Just because everyone should see this, here is a video of Dan Hannan, one of my MEPs, roasting the Prime Minister in the European Parliament.

Stewart Lee

I don't like most stand-up comedy. So those comedians whom I do enjoy are all the more precious, not least because there is so little good stuff on TV.
Thus I am delighted that Stewart Lee has his own show, and that I can download it on BBC iPlayer. You can too, here.

Silver Linings

Tonight's debate at the Oxford Union, to which I was really looking forward, has been cancelled.

I'm crushed.

But two good things emerge. First of all, it helped clarify something I have really been struggling with in the last couple of years - how to get the balance right between ad libbing and using planned material. I have realised that preparing something original in the lead-up to each gig is the way to keep my performance fresh whilst also having properly developed ideas.

And the disappointment I feel this afternoon is a further reminder that I know what I want to do with my life - get up in front of crowds and make them laugh.
