Daniel Kitson is what you might commonly call a ‘comedian’s comedian’. He’s the sort that famous funny people like Stewart Lee will name-check as their favourite, a man whose comedy is both silly and sublime.

For example, in previous outing After The Beginning, Before The End he said that “hope is a life kept full of gaps, just in case” – a profound thought, I’m sure you’ll agree. But then he also has a show called Love, Innocence and the Word Cock.

In Something Other Than Everything this dichotomy is in action again, with deep-thinking on big topics like isolation and progress. Its mission is to “momentarily alter the function of language and invent a new form of stand up comedy”. There may also be cock jokes – tasteful ones, though.
