Where the fuck is Mark Lamarr?
« on: October 25, 2017, 01:07:51 PM »
I bumped into someone who was at school with him and even HE doesn't know. Why hasn't he even turned up on the Sidebar of Shame, looking twenty years older than he did in 1997, 'flaunting his curves'?

I like to think he's now a silver man somewhere in London, or possibly serving a custodial sentence.

I do wish he still did radio though; Peterson should get him on worldwidefm or something.

The only thing I remember from the last decause was some dvd extra he was on with Sean Lock which looked fairly recentish, can;t remeber where I saw that though. He looked basically the same except a bit more grizzled.


Come back Mark Lamarr, if you are reading this.

He was on the DVD extras for 15 Storeys High which aired between 2002 and 2004.

Didn't he and Mark Kermode morph into the same vessel?

Actually, good point - Kermode quickly piled on the terry when Lamarr went quiet.  Coincidence?

I suspect that being the unfunny one and having 50s-throwback hair can only get you so far in life.

I'm sure the thing I saw was only a few years old, I think the dvds came out around 2008 ish, but it was more recent than that.

Not necessarily - if you like Quavers, Poundland is the place to get them.

His Wikipedia page is a bit joyless:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Lamarr

And I wonder what they mean by ‘years active’?  Is he not breathing now or something?

He returned to The Black Lodge sometime in 2011.

Paid by cheque.

And why not - look at the number of items on the screen!  Comes to at least £11.

My research has led me to conclude he's on Portobello Road. I would commence your sweep from the Poundland.

His mission complete he returned to the 1950s.

I met Mark Lamarr when I was a kid - he was doing his 'roving reporter' bit on the Big Breakfast. Turned on the telly and there he was, just down the street, I could see him from my bedroom window. Naturally we all piled down there to call him a twat and get ourselves on the telly.

Is it just an indictment that the 90s lad-britpop-gazza-ladette-dove-from-above shit is well and truly over. You either become an author of try-to-hard novels or fade away. At least a chance to grow old gracefully unlike our 70s heroes who got shiny grey suits and made shite MOR in the Caribbean.

I met Lisa Rodgers doing similar.

You say it's over, but if you look at the Radio X schedule it seems it's been resuscitated. No doubt for indie dads in their Zafira.

There was some speculation in one of the Sean Hughes threads as to wether the lesser spotted Lamarr had just invested the cash from his heyday well so was now just being quietly wealthy somewhere. While buying Quavers in Poundland doesn't necessarily contradict that theory, it does make it seem a little less likely.

There is always a fascination with people who withdraw from celebrity (as opposed to being forced out against their will). Actors and comedians are expected to keep going until they drop and actually retiring is considered almost perverse.

Is there a Portobello Road in Dubai as well then?
