There's a sketch in Limmy's Show where our intrepid narrator tells a friend about the unfortunate circumstances in which his dad has passed on. Not only does his father have a surprise AIDS diagnosis to contend with, but they've had to amputate his arms and legs, so that his family couldn't even hold his hand before he met his demise. All the while, his mate's ringtone keeps playing, and so this horrifying account of loss is sound-tracked by intermittent blasts of " The Holiday Rap ". It's a trope that, during my time with Brian "Limmy" Limond — father, cycling enthusiast, techno fan, comedian — is a constant: he can talk about genuinely horrifying stuff, fictional or otherwise, yet it'll be consistently hilarious. In normal circumstances, a man shouldn't be able to tell you about a dream of stuffing an old man into a tree and setting him ablaze through stifled laughter. Certainly not in a pub in Glasgow. But that's Brian, or maybe Limmy — it's hard to tell the difference. Whether it's from the TV — Limmy's Show ran for three series and a Christmas special, while more recently he's had much-lauded guest spots on Charlie Brooker's Newswipe — or from his active, often controversial Twitter use, you'll have heard of Limmy by now. The former web developer has reached beyond his initial success in Scotland, where he's sold out stand-up shows and won our version of the BAFTAs. He's also inarguably the best person from the UK on Vine , where some strange characters come to life through him, whether through DIY or finding discarded bottles of Frosty Jack's by a dual carriageway.

In comedy terms, Brian Limond is the nearest thing that dance music has to a patron saint. Despite it being ripe for sending up, few others have managed to take post-club gurn-a-thons or terrible dance music videos and make them funny. But Limmy has. Originally a web developer he touched upon the clubbing world there too, making Flash games and websites for the likes of Soma and dance festival Homelands , he also started making tunes on his Atari ST and a copy of Cubase in the 90s. Long a fan of crafting electronic music — but with no interest whatsoever in making tunes for release — he uploads brilliantly daft cover versions to his SoundCloud page, like his recent Italo-house take on the Turkish Delight theme. Anything at the Arches was good. There was Slam and Pressure, but also there was Inside Out, which was harder stuff. I liked it. It was folks mostly drinking rather than taking stuff. Pressure was a nicer atmosphere on a Friday.
If you do attend parties like that, expect her to drink 7-Up and volunteer as the designated driver, and to be completely repulsed if you drink too much. Money is not everything although the ex certainly has her share. See where it goes.
