It is very diverse so obviously some performers are funnier than others. Some I didn't find at all funny and somewhat annoying.

hit & miss

it's free, so big plus for that but some of the acts are terrible! There is the odd gem, so worth a listen but the price of this is right
