Equality of outcome doesn't work for comedy

Obviously the producers we're striving for equality of outcome but this sadly resulted in some unfunny, nay, boring acts. one comedian even comments at one point that someone was sleeping through his set. please choose your acts based on talent not identity politics!

good fun

Not every single act was great but many were. A bit of fun to listen to if you don't feel like being serious for a while.

Genuinely a good laugh with a few mediocre sets

Really had a good time listening to this, obviously not all sets were great but comedy is extremely subjective and the majority of this recording was absolutely outstanding. Always put me in a good mood.

Too awkward

Minor league comics straining for a laugh. In fairness I didn't persist with much of it because I felt so embarrassed for the performers. Perhaps I missed some gems.

very average comedians

A lot of the time I found myself fast forwarding hoping to find a very entertaining comedian. A majority were very average or boring. I gave up after episode 3.

not that funny

I enjoy discovering new comedians but I abandoned listening to this. My time is better spent listening to other comedy events.

Not at all my sense of humour didn't find it funny

Gave up - it was irritating rather than than funny and when he started singing that awful out of tune song I had to turn it off. Now just can't wait to remove it from my gadget.
