Comedians that are not funny but think they are

Very true, but the real chefs do far more than prep.
Its all about making an entertaining half an hour of telly.
Not cookery.
Or its geared towards capturing a great cover shot for their latest book.
Most poeple do not understand the extent of subterfuge that goes on.
most episodes of countdown can take more than half a day.
And don't get me started on that Bradley creature.
He is so trying to get his sons foot in the door, and i fear he has already succeded.
Every episode of their roadtrip programme has his son showing off his mediocre musical talent.
I feel embarrassed for the whole production, on the very rare times i have watched it..
But, Hey money is money.

Floyd and then Stein were both products of the same producer/director, David Pritchard.

Saw Stein on one of those Saturday morning type cook shows, without his usual crew he was next to useless.

BBC Bristol.
It was not a very convivial lunch when the head's stooge showed up to approve / keep an eye on the shoot. He sent a woman executive, but it was very clear that they had just pulled the plug on his tv carreer, And he should flog as many books as he could as quickly as possible.
Because he would not be making any more TV shows.

He was very entertaining to work with though and a nice bloke, I got the feeling that because he had been raking in the millions he thought that the BEEB had no right to pull the plug.

Just to add, I think he was right.
This was before the likes of progrrames like Top Gear became popular, and he was probably the biggest cash cow for the BBC.
That Clarkson bloke and his team were pulling in about fifty million for the BEEB and after a very hard days filming they were offered a cheese sandwich.
Can you imagine Tom Cruise or Jack nicholson getting that treatment?
I would have chinned the c*nt as well.

What annoyed me was that this unfunny cnut was allowed to keep his job as deputy leader of our country; embarrassing himself in front of the world, whereas the legend that is Clarkson got the hoof for doing the same in private.

There were interesting splits in the profits.
Floyd and Stein's TV shows belong to the production company (and still earn them money from royalties as the various repeats are continually shown on various channels)

The books however are BBC books and the profits are theirs.
