Have a Comedy Christmas and Win Hilarious DVD’s of Bill Bailey, Simon Amstell, Kevin Bridges, Sean Lock and Dylan Moran

26 November 2010

There’s no better way to bring the family together over the festive season than with a good dose of belly laughter, and with this handy round-up of the best stand-up comedy titles out now and released next week, you’re guaranteed to find something to fill everyone’s stocking.

And to celebrate The Fan Carpet have put together a competition to give you the chance to win a five title DVD bundle of Hilarity featuring Bill Bailey, Simon Amstell, Kevin Bridges, Sean Lock and Dylan Moran!

Bill Bailey’s Dandelion Mind

The irrepressible Bill Bailey is back with his brand new DVD, which follows him being trapped by the ash cloud, hilarious rants on everything from celebrity to creationism, all brought to life by his trademark musical interludes. He sings an internet love song, a lament about punk heroes, Iranian hip-hop and plays a mean folk-bouzouki – is there nothing this grizzly bear can’t do?

Recommended for: anyone who enjoys laughing, ranting and rock and roll…

Simon Amstell’s Do Nothing: Live!

Following his successful six part BBC sitcom ‘Grandma’s House’, Simon Amstell’s razor sharp wit is back in his debut stand-up DVD, Do Nothing Live. The show reveals an awkward, honest and hilariously candid side to this rising star of comedy, plus the bonus features include a rare interview with Simon by fellow comedian Tim Key…

Recommended for: cool young things, philosophical musers and those that like a bit of thought to go with their laughter.

Kevin Bridges – The Story So Far…Live In Glasgow

At just 24 years old this guy is already becoming a star of the “pee in your pants” comedy scene and you’re simply going to love his unique brand of social commentary, astute observations and sharp one-liners. You’ll know him from BBC One’s ‘Live at the Apollo’ and ‘Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow’ because Bridges has had an extraordinary 12 months, but now it’s time to get better acquainted with the man himself.

Recommended for: wanting to be first on the scene with perhaps comedies hottest talent.

Sean Lock’s Lockipedia

Not content with being team captain of Channel 4’s ‘8 Out Of 10 Cats’ and one of the UK’s most highly acclaimed and original comedians, Sean also wanted to show off his encyclopaedic knowledge of ‘stuff’, so he took his giant Lockipedia brain on a tour of the UK. The result is this laugh-a-minute DVD, which was filmed at the height of Sean’s 100-date, total sell-out 2010 tour.

Recommended for: the perfect treat for a mate who wants to expand their mind with stuff that they never needed to know.

Aim Low: The Best Of Dylan Moran

This grumpy chap has been delighting audiences for years with his razor-sharp wit, cantankerous Irish charm and grumblings about life, religion, children and getting old, so if Christmas starts to feel a little too cheery and sickly sweet, you can just stick on this compilation of all the brilliant highlights from his previous three acclaimed DVDs and have a good old grumble. Simples…

Recommended for: the grumpy old man of the manor.
