For anyone who might be a bit confused - Daniel Kitson is an excellent stand-up comedian. We saw him play in the Union Chapel which suited the content and sermon-like delivery perfectly. You can see a bit of him on youtube here - but I recommend going to his website and subscribing to his podcast (which consists of old live shows and short stories) if you've yet to have the pleasure.
It feels wrong - churlish - to have summed up and paraphrased the show so crudely. Try and catch it if you can!
