what is he like?
however controversial he is, he is bloody funny
he is bloody fast too
thats only your opinion, different people ahve different tastes
your fucking wasting the space anyway
That is all.
nice intelligent comment
An intelligent comment in a thread commending a bigoted, racist homophobe comedian?
You expect too much.
yawn yawn yawn
the night before last.
He wasn't funny. Forget the racism, homophobia, whatever, I'd have more-or-less forgiven him (or at least understood why he was popular) if he was funny. He wasn't. He has a Christmas song called Jingle Bollocks. Jokes about how fat his wife is.
If the last 20-30 years of comedy had never happened, he'd surely still have been average.
I did enjoy the bit with him in the gym and "now that's what I call camp trance vol 4" playing.
Too much reliance on the rule of three in his set ups for my taste.
I remember reading an article where a heckler got the better of him and he resorted to trying to hit them.
I wouldn't say he's very controversial either, no more than any "salt of the earth" type in a conservative pub with a dog and a fireplace. I like some imagination to go into my hatred.
See: Doug Stanhope's excellent bit in Deadbeat Hero about trying to convince his dying mother to be a suicide bomber. That's fucking funny.
