not great is he? i had never seen him befroe and tbh was expecting alot better. he doesn't put much thought into them does he?

ChickensHaveNoMercyForTurkeys Tue 23-Nov-10 22:45:01

Nah. I always liked him on 'Mock The Week' because he was slightly dangerous. Let free reign he just becomes a bit of a nob.

i feel alot of his jokes over step the mark a little!!

booyhoo Tue 23-Nov-10 22:49:29

yep. they're all a bit 'easy' those jokes aren't they? it's almost as if he has just read the idiot's guide to stand up and thought he's give it a bash.

He is generally okay ont hings like Mock the Week. However, saw him life, and really was not impressed at all.

He's a nobend dp is laughing at him so he is also a nobend.

He just seems like a nasty bitter twisted lonely old sadsack.

ChickensHaveNoMercyForTurkeys Tue 23-Nov-10 22:51:43

He's just going for the 'I'm mad, me' thing, isn't he? The 'How offensive can I be while we all titter at my sheer naughtiness!' schtick. Very dull, and criminally not funny.

am boycotting him since his 'jokes' re people with downs syndrome
plus general level of misogyny

MaryMotherOfCheeses Tue 23-Nov-10 22:52:32

There was an interview with him in one of the Sundays recently. I didn't read the whole of it to be fair, but it certainly suggested he is very very shy in RL. Problematically so. Which is odd.

I still thought he was crap.

booyhoo Tue 23-Nov-10 22:53:53

yeah, I've just turned over.

booyhoo Tue 23-Nov-10 22:54:30

all his jokes just scream "cheap shot"

I went to a comedy gig in london last month and he was sitting next to me.He was in an old dirty tracksuit with a beard and huge belly!The comedian we were watching was shocking (Doug stanhope) and made frankie look quite tame.I agree though he is not funny in a long concert better in quiz shows

booyhoo Tue 23-Nov-10 22:57:54

i have to be honest. i think if i was watching him live i would have to leave.

racetobed Tue 23-Nov-10 23:05:05

utter, outrageous misogynist

Could well be a male thing - my 3 teenage boys think he's hilarious. I've watched Mock the Week when he's on it and did think he was quick and at times extremely funny. Went onto his website to find out more (fellow Scot etc)and was not impressed at all with the porn content

bakingtray Tue 23-Nov-10 23:12:28

Meaning that there was porn on it at all rather than it wasn't any good!!!!!!!

ChickensHaveNoMercyForTurkeys Tue 23-Nov-10 23:13:16

<snurk at bakingtray's porn disappointment> grin

DioneTheDiabolist Tue 23-Nov-10 23:18:20

Funny on Mock the Week. Not funny Live.
