*clock* Brrrrr!  
Ahhh Mock The Week. LOVE it. Well, mostly Russell - he is yummy!!!

Saw him live at the beginning of December, he was brilliant. I have a couple pics, but there about three because my camera had no battery and he didn't stand still long enough!! Did any of you watch his Good News?

It was watching his Good News when I totally fell in love with him XD So funny! I love his little songs. He did a couple of them live - changing the words slightly, but no less brilliant.

Mr Long-Legged Mack Daddeh!!

I thought the guy who kept walking onto camera during the Question Time reportings was brilliant XD I may have to rewatch these on Youtube later XD

I think he's awesomely cute, and I used to love him on MTW because he came out with the random unpredictable jokes nobody else was saying. I watched one episode of Good News and found it full of really predictable stuff that isn't for me, so I gave up with that one. I find his stand up patchy in terms of my taste, some of it I really love, odd bits I can't stand. But I could probably say that about most comedians these days. The only person that consistently hits the spot for me is Eddie Izzard.

I think he's perfect on MtW because he counteracts some of Frankie's dark jokes XD (And he's just so adorkable!)

Ah, now see I saw Good News first really. I'd seen odd episodes of MtW but it was GN that caught my attention.I have to say though, he does recycle a lot of his stuff. Going back and seeing things over, his little bits crop up all over the place. I've seen his Newspaper rant in about three forms. They do differ a little... but yeah.

Still love him XD

When my mate said, "Oh, look. RH tickets are on sale. Only £20-like." I think I actually had a heart attack.

Nearly had an anyeurism (how on earth do you spell that?!) when we saw him XD

Seriously recommend it. Q&A Encore, guy asked if he could have Russell's shirt, so Russell called him onto stage and they switched shirts! *died*

I love him on MTW, but I didn't like Good News a lot. I watched two episodes and while there were some funny bits, it wasn't enough to keep me watching.

Aha, I've seen them all at least four times? In my defence, for about three of the weeks I wasn't well and it was comfort watching. Then the habit just set in XD My housemates think I'm mad XD

I have the same thing with QI episodes. I've watched some of them so many times that I nearly know all the words XD

Funny TV is comfort TV as laughter is the best medicine P: I think I may be watching Dingledodies soon - returned to Uni with a cold. >.>

Aww, I love Russell! We saw him live at the end of 2008 (I almost said last year then, LOL!) and he was fabulous. I really enjoyed Good News too.

He's adorable. This is a brilliant interview with Russell and his Mum!

You saw Dingledodies live, you saying? LOVE that. Got it for Christmas, actually screamed even though I'd guessed XD 2008 is still practically last year XD

I think I've seen that a couple times and for some reason *not* decided to read it. Methinks I shall now though. Cheers!

Yes, Dingledodies was the one -- fantastic! I haven't seen the DVD version yet actually, it's one of those things that I keep saying "I'll buy it when I get paid" and then not. Bad evie. Yay for Christmas though; how many times have you watched it already? :D

It's definitely worth reading the interview. Mummy Russell is awesome, LOL!

You should! It's brilliant. He gets rugby takckled by a member of the audience in the encore. S'very good. I've seen it twice, but only once on my DVD and once because my mate downloaded it for me. =D

Oh noes! The link is broke! From his stand-up and annecdotes, Mummyy Russell does sound like good company.
