Jeremy Hardy is really funny

The highlight of my podcast week is the Friday nights when the BBC Friday Night Comedy podcast includes an episode of The News Quiz (as it does this week: MP3), and the highlight of the News Quiz is always Jeremy Hardy, who makes me laugh so hard with his incredible deadpan delivery and quick wit that I'm often in danger of wetting myself.

I just bought a full seven seasons' worth of Hardy's radio show, Jeremy Hardy Speaks the Nation from AudioGo (which sells them without DRM as MP3s!), and spent a solid week in comedy heaven. If you like fast, funny, lefty comedy that acerbic, smart and unrelenting, this is just about your best entertainment buy.

Above, an episode of Robert Llewellyn's Carpool show, wherein he gives people a drive and interviews them with cameras all around his car.
