    I always turn off as soon as the mystery guest part starts. Plus most of his jokes are just toilet humour which annoys me.

    most comedy shows are and yet most of them are far better than his. you cant use that as an excuse for a really poor script and terrible format

    The footage he uses is normally funny, but he just isn't, unless you like clowns, then you'll probably like him jumping around doing 'impressions' of people.

    I loved that. I couldn't help but laugh at Russell going "I think you've just given that football an orgasm!" I love this show, and I honestly don't know why.

    By the way OP, try and put a little effort into threads. Pictures, clips, information and stuff.

    He's okay on mock the week but I just don't find this show funny. The clips he shows would be funny without him commenting on them.

    I went to see him in Newcastle.

    He was funny there, but he recycled some of his jokes on subsequent Mock the Week episodes.

    Russell Howard isn't particularly funny, on occasion he manages to come up with a good joke, but on average his comedy is stale and appeals to the lowest common denominator.

    This thread is now about Doug Stanhope.

    Yeah, he has some idea of what he is going to say. But the recording was actually 2 hours long, for a 30 minute programme. He kept just wanting to talk to people in the audience and tell stories. In the end the producers told him to do something they could actually air. Very funny.

    I agree, every time he tries to make a 'joke' I want to grab his head and bang it repeatedly against a wall till he learns he is not funny...

    I only watch it for the clips he gets off the internet, which most of us have seen.
