Daniel Kitson

Just a short post to let you know that MLYW and I went to see marvellous stand-up comic, and beardy genius, Daniel Kitson at the West End Centre in Aldershot last night. I'd never seen him before, but I'd heard he was well-respected in the stand-up world, so we went along to see why.

Wow! Nearly 2 hours of solid, inspired, storytelling and meandering opinions about why the world is in its current state, what we can do to help, why we don't do enough and other deep philosophical musings, wrapped up in a hilarious package of hairy, grinning, stuttering word-smithery.

I'm no expert, but if he's not the funniest and most profound comedian working in Britain (or the world) today, then the world's even more broken than Daniel thinks it is.

See him as soon as you can.

Beware though - his website's broken, so it's difficult to find his tour dates!
