Nah. He never had 'fame' to start with. Although I did record a few of his shows and watch them back. They really helped me through a patch in my life when I had ran out of Nightol.
I have heard from other people that he's a cock, actually. He seems to think he's a celebrity just because he thought of meeting people with the same name as him. As if nobody else had ever thought of that before. He's not a real comedian.
For instance, I'm a Geordie but I'm trying to find a place in Durham because the trains suck.
I live about 3 miles from Durham anyways, so I'm here literally all the time. I've been using the uni library most days for the last few weeks simply because it has faster internet than I've got at home!
