    That's the other thing - he's dead positive and likes happy things! Refreshing when these days people seem to *like* moaning about something or other.

    Hmm. I didn't used to like russel howard, but now I'm beginning to like him. Not a great comedian, but I think he's ok now.

    Yeah, he grew on me too and although it's far from the greatest he's good enough to watch and enjoy the experience. His good news tv show is pretty decent too, tend to watch it on iplayer between lectures at the university.

    Strange how some funny people are actually crap at jokes but good in certain situations.

    Dara is a bit crap at being witty but his show is well thought out, helps he's a jovial Irish man too of course.

    I'm the opposite - love his stand up, but he's a bit dull as a host.

    He's also a genuine genius!

    Never heard his stand up before, or maybe I did once but can't remember it that well, however I do love him and reckon he's probably better suited to the host role.

    Whooop! Nice selection!

    Me and Ad are considering seeing Reg in Nov at Liverpool... We go to a fair bit of comedy.

    Sean Locke was really good, more so than I imagined and Jason Manford is top notch!

    Hmmm... Desire is the right word....

    She adores the big hairy manscara man! Really clever lyrics and good song writer... I just don't like his voice.

    And he's a skeptic!

    I desparately want to see him as I practically worship the ground he walks on :P

    But I can't afford £35 a ticket plus he's not on in Liverpool so we'd probably have to find somewhere to stop in Manchester which would cost a lot and have to pay to get the train there and back too.

    *Sulks*

    I also *really* want to see Matilda that he wrote the music for,

    he was very good when i went to see him (before he became well known) I still think he looks like a blonde russel brand

    Really unsure about Jason Manford, a little more curious now you've said he's good. Cause lets face WandA is always right

    He's proper into comedy and making people laugh and it makes a huge difference. He stayed 2 hours to do an encore when we saw him just because he obviously loves doing it! Seems a proper, lovely, genuine bloke!

    *Goes off to be jealous of Doug*

    We've been to see him twice and just missed his new tour! He comes across very natural, friendly and genuine in his shows and it works for the type of jokes he tells. I think the first time we went he done a 90min encore! He has a Q&A at the end and just makes jokes off the back of that... 2nd time wasn't as long, he was going home to his kids! Does stay behind for few hours and sign stuff and chat too.

    I do have said before your... *ssshhhh* one of my fave ladies here, up for a laugh and clever! I'm right about that too. Nice to know my message of righteousness, errr I mean rightness, is getting through!
