I'm put off those Q&A events for that very reason.

I went to an It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia quiz night in a pub a few years ago and it almost put me off the show for life. The amount of wankers shouting out catchphrases and being obnoxious,  in some kind of attempt to emulate these characters was infuriating.

Oh I can imagine. I don't actually enjoy meeting other fans of something I really like. Just cause you like the same thing doesn't mean you'll liek the person.

When Filthy Frank was still on the go I was a fan of his Youtube Channel but everyone I met in person who also liked Filthy Frank was a socially awkward memelord wanker

Actually cried with laughter watching some of the karaoke videos, especially when he worked in his nightclub face.

Anyone know what the Richard E Grant tweet yesterday afternoon was about? It said "make Kelvin a mod" then tagged Limmy. It's been deleted now after Limmy retweeted it, no mention of context on eithers profile now.

That's sparked my memory of Tim Heidecker tweeting at Limmy to "unban Kelvin" a couple of years ago:

No idea who Kelvin is or how he's leveraging these disparate celebrities to appeal to Limmy on his behalf, though.

Is this Kelvin? Retweets Limmy a fair bit.

Limmy doing Stan in his silly accent is great.

I'll dig up the links later but the renditions of Rehab and Never Going To Give You Up (where he revisits his 'nightclub face' - love him trying to hold in his laughter throughout the song) are now two of my favourite ever videos. Glorious.

That Stan video is amazing, but how does this Twitch Sings thing work? Could she hear him sing at the same time, and vice versa, or does it get combined at the end?

The karaoke videos are amazingly funny.

Here's a couple of favourites

My apartment neighbor are a 40-something couple, terrible, I've had to intervene and call the police when I've heard the man one being abusive. They have an unseen son who must be 20-ish who I often hear tunelessly singing the most mainstream, obvious songs. I would never complain about it because he has a horrible dad, and I just thought he was singing showtunes and power pop because he's gay or something. Good for him.

I've realised he's probably just been playing this.

Worth it if I get to be 20. Unless you meant the 40-something wife beater (which would also be worth it because I'd get to brutalize a wife)

I love the fact that this 44 year old man is sitting in his loft singing quietly with strangers on the Internet at 2am while his girlfriend and child sleep.

Living the dream.

Wouldn't it be chilling if Limmy snapped and killed them and then streamed for a week before anybody found out?

Likely too.

I love the karaoke videos, as they clearly don't know who he is. So when he starts his singing and dancing their reactions are hilarious. Limmy's angry nightclub dancing will never not be funny

I keep going back to the Two Princes video, as it's just amazing from start to finish. From Limmy trying to imitate and ingratiate himself with the bloke by twisting his cap to match him, to him quickly turning on him and absolutely fucking hating him by the end. The added factor of the other bloke completely blanking it all makes it even funnier

Does anyone know for certain, one way or another, whether his karaoke collaborators can see him?

I love Limmy's new thing of retweeting pictures of animals being cute, pretending that he's an expert in that particular breed and asserting that the animal's behaviour is actually evidence that it is frightened or hurt. He's so good at nailing a person's tone, even in text form. That "OK, so." bit at the start is exactly the sort of self-importance those tweets usually start with.

The other person records their parts separately and can't see Limmy. That's why there's no reaction.

Limmy goes into Twitch Sings and picks videos that have already been made and then reacts to them as if it's live.

edit - didn't see dr sanchez had already explained the twitch sings thing

He spent ages on stream yesterday arguing with someone about whether it's okay to drink and cycle. Absolutely mind-numbing but it became hilarious in the end when I kept tuning out and then realising he was still repeating the exact same point 5 minutes later.

They can't see him, they're pre-recorded by others who were singing along to someone else's pre-recorded video

He has started to complete his own videos so people can sing along with him and react but it's not bore much fruit as of yet.

The accidentally funny ones are definitely better to react to but I'd love to see someone normal faced with Limmy's 'blehem' face
