Diamond in the Rough / I Laughed So Hard At One Point I Realised I Needed To Shower
12 July 2016 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Let's start by acknowledging the unfortunately large grey mammal in the room ... these things are usually horribly bad. Lots of unfunny people given a green light to tell "offensive" jokes that are made OK because someone from the demeaned group is there laughing and OK'ing it.

Thing is, jokes can be funny, and when it's owned, and has ... no ... I think I'm going to lose this thread of conversation. I'm so annoyingly not rabidly against anything open and funny against any given target, and also so annoyingly not hating "SJWs" for actually being totally right and fighting for the progression of society. It's a shame that life is 1's and 0's these days, but that's 01101100011010010110011001100101.

This show is actually phenomenal. I don't really want to ruin the comic beats, but I'll say that it's a massive crescendo that actually peaks slightly early ... however the last //indefinite number// were still fantastic.

I can't recommend this hard enough.

What I'm trying to say is that ... even though I tried not to single the comedians out and completely ruin the whole thing for you, I kinda did a little, and I'm a bit sorry. But that's still ... it's a bit of a ... well ... it's a certain kind of move. Without the ones that aren't as funny, the ones that are funnier wouldn't be as funny as they were.

I'll shut up. This is blinking great.
