In a few hours I'll be on stage in Palestine - Bethlehem in the West Bank to be precise - performing the Messiah Complex live to a room full of Palestinians, and anyone else who's interested in seeing a comedy show that Russell Brand has deemed too dangerous for the Middle East.

Santa Baby, Please Don't Get Me a New Steam Iron for Xmas

Sian Hughes

So perhaps what I'm trying to say is this, folks. If you happen to be one of those people who irons a lot, but especially if you ever iron hankies, socks, sheets, duvet covers, or for chrissakes, your leggings, you are basically dead to me.

Nebraska Review

Tom Linay

I'm going to come right out and say it, Alexander Payne's Nebraska features my favourite performance of 2013 and it's not Bruce Dern as Woody, wonderful though he is. She may only be on screen for around fifteen minutes in total but June Squibb, playing Woody's long suffering wife Kate, steals every scene she's in.

Natalie Gumede is a good friend of mine. In recent months, I've seen a lot of stories about her in the press... On many of these occasions I have wanted to defend Natalie from these insane stories, but I have stopped myself for two reasons...

Bucking the trend of "seeing the thing you are writing about", James Moran walks around HMV and draws his own conclusions. These are the reviews The Powers That Be (informed, paid reviewers) don't want you to see/don't even know about. This week, if you're looking for a Christmas gift DVD special look no further.

It is time to reacquaint ourselves with Steve Furst, a man who made his comedy bones back in the 1990s, doing his first stand-up at 23 and subsequently working with Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer in Catterick and alongside Matt Lucas and David Walliams in Little Britain.

The Rich Should Just Keep Quiet

Ed O'Meara

On one drunken night in a club, he said to me: "Ed, you know what your problem is? You have a chip on your shoulder." Now, he was probably right. Living on my £13,000 researcher's salary, I'd probably heard enough about his frequent trips to Val d'Isere and his worldview and had grown weary of his relentless brown-nosing of the senior producers.

Are All Exams Pointless?

Xavier Toby | Posted 25.01.2014 | UK Comedy
Xavier Toby

I don't use either of the degrees in my everyday work, and I remember hardly any of the information I studied so hard, and even less of it is ever useful. However, my year 12 marks got me into uni, and those two degrees still get me all sorts of unrelated jobs, along with a highly embellished resume.

Let's Raise the Age Of Consent to 35

Sal Thomas | Posted 23.01.2014 | UK Comedy
Sal Thomas

Ashton argues that almost a third of under-16s have already had intercourse, so lowering the limit will send a clear message to 14s and under that they absolutely cannot have sex for another 12 months. But where does it end? Over a third of under-16s have tried booze, but that doesn't mean we should let them into pubs. For a start they can't afford to buy a round, the free-loading bastards.
