I enjoyed Peep Show. I like Robert Webb, and I think the latter has a kindness about him. I am finding David Mitchell ubiquitous. More and more I find him unattractive, sweary and laddish, and it has put me off hearing his voice. Am I alone?

He's getting a bit up himself and almost too big for his boots.

I saw him on hignfy Friday night and he was trying to be funnier than the panelists which was awkward.

He's almost become a characature of himself.

I like him a lot and enjoyed him on HIGNFY on Friday. I don't watch any of his usual panel shows so haven't seen that much of him lately

I love him. Love love love him.

love him. Love love love him.
Aye ok Victoria 😉

I don't like it when he goes all champagne socialist but apart from that he can be funny.

No you are not alone.

Peep show was funny - clearly the scripts were key! Just googled and scriptwriters also worked on Fresh Meat which I loved.

The whole of BBC comedy is just not funny to me these days. Well apart from Morecambe and Wise on Radio4extra.

He's always seemed quite cold and smug to me. But I think he and the BBC are in for the long haul so we might as well get used to him. I confess that when entertainers are around for long enough I usually end up liking them and I guess that's ll happen with him. I like miles jupp a it more.

a lot more!

He has a quick wit - always worth a watch!

I think he's brilliant. Love him.

Ooh, I think he's fab!

Laddish? I struggle to imagine anyone less laddish than David Mitchell.

He used to be funny, clever and succinct but it's like in the past year or so he has tried to peel away a layer of his intellect to appeal more to the average man. I find him wearing and over exposed now, which is a shame.

he knows he's got an irritating, whiny voice.

Adding my voice to the LOVE camp. Especially Would I Lie To You. Such a clever man.

Vango Sun 06-Nov-16 19:41:50

Like Would I Lie To You (not a big Rob Brydon fan) but MEANT The Unbelievable Truth! Much better 😁.

Sweary? Laddish? Are you sure you've got the right person?

ppeatfruit Wed 16-Nov-16 10:01:09

I'm in the LOVE LOVE LOVe camp mostly; he is great In Would I Lie to you. On R4 I reckon the script was letting him down on the Unbelievable Truth, they've reined him (or the script) in now ,, it was getting tedious .

ShowOfHands Wed 16-Nov-16 10:03:44

I adore him. He's witty, intelligent, politically aware and passionate.

ppeatfruit Wed 16-Nov-16 11:38:28

Yes Show I agree and it's nice to see a man who's a geek type not all 'gussied' up for the telly.

Can't stand him.
