I fear IABU, am I?

YANBU. He may not be much to look at, but he is so funny and a great sense of humour goes a long way in my book.

He's enormously witty.

Oh thank god. He is very funny, witty, and I was already the smitten kitten after reading him, but now that he is on telly (and all sky+'d so far) he is cute and laughs at himself.
And not afraid to be ridiculously offensive/obscene when it is required. All good!

Screenwipe was loads better than his channel 4 vehicle though, as he didn't have to share the screen with panellists.

Ooh, Charlie Brooker!

Don't you think he manages to articulate what you're already thinking, only in a smart way?

Plus he's not bad looking, either.

'Don't you think he manages to articulate what you're already thinking, only in a smart way? '

And with some brilliant swearing.

<soft spot for dirty mouths>

I love him I really really do .

I had the rudest dream about him blush
I think behind all the talk about cracking one off to <insert name of derisory tv programme>, he is incisive about the media, loved Newswipe in particular.
And apparently he's really, erm, generously proportioned (according to Popbitch).

I missed screenwipe/newswipe.
Must find it somewhere to drool over

Whenever I hear him on the radio I think I'm listening to Victor Lewis-Smith (anyone else remember him?)

Can't highlight links on my itouch but there's an hilarious clip on Youtube of a Melvyn Bragg obituary - Charlie Brooker's stuff is uncannily similar IMHO.

yanbu at all, I'd totally do him. Funny men are hot, and he is really clever as well, thought Newswipe was fab, and his zombies thing was ace too.

Love him. Loads.

Victor Lewis-Smith is amazing!!!

I have had the odd sexy dream about Charlie Brooker over the years. His Screen Wipe show is brilliant!

Clever, funny, what a man.
