Jack Whitehall

Just catching up with Jack Whitehall: Travels With My Father. It is somewhat insulting to the cultures it visits and is obviously carefully scripted in the main (like the Karl Pilkington series which it quite resembles) but the dad is great, much funnier than his son despite the premise being that the son would do the gags (the son's gags feel forced, the dad's humour actually comes from his character).

Whitehall himself seems to be the current media generation's idea of a funny comedian, i.e. about as funny as an ulcer on the foreskin.

He wasn't that bad as a fey numpty on Inside No. 9.  Maybe he should just stick to acting? 

Did he ever cop to ripping off Baaaad Dad?

The king of reciting things that sound that should sound funny and clever but are neither.

Made funny by cunts who wouldn't know funny if it kicked them in the balls.

How many shows do we need where celebrity X travels to Y with parent Z?

'How to Kill Yer Mammy' was good in parts.  The rest?  Gertcha.

Fresh Meat had some great moments from him too.

Haven't seen this show yet but can't stand his father, seems a first-class ponce. There was a fabulous moment at a Comedy Awards once when Jonathan Ross insulted him ("face like an arse", I think) and his face was a picture. Of an arse.

Watched both seasons over the last week or two. Michael Whitehall is a very funny man.

Isn't the dad just a standard posh Tory cunt? Why do I want to do watch a posh racist twat say exactly the kind of things I'd expect a posh racist twat to say?

Because of the free communion wafers.

He's getting a bit too old for this shit the posh student act now, what with being in his thirties.

He isn’t very funny at all, but I’d quite like to have sex with him
