The problem with that is that every time I've heard Edmondson talk about comedy and his career in the last decade or so he's com across as a complete tosser, rubbishing his legacy while gearing up for some shameful Celeb TV Show – whereas Rik's interviews of recent years have remained a joy. Packed with the same old ego jokes of course, but he comes across well in my opinion. If anything, it feels like Rik has tried to remain true to his comedy, whereas Ade's had that pink light that Alexei Sayle talked about emerge from his ear, and lost it.

Of the stuff I've seen Ade interviewed on, he sounds a little grumpy about the new folk, but only in that "been there, done that - It was different in my day" way.
He was on Chain Reaction recently and rather positive about his time in comedy. He bemoaned the business side of the current comedy folk but still in an affable way.
But he freely admits that the 'raw and hungry' years are behind him and now he's happy just doing his music thing.

Nice interview if you can catch it

That's nonsense though, he's done Hell's Kitchen and that's it surely?

He also did Fame Academy, albeit for Comic Relief.
