Seriously, what were they thinking letting this man onto Mock the Week? He even makes Andy Parsons look good. Is there anyone else out there who thinks his concept of 'humour' is absolutely atrocious? It seems to consist of:

-Regurgitating other people's jokes and pulling a face
-Speaking in a Bristol accent and pulling a face
-Saying something really low-brow, pulling a face and making some random arm movements
-Talking about something he read in the Daily Mail, and pulling a face
-Pulling a face

If you like him, WHY?! Nearly any other comedian is funnier, with the exception of Jim Davidson!

I like his comedy, but mainly late at night when I'm tired and don't want to have to think about any jokes being made.

I absolutely hate him! He just isn't funny, simple as that. :dontknow:

He also has a national following, which is also pretty annoying.

Because he represents the young student generation of modern society.

I've only seen the adverts of him on TV, and he comes across as incredibly unfunny and arrogant.

He's rubbish, but better than Noel Fielding, who is unbelievably bad.

Not the worst (tbh, some of the guest comedians on there are often times dire), but I'm not a huge fan.

Ah, I forgot to mention

- saying how unracist he is, and pulling a face
- Describing an improbable situation for an animal to be in("imagine if there was a hippo, wearing a cap and sunglasses, playing the didgeridoo?" ), and puilling a face

He was on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross a few weeks ago, and managed the almost impossible feat of being less funny than Wossy.

I love him! He's really funny! Russell Howard's News of the Week or whatever it's called is great! I think it's because he just looks really cute while doing all of those things. He's definitely got looks on his side, which a lot of comedians don't have. In fact, he is probably THE hottest comedian Just because you don't share the same sense of humour as him doesn't mean you have to slate him. He makes loads of people laugh and has loads of sell out gigs so stop being so horrible. He's never done anything to you, if you don't like him then don't watch him! Simple. I don't go making threads about people I don't like... It's not nice. Imagine if someone found a website saying how horrible and unfunny you were when it's your profession. I'd feel pretty rubbish and probably get pretty depressed if it was me Make a thread about something somebody cares about.

To be fair that's quite a harsh insult.

That Reginald hunter person is truly god awful. The only reason he gets on TV is because he's black*

*The truth - it hurts.

He's not funny. I give him credit for telling different jokes to everybody else but he is not funny. It's just weird and childish. The best thing he ever did was going on Mock the Week to hang out with other mediocre/below average comedians.

He's far from being the worst comedian out there; though his childish style does grate a little, from time to time.

He is oddly cute, though... :erm:

Ughh i hate it on Mock The Week, when he always says :
'I read the most AMAZING story the other week/ I saw the most AMAZING thing the other day.

So annoying.

I know what you mean, I wouldn't go as far as the Andy Parsons comment thought! He's quite annoying.
