Daniel Kitson

Fans of Daniel Kitson will all agree that it is a shame and a pain that there exists almost no commercial recording of this wonderful comedian’s work. There’s nothing on Amazon that I can see apart from Phoenix Nights, which he appears briefly in, and now regrets having . His own site (now finally up and running with loads of tour dates, pictures from Edinburgh 2006, and, yes – VIDEO) doesn’t have anything you can buy as such. Kitson even states on his website “I may release this if I ever get it finished”) – and this video extract is, to my knowledge, the first publicly available vid of the man’s own work. Please correct me if I’m wrong, I’d love to see more.

I first saw Kitson at the Brixton Comedy Club in 2004 and 2005. He comperes a show of typically 4 or 5 big names (we’ve had Rich Hall, Rob Newman, Lee Mack, Phil Nicol and Scott Capurro to name a few) and usually outdoes most of the acts whilst running the show. As a stout, balding, scraggly-haired,stuttering, self-effacing man, he is an unlikely stand-up comic, yet he is (Nestle) Perrier Best Act Winner 2002 (an award which Kitson himself has dubbed “dubious.”) His ability to win you over will leave you helpless to his charming on-stage personality.

Kitson is 90% certain to appear at the Resofit Benefit for London’s Listener Sponsored Radio Station Resonance FM on the 29th March, as well as appearing regularly all over London. See this man. He will have you screaming with laughter.
