Anglonerd Gift Guide 2015 (Comedy)

 

 

Stewart Lee

When it comes to highbrow alternative comedy, there really is nothing better than Stewart Lee. If You Prefer a Milder Comedian, Please Ask for One is a little more accessible to the masses and contains the famous Pear Cider routine. 90s Comedian is a great work of art, too, though, and contains a rug-pulled-out-from-under-you device that includes some of the most blastphemous material you’ve ever heard, but not without good reason.848

Dara O Briain Talks Funny or any other Dara O Briain DVD is accessible comedy with intelligence, good or pretty much any sort of comedy pallet.

Richard Herring

There are a lot of Richard Herring DVDs to choose from. This is a good one about growing up. It’s got plenty of intelligence, but it also fits comedy fans with a childish sense of humor.

The Alternative Comedy Experience season 2

A fantastic introduction to British alternative comedy, with short standup slots from a variety of performers. Season 1 was great, but season 2 was better. It doesn’t matter which one you start with.

Tony Law

There are a couple Tony Law standup DVDs out there. This is one of the better ones. It’s a risky gift because he’s not to everyone’s taste, but it may be a good fit for your Canadian friends.483
