Garfunkel and Oates show how great raunchy comedy music can be!
Review of Secretions - Garfunkel and Oates by iamasadlittleboy

Advantages: Hilarious, great world play, some genuinely brilliant tracks
Disadvantages: A few weaker lyrics, a bit too offensive for some, explicit content

Suman Biswas is still alive!
Review of Still Alive After Amateur Transplants - Suman Biswas by iamasadlittleboy

Advantages: Some brilliant word play, reinventing modern songs

Rhod Gilbert at his brilliant best
Review of Award Winning Mince-Pie - Rhod Gilbert by pumfster

Advantages: Very funny throughout.
Disadvantages: Doesn't have the extra content of the DVD version.

Iím a bit of a fussy so and so when it comes to comedy and frankly Iím not overly enthused by a fair bit of what is around these days. One big exception to this comes in the form of the welsh comedian Rhod Gilbert. I first saw Rhod many years ago on some ... Read review
