Daniel Kitson is by a long stretch my favourite comedian on road. Having seen both his excellent stand up shows at the Hob over the years and full show ’66a Church Road’ ( with an incredible set design) I am really happy to get my hands on the full audio of ‘The Ballad of Roger and Grace’ show which he wrote with Gavin Osborn for the Regents Park Open Air Theatre a few years back. Available for the minuscule price of £2.50…a bargain. Pick it up at his bandcamp here and if you are unfamiliar with Daniel Kitson check out a clip of one of my favourite sketches performed in Melbourne back in ’03. Comedy gold.

Scottish artist, Robert Montgomery, has been spreading his poetry across advertising billboards for the last 10 years in his trademark white font/black background style. To herald his new show at KK Outlet in East London, he’s created a series of 3 large billboard poems on Old Street, which reference the moral failure of capitalism, the concerns of the Occupy movement, and new ideas of freedom in the city. The show opened on February 3rd and will continue until February 25th. To read a short interview with the artist/poet about his work, check out this article in The Independent.

One of the most shocking and chilling videos I have ever seen. An absolute disgrace and horrible excuses for human beings. “Chicago police are currently questioning six Chicago teenagers after footage of a brutal beating of a 17-year old Chinese student went viral on Monday. Amidst the controversy of the events, street artist David Choe has chosen to immortalize the teen in his latest wall mural. The motivation for the piece stems from Choe’s observation and interpretation of the victim who – despite continued verbal slurs and physical abuse, remained resolute and unyielding to take off his backpack in the face of the brutal attacks. In the midst of outspoken political activists calling for action, it is good to see artist like David Choe using their respective mediums of communication to speak their voice”.
