I don't find him amusing in the slightest. I cannot stomache the sight of him. He gets paid lots of money for being a complete moron.

Oh, I loved Bo Selecta! Can't stand Keith Lemmon though. Surely it's an age thing?

Please don't forget it is only an act I know for a fact that Leigh is a caring, charming family man.

I get that it's an act - obviously. I just don't get what's funny about it. And I can see that I may be missing out on something as he's obviously very popular but I just don't think he's that funny.

What caring, charming, family man needs to stoop so low? I think we have all established it is only an act The point is Leigh Francis aka Keith Lemon's vulgarity is completely unnecessary. He is not funny.

I don't get him either. I don't find him remotely funny.

Doinmummy Sun 02-Dec-12 21:25:45

I can't stand him either. Why does he always have a bandage on his hand?

Well of course they're all in on it. You do realise that Holly W's husband is the producer of the show?

I love and cringe at Sacha Baron Cohen characters and the inbetweeners but I loathe Keith lemon. I enjoyed a percentage of Bo selecta but I was horrified when I saw Keith lemon on This Morning and he kept banging on about chocolate starfish. I thought they'd never have him back after that performance but he's been on loads of times since.
I'm broadminded and have a filthy and at times sick sense of humour, I grew up reading Viz mag.
A lot of his appeal must be for teenagers and the stupid because he just comes across as desperate.

You are SO far from being alone, OP.

I will never understand his appeal.

Do you think our parents thought that when we were into the Young Ones?

AnyFuckerForAMincePie Sun 02-Dec-12 23:31:53

my parents used to laugh their heads off at The Young Ones

another example of comedy taking the piss out of themselves ...and not directing it in a snide and nasty way to others

Devora Sun 02-Dec-12 23:32:40

I didn't like The Young Ones either smile

I love Young Ones, Not the 9 o'clock News, Red Dwarf and Billy Connolly. My dad used to hire the videos for us both to watch.

I don't like when they get all twattish to the audience though. Silly harmless and self depreciating comedy is my preferred option.

ITV2 has been advertising tonight is all Keith Lemon...dear meangry

No you are certainly not alone, he is just vile and not remotely funny. As others have said, I simply cannot believe how Fearne and Holly just giggle along with it, I have zero respect for them as well.

Longdistance Wed 05-Dec-12 00:35:51

He's just bloody awful, awful, awful!

judefawley Wed 05-Dec-12 00:41:56

I can't STAND him.

He is not funny.

Monty27 Wed 05-Dec-12 01:03:47

He makes my skin crawl envy <<<< sick emoticon

I hate the fucker. He is a total prick and waste of space.

defineme Sat 08-Dec-12 00:34:35

The only thing I've complained to offcom about -fucking hate the character.
I complained that Keith and the women on his show had a back to school special complete with uniforms,when he told them they looked like a special school and they all obligingly gurned in impressions of kids with special needs and continued to bang on about looking 'special' I thought a complaint was warranted.
Their response was that there was a lot worse that had been edited out before it aired!
Pick on me, pick on my sex:we can talk back. Pick on my ds and he has no way of responding to vile stuff like this.

StopPickingYourNose Sat 08-Dec-12 00:50:36

That is disgusting defineme. Damn right a complaint was warranted. Can't believe offcom response! It just shouldn't be allowed and it shouldn't be put on telly. Makes my blood boil. I deteste Keith Lemon character and his stupid show. I don't know what channel it's on but is it the same channel that supports Children In Need? How can they see the suffering of the children and then ridicule like this? Appalling!

You are not alone, OP. He is an appalling little man, and I could find more (& less offensive) humour in the gutter.
Worrying, I find it increasingly difficult to find newer comedians who aren't hitching themselves to the bandwagon of this style.
