really not that funny, is he?
he takes something really, really flimsy and stretches it to within an inch of its life. the main feeling i get watching his sketches is one of awkwardness.
give up now?
I love him- for some reason I won't go into he has a special place in my heart. Some of his observational stuff used to be so funny (especially for people forom the west of scotland, who could laugh at themesleves.) Now it all just seems tired and, I dunno, a bit vindictive.
through that whole ''REQUIEM!'' thing on youtube. Then forgot about him.
Re-discovered him recently and thought he was a bit hit and miss from what I saw on youtube. Then I checked out his Twitter and thought he was an awful cunt.
his sketch show can be ok at times - very weird kind of humour.
then his twitter persona is excruciating
Hmmmmm, let's blame THE ENGLISH for a Sky poster in Glasgow with the English football team on it.
If not I'm embarassed, but he is right that the Sky poster has no place in Scotland (actually maybe around Ibrox it does).
that toilet clip you posted above is a perfect example though. a 5 year old child could come up with that. just don't see the humour in it
Surely you must have known someone like him in the sketch, someone who makes jokes so ridiculous that they are actually funny in a way that is hard to admit to.
for the surrealist humour. i enjoy those sketches more than the Dee Dee / Jaqueline McAfferty ones. Some are okay, but I enjoy it more than I dislike it.
BUT his Twitter was fucking dreadful. It clogged my feed up so much I had to kill it. Like Serafincnowiz.
Some sketches/characters don't quite work, but most of it is cracking.
His youtube odds and sods are hit and miss, but there's still some good stuff to be had, should you care (and if you don't, why would you be trawling through it).
If he annoys you via twitter or his blog then that's your own daft(limmy) fault.
In summary: cheer up.
i'm expressing an opinion, not comtemplating suicide.
he might have toned it down again, but there was a phase where he made Frankie Boyle look like Jimmy Crankie.
So funny. But he should stick to being on the screen, not in front of one.
I'd say he needs to cheer up.
He seems like that kind of self obsessed nutter.
Limmy, some of your sketches are funny. But you're a cunt.
But any of the youtube clips where it's just him being a cunt (Requiem for example), no. He's just being a cunt.
Maybe that's part of an Andy Kaufmann style performance piece, or maybe, maybe, Limmy is actually just an embittered cunt, with some funny ideas. Sometimes.
a sketch, there's no way there's anyone else on the end of the phone
i think what a lot of people underestimate is how well limmy's done for himself, from relative obscurity around 7/8 years ago to 2 series on the bbc and a lot of press coverage (albeit sometimes for the wrong reasons), so i doubt that he's just the embittered bam a lot of people write him off as.
i'd like to think it's all performance, right down to the bamming cunts up on his twitter/facebook. if not he's got serious problems mind you....
DOWN A ONE WAY STREE-EET
What things does he say?
HE is funny. And that's where the genius is.
he's got a funny head.
Reminds me of the times I would stay up till early morning watching shit TV.
Unless I have forgotten something obvious.
but his twitter is a bit mental. I think he just gets very very bored.
he's alright, but he's fucking awful on Twitter. So awful that it's ruined my enjoyment of his other work.
However - there's a series of monologues he did a few years ago on iTunes that are well worth listening to. They don't tend to be laugh-out-loud funny, but they're nevertheless a good listen.
Robert Florence, on the other hand, is brilliant in pretty much everything he turns his hand to, Twitter included. He's like Limmy if Limmy decided to stop being shit 60% of the time.
