That's very creepy, I actually live in Basingstoke, I'm just a bit wary of giving away details on the net. However I shouldn't put myself at risk if I say that I live in a part that starts with a K and ends with a T.
People can be very prejudiced about Basingstoke and if you go and see stand up it doesn't matter where in the UK you are someone will take the piss out of Basingstoke. I remember when I started at Uni I got talking to a girl from Wokingham and she apologised when I said I was from Basingstoke and looked down her nose at me for the rest of the year!

Wow small world.. I live in a part that starts in a W and ends in a Y!

My friend went to a performing arts boarding school in Hertfordshire and you can imagine all the "posh" people's reaction when she announced where she's from! We have a rule that its fine for us to take the piss out of Basingstoke cos we come from here but no one else has the right to slag us off lol .. we have been known to get quite aggressive about that!

I don't think its that bad anyway, I can think of a lot worse places to live.

Such a cliche but yes what a small world.

It's a quality town, a lot better than some other places I've lived in and most people who are unpleasant about it usually haven't ever been.

In the Crap Towns book last year it said that going West Basingstoke had the tallest building between London and New York! That's a sign of a quality town in my view.

It's like your family it's OK take the piss out of them but you can get high and mighty if someone else does it. Mind you people don't tend to tell jokes they just instantly think they're above you.

It could be worse though, we could both live in Tadley!

Back to extras though another quality guest appearance from Les Dennis but still no lines about Reading I don't think. GRRRR.

A couple of good awkward moments last night - the bit with the black doll and the bit at the end with SMJ - but on the whole I'm having a hard time getting into this show. I'm just not finding all that funny.

I only caught the second half of this show last night but I have to admit it was nowhere near as funny as the first episode.

Some of the cring-worthy momments were still good though!

Oh well, I have just taken delivery of Animals and Politics on DVD -I have seen Animals before and it was very funny! Yeah!

Last night's episode was really good! I especially love the scenes with Andy's agent.

Andy and Maggie are so cute too, are we gonna see another Tim and Dawn??

I caught 10 seconds of it - and all I saw was Barry from Eastenders (with hair) and it scared me so I turned it off.

Was that the last ep?

I don't know I hope not!

Barry's great in it.. he was licking envelopes for the agent last night and I love how the agent actually calls him Barry
