Comedian I Like – James Acaster
Comedians I Like – Bobby Caroll
What can I say about this curly blonde monstrosity. James is so naturally funny, it makes me wander why I try to write comedy. The funniness is just constantly leaking out of him. It makes me want to call a comedy plumber. Comedy plumbers don’t normally fix anything, they’re just amusing to watch. James would […]
Comedians I like – Nick Helm
He’s the man, the man with the Midas touch, A spider’s touch, Such a cold finger beckons you to enter his web of sin, But don’t go in. None of this really describes Bobby Caroll, but you should definitely go to his web’s of sin, and you should definitely go in. Because he’s funny, and […]

He has a powerful weapon. He charges a million a shot. An assassin that’s second to none. He’s the Dan with the golden pun. He’s not a murderer or anything, but’s he’s brilliant at puns, and one-liners. Don’t tell anyone, but I like him more than I like Tim Vine (Sorry Tim Vine!).
Gloves – A short comedy film
The mighty Paul F. Taylor is a boy trapped in a really hairy boy’s body. He spits out nuggets of comedy gold like a very expensive, yet funny Pez dispenser. As well as being my main Edinburgh flatmate / Playstation buddy, he’s also f’ing hilarious. Which may well be what the F. stands for (He’s […]

Nick Hodder – Stand-up Comedy from nickhodder on Vimeo.
Hodder’s purposely twitchy, nervous approach to his set slowly reels the audiences in, familiarizing them to his world where things with nuts in them will almost certainly contain nuts and weights from Argos are difficult to carry. He creates energy in the room with clean observations, sacrificed to surreal deconstructions. Like the others, he constantly […]
