Last night I went to see Daniel Kitson at The Stand. The man really is just a notch above other stand-up comics. Although hilarious all the way through, his two hour show really didn't seem like a stand-up comedy performance. It was more a well thought out discourse on how we can all make the world a much better place. With a few knob jokes and some ironic racism thrown in.
His storytelling is masterful and he has a great way of getting to the crux of niggling little details of daily life. Everyone should see him at least once.
