When we did the Royal Tournament at EC we were not allowed to drink within three tube stops of Earls Courtpar avion said:
I don't think he needed to go as far as Soho. There were plenty of funny boys in Earls Court.
Living in Earls court Sq for 4 years on my return from Africa & getting a trainee managers job in London I can say with certainty, Rarely Aussies! There were certain pubs that were gay hangouts, IIRC the The Coleherne Arms public house was a gay pub in west London. Located at 261 Old Brompton Road, Earls Court, it was a popular landmark leather bar during the 1960's, 1970s and 1980s. & the Bolton pub. There was another one but I've forgotten it. Needless to say I avoided them all after the first v. brief visit checking the local hostelries out!.
The thing that made it great for me in the "Swinging Sixties" were the huge volume of birds staying at the Overseas Visitors Club, mainly antipodean, saffers, Rhodies or Canucks with the odd Septic bird, hence Kangaroo Valley.
After spending 3 years in NR where available birds were almost non existent, I was like a kid being let lose in an all you can eat sweetshop!! There was also the Zambezi club where you could often meet those who were from N & S Rhodesia, the local fuzz hung out there as well.
Being a poverty stricken trainee manager, there were quite a few very cheap cafe's like "The Stockpot" where you could get a v. cheap meal which filled you up.
People have no idea just how great it was then and think you were exaggerating it, no way, I was the only Brit in the bunch of lads I hung out with in my time there, we all had an absolute ball & enjoyed every minute!!
Russell Howard - someone should have told him that having a bone West country accent does not automatically confer comedic statusI was just looking at another thread about the supposed comedy show Taskmasters and reading peoples thoughts.
There are a lot of negative replies and this got me to thinking what programmes/comedians that are on Tele BUT are not funny at all in my eyes so i was wondering who commissions their programmes and is a lot of it who you/they know
Victoria Wood - Not funny
Miranda Hart - Not funny
Jo Brand - Not funny at all
Catherine Tate - Not funny
Ruby Wax - Not funny
Jimmy Carr - Not funny and a tax dodging smug twat
Eddie Izzard - Not funny and not sure if he is even a comedian
Michael McIntyre - Not funny
Frankie Boyle - Not funny and a twat
Jack Dee - Was funny but not now
The thing is its our TV Licence fees that are paying for these unfunny, funny fukers, maybe its just my age but comedians used to make me laugh these make me turn over or OFF
Please feel free to add or take away from the list
That last line, now that’s funny. BGT? Is that another branch of LGBTRussell Howard - someone should have told him that having a bone West country accent does not automatically confer comedic status
Jack Whitehall - not funny, unless acting like a bewildered five year old about to burst into tears is funny
David Walliams - not funny and also most likely to get a knock on the door from 'Operation Yewtree'
'Lost voice guy' from BGT - not in the slightest bit funny...Stephen Hawking with twice the drool and less than half the intelligence
Speccy kid in walking frame from BGT - not funny, not at all.
Who would you have chosen?Well there you go.
