Alistair Barrie introduces a selection of stand up comedians recorded live before a sold-out audience at The Pleasance Theatre in Islington, London at the end of 2013.
You can gain useful vocabulary from John Lloyd of things that we don't have words for but should, and Mary Bourke entertains us with a dark response to the unreasonable. John Robins surprises us with an unusual Dickensian condition he's developed, and Nish Kumar explains some of the awkward social situations he's fallen into.
Bob Mills explains life as an overweight man and Alistair Barrie celebrates Britain's love of complaining.
