Gift Guide: The Best Christmas Presents For Comedy Lovers
Christmas is officially around the corner and before you've spent all your pay cheque on Pigs In Blankets scented Pringles candles (yep, that's a thing), or one too many bleak festive sandwiches, why not splash out on something that'll actually make your family laugh?
When Aunty Mable's cracking into the second bottle of gin on the 25th, or the cousin no one remembers inviting sits you down for a story about how his cat died on Christmas Eve, wheel out these comedy gifts to get everyone back in the spirit.
For fans of stand up comedy:
Noel Fielding - An Evening With Noel Fielding
For fans of the surreal and absurd, 'An Evening With Noel Fielding' will hit the spot. It's got something for everyone; stand up, characters, animation and songs. But don't take this article's word for it - Noel talked all about it in our interview with him. Enjoy!
Russell Kane - Live
'Live' sees Russell Kane giving a one-off performance of some of his best routines, with the high-energy delivery he is known for. We recently met Russell and got him to answer some quick fire questions for us (spoiler alert: basically every answer involves monkeys and sex).
Paul Chowdhry - PC's World
Dara O Briain - Crowd Tickler
'Crowd Tickler' was filmed during a 150 date sold-out tour and covers topics from Gloria Estefan, to Twitter, to the NHS. We picked O Briain's brain about the new show, so have a watch to find out more!
For book lovers...
Steve Coogan - Easily Distracted
Steve Coogan has released his first autobiography, which has received great reviews. 'Easily Distracted' lifts the lid on how he got into comedy and acting, and what it's really like to be Alan Partridge.
Bridget Christie - A Book For Her
Bridget Christie's first book follows her award-winning show, 'A Bic For Her', and is a funny, feminist and personal read. It's inspired by the time a man farted in the Women’s Studies Section of a bookshop and it 'changed her life forever'.
Chris (Simpsons Artist) - Motivational Quotes to Help You Be More Positive
Chris (Simpsons artist) has gained a ridiculous amount of fans on Facebook because of his hilarious MS Paint drawings of weird and wonderful characters. According to the description, the 'words and pictures inside of this book will instantly make you feel more positive about yourself even after just having a look at them for about a second or 3 seconds' - sign us up.
Seriously stupid stocking-fillers...

Got a beardy beloved you want to really annoy over the Christmas period? Glitter beards are SO last week - decorate your Dad's face with beard baubles (and watch your Mum cry as glitter's trodden into the carpet).
Knitted Willy Warmer
You, to any male loved one:
"Here, I got you a knitted willy warmer for Christmas."
"Thank you! AND it's got Minions on it! Now all my Christmas dreams can come true!"*
