    Revolutionary Dreams

    Life, Published on 15/04/2019

    Life, Melalin Mahavongtrakul, Published on 09/04/2019

    » Sexy women, ghosts, simplistic plot, tendency to be naughty and violent. These are the stereotypical characteristics people have come to associate with the old-school Thai-style pulp comics that are close to disappearing from the market.

    Stay silly

    Life, Gary Boyle, Published on 10/04/2019

    » Depending on your age and sensibility, you either found Tom Green's comedy utterly hilarious or unfathomably puerile.

    Jimmy Carr makes triumphant return

    Life, Published on 03/04/2019

    » Jimmy Carr joins a growing list of comedians brought to the City of Angels by the Comedy Club Bangkok team Chris Wegoda and Drew McCreadie.

The Westin Grande ballroom on Sukhumvit Road is warmly lit, well-staffed, and perfectly adequate to accommodate Jimmy Carr-sized crowds.

    » Poet, novelist, piano player. And that was before Gil Scott-Heron had reached 20.

He preferred being called a "bluesologist".

This was precisely the case with 28-year-old British singer-songwriter Tom Odell.
