PROPER LADS, PROPER HAIRCUTS, PROPER HARD-NOSED BRITISH JOURNALISM.
Wait till the bit with the car door...
can't believe he got away with it for 13 years
maybe worse than that phone tapping shizzle. maybe
still funny seeing a tabloid bully getting some of his own treatment
but i'd certainly get over news of him meeting his grizzly end very quickly.
It was an unannounced set on a midweek bill of amateurs (apparently for a show he was filming following his attempts to try and make it as a stand-up) so it was a surprise to see him up on stage.
He was about as terrible as you would imagine (sample joke: 'what does Barack Obama call his BlackBerry?' A: 'A berry of colour!' Cue audible booing) and eventually got to the point where he was rifling through a sheet of notes while muttering to himself like Gil from the Simpsons desperately trying to find something that would make people laugh, which ultimately led to him being jeered off the stage. The MC then came on and mercilessly ripped the piss out of him and his terrible comedy before introducing the next act.
Was quite a cathartic experience all told.
Like a lairy Paxman.
