    it was like that the last time I saw him, expect it to be the same this Saturday. The show was also bedevilled by "hecklers" calling out for their favourite bits all the time: their favourite bits suggested they were only there to hear something shocking, rather than something thought-provoking which is what Doug rules at.

    Just got back from tonight's show. It was really good, some of the best stand up I've seen for ages. It took him a while to get into it though (or the booze to kick in).

    Yep! tonight was some woman behind us shouting 'midgets!' constantly. TBH I think she may have put off other potential hecklers . Doug dealt with her very well though :D

    The thing with comedy as oposed to music is you want to hear new stuff, because the old stuff isn't funny as you have already heard it. I asked someone if they wanted to come and see Doug and he said, Oh no I've not heard his jokes I dont want to come. People are fucking strange. Its not like seeing a band where you want to have heard the songs so you know them.

    I've heard he's playing in Bath, will probably go to the one there with a mate of mine who digs him and says he's ace live. Pretty funny guy IMO, seen videos where he handles some good heckling wankers etc, like at Big Chill (lol.....)

    He seems to have added a few nights at the Leicester Sq Theatre to this tour. I just got tickets for Friday 1st April

    Went to see him in Manchester on the 23rd. Really funny, even when he lost his train of thought and failed to deliver anything remotely humorous it was still fascinating to see him think on his feet and get things going again. Some really good new material mixed in with some classics, had the whole place roaring for most of the night. Great stuff.

    If there's tickets left I shall book a couple at the weekend. The theatre is a dingy shitehole, suits him down to the ground.

    You should be good for a while for tickets.
    I will book some this month though, not seen him once this year.
