Live comedy in 2021

I was reminded about this when watching 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown yesterday. Huge Davies did three songs, all of which I’d heard when he was supporting Phil Wang. This year I went to: Colin & Brad – Scared Scriptless I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue The Infinite Monkey Cage Michael Spicer The… Continue reading

Live comedy in 2020

I like to go and see live comedy. I had quite a bit in the diary for this year, which quickly got cancelled from March. Although then I saw more than I thought, as they included live screenings.

Funny stuff

I thought that posting about some of the funny RSS feeds and twitter feeds I’ve been looking at recently would be fun.

Funny songs

This would be me not working on Yuletide, but it’s all ISIHAC’s fault. They mentioned the rhyme, I remembered it from Brownies, I had to look it up and it all went downhill from there. There were various funny songs I remember from Brownies, usually based on another song, or just using the tune. Here… Continue reading

Time Travellers Forum

This was linked on New Scientist of all places: Wikihistory It’s page 263 of a (fake) forum called International Association of Time Travelers: Members’ Forum Subforum: Europe – Twentieth Century – Second World War. It’s funny and rather a lot like forums are…
