i appreciate he's a pretty objectionable character but this is pretty funny
but he always comes across as really likeable and i think he is genuinely funny
but he always comes across as a likeable, intelligent and eloquoent guy.
P.S. I agree completely.
he's quite obviously a highly astute chap who's been dealing (very openly) with lifelong insecurity by getting fucking famous and scoring a lot of chicks (a privilege he acknowledges and an opportunity nobody in his state of mind would have spurned), all while aware of his own self-destructive behaviour, and aware of his duty to entertain - he wears the burden of expectation very classily, considering
I think he just wants to be liked, and I think he deserves it now, most of all because he recognises the mistreatment he's handed out to others in the past
I also think he could become a genuinely good writer if he took himself more seriously
but I'm not going to watch it, on the basis that I'm the only one who's going to be losing out as a result of watching it.
but as a person he's incredibly tedious and massively tedious
reminds me of johnny depp in pirates of the carribean
you heard me
They're probably the equivalent of Richard and Judy. If they had someone like The Rock he could do the same to them I'm sure. Also, calling the female anchor 'love' whilst complaining about her being rude?
The guy who usually presents it with the blonde one is an ex-congressman - it's a political show
which probably excuses him further.
Although he is improving with age, I'll grant him that. He might yet carve out a decent niche for himself as an eloquent writer on certain topics which currently lack mass-cultural compassion, but he's still too much of a style-over-substance tit for it to work. He seems to be growing out of it though, slowly...
Taking the piss out of some American newsreaders with some characteristically flouncy words isn't THAT funny is it?
but pretty funny aye
the US reader's can't see that using "he" and "him" as he is sat is very rude.
something of a modern hero. a great writer, great comedian, king of basic common sense and basic humanitarian behaviour. love him. mind you i liked his 'arthur' remake so perhaps i'm not best qualified to comment.
Never understood why people hated it so much.
but one of those presenters is English.
This is still very amusing. He runs rings around all of them.
She was desperately trying to make it look like she was still in control, but she had that 'wtf' look in her eyes. Like a rabbit in headlights
I personally thought everyone came out of this looking like bellends
They all looked incompetent.
But given that he went on there to plug his new show, I'd be fucked if I knew what the point of it was [despite / because of] him using lots of long words or why that'd be a good idea
That was the memo.
But I still don't know
