- The List

If you like your stand-up slow burning with the odd moment of boiling over into comedy scalding then this Glasgow-born Yorkshire wag is quite probably your man. He stormed our hearts with his bell-ringing tour de force in which he spoke fondly of his favourite words before giving us some comedy with sad bits in a show rather obtusely entitled Comedy With Sad Bits. We expect world domination to arrive at his door sometime soon, so nab a glimpse while you can still see him from your seat without the aid of binoculars. n The Stand, Glasgow, Thu 2 Nov; the Stand, Edinburgh, Fri 3 & Sat 4 Nov.
