Those that watched last night, did DK send a link so you could watch again (or something)? We've got a ticket for tonight but would prefer to watch tomorrow evening. What was his intro like?

There is a link attached to the streaming page, I'm not sure how long it remains active for but I just checked and my one from last night is still working.

As for the intro, it was just a bit of brief rambling (an intro to the show, why he's done it this way, and a short tale about how he was riding his bike home during NHS clapping) which was fun enough but by no means essential.

Edit: Beaten to it!

That was great. The whole thing worked brilliantly. Bye!

Watched Thursday evening,  the intro worked fine then for the actual show just a big spinny wheel of waiting. Number of live viewers dropped rapidly,  I guess we all just hopped over to the non-live stream (which worked fine fortunately).

It worked okay for me on Thursday but I did notice the amount of live viewers fluctuated a great deal and so was wondering what was happening, and I'm glad you got to see it without any issues in the end though.

Watched it yesterday and really enjoyed it. It did do a bit of buffering at points which was quite annoying as I missed a few ends of sentences as a result. It happened infrequently enough that i didn't bother moving over to the non-live stream and i also wanted to see what he had to say at the end when he returned to live mode. Not quite sure why it can't work so that your stream ends up a bit delayed at the end of the buffering rather than just skipping over a chunk of the show. He looked absolutely knackered in his intro but still made the effort to crack some jokes and give an amusing 20min lead-in that I thought justified the concept over just chucking out a youtube video. Hopefully there'll be more of this sort of thing to come.

how long did he talk for at the end?

Only a couple of minutes. In hindsight probably not worth watching a slightly unstable stream for

Really enjoyed it. Might actually be my favourite of his story shows. I do find his delivery a bit fast though, when I'd rather take time to soak in the details. I think this is one that would work very well as a book - preferably with lots of fold-out letters and nice bits of old paper to smell.

Could anyone who has access to a recording of his 2012 show "where once was wonder" possibly drop me a pm?

He's released 'It's the Fireworks Talking' which is his best show IMHO. And presumably it's not the night someone in the audience ruined it by shouting 'Gay' at the climax of the last bit.

I've definitely heard this before. Has it been bootlegged? Or has he released it before then taken it off sale?

Yep, there was one floating around. As mentioned above, the ending of the show was ruined by a heckler shouting "gay" when Kitson was talking about how much he loves his dad.

The thing is, it was literally the closing line of the show. You kinda know what you're getting with a Daniel Kitson closer and the kinds of sentiment he aims for, you rarely get the chance to hear such a spectacularly poorly placed heckle.

It's a great show though, super looking forward to hearing a new version of it.

Modern Kitson is rather genteel with the audience in my experience (we were told to get our phones out at The Stand a couple of years ago and he has phone material for awkward beeps -definitely mellowed). But in his last but one Edinburgh run he crucified a pissed up couple who sat at front and kinda spoiled the ending 90mins into show. It was great to see and fully deserved. Even better that they were so pissed the more brutal he got with them the more they just rolled their heads giggling.

So, I listened to the Bandcamp link above there, it sounded like the ending, but there was just a sudden stop, rather than his final words then room for the audience to applaud, but could that be the "gay" thing being cut out?

EDIT: Yeah, I think that is just the way it ends. Interesting: abrupt, somewhat appropriate but also kinda edgy and dismissive.

Did you listen to the full thing? I believe you have to pay to hear the rest of it.

You can listen to it all online without paying. You can even download it without paying if you know how. (Whether you should is another matter.)

I don't think the bandcamp release of The Fire Works Talking was intended to be released, it sounds like like it was recorded on a phone from the stage.  Kitson's voice is crisp and clear but the audience laughter is muffled, distorted and tinny, I suspect it has has been edited my someone who has only recently learned how to use audio editing software.

The official Fringe recording excludes any preamble and postamble, it starts and ends abruptly, there's almost zero riffing and straying off topic, almost 100% scripted material.

The bootleg was recorded a month before Fringe, it's about 20 minutes longer and had more of a naturally delivered vibe. I prefer the bootleg recording as it feels more complete even if the end was ruined by a heckler, and then saved by DK2000.

It was probably recorded through the board with the only mic being the one on stage. A few of his releases sound like this; I don't think there's editing involved.

hmmm? Is this some sort of browser plugin that can hoke out the files, similar to how you can convert youtube videos to mp3s and what not?

Yeah, I reckon this is the case with It's The Fireworks Talking. Pretty crappy quality, which is acceptable for headphone listening, but not good at all when you play it through speakers before you fall asleep, where one second Daniel's chat is barely audible, then next he shouts something and you're jumping for the volume knob, because your flat mate and neighbours are now going to kill you. Never heard of a compressor or a limiter, Daniel? 'Sake, like.

Lovely show though. Thanks for letting me listen to the whole thing for free!

youtube-dl is the thing that can do it (it's a standalone CLI tool; there are probably other options and maybe browser plugins as well), but he's now made it not playable online before buying it, which means you can't get it without paying. (Not that you should have done anyway.)

Excellent find thanks! I know Kitson likes to remain elusive but would it have hurt to send out an email mentioning this?!

If the usual legendary forum members could record this I’d be enormously grateful :)

Inbox porn dropped. Might be my favourite August yet! 36+ hours of Kitson and
No walking/spending too much money. I love my house! I always said all the comedians and bands should just come to me instead.
