Has an OBE.
Can anybody tell me WHY?
The Queen is actually really racist.
As she was pinning the award to his lapel, she whispered in his ear "I really hate those dago bastards too. Keep up the good work."
he doesn't present the weather
In December 2006, Davidson was embarrassed by a 15-year-old boy who heckled him during a performance of his pantomime Dick Whittington in Kent. Reportedly, Davidson came on stage at the Orchard Theatre in Dartford, delivering the scripted line, "Do you know who I am?” The boy, a Scout in full uniform, loudly replied, "Yes, you’re a fucking wanker." According to The Sun, Davidson was enraged and spent the remainder of the first half of the show in a sullen mood. He reportedly tried unsuccessfully to find the boy's scoutmaster during the interval to personally address his heckler.
Why has that scout not got an OBE?
Political correctness gone mad!
Obviously Better (than) Others
Comedian Jim Davidson last night refused to tread the boards at a Plymouth theatre after he took exception to wheelchair users in the front row.
He had asked the theatre's front-of-house manager to move them to the sides but his request was refused. Davidson then pulled out of the show 15 minutes after his warm-up act took to the stage.
A spokesman for the Plymouth Pavilions, where the comedian was performing as part of his national part of his national Vote4Jim tour, said: "Jim Davidson apparently took exception to a number of wheelchair users in the front stalls of the Pavilions Arena.
"Mr Davidson cited the fact that a proportion of his act was aimed at disabled customers and that he would be unable to perform under these circumstances."
In a statement released on his behalf today, Davidson explained he "took the mick" out of everyone in the front row of his shows.
"As all the people in the front row were in wheelchairs I feared it would appear I was specifically targeting disabled people. I asked if just some would mind moving.
"Much of my act depends upon audience reaction and in fact one part of the show involves getting the audience to gang up against the front row."
But that does kind of make sense
if he was an at all talented comic/entertainer he could have worked around it though
Good, though. :D
I've read it before
once my friends nan saw him on the street in great yarmouth and said, "coo-eee 'ello jim!" or whatever it is that nans say. he said... "fuck off". she was gutted.
i think that's why he got an obe.
he does lots of "morale boosting" shows for "our boys" "out there" with bfbs and stuff
SORRY TO RUIN IT EVERYONE
everyone who entertains the troops gets awarded, the troops are the most important people in the whole world, they didn't sign up of their own accord, oh no, poor troops, let's send them a big fucking cake
