Anyone know who's dealing with the press for the Hammersmith Appollo gig please?
Ticket link anyone?
at the Old Vic in Nottingham - absolutely top he was
seen him a couple of times now and can't understand why anyone cares. he's dismally unfunny and very predictable. there doesn't seem to be any point to anything he says. he never draws any conclusions. just aimless rants about nothing, often completely lacking in insight and intelligence. how does he get away with it?
just my little opinion
why did you watch him again, then?
I lived in Dubai until recently and when he performed there it was the closest thing to alternative culture we'd ever experienced in my three years of living there. I was really excited. Dubai exists on a diet of Cliff Richard concerts and the odd Lionel Richie show, if you're lucky, so this was a landmark event in Dubai.
But he lacked energy, anger and direction - isn't that meant to be what he does. And he is so arrogant. The number of times he told us about how many books he'd read, but then went on to talk about the Middle East and Islam while making endless factual errors (in front of many Arabs who couldn't believe how little he knew before opening his mouth).
First time I saw him was in the US about 8 years ago and he wasn't quite as rubbish. But his sense of humour is very underdeveloped - his jokes are embarrassingly lame.
Oh his massive ego and lack of talent. He just really upsets me... Sorry!
I saw him in oxford 3 years, he did around 2 and and a half hours, and i found him to be really funny and engaging.
Stand up comedy translates differently i suppose.
No idead re: press anyone?
he can do what he likes.
No idea who's doing press though, sorry
you shut the fuck up and listen.
