Steve Womack's play on words I'd Like to kiss you fer China and others....ribs were never the same again after that...
The problem is that the script-writing teams are massive. Everyone is chasing the laughs.
Over lockdown we’ve been watching box sets of Frazier and Cheers. Both are delights but definitely of a different age. Cheers is gentler but very good. I really like Frazier but it’s closer to what we have now. Superb, mind. Some of the lines are just so sharp.
And this guy tops my list of the most unfunny comedians currently taking money under false pretences.

I hate him so much I can't be arsed looking up his name...
Or what about Chubby Brown?
Saw him live in Chatham. Place was full of WRAC and other Wimmin. He was one smooth talking b@#$%rd a real fanny magnet...
Iirc, he did a gig in Middlesbrough shortly after the late 80s Cleveland child abuse scandal, and his opening line ws "surprised at the turnout tonight, I thought you'd all be at home shagging your children".I’ve seen chubby a couple of times.
Pretty good, but one way you’ve seen him, youseen him. If you know what I mean.
The thing that made me laugh at the time was him coming out onto the stage at the start & saying “My wife’s got 2 cnuts and I’m one of them”.
He was chased off the stage, and got a police escort out, the locals were out to string him up.Iirc, he did a gig in Middlesbrough shortly after the late 80s Cleveland child abuse scandal, and his opening line ws "surprised at the turnout tonight, I thought you'd all be at home shagging your children".
Must have been an interesting audience reaction that night.
Didn't he die half way through the making of Stein's French jaunt?
I expect that he would have had to have been a pretty formidable character in his own right as Floyd was a drunk who was quite happy to bully underlings and I suspect that Stein (in spite of his post-edit jolly persona) is a moody type with an ego and temper to match.
