what's his appeal?
he's definitely too popular to be liked
i'm just enquiring honestly.
and with more channel four funding than Russell Brand. Hi....I'm we_blew_it and new to the night shift.
I have nowt against the chap. Cheers.
is that he's Julian Barratt's comedy partner. He's in his late thirties, is unmarried, and currently resides in North London.
Thanks for asking!
but he's not half as funny or wacky as he thinks he is.
this is the main reason why chaps hate him, isn't it?
people are very bitter and jealous
and I was like 17 and an idiot.
Now he's really annoying and i'm still an idiot. What gives?
more and more room to just 'do his own thing'.
like a butterfly in a chainsaw factory
like a man on a bike floating up trees chasing squirrels
how big was that fish mike? dunno, how small was the cheese it was holding though?
oh look an oblique drugs/art/philosophy reference wrapped up in spiders from mars attire. up a ladder with a funny hat on. changing a light bulb
LARKS A PLENTY!
meo's so schmindie
but one of those comedians who I can't ever love, because I can't get around the fact that they'd be insufferable in real life.
and more sufferable because of that.
he's a proper arty farty punter though. the distilled essence of London hipsterism. he's so hip the mainstream love him (kind of, they just like that he dresses like a tramp version of david bowie and does funny voices and sings a bit, he's a post-modern vaudevillien).
I sense he might have some interesting things to say. Or he might be totally and utterly shallow, which is even more interesting.
yet still completely hot...has he had his teeth done? they seem straighter?
i think we'd all have our teeth done.
i'd probably get laser eye surgery as well.
imagine. Lasers for Eyes. It'd be great. (soft wipe to shot of man with lasers coming out of his eyes, burning crows out of the air)
Boosh is great though.
to the end of 1999.
His material hasn't really moved on, but he seems to have ditched the material about Roy the Starfish.
