I was watching her on TV today talking about her maracattack fitness dvd. found here

Clearly she did this for a laugh (ish I am sure the money helped) but I am actually thinking that of all the dvds THIS is the one I am most likely to want to put on and join in with BECAUSE it was done as a bit of fun. AIBU to buy this dvd and lose 5stone and then be all fabulous (and probably meet Miranda who will want to be my best friend?)

I find her slightly, very slightly, more amusing than Jenny Eclair and Michael McIntyre.

That's about as kind as I can be.

yanbu i love miranda!

She is try hard but we're all in on the joke! She pokes fun at herself, she's self deprecating, it's supposed to be all self conscious and over the top, she's larger than life. NPI!

Och she's harmless and she makes my kids laugh so I like her!

I don't get Miranda as a comedian. Though I like her in Call the Midwife.

She's on the list of people I don't find funny -
Keith Lemon
Mrs Browns Boys
Alan Partridge
Bryn from Gavin and Stacey
Lee Evans
James Corden
Ricky Gervais
Rowan Atkinson
Russell Brand

That is not an exhaustive list.

Miranda's great.

But I think she might be a marmite person.

TooTabooToBOOOOO Wed 13-Nov-13 19:01:28

One of the reasons I luff her so much is the hatred other people on here have for her.

harticus Wed 13-Nov-13 19:14:15

I didn't realise she irritated people so much - I will like her even more now.

Sokmonsta Wed 13-Nov-13 19:16:41

Yanbu. She's such fun! I'm going to see her show next year grin

OrlandoWoolf Wed 13-Nov-13 19:17:34

Looking at Alisvolatpropiis I don't like most of them. Rowan Atkinson was good but I can not forgive him for Mr Bean.

But Miranda is fab. She just has something about her that's really nice and funny without taking herself too seriously.

sandfrog Wed 13-Nov-13 19:20:31

YANBU. She's very funny and I'd buy this. Looks a great antidote to the usual type of tanned-and-solemn DVDs that usually put me right off.

Don't think Kirstie's enjoying being photographed for the DVD cover though, she's barely managing a smile!

lookatmycameltoe Wed 13-Nov-13 19:24:28

She is SO unfunny. So cringeworthy. Awful. I've tried watching that show of hers because my mum reckons it's hilarious. It isn't.

Oh I'm so tall and clumsy and look like bloke but I'm soft and girly inside. Oh no I bumped my head on the door frame. Whoops. Grrrrrrrrr!

MrsDoomsPatterson Wed 13-Nov-13 19:37:23

Aww, I don't hate Miranda, I don't actually hate anyone. She's just a bit lame. Good for anyone who likes her though, we are all different.

mrsmalcolmreynolds Wed 13-Nov-13 19:38:26

tee I hope my nickname speaks for itself?

teaselweasel Wed 13-Nov-13 19:39:07

I think it helps to be 5ft 11 and built like an ox to really get Miranda. Me an my mum know exactly where she's coming from..

dementedma Wed 13-Nov-13 19:43:08

I think shes very funny

teaselweasel Wed 13-Nov-13 19:43:13

Asked mother if she'd like the new Miranda DVD for Xmas. She's v excited and can't wait to get her maracas out.

hermioneweasley Wed 13-Nov-13 19:44:01

I think she's brilliant. DW doesn't get it at all!

loveliesbleeding1 Wed 13-Nov-13 19:45:51

I do like miranda, but to be honest I watch for gary.That's what I thought everyone was doingblush

mamapants Wed 13-Nov-13 19:49:17

Am only 5ft1 and I love her too teasel
I think she's the opposite of trying too hard though, she doesn't take herself seriously and its all just a bit daft. Sometimes its too silly and misses but in general she's funny and very likeable.

mamapants Wed 13-Nov-13 19:52:12

I agree with alis list except for Bryn from Gavin and Stacey and Rowan Atkinson, who doesn't love Blackadder?!

Alisvolatpropiis Wed 13-Nov-13 22:57:54

mama balls! I do like Blackadder. However it was all Mr Bean when I was a kid, hated it. It's always my first point of reference with Rowan Atkinson.

Heartbrokenmum73 Wed 13-Nov-13 23:03:57

Oh I'm so tall and clumsy and look like bloke

That's just spiteful.

I like her a lot, my kids like her, and I know lots of other people (yes, in real life) who like her too.

Sue me <shrugs>

I think Miranda is brilliant.
I so want to dress up as Wheres Wally? and hide in a shopping complex! grin

BringMeTea Wed 13-Nov-13 23:31:10

Nope. Don't get it. And the book. My God. I did finish it. I kept waiting for it to become serious or sincere or sensible. It is a very odd mishmash of autobiography and Jackie meets Mallory Towers. I cannot fathom what the publishers were aiming for. My DP's 11 year old niece 'read' it. Clearly not aimed at her yet written in a child like style. Weird. And not in a good way.
