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.

Great laugh

Bloody funny. Who doesn't like a really good laugh anyway. This doesn't miss the mark at all. Every Comedian made me laugh and some had me crying in laughter.

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.

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.

Best yet!

Sometimes these are hit and miss, but this struck the funny bone. Just the right timing to showcase each comedian. Highly recommended.

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.
