Maybe he is comedian that appeals mainly to males.
I have seen him live and some of his material was very very crude and in bad taste. It made everyone cringe and if I'm honest I didn't like that part. His delivery is sometimes like he is reading it from a 'set in stone' script but it is usually good material.
However, I do think he is an excellent panel host. And he is quick witted and not too bothered about being the brunt.
I am a fan!
Agreed... his stand up that I've seen was just over the top crude stuff, trying too hard to be as wildly offensive as possible, like Frankie Boyle. Jimmy is best when he is interacting with others. I find him great as host of 8 Out Of 10 Cats and The Big Fat Quiz Of The Year, and very good as a panelist as well. His stand up style of "set in stone" script as you put it, yet he does have a very quick wit.
