Any of these comedians any good?


#1

If you could say why they’re good that’d be smashing too


#2

mabey

(sorry I don’t know any of those comedians)


#3

George Egg will definitely be funny as he’s hilariously picked George Egg as his stage name.


#4

Fern Brady seems alright on the radio, not sure if I’ve heard any of her actual standup though


#5

Gein’s Family Giftshop


#6

Gavin Osborne does music comedy stuff about football manager and other bits and bobs. He’s alright.

Rob Deering is a bit shit, but he does a pretty funny ‘game show’ Beat This (normally at midnight on Saturday).

I normally duck in there and spend a bit of time if there’s not much on. It’s a bit hit and miss, but have seen some good stuff in the past


#7

She’s shite


#8

I like Geins and Will Duggan. Thank you for reading.


#9

I really like Fern Brady.


#10

Mike Bubbins and George Egg


#11

Phil Wang is funny. Takes the piss out of himself quite a lot.

I like Jess Fostekew, she hosts The Guilty Feminist.


#12

I like Phil Wang a lot.

I’ve seen Gavin Osborne with Daniel Kitson before and he seemed good but that might’ve just been the Kitson halo? Also not sure whether he’s actually a comedian.

I hear good things about Geins but I’ve never seen them.

Saw Tom Wrigglesworth at another festival earlier this year. He was alright. Material was a bit middle of the road, but there was a certain charm to his delivery. I wouldn’t give up the chance of a decent band to watch him again, but if there’s nothing else going on it won’t be a complete waste of your time. [DISCLAIMER: he was on at about one in the morning, and I had been drinking since roughly 10am on about three hours sleep the night before, so my judgement may not have been at it’s sharpest]


#14

Wang! I’m already laughing


#15

Deering is great. I mean obviously he’s shit but lovingly so, and he’ll always get a pass from me after spending five minutes trying to play freebird after I heckled him at Leeds fest aeons ago


#16

That’s basically what beat this is. audience members call out songs and he plays them (badly) whilst singing other songs over the top of the tune. Great fun. And it’s seated


#17

NOBODY should go and see Phil Wang, he was mean to me once! I’m actually hoping I’ll spot him around the Green Man site and I can have it out with him, give him a piece of my mind.


#18

Used to work with and was good Mates with Phil Jerrod for a while - he is good so go see him! Sort of ranty existentialism stuff (or was last time I saw him anyway)

Used to have a good joke about ringo Starr being dead but I’m not sure he does that anymore.


#19

I really like Phil Wang.

Stuart Laws is good mates with James Acaster so expect similar. Saw him once and enjoyed it.

Who is James Acaster?
