    Micky Flanagan

    Went to see Micky Fanagans new show last night in Southend, if your a fan you'll love his new material. Its not PC and very risky in the current climate. He's says he does not care! He indicated that if he does a major tour it may well be his last. For us in the South he's a bit of a national treasure, certainly one of the last old school comics still out there delivering humour. For me he's up there with Billy Connelly in his prime.

    Probably my favourite comic now Sean Locke is sadly not with us. Pushes the acceptable boundaries for sure, but for comedy, not purely an attempt to shock.

    I have never seen him live but would happily pay if he has a show in my area.

    Saw him live in Belfast a few years ago, loved it. There was a couple in front of us left within the first 10 mins, obviously had no idea who they were going to see.

    Saw him in Birmingham years ago. I canít understand these people who get up and walk out all disgusted, surely if you book tickets to see someone youíve an idea of whatís likely to happen.

    He did a couple of work in progress shows at Portsmouth Guildhall back in November which I was fortunate enough to get tickets for.

    Micky was absolutely brilliant. The way he fed off the audience (and dealt with hecklers) was outstanding!

    I popped round to the stage door after the show and he was kind enough to stop for a chat and a picture - a very unassuming and down to earth person in the flesh.

    I went to his Work in Progress show too late last year & it was excellent. When he went off script & got lost in his stories it was hilarious. Very funny topics, not always pc, well worth a night out.
