Just noticed this is on BBC2 tonight. I saw it when some little tinker uploaded it to youtube, and if you like stand-up where it's a bit more than just jokes, this is 100% worth watching. It's funny, but it's also brilliant writing, touching and well-crafted. Probably roughly 150 times better than 99% of plays or dramas that get written.

Set to record. This recommendation better be on the money, I've still not recovered from that book about the murderous Lakeland vicar (shudder!).

You didn't actually read that did you? Pretty strong, eh?

Beastings by Benjamin Myres. Brilliant writing, but may leave deep scars in the mind.

I've just finished Under the Rock, really interesting work of psychogeography. Must try some of his fiction.

Not an easy book to forget. That ending! Interesting how he wove real characters into the plot though.
