    RCB does a sorta "you did/I didn't" routine with himself in a lot of his routines. I suspect that's the comparison. Haven't seen the latest SLCV show so I'm not really sure about the context.

    Not bad again, but not quite hitting his stride for me. He usually has something quite profound to say amongst the gags, but it's not really coming through so strongly yet.

    Just watched the latest episode. The opening line had me laughing:

    "Like all reasonable people, I hate Muslim's, apart from the ones I've met, who seem fine"

    I found myself laughing at the bits I suspect he put in for the Mock the Week crowd. Fudge cake abortion clinic :D

    I'm going off him, don't like the way he rips into other comedians for cheap laughs.

    I think he has good reason to rip into Lee Mack and Frankie Boyle. Michael McIntyre and James Cordon? It serves the purpose of his on stage persona being elitist, I wouldn't imagine he actually thinks those things. Or does he.

    I like that his head doesn't wobble constantly anymore like it always did on Fist of Fun

    Last half of that last episode was a bit of a strain.

    I thought that episode was good.

    The 'this bit of the audience got it' schtick gets a bit old.

    Just watched the Patriotism episode :D. Thought it was hilarious and very well done. Best one so far this series.

    Didn't like last week's ep as much, and although this week's ep started strong, and despite having to Google who the fuck Rod Liddle was (recognised him at the first pic), the final stretch just outstayed it's welcome.

    The punchline just didn't warrant the build up. :) Far more interesting when it went off track with the smashed glass......

    Fuck that poppadom shtick was surely the dying gasp of a played out load of old shite.

    /Laboriously mimes activity until everyone is laughing nervously.

    I was with the guy looking at his watch who was presumably doing so because shouting "get on with it, you twat" isn't de rigueur at BBC tapings.

    Rest of it was funny, mind.

    I quite liked the punchline, but not being there, the previous stuff about rod liddle's vegetable attire and not being surrounded by cackling audience members meant the last 20 minutes fell a little flat for me. I still have to give it credit for being original, but yeah it was the weakest episode for a while for me personally.
  • Deleted user 1 April 2016 22:19:42
    I saw the Rod Liddle bit last year on his tour and even with being surrounded by cackling audiences it crossed that thin line for me and it didn't work

    I only knew who one the people he mentioned was, I had to make my one mental images. I saw people in states of distress without comfort, or food on their clothing. So I thought sod them.

    I remember seeing Lee and Herring at Sheffield University back in the 90s.

    After the gig Stuart Lee was on his own, nursing a single pint, for over an hour.

    He was sat at one of those tables for one, one of those wobbly glass-topped tables with the tiny metal base and a top not much bigger than a dinner plate.

    Pofaced grump-artist was wielding a face so bastard grumpy not one pissed up student came and sat with him.

    He' s legitimately grumpy.

    He is also friends with Alan Moore. It isn't relevant, but turns to camera.

    After the mis-firings of the past two, that's as good a final show as it could be, chuckle worthy.

    But it definitely isn't that.

    I found the poppadum funny then boring then absurd and funny.

    Just caught upon my Stuart Lee, presume that's the end of the current run. It was a strong finish with the childhood urine incident but the rod liddle poppadom part was skirting on the edge of entertainment.

    Investing 30 min in front of the television is one thing I'm not sure I would go to a live gig for that kind of payoff.

    Saw him a few years ago. Three hours. Excruciating and loads started leaving - I did stay till the end. He has his moments and when they happen it is brilliant. Definitely one for Youtube though.

    The Childhood episode was great. Bit hit and miss this season overall.

    I went to see his warm-up for this series. It is strange in that large amounts of funny material from the live show didn't seem to make it into the TV run while the more arty and challenging material did.

    Also, all his gigs I have ever been to have a very odd atmosphere, they are at times very funny but there is a confrontational atmosphere at all times, I think he tries his best to replicate that for telly but it doesn't always work.

    One has to respect that he has been recommissioned more than once for material that is in stark contrast to Live at the Apollo or some panel show guff.

    I've learned to go to one of the bumblefuck towns to see his tour. Way more interesting than watching him in London or Brighton

    I saw him in what I assume is a bumblefuck town last year, and he was excellent.
