Mike Wilmot – As Recommended by Stewart Lee

In Stewart Lee’s book: Stewart Lee How I Escaped My Certain Fate: The Life and Death of a Stand-Up Comedian, he recommends Gary Wilmot thus:

Just when you think you can’t stand to hear another middle-aged male comic moaning about marriage and how he can’t please his wife anymore, along comes this Falstaffian Canadian who can invest an hour on these tired old subjects with unexpected levels of humanity, surprise and inventiveness entirely absent from the work of more self consciously original comics.

That’s good enough for me and after watching these videos I agree. He’s harsh, he’s rude but Gary Wilmot is funny. I wouldn’t watch the last video on your iPhone during a walking tour of a convent though.
