Comedians that are not funny but think they are

I have read Alexei Sayle's two autobiographies, he does acknowledge how absurd the hard left was back in the Eighties. And he accepts that he is now, sort of, part of the 'Establishment' that he was so opposed to.
 
That's debatable, I have seen far better on the tonight I cooked thread. Cheeky and chirpy yes but chefs they are not.
To be fair to the Hairy Bikers, they have never claimed to be chefs, just a couple of blokes who like food.
 
Steve Womack's play on words I'd Like to kiss you fer China and others....ribs were never the same again after that...


Reminds me of the Not the Nine O'Clock News song, "Kind a Lingers". A deeply soulful song, the only time I saw my father in law laugh out loud.
(For my sins I like Mick Miller. particularly his gig at Butlins.)
 
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.

Frasier is even funnier.
 
Has anyone mentioned...ahem...Bernard Manning yet. Racist, homophobic, masogenistic and funny as fcuk?
 
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...

I’ve seen chubby a couple of times.
Pretty good, but once you’ve seen him, you’ve seen 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”.

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.

He was chased off the stage, and got a police escort out, the locals were out to string him up.

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.

Pritchard had been unwell for a while, He managed to be on location for long weekends but had to do Mexico from the UK.
He wasn't part of the France series.

Pritchard was indeed formidable himself and also enjoyed a glass or several.
