Spotted my favourite living comedians Julian Barratt (left) and Noel Fielding (aka The Mighty Boosh) today on the corner of Oxford Street and Rathbone Place, and chatted to them whilst taking this candid cheery picture.

“Look, there are my favourite comedians!” I said brightly to my friend J who was walking with me, and without hesitation I stopped and produced the now-famous Sony Ericsson K800i 3 mega-pixel blog phone. “I’ve bought everything you’ve ever done,” I said loudly, as I took the picture. “And I promise I won’t embarrass you by shouting “Old Greg!” which raised the resigned smile from Julian and the cheeky grin you see in the picture from Noel.

Making comedians laugh for your snaps is, I decided, like recommending floss to your dental hygenist. Or taking in a sandwich in for the local cafe owner. Or calling up a newspaper and reading them news items as if you think they really need to know these things are going on.

Actually, I must do that last one.

    I always thought making comedians laugh was an achievment in itself!

    But the mistake people often make is by saying a well-known catchphrase specific to the comedian and expecting them to find it amusing, then being surprised when met with a stony glare.

    Hi there – great blog. I’m from a London newspaper, and am currently looking for good blog entries to run as extracts in a new column. I’ve just read your recent entries and wondered if you’d give me ring to discuss the possibility with yours.
    With best wishes,
