2018 Review: Top Comedy Specials 2018

TV comedy specials are like arseholes. Everyone has one. Well, not quite everyone, but it has certainly felt that way recently with Netflix dropping standup shows as if they are going out of style. The streaming network has lots more to come in the new year and I've got to come clean, it is getting hard to keep up with them. For example, the recent Ellen DeGeneres special might have featured in the chart below – except that I haven't had a chance to watch it yet. Maybe it will appear in next year's chart.

Review: James Acaster, Vaudeville Theatre, WC2

There is a theory among performers that critics get into a huddle during the interval and decide what they are going write about a show and that's why we often agree about gigs. Can I say once and for all that this doesn't happen. Or if it does they meet up without telling me. When James Acaster premiered his new show Cold Lasagne Hate Myself 1999 at the Vaudeville Theatre in October I didn't even know the i and the Guardian were in the room.
