but I always thought Stanhope fell a bit flat on Screenwipe. Shame, because his standup is great.
my brother -in-law and mate went out drinking with him after he played in Manchester last. I was busy. Gutted as he is one of the ones you'd "want to have a drink with"
brilliant throw away one liner.
but this was masterful.
would be pretty funny if he wasn't American.
which is probably wrong given the circumstances but, you know, sometimes you've got to not be a hypocrite and admit that you found something funny whether you want to or not...
Weekly Wipe returns in a few days, so hopefully he'll have a regular slot on that too.
still, good on the lady I suppose.
Is now the time I can do my rant against religion?
if it has, say, one point that hasn't been made 1 billion times plus on the internet already
i find his little snippets on brooker's shows way more digestible and amusing than his standup which is utterly intolerable. he just fucking bitches and whines about everything and everybody and there's rarely actually a punchline at the end of it. it's not even that i disagree with him, but he's exhausting and not even that funny.
anyway, this 2013 wipe was massively funny overall and the best one he's done.
