    nay. seconded.
    (that is I don't find him amusing in the slightest)

    I hate him! He is terribly annoying, completely unfunny. And yet everyone loves him. Like Ricky Gervais

    I like the stuff he's written better than his performances. BUt he's one of those people who'll always play himself when acting.

    Although, I actually loved the new St Trinians film that he was in and felt it really captured the nihilistic and sadistic tone of the original Searle cartoons.

    Not a huge fan of his, he has his moments.

    In the St Trinians film I thought it was Russell Brand being Ricky Gervais even down to the accent. weird. He was not as good as George Cole in the original films.

    Performance wise was much more amusing when on smack on MTV talking to equally off their face clubbers.
    Some of his written stuff has given me a chortle though.
  1.  (1947.7)
    He's in the same category in my mind as Catherine Tate. I just don't find him funny.

  2.  (1947.8)
    I think he was funny when Rod Stewart threatened to twat him, but guess that's laughing at, not with him.

    Like all other comedians not all his material is good. His stand-up is a mixed bag and his portrayal, both of himself and by others, is at times v. annoying; he's passed being a parody of himself. On the other hand his BBC Radio show is hilarious.

    I used to hate his stuff, but a summer of Big Brother's Big Mouth turned it for me.
    Craig's right though, he is patchy in stand-up, and I totally see how he could annoy. But then, I find Harry Hill mostly annoying, although TVBurp's funny in places.
