I'd love it he did Soothing Sounds as well, as I think that's the best thing I've seen this century when it comes to stand up. I'm not sure if it would have quite the same effect given certain parts relied on audience participation but I still definitely hope he does it, along with his earlier shows like Odessa and Truthmouth which I sadly didn't see.

"I think that's the best thing I've seen this century when it comes to stand up" Same. And agree about the participation, but it would be a shame if it was lost to time.

I'm gonna give Michael Legge a try next, as I like him very much on Twitter. Very glad this thing exists anyway, and went straight for a years subscription as I'm happy to support it.

Odessa was the first time I became aware of him and that probably remains my favourite Morpurgo show.

I really liked Jerk a lot, I'd seen him live a couple of times before seeing it and was fond of him but not much more than that, whereas Jerk has turned me in to a big fan.

I'd also recommend Anna Mann's show, I saw that recently and loved it a great deal, and I thought Rachel Parris's Best Laid Plans was excellent as well, though whether you feel the same may come down to how much you like musical comedy.

And yet you didn't hire several cameramen and a sound guy to record it for me. Which is just mean.

It seems like their communications department has suddenly leapt into action, because I got nothing from them for ages and now it's daily. Could be wearing if it just gets churned out but I like this kind of news.

I'm still very much enjoying the service as a whole, too, though I wish the interface would make it easier to track what's new and what I've already seen. I went back to Lou Sanders after getting the hang of her on Taskmaster and laughed a lot at What's That Lady Doing? I also watched Tom Ballard's The World Keeps Happening, which seems to be new (on the service, anyway), and liked that--he's an Australian comic who I hadn't heard of before (that's probably a tautology), and while his subject matter wasn't earth-shatteringly original he brought a snap and vigor to his phraseology and delivery that I found engaging.

Also doing the Go Faster Stripe subscription but that's more devoted to playing catchup.

I liked Lou's show a lot as well, there was the odd bit which didn't work but as a whole she was superb. I saw her latest on Saturday and that was excellent too, and much more consistent, so I have a feeling she's really going to do well at this year's festival. And I've not seen Tom Ballard's show yet but thanks for the recommendation, I'll definitely check it out soon.

I just watched The Worst Of George Ryegold (aka comedian Toby Williams) which I thought was really good, it's pretty dark and grim at times but it never feels like it's being edgy for no good reason, he has a great way with words and it made me laugh a lot.

Joseph Morpurgo's 'Hammerhead' is up.

Well, that was delightful; got several full honking laughs from me as well as more attractive forms of amusement. Thanks for the heads-up.

I saw Hammerhead live and adored it, and while I'm not normally one for watching a live show twice I did with this and loved it even more, I really hope NextUp persuade him to record his older shows for them.

I also saw Roisin and Chiara's show recently, which was great in places and a bit weak in others (the Matrix part was really dated) but they're very likeable and I'll definitely catch them live at some point.

Not sure the brilliance of Hammerhead completely comes over on video, but it's still great.
