I'm going to see him at Wimbledon Theatre this Friday.
Probably the funniest living comedian.
..."Isn't he the dead one?" Turns out I was actually thinking of Bill Hicks.
I set her an entertainment budget of £40 for July so she could just squeeze this in, maybe a spritzer in the interval.
"the wife" surely
Not sure if it was about him or it just featured him (it might have been about Blackpool?). It looked quite depressing really, pissed people shouting so much stuff at him he ran out of stuff to say back to them. Crap nob gags. I am surprised he hasn't stuck his head in an oven yet.
but this is a bit weak even by your standards. Here's the deal: I once did see him. I was 19 and it was a work outing and I knew nothing about the man, so I just went along with it. Cue a night of squirming in my seat wanting to run away, and wondering what sort of people I was working with. He used the word "coon" during the show for f***'s sake. There's nothing TO intellectualise here, he's a piece of shit.
It is what it is.
Sounds like you're trying a bit hard to me.
What's the point?
the jokes about his wifes minge are hilarious
but if he went back to it he could potentially steal the crown from Chubs. Until then, the fat bastad reigns supreme.

I wondered if this was a sting operation for racists.
In terms of timing, stage presence, audience interaction, the formulation of a joke and the twisting of concepts. He's honed his act over thousands of performances and a simple shrug of his shoulders or a wink can bring about a laugh - he's that good. It's a skill he's perfected (maybe even a gift) that someone like Michael McIntyre can't even dream of achieving.
And then there is the content of the jokes. :-(
You had all the has been dinosaur comedians(Jim Davidson et al) all falling over themselves to tell us what a great comic he was & that he was the best timer of a line, blah, blah, blah.
I was a bit lost thinking - isn't he just a racist scumbag telling racsist jokes to racists?
Know your audience I guess.
