Is all over channel 4 tonight. One of the most loathsome comedians going.
That make their living on 'quizcoms' making predictable jokes about Nick Clegg being a pushover and David Cameron being posh.
I dislike each and every one of them.
Young comic talent Jack Whitehall, who is now starring in Channel 4's brand new drama Fresh Meat, takes to the stage of Hackney Empire and reflects on My Funniest Year, 2005. Jack chooses 2005 because for him it was a momentous year - the year he turned 17, left school, and lost his virginity in Antony Worrall Thompson's gastro pub. There was also Live 8, the hunting ban, the introduction of 24 hour drinking and the launch of YouTube. My Funniest Year is a comic journey rich in belly laughs from beginning to end as Jack gives his unique take on the events that shaped the year and his own life. Jack also takes a pop at noteworthy TV shows of the year, including the launch of Come Dine with Me, and delves into the public reaction to the celebrity weddings of Prince Charles and Camilla, Peter Andre and Jordan, and Ken and Deirdre in Coronation Street.
is TWO HOURS LONG.
Or whatever his name is, is far far far far far far far worse.
Who finds this prick amusing?
His whole act is based around cockney I CHUCKED A MONKEY ON IT AND TOOK THE BIRD AAT FOR A NIIIICE SLAP UP DINNA banter.
He's obviously big on cockney schtick, but it's more 1950s cheeky chappy cockney than PUT IT IN THE MIXAHHHHHH lad cockney.
I don't think he's great, but he's roused the odd chuckle out of me.
My point was just that he's definitely not Irish LAD comedy.
in a Donegal accent.
Read that on some Chris Morris forum.
His father was an agent for Judi Dench, Colin Firth and Richard Griffiths, and wrote the memoir, Shark-Infested Waters
He is younger and more handsome than me though, so I'll refrain from being too personal in my criticisms.
It was completely the other way round. You little shit-stirrer.
and I think we're okay now. He's posted the odd smilie in response to me and they all seemed sarcasm-free.
I sort of defended you in another thread today and this is how you repay me. Tsk tsk.
I'm closing all my curtains now. You've destroyed my self esteem.
I didn't realise he was actually posh, but born in Westminster, educated at Marlborough, brother called Barnaby sort of says it all.
I don't find him that offensive, and he was okay in Fresh Meat the other night, but looking at his wiki page he wasn't exactly playing against type.
I was going to send her poorly spelled 'UR BROTHER IS SHIT LOL' messages but then I realised that that's what they expect from the PROLES.
Doesn't mind laughing at himself. They showed his wedding video back when he did bits and bobs for Richard and Judy's chat show. He got hitched in Vegas with the rev (or whatever) saying BY THE POWER OF GREY SKULL, I PRONOUNCE YOU MAN AND WIFE! Awesome.
Pattinson was there as well. WHERE IS MY COMEDY/MOVIE CAREER? WHERE?
...was sending a bitchy comment about Whitehall on twitter in private, and then accidentally posted it public. Loads of people @'d Jack Whitehall in the RT's and he got pretty upset. A similar thing also happened to James Cordon. People decided to point out that just because he was fat, doesn't mean he is in anyway funny. I guess the same can be applied to Chris Moyles.
Its easy to argue that comedy is the most subjective of the arts, but its also possible to point out lazy comedy, cliche's and bland copying.
but he ain't good. I hate the ones who feel the need to run all over the stage like it's a sweet shop and they're eight.
are that he is slightly less awful than Russell Kane.
He doesn't seem a particularly nasty person at all (unlike, say, McIntyre, who is supposed to be a complete knob in real life), just a bit posh and someone's who had a bit of a fast-track in life.
He did'nt seem that funny, or friendly, but I was probably being a prick. But he used to see someone on my course's housemate and he was a bit of a cokehead apparently, so very similar to this guy he's playing in Fresh Meat.
no really, who? british people are not celebrities.
but then I saw him on the million pound drop last night and really looked at his face and he's pretty hot. I fancy him now.
Is it worth my time finding out so I can contribute to this thread?
Its the fact he is so terrible. There are some great comedians out there who don't get a look in, or who are shoved in late night BBC4 slots (like stewart lee). Whitehall has no originality, and has had his career fast tracked before fully developing his skills.
