I have just watched Jonathan Ross and Russell Howard did a shorthand version of the yawn rape joke. Instead of "salami counter" read "woman on bus" and then on top of that he did the "my eye isn't lazy it is always moving around" joke ad nauseum.
So is there a more repetitive comedian out there?
Edit: He has just done the "imagine being a slug that would be depressing, if you cried it would melt yor face" and the "shed for a head" joke. Lame!
Edit 2: "my mum pointing at her belly saying 'that's where the magic comes from' and noone knew who she was, she could of just been some random old lady." joke.

i agree he is repetitive. but ive seen most of his good news and im ashamed to say it still makes me laugh even though i realise he does the same thing. like mention someone in his family.
I'm the same despite this thread, I feel slightly guilty for finding it funny which makes me laugh even more
______ has a face like a ______
______ is worse than Kerry Katona/Amy Winehouse/Any politician
Scotland is cheap/fat/unhealthy/stupid/violent
I also loved Marcus Brigstocke's twitter impression of Peter Kay: "Who remembers Rola Cola? What are biscuits like? D'you remember eyes? What were they like when you were a kid? Who remembers remembering things? eh? What was that like? Remember that? You'd remember something wouldn't ya? Then say it."

First Dingledodies gig was is Sept 2008 though Let's say only 18 months.
His new material will come out after he finishes this month's 10 day tour. So next year's Mock the Week will no longer have Dingledodies material in.
Some of the jokes he uses now are still the same jokes that he used when he first started on MTW. He will probably use them during this tour as well. The dinner witch joke was on the last tour, the tour before and MTW.
Russell Howard is pretty annoying tbh. On Good News half the show must have been him impersonating sex on stage and he usually does stupid noises, fake family scenarios, childish humour/voices on his stand up shows.
Hmm, I went to the recordings of Good News and although the show is funny-ish, he was actually funniest during the bits inbetween the takes.. even that got a bit 'heard-it-all-before' after a while though. Shame. My housemates are obsessed with him though and find anything he says hilarious. =/ He is pretty annoying.
i find Russell Howard hilarious but he's definitely one of the most repetitive comedians - the yawn rape joke being particularly overused.
i went to see him a few of weeks ago and after i got back home from the show i caught the end of his good news xmas special and he used 5/10 mins of the material from the live show which i thought was a bit dodgy seeing as his tour hadn't even finished yet
