Live at the Apollo and having a cheer-up chuckle
« on: March 30, 2018, 07:08:22 PM »
I've just watched Live at the Apollo series 11 episode 1 on BBC iplayer. Nish Kumar did a left wing version of Monopoly.  It was hilarious but held a lot of truth. Well worth a watch!

If I'm feeling low I often look on BBC iplayer to see if there's a new Live at the Apollo programme because almost always it lifts my mood a little. It's noticeable that most comedians lean towards the left which makes me think,  looking at our government, we don't have enough comedians in the UK.

A good laugh is an excellent tonic, I find - glad you were able to enjoy the comedic performances, Fiz (I think I saw one of the Apollo series a few years ago, might give this one a look now!)  What brings a welcome giggle to the rest of you?

For me, most of the laughing I do is at myself for doing something a bit daft  >whistle< Also, the tried and trusted 'funny cat videos on the Internet' will usually bring a smile >blackcat<

Comedy is always good when I'm feeling low. Netflix and Channel 4 have great comedy. Sometimes I rewatch episodes of Brass Eye.

''looking at our government, we don't have enough comedians in the UK''  >lol< >lol<

Certainly there are no politicians in our government, all I see are a bunch of wannabe comedians bad ones at that.
