He's never been funny and I just find him irritating on HIGNFY.
I hate the confused face he always does after jokes as well.
but improv thing he had on tv was awful
that surprisingly good series about silent comedy that was on bbc2 a few months back.
listen to what he can do on Just A Minute - very good quick humour
one of the best mainstream comedians around
But I hate his reliance on that face he pulls after anyone says anything on HIGNFY. It really grinds my gears, so to speak.
I prefer the Private Eye bloke WHOSE NAME ESCAPES ME by a nose.
I wish Boris Johnson would present it again.
And I prefer him as well.
HIGNFY is kinda responsible for boris becoming mayor
i used to think he was funnier, but they have been doing for HIGNFY for 35 series or something, thats impressive.
an ok series on for channel 5 where he visited china
which i was shocked to find out, it is pretty much on consistently though.
In a battle of wits, he will conquer...almost all the time.
I very rarely find his remarks witty, more 'wacky' for the sake of being. They never strike me as particularly clever, just a bit tedious.
I respect your opinion, but I'm afraid I'm going to have to agree to disagree (and more clique's).
