I sometimes think Whitehouse's talent engulfs Mortimer and shows him up
I know what you mean but, in terms of comedic style, the two men are chalk and cheese and are thus not readily comparable.
I see a lot of the old "straight man and funny man" in them, with Paul as the irritable straight man and Bob as the lovable buffoon. I know Paul is a sensationally talented comedian but that's the vibe I frequently get from their interactions in this show.
Whoever cast (see what I did there?) the two of them is an excellent judge of what complements what in comedy.
And I reely mean that.
(See? I did it again).
