Best yet!

Sometimes these are hit and miss, but this struck the funny bone. Just the right timing to showcase each comedian. Highly recommended.

Brought a tear to my eye...

Some of these acts are so funny, the future of comedy... I listen to audible as I walk for exercise during the lockdown! Thankfully, no one can see me laughing like a fool... I had a stroke 7 years ago and I’m learning to walk, I must look like a right f**ktard, as wall like a cripple, crying and chuckling to myself!! 5*’s

Good Job It Was Free

The ones who've made it onto BBC radio or television are worth a listen.

Unfortunately, the majority haven't.

Boring

Didn't care for it. didn't find any of them funny. Maybe it's one of those shows were you had to have been there.

Equality of outcome doesn't work for comedy

Obviously the producers we're striving for equality of outcome but this sadly resulted in some unfunny, nay, boring acts. one comedian even comments at one point that someone was sleeping through his set. please choose your acts based on talent not identity politics!

good fun

Not every single act was great but many were. A bit of fun to listen to if you don't feel like being serious for a while.

Great laugh

Bloody funny. Who doesn't like a really good laugh anyway. This doesn't miss the mark at all. Every Comedian made me laugh and some had me crying in laughter.

Hilarious

I’m pretty picky when it comes to comedy but I was super impressed with most of the comedians on here.
Fantastic if you want a laugh! Highly recommend.

Too awkward

Minor league comics straining for a laugh. In fairness I didn't persist with much of it because I felt so embarrassed for the performers. Perhaps I missed some gems.
