mark lamarr's funny as fuck.
these days are atrocious though. Members of Phixx would turn it down.
it's more about lamarr and bill bailey mucking about really, is it not?
it does disappoint me when they suck up to crap guests (myleene class a coupla weeks ago) rather than taking the piss...
I'm judging it on about 3 years ago, which was the last time I saw it. I'm surprised it's still on, actually. In my head, I'm lumping it in with They Think It's All Over for shows which outstayed their welcome. Might try watching one again sometime, I did used to enjoy it way back in the day. Msking Gail Porter cry was funny. Though it seems to have had a pretty bad long-term effect on her...
is actually quite good now since nick hancock left/was sacked/disappeared.
was when I saw Nick Hancock described as 'Half man, half autocue'. He was a bit annoying.
who seems to be doing really well lately. he's like half hancock/half funny.
I thought it was some guy who was just really like Mark Lamarr. He was with some blonde girl who seemed nice enough. Turns out she was Jo Guest or sommat.
True story. Life is only that boring for me.
tony blackburn's the best they could muster tonight. look at his creepy squashed face!
Is an absolute cunt
Bill Bailey is a genius though
he's well funny
smarmy little unfunny sleazy shitebag.
On the radio he's alright, mind.
You know he doesn't mean it really cos he breaks into that cheeky four year old type smile.
Bill Bailey live is fantastic, his emo song is funnier than Bobby Grindrod.
And I don't say that lightly...
Is him thinking "I just got away with the same shite joke again!"
he loves the broken family band.
therefore he's ok by me.
Lamarr is as funny as Hiroshima.
The hairy guy just isn't funny either, same goes for the walrus.
Isn't it annoying how fat 'celebs' or comedians (like Moyles) always love to mention their shit weight?
"And you're like... 'Oy! Fat bastard! Fuck off!'. And I'm like... 'yeah'."
That kind of thing. I HATE them.
I HATE THEM.
A fat face, and never winks from behind the act.
He also likes The Pussycat Dolls.
because hes a cunt, mark lamarr is a bit of a cunt yet hes still funny at least some of the time
is okay on the show he does on XFM. Doesn't seem much like Mark Lamarr to me but I've never actually seen him.
is quite funny but buzzcocks used to be funnier, its still watchable though, but late night hollyoaks is clearly the king of trash tv though
is actually a well underrated stand up comic. live in bracknell is awesome.
bill bailey is brilliant. at everything. music, stand up, sitcom - well black books - he doesnt even need to do jokes as such. Look at him! its like a shower curtain slipping of an egg, or a klingon gandalf.....saw him at brighton comedy fest last year. i laughed so much my face hurt.
has turned ...Buzzcocks from a good show into a shit one. I love Bill Bailey, and I like the show in general, but recently it's become half an hour of Mark Lamarr going on about how much he hates Geri Halliwell. Yeah? Well I hate you, you fuckingsmugtwat.
I personally don't think half an hour is long enough for slagging off the halliwell.
but still, I don't need to tune into BBC2 to watch it. I could go down the pub with Mel B.
Are you all high?
Mark Lamaar funny? Nonsense. You see the cringeworthy punchlines to his jokes coming about a month off. He, like Carr, has some misguided notion of superiority over everyone else meaining that his pss jokes are just him trying to make some z lister feel small. He is not quick witted or intelligent with his comedy. In his defence he does seem to know what he is talking about when he gets serious about music.
In summary a greasy pompous cunt.
Someone also mentioned They Think It's All Over is now funny. Curiously this wasn't followed by a punchline. Watching Ian Wright on TV is something like chewing tinfoil.
he's that good on buzzcocks, but his stand up stuff in the early 90s was legendary. It's all a matter of (dis)taste I guess.
I feel so ashamed, but I had a right crush on mel b in the wannabe days.....
Mark Lamarr - alright
Bill Bailey - amazing
Phil Jupitus - has a loud annoying HAHHH! HAHHH! laugh that you always hear in a pub and you think to yourself: 'cunt'.
Jimmy Carr - the hitler of comedy
cos he is so knowledgeable about music. It's clearly a genuine passion too, as he has been seen at lots of 60s RnB/Jazz/Ska nights around London. His radio show is great.
He was best in the 90s on Shooting Stars - those mohair suits and croc winkle-pickers and that quiff! He was so cool! Now he's not cool. But quite funny at times.
Mark Lammar - The Marmite of Comedy?
The good news!
............asking what I'm laughing about. But I'll not(tella)......
your bouillon about.
this pickle that everyone seems to have gotten into.
Lamarr has good taste in music and is probably one of the most knowledgable DJ's around, but he is just a wanker on that program. To the extent it's actually unwatchable. And in real life as well.
Anyone who has as kneejerk a reaction against Radiohead on every level as he does can fuck off.
I seem to remember he likes some shit bands too from a sort of 'lads on lager, any crap like Jet's alright' sort of way.
