How is he selling out arenas?
I watched a video of him on youtube and commented saying something like "I wish I could find him funny but I just can't" and someone replied with something like "den y r u wtchng tis vid? fuk of" sigh.
You'd be sickened if it came true.
but it was my polite way of saying "he's shit" but I still got abuse hurled my way anyway because expressing an opinion that is not positive is frowned upon in the youtube world. If you dare to dislike a video and say so people go "THEN WHY THE FUCK ARE YOU WATCHING IT?" grr.
however, now you know the truth.
He's good at presenting and whatnot, I'm just surprised.
Russell Howard isn't funny but I like him for his TV stuff too.
I'm not having a dig.
Also, comedy = subjective.
I'm going to one of his dramatic shows not a funny one. I've never seen him before I've just been excited to see this show as it sounds very moving.
Kitson = God.
I'm getting behind him for that reason, no idea if it or he is actually funny or not mind you
and see Russell Howard. He's agreed to take him, but is also taking him to Stewart Lee.
he did about a 20 minute part about how much he hates russell howard
IMAGINE IF AN ALIEN KIDNAPPED JOHN PRESCOTT, HE'D BE LIKE, AHAHAHA, WOULDN'T IT BE AMAZING!!!11
Howard employs a load of ghostwriters for his stand-up. And yeah, that's apparently the best they can come up with.
But this is the modern way of arena stand-up, isn't it? It won't threaten the status quo post-Sachs and families can like it. Like that nice John Bishop, because everything he says is so true to life, isn't it? This bloke called Micky Flanagan, who I'd previously never heard of, is doing a 2000-capacity venue tour in the new year with what seems to be an ageing Cockney schtick. This is the world Alexei Sayle and the Comic Strip fought for, a load of ersatz Tom O'Connors?
is awful from what I've seen. He sounds like a baby with a wet nappy, looks like a binman and has a load of very obvious jokes. I call him a 'Mock The Week' comedian.
he's alright, i spose, if largely obvious/wilfully bill bailey-ish
It's that Pub Landlord thing of the people who like it not understanding the spoof. I know that's funny in itself but it still really irritates me.
I heard a clip of his HILLARIOUS tv show today. I didn't laugh. He's a dickhead with an awful face.
