He did go to a school that has produced a few England internationals

eg Matt Dawson, Nick Beal, Nick Dunscombe, Tom Rees, Christian Wade.

His blackness!

Never liked him based on my limited exposure to him when he was still UK-based. He came across as arrogant, unfunny, and just not particularly talented. So I was surprised when he got the Late Late Show over here, but I do like the US version of him; on US Telly he’s likable, self-effacing, and gives his guests space and time to talk and show their talents.

His large head, and a fair bit about his persona, irritates me.

You can;t deny his success - 36 years old and has penned a sitcom, plays, films, job in the USA etc.

Hope for fat ugly people everywhere


I think he's a funny guy and must be a lot smarter than he comes across. He does accept some shit such as that Into The Woods film though.


I think he represents a problem with many of our current crop of comendians, he's a bit funny sometimes, but is mostly kinda not. Not really done anything really witty.



You've just described Russell Howard. How he's a professional comedian mystifies me.

But then I see how popular Mrs Brown's Boys is in England and it makes perfect sense.

That just satisifes our pastime of laughing at the Irish - and most people don't know about this message board.
