Except it wasn't rubbish, purposefully or unpurposefully.

Actually, that is impossible. But I know what you mean.

I think the reason is that when he's on the panel shows, he's the odd one out. He's the one who brings a totally fresh and weird perspective into the conversation. But when he has a whole show to himself, there's no "normal conversation" for him to bounce off on. You know, those comedy contrasts, the dynamic of "there's nothing funny about a shocking comment if there's no one around to find it shocking" kind of thing.

Maybe that's why the stand-up sections just reminded me of a pissed up old tramp ranting in the street? Don't even start me on the 'sketches'. Garbage!

I really enjoyed this. One of very few recent shows to elicit consistent audible laughs from my mouth.

Really were you taken some sort of strong medication at the time?

Hahaha, don't know if I'd go that far. It was still better than watching nothing, or gulp, something like Glee, eh?

And one of those jokes will haunt me forever. That one about the paedophelia of married life, because of children looking like their parents. It had this eerily grain of truth effect on me. And I think it was in the first episode where he brought up jokes from his family life, from conversations with his daughter and stuff like that, sort of relaxed and down to earth stuff in between, you know.

Was it him on Mock The Week that said his daughter had told him she loved him more than sausages?
That was so cute.

The paedophilia/incest line, not so much. ;)

It was rubbish though.

I haven't heard your stand up, but I doubt it's better. Do you consider yourself rubbish?

A man whose forum name is a pun on 'wanker' using the name 'Juan' isn't in any position to pronounce on comedy, good or bad - truly. And incidentally, 'Kerr' is correctly pronounced 'car' in English, so your pun is even worse than it appears.

You've got the jump on me Marc, I haven't a clue what you mean.

I don't know where you live but you should start transcribing that pissed up tramp immediately - you might make a few bob.

That was so cute.

His daughter asked what the best thing in the world was and he said: "It's you darlin', you're the best thing in the world." She said; "For me it's sausages."

He's used it a few times, like a lot of his jokes.

No, I consider myself to have only done 9 gigs though.

I'm a rubbish standup should I bite my tongue?

It was accomplished by the numbers standup, not that diferent to any competent professional standup
