Having been to a few super early WIPs of his, this will almost certainly be the case!


Thanks for the post holyzombiejesus, I totally missed the email. Got some tickets for late in the run, really looking forward to seeing one of the Regent's Park shows finally too. Do they have chairs or is it a sit on the floor type deal? What's the deal with rain?

It’s a lovely amphitheatre. Bring a mac though.

when I went in 2015 the actual park was closed by the time the show finished and I couldn't go out the way I came in, so be prepared for that too

Oh yeah I went to the 2015 show as well, really enjoyed it although can't actually remember a huge amount about it tho.. think he read like three stories out and the other guy played a couple of songs on his guitar or something?

Indeed it was. He’s far too good at this. I’m not sure he did a single actual bit in the entire show, but it was still funnier than a lot of comics could manage with a honed Edinburgh show.

Yeah, I was there too. What a gig! Classic dicking about and being 'in the room'. The presence of an 11 year old and 15 year old really added to the crowdwork. He didn't really edit himself though. A lot of c bombs from the kdog and quite right too.

Not to mention all the gardenless women!

Pretty sure they put some on sale at midday of the day of the show too sometimes. Can almost guarantee the weekday 9pm shows will have a good few free seats so you might just get in if you turn up on the night tbh

Jesus, got held up this morning at 11am and by the time I got to a computer the show was sold out. I assume that's the full Regents Park tickets gone there?

Managed to get two tickets about two hours later from an absolutely atrocious viewing angle but it's better than nothing

Can anyone remember any of Daniel's jokes that rhyme? like a rhyme in the punchline

I know he does it from time to time, but I can't recall any right now

There is that bit in the Brixton Academy bit about the cigar smoker being "cunt-cubed" which he then explains is alliterative and therefore funnier. Can't think of any rhymes off the top of my head. You also have his silly songs that rhyme, but then they are not really jokes.

I recall, in an old show, he said "beardy-weirdy" over and over several times as a demonstration of base level rhyme humour.

Yea... this is the kind of stuff I'm looking for, the poetic devices mainstream comedy tends to ignore (obviously not Tim Key)

They are funny though, so they count... he has the "I like to fuck with my dick" song, what else?

did you witness this live? do you think this is available in a recording somewhere...?

Kitson appears in the new documentary "It Started As a Joke" about The Eugene Mirman Festival, in both talking head form and a few minutes of stand-up from the final show of the festival.

Any word on when that's going to be released? Only heard about screenings at SXSW and so on.

Sorry but I’ve had to remove that. I believe he has a bandcamp page with material available to buy for very little money, if you wish to support his work.

Cheers.

Oh, that's very unfortunate, because - like I mentioned in the post - I've already bought all that is publicly available.

I am looking specifically for work that is being shared privately, which - from what I've read in this thread as well as others - is not something that Kitson himself minds, no? It is something that's been discussed all throughout this thread, so I am not entirely sure why my post was removed.

Did anyone get tickets to his Edinburgh shows yet?
