Who's Jack Whitelaw? Is he funnier than Bill Hicks or Stewart Lee?

Totally agree. Some people rave about him, but I've never got it.

Comedy taste is pretty subjective, isn't it? I know people who think Michael McIntyre is the funniest human on the planet, yet I can sit through one of his shows and not manage even a single half-smile.

Agree and I would like to be to be able to con the public and make millions, I just don't know how they do it.

Then Tarbuck took up the mantle.

As for comedy being subjective I don't get American sitcoms. My wife has every friends episode. I sat through most episodes with her and thought that it was a drama. The canned laughter is usually brought about by Matt Perry making some facial expression or by manipulating inntonations in his voice in a stupid manner to manufacture a pseudo punchline.

I get embarrassed about some of the comedy I like as a kid. I was 15 when 'The Young Ones' came out. I remember being in paroxysms of laughter. I've watched it back when I was in my 40s and thought WTF.

I find the Young Ones still witty and original.

I agree that the Young Ones has dated a little but there are still some really funny bits in it. The spoof 'yoof TV' show Nosin' Around was spot on.

It is the only TV comedy that Nine Below Zero played on - therefore it is beyond reproach.

Jack Whitehall on the other hand is about a funny as herpes!

Don't be having a go at big hearted Arthur. It's possibly a time thing, if you listen to some of the old shows on 4Extra like 'Take it From Here' most of the jokes are not funny to modern ears but were clearly hilarious to the listening crowds. And the 'wireless' did get some huge audiences back then.

Jack Whitelaw

Bill Hicks

Stewart Lee

Michael McIntyre

 

 

I do try and keep up with what's happening at home, but there's four names I've never even heard of.

 

I thought the Young Ones was ace, but Im not sure there'd be any point going back there and watching it again.

 

Friends, awful, just awful.

Was going to ask the same - if it's Jack Whitehall he is absolute dog dirt in my opinion
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.
