Andy Zaltzman and Guests: Battersea Arts Centre, London, 2015
One of the most intelligent and consistently funny comedians working today, I had always wanted to see Daniel Kitson at the Edinburgh Fringe but when I tried to book his shows would always sell out year after year. So, I was delighted that he was on the bill when I went to see Andy Zaltzman and Guests at Battersea Arts Centre in London in 2015.
Kitson was an extraordinary performer. He had a rare ability to make a remark about a trivial thing worth listening to seem amazing so that the audience hang on his every word. The odder the subject is the funnier he seemed to get. His storytelling excellence and delivery was threaded with ordinary conversation and extremely funny humour.
