Comedian and Folk Musician of Immense Talent
26 June 2008 | by (cambridge) – See all my reviews

The Mike Harding show aired on BBC 2 and was terrific. He had a real penchant for observing life and putting the comedic twist to it. Much like Billy Connolly except without the swearing. The 14 and a half pound budgie story took up pretty much of the whole of the half hour episode and had me crying with laughter from start to finish. I am pleased to say some of the material is available on CD now, though sadly not on DVD.

I guess his true love was and still is folk music and he performed this with true feeling. Accompanying himself with many varied stringed instruments, including a balalaika; the boy from Crumpsall did well.

I was lucky enough to see him live on a couple of occasions and still count those shows among my all time favourite live performances. It's a shame he doesn't tour anymore. You can catch his folk show on BBC Radio 2.

Thanks Mike for the laughter - and tears!
