A classic from the surreal one-liner king’s back catalogue, as told on ‘28 Acts in 28 Minutes’.
An inventive costume idea from the ‘Catastrophe’ star and Twitter supremo.

The ‘Flight of the Conchords’ star poses an interesting question on this episode of ‘John Oliver’s New York Stand Up Show’.
Surely many will disagree with the ‘Last Week Tonight’ host’s views on pumpkin spiced lattes…
Email chains. Remember them? As well as a Twitter hot shot, Rhys James is a whip-smart stand-up. Well worth checking out.

Wise words from the softly-spoken one-liner merchant and Perrier Award-winner, from his album ‘Standup Comedian’.

Well worth watching this whole clip – it’s textbook Seinfeld, taken from his 1998 special, ‘I’m Telling You for the Last Time.’
Poor old Adam Hess. He’s a Foster’s Best Newcomer-nominated stand-up. Still not invited to parties.
I wasn't invited to any halloween parties so to get that spooky feeling I just ate a sandwich next to a photo of my nan in the dark— Adam Hess (@adamhess1) November 3, 2014
‘Parks and Recreation’ star Aziz Ansari’s ‘Buried Alive’ is an effortlessly funny show. But this ‘Modern Ghosts’ routine is a particular highlight.

This Halloween I'm going to dress as a zombie Suffragette to represent the death of feminism. LOLJK. I'll probably just be a sexy cat again.— Bec Hill (@bechillcomedian) October 31, 2013
