Maria Bamford: The Special Special Special | Review by Steve Bennett

Maria Bamford: The Special Special Special

Review by Steve Bennett

20/12/2012 … If there’s a single watchword for post-millennia comedy, it has to be ‘awkward’ – from The Office to Louis CK, big broad jokes are out and the squirming embarrassment of social clumsiness is in.

Frankie Boyle: The Last Days Of Sodom | DVD review by Steve Bennett

Frankie Boyle: The Last Days Of Sodom

DVD review by Steve Bennett

07/12/2012 … Frankie Boyle’s new DVD - his last if his claims to be retiring from stand-up are sincere - is as brutal and as unforgiving as you might expect.

Omid Djalili: Tour Of Duty | DVD review by Steve Bennett

Omid Djalili: Tour Of Duty

DVD review by Steve Bennett

04/12/2012 … Showmanship has largely fallen out of favour in comedy, with stand-ups preferring to look and act if they are merely having a chat, rather than putting any effort into their performance.

Glenn Wool: No Land's Man DVD | Review by Steve Bennett

Glenn Wool: No Land's Man DVD

Review by Steve Bennett

03/12/2012 … The linguistically tricksy title of Glenn Wool’s title refers to the nomadic lifestyle of an international comedian, who currently finds himself homeless in Britain on his return from an ill-fated excursion to become a star in Los Angeles.
