Gets better every year

I remember mark Steel when he started in stand up. He was a slow-burner but one night compere Arthur smith said after Mark's set, 'mark steel ladies and gentlemen taking the roof off!' He stormed the gig and I became a fan. His radio shows are remarkably different to his stand up and again it took a while for me to like it. I'm now quite an annoying fan of his series as I just don't get how anyone can not like it! Truly brilliant and original work. On a final note; whatever happened to the compere Arthur Smith?

If you've heard on town, you've heard them all.

I like Mark Steel's style of storytelling and his delivery and always have. His simple and intelligent force are always refreshing. I found his Town series funny but after listening to a few, they all follow the same thread and you end up already knowing the end of jokes and the tie up at the end of the program.

Best not to listen to in one hit driving, but come back to them after a few weeks, its much more enjoyable.
