Can someone explain?
What is it that he once did or currently does that makes us tolerate him as a drunken celeb.
(I saw him on THREE separate occasions in the space of A WEEK)
was it on telly Ben?
We've talked about this before...
that was good.
and his skaning nob cheese all over her mush.
go tell your mum I'll be round later to defrost her breaded fish
look at this pic of ed the duck that i found
no need to defrost, it goes straight in the oven
what have you ever done?
'In the early 1990s he presented his own chat show, Rivron, in which the entire set floated in the River Thames.'
I read this as 'the entire set floated down the River Thames,' which briefly made me laugh uncontrollably as I imagined the camera filming it drifting off into the distance and then out to sea.
that wouldn't be funny at all.
and they made the connection between rivron and river-on and then went home? this is terrible
I don't know what he does. When I hear his name I think of that stuffed rat in a bin that was on before I was born or something? (old person needed to fill in the details)
far less offensive than Nicky Campbell and all of T4. Oh, and Richard Bacon. And shit loads of stand ups who are on TV nowadays.
You're thinking of Noel Edmonds.
staring forlornly as they hear the fruit of the most creative and exciting time of their lives summed up as a 'stuffed rat in a bin' is truly heartbreaking.
I just don't get what he is/was famous for. What was the thing that made him?
It's like he's the one of the Comic Strip .... but he actually isn't. Or Not the 9'Clock news? NO.
Maybe I've stumbled too close to the truth. If I die in mysterious circumstances overnight - someone please make a documentary?? not you warn.
i see your point. All i'd say is though, be thankful he's not Jonathan Wilkes.
More breaking Rivron news as I get it.
She's also responsible for Telly Tubbies, in the night garden and numerous other heavily-licensed lucrative franchises.
She can weather Meowingtons scorn.
Anneka Rice would pick them up in her helicopter or something.
He wrote the theme tune to London's Burning too. WHO KNEW??
I actually DO want your love.
But would Annabel Croft???
I used to think that programme was gently enjoyable, then I realised there was nothing big or clever complaining about things that everyone finds annoying. *Something about that's all DiS is anyway*.
it's a pretty paltry wiki page.
Half the stuff he's done is the sort of stuff you do when you're ALREADY a celeb.
EEEEEYYYY RAT FANS! EEEEYYYYY RAT FANS!
French & Saunders! French & Saunders!

and sartorial awareness:
*googles definition of sociopath*
pretty sure he was.
with the early Comedy Store crowd. He seemed to keep him around because they liked getting pissed with him. He's certainly never had any discernable talent.
I remember him for these, has he died?
Rory McGrath or something.
I only remember Doobie Duck's Disco Bus.
which is really quite a feat. I can't think of any other celebrities I get mixed up with puppets.
always pissed, no projects in the pipeline before the next Hootenanny.
and, when visiting, we oft would imagine how wonderful it might be if we PERCHANCE SAW RR IN THE FLESH
but it never happened and i probably wouldn't have recognised him anyway
