A recording of stand-up comedian Daniel Kitson's Edinburgh show from 2004, about dancing and other things. (4-part audio (click next), can also download from the podcast feed on this page, has rude words so possibly NSFW, funny)

Also like Me and Bob, which is just a story, more towards the storytelling and theatre side of things he's been leaning towards in recent years. danielkitson.com doesn't seem to be working at the moment, so this will do as the link to his website.

This is quite a good set - not his very best necessarily, but the best (and only) set available from him legally, free and online, as far as I know. Enjoy :)

Kitson is tops.

Brilliant! Thanks. And a timely reminder that I need to book tickets for this year's show, as it seems to be selling out rather sharpish...

That was great! Never heard him before, thanks!

Robot Rowboat: If you mean It's The Fireworks Talking - yeah :) Sadly I didn't and probably won't get to see it this year, but he's planning to release many of his shows (including the new one) on CDs, DVDs and vinyl - so that's excellent news!

I saw him a few years ago (before he was famous!) and loved his interaction with the audience, engaging rather than mocking. Also, great impact opening, he comes out, big flannel shirt, thick glasses and bushy beard "I'm not a pedophile, I just like the look"

Kitson is brilliant. Listening now, I think I saw a version of this show on tour, it's great to hear it again, thanks for reminding me about him.
