Following two sell-out UK tours, multi-award winning Welsh wonder Rhod Gilbert presents his eagerly awaited debut stand-up DVD. One of the UK’s hottest comedians, Rhod takes observational humour to a whole new level with his fantastical ranting on life’s minor irritations.
Following another stellar year for Jimmy Carr, his eighth live DVD Laughing & Joking is now here. Touring to over 1.5 million people and hosting hit shows 8 Out of 10 Cats, 10 O’Clock Live and The Big Fat Quiz of the Year means that Jimmy knows a thing or two about making people laugh. The show is packed with one-liners, stories & jokes. Some clever, some rude and a few totally unacceptable. Laughing & Joking is a chance to see this award-winning comedian at his near-the-knuckle best.
Having established herself as one of the UK’s best-loved comedians, Sarah Millican returns with a brand new live show, featuring all new material from her sell-out nationwide tour, Home Bird. Performing to her home crowd at the Newcastle Tyne Theatre, the British Comedy Award’s Queen of Comedy is giving up the party scene (Ann Summers), easing off on the drinking (fizzy pop equals wealthy dentists) and is settling down (taking her bra off). Determined to put down some roots, she now has cats (furry babies) and even a tree (she has a lot of mugs). On this, her third live DVD, you will learn what to take on a dirty weekend, the right amount of meals to have in a day and how to teach a pensioner to swear. Join her for some hilarious domestic bliss. “Sarah Millican is never less than belly-laugh hilarious”–The Mirror “An iron fist in a marigold glove.”–The Guardian
