Jo Brand

#1
I've just been watching Jo Brand on QI and aside from finding her totally unfunny which has been the case ever since her rib tickling routine,

"I'm fat because I eat lots of cakes"

plus

"Cakes love me because I'm fat"

But my main query is why, after NINETEEN YEARS is it still the only point of reference for rich alternative comedans Thatcher?

At the time of this post Mrs J is over 49 and should know better.

Mrs Chef has just looked over my shoulder and noticed I'm ranting. :oops:

Have to agree. Dull as whatever, one of those comedians who think that saying a lot of swear/sex words is an excuse for actually rattling of a joke is what it is all about. Guaranteed to make me hit the off button when I see her mug on the box.

Yep. She is really dregging the lowest of the low in an attempt to get a laught, embarrassing. After 30 odd ( very odd) years in the Army I've heard some ripe humour but she seems to have lost the plot completely. Watched about 3 minutes of her last TV routine and turned off. Not funny.

As for being "offended" by Thatchers "golly" comment well, hello Pot, this is Kettle, over.

Must admit, the News Quiz on R4 now just appears to be a collection of old Trots (Jeremy Hardy? Has he ever been funny? And Sandi Toksvig laughing sychophantically all over it? Arse!) slagging off Thatcher and anyone else right of Lenin at any given opportunity.

Rapidly turning into Must Not Listen radio I fear!

For someone who gets all upset when she hears the word 'golliwog', she's not very reticent about taking the pish out of people with no hands.

"Dear BBC, as a disabled black lesbian with only one hand, and a productive member of the one-handed community, I was outraged to hear, on QI last night..."

Without going off too thread much,how the fcuk can she get upset about Carol Thatcher using the word golliwog, when she is under investigation herself for a BNP joke(that wasn't even funny)

Cant stand the b1tch myself, she's never been funny and is a waste of the TV licence. She's a bawhair off Jane Goody on my Xmas card list.

It's funny that no one has mentioned she is a fat, ugly, unfunny cnut.

And I would need a bottle of 18 year old malt and another bottle of Viagra to even attempt to bone Toksvig.

I've seen him with worse after only half a bottle!

Mind you, to be fair, he does still have his moments. It's just that they are getting rarer and rarer.

You've got to, er, hand it to her; her unfunny joke about mutilated Saudi shop lifters and the whole routine about Thatcher buggering Britain, put the gollywog and Clarkson rows into proper perspective.

You can make 'jokes' on the Beeb about disability, anal sex, the elderly wetting themselves and a good few other things besides, as long as you belong to the 'Pantheon of the Right On', approved of by young, lefty BBC producers.

Hey, the gags don't even have to be funny, if the right programme makers give them the nod during production.

The producers will have had to fill in a Compliance Form for the programme. In the section about 'portrayals of disability / strong sexual references, etc' they will have had to mention jokes about hands cut off, buggery and ball-gags but will, I expect, have added 'but don't worry, it's only Jo and Steven, ha, ha!'.


I'm a huge fan of QI, but the timing of last night's no-doubt pre-recorded programme was unfortunate.

I'm not whinging and I don't read the Daily Mail unless forced to. You can make comedy out of virtually everything. I just wish that comedians were given a level playing field, regardless of their politics.

If they're funny, anything goes. If they're not, then they should be disembowelled.

The BBC is turning Brand - who was never funny - into a 'cherished comedy auntie' simply because of her political background.

They've done the same to Alan Bennett, a four-eyed, northern idiot who can make jokes about doylies, crumbs in his matress or tramps living in his garden simply because he fits the stereotype officially approved of at Broadcasting Central.

Rant over. Out.

I wouldn't - it might improve her looks. As for the 'golliwog' business, there was nothing new in Brand's synthetic outrage, but what really depressed me was the involvement of Adrian Chiles, who'd struck me till now as a fairly sensible sort. But no: he was "appalled and embarrassed" at hearing the word, and couldn't wait to run and tell somebody. What a limp-wristed throbber! I'll still watch MOTD2, but under duress while this clown's fronting it.
