The event was hosted very well by Jonathan Ross, Jack Dee, Graham Norton, Julian Clary, and Lily Savage, who all did their best to get the crowd excited, cheerfully bantering with the front row and cracking increasingly cheeky jokes.
The first proper act of the evening, Ardal O'Hanlon, started slowly but eventually won everybody over with his jokes about ambulances and his Irish family. Next up, Alistair McGowan rattled through a few of his favourite impressions (including a particularly fine 'Parkinson' moment) before moving into more broadly observational material. Omid Djalili gave us an energetic routine of silly jokes ("I am the only Iranian comic, but that's still technically three more than Germany"), interspersed with some hilarious attempts at belly dancing. Jo Brand was her usual deadpan self, attacking the uselessness of her husband, and telling an extremely good anecdote about the late Malcolm Hardee. Next up, the percussion group Stomp took to the stage and banged things in a mildy amusing fashion (its impossible to explain, you really need to see it), before it was the turn of Jimmy Carr. This 'slightly offensive' comic gave us a fine selection of his brilliantly written but astonishingly rude one liners, causing gales of laughter and sharp intakes of breath in equal measure. The Bo Selecta Bear attempted an improvised set, loosely based on 'Baddiel and Skinner Unplanned', with Jonathan Ross as his sidekick, but the least said about this bit the better I think.Read more ›
There are all the best here and for everyone from Graham Norton to Johnny Vegas! The sheer list of comedians in this is unbelievable,even the bear from Bo'Selecta! makes an appearance here!
The fact is you'll be laughing throughout and it's going towards a good cause.It's like Red Nose Day,minus the annoying breaks to 'see why we're doing this'.Even though they're good you've seen them 5 times by the end of Red Nose Day,so just buy this DVD,give some of your cash to charity and laugh yourself to sleep!
Another good charity DVD is The best comedy DVD in the World! It doesn't quite meet it's title,but the proceeds all go to charity as with this DVD,so dig deep,this DVD deserves it,even it wasn't for charity!
1.) I noticed I'd seen some of the show before (Ardhal O' Hanlon and Bill Bailey spring to mind) and
2.) I was really disappointed with some of the other acts who I was really looking forward to seeing (Simon Pegg and Jessica Stevenson for one).
However: I did think Dylan Moran, Eddie Izzard and Alistair McGowan were excellent. League of Gentlemen were terrifying as usual.
