    No! Please don't say that!!! Trust me once you get used to his stye he's genius. You should see his DVD 41st best stand-up. It's as good as Moran's DVD's Monster and Like, Totally.
    I have seen more of him.

    His style is string out a joke for as long as he physically can and repeating each line (including the punchline which, given the time he takes to get there, you've worked out already) about 10 times.

    I guess it's a form of genius that he got on TV.

    He deconstructs jokes. He explains why everything is funny. He shows how ridiculous mainstream stand up is. Is it too subtle for you? (I'm not trying to sound patronising)

    Frankie Boyle is good, but his Scotland jokes get a bit old sometimes. Billy also does some great TV shows and seems like a very nice bloke. :yes:

    Fine, it'd be cool if he did that once or twice, but not in every joke. It gets rather annoying.

    Hmm, I suppose. I do like Billy Connolly - he definitely does come across as a very nice bloke - but I couldn't abandon Frankie :p:
