ANOTHER week, another festival - with the Sheffield Comedy Festival beginning on Tuesday.
There’s never any shortage of stuff going on in the city at this time of year - the MADE festival, Off The Shelf, Festival Of The Mind and Fright Night have all either happened or happening this and next month.
But the comedy extravaganza - featuring more than 90 acts across several city venues - has to be among the best of the bunch.
It’s like a mini-Edinburgh, so it is.
Just looking through the programme this year was enough to make this column laugh. And I don’t just mean because of Sharrow Vale-based artist Pete McKee’s typically on-the-money cartoon, below.
There was also the piece on comedian Mick Ferry who must deserves a full house, if for no other reason than for describing himself as “the thinking woman’s Stan Ogden”.
Give that man a Perrier Award already.
ONE more from Gary Rowley?
Go on, then...
“I moved from Pyongyang to Seoul - I needed a change of career.”
A COUPLE of responses to this column reporting that Nick Clegg appears on a pair of underpants going on sale this Christmas.
Strangely, not one of them with a joke that can be repeated.
Who knew you readers were such fans of, um, toilet humour?
