    Mostly the same but he's worth watching because he has moments of absolute genius.

    saw him live once as an up-and-coming comedian and that moment of genius must have occurred before or after the gig, or else i blinked at an inconvenient moment.

    According to his entry on wiki, he sweats so much on stage that he frequently has to throw his suits away as the dry cleaners won't clean them!

    Hadn't seen that clip before, so I found it funny! :tongue:
    I agree that he does have (far too few) moments of genius, as demonstated in the sketch where he took the night train to Scotland, but really, apart from that, he doesn't do much for me.
    Eddie Izzard, on the other hand . . . !

    Mildly amusing clip, but otherwise he really isn't funny. A poor mans Norman Wisdom.

    I hear what you're saying about a poor man's Norman Wisdom, but really, not everone can be original.

    There are some fiendishly wonderful performers from all genres who, knowingly or not, mimic others before them who have been hugely successful. I mean come on, seriously, are you telling me that Justin Timberlake with his almost perfect take on Michael Jackson is bad???? His lovingly crafted/copied 'woo hoo' and grabbing of crotch etc.???


    Oh yeah, I see the argument now....


    I'll get my coat.

    If he replaced every **** in his show with something slightly funny he'd make a massive improvement.
