Before I begin. I searched for a duplicate thread and found no matches.
We all like a good laugh, but sometimes those employed to tickle the funny bone end up doing just the opposite.
Which comedians do you love to hate and why?
Mine is a long list, so I'll a few of pick my 'favourites'
Peter Kay. He has done some good stuff during his early career, but his act has never changed. After all these years he's still doling out the same 'garlic bread' routine. Even his new BBC show is made up of repeats! Get some new material Peter!
Off shoots of the Peter Kay theme = Paddy McGuinness, who told him he was funny? Dave Spikey, an embarrassment to himself and his audience.
Ben Elton - motormouthed gobshite. Thankfully not seen on TV anymore. Did well writing Blackadder, but his stand up?!
Most of those who appear on 'Mock The Week'.
Jimmy Carr. Born In Spain, Jimmy changed his name from Juan when he arrived in the UK. Though in my mind he is and always will be a Juan Carr. As funny as a gunshot wound, whose laugh alone makes me want to punch him in the face.
Another Carr - Alan Carr.
John Bishop. Painfully unfunny. Talks like he is coughing up phlegm.
Julian Clary - need I explain?
Paul O'Grady ( So bad he makes Jimmy Carr appear funny).
Eddie Izzard (So bad he makes Paul O'Grady appear funny)
I've saved the 'best' until last................
Michael Mcintyre. Brings shame upon the title 'Comedian'.
