I don't know if this has made it into DiS circles, but Vine celebrity Dapper Laughs has recently booked a UK stand-up tour at fairly large venues. All of them sold out impossibly quickly.
It's caused a bit of a stir on the comedy circuit. Aside from all the stuff about him shooting up the ladder ludicrously quickly (he's actually just completely bypassed it and gone straight to the top), most people are upset about how comprehensively awful his material is to women and minorities.
This morning the following blog appeared on my Facebook timeline.
It's another comedian, and friend of Daniel O'Reilly (Dapper Laughs) who claims it's all a character act and it's no different from any other ironic character act.
What do people think? Is it a fair comment that it's just a character act and it's no more offensive than Sacha Baron Cohen, or is it different because with him the joke was always in the reactions as much as the broad stereotypes and awful things his characters said.
Also, why is it so popular? I find it fascinating. It's like there was a huge gap in the comedy scene for 'Lad' comedy and he's kind of stumbled into it and is now absolutely huge.
