Hey Martyn. I’m really sorry about this. I got shown some tweets without context and asked to ad lib put downs. I should’ve said no. My follow up tweet about moment of stardom - when I still didn’t know it was you - referred to the show not your work, which I greatly admire. D

People who were in Heaven 17 still have celeb status? Blimey.

David Baddiel can only pass as a comedian when somebody is paid to stand there and laugh at his jokes

A man who made a career out of standing next to a funnier man.

Yeah not really, but I couldn't think of anything else suitable that fit in the thread title.

Fascinated by CC this week. In the aftermath of the elections, a lot of British comedians seem to be concerned instead with the fact that people criticise them on Twitter.

That's the real injustice in modern Britain, evidently.

You'd expect nothing less from someone who has leeched off more successful people their entire life. You'd expect celebrity deference.

Scroll up the Twitter thread until you get to this:

And the first guy they call a "troll" turns out to be a member of Heaven 17, and whines in the comments:

Criticism of the establishment is now ‘trolling’ is it? Seriously, are we not allowed to question the motives and effects of clearly biased news organisations? Please enlighten me...


Thank you

What a plum

I meant it more that it's amazing that Baddiel immediately apologises because he recognises Martyn Ware as belonging to his group. People who are/were famous.

It's a group we tend to forget about as most battle lines are drawn around race, gender, class etc.

Could be misreading this and Baddiel was a really big Heaven 17 fan all those years ago. Which is disgusting, as the Human League were always better.

Not sure if you're trolling here DM, Ware was a founding member of Human League before forming H17.

They went from strength to strength after he left.

Oh, soz Danger Man, I didn't realise it was you. Thank you very much for your corrective information, and have now amended the post.

( I have realised that the post correcting my song title was done made  by the famous CaB poster and part-time fit Scouse actress impersonator Danger Man, and am now apologising. Droll, conceptual stuff, I'm sure y'all agree.)

I only corrected you because a few posters seemed to think I didn't know my Heaven 17/ Human League history.

Wait until you discover I'm Martyn Ware.

I like the nice, festive touch to Johnny's avatar ( nothing to do with the thread topic, but it's always worth pointing out when posters on 'ere do that sort of thing, and they should know their efforts are appreciated).

This doesn't surprise me in the slightest, after the most recent series of Taskmaster he proved himself to be absurdly stupid, and completely lacking in common sense too.

Your avatar of Jodie is very Christmassy because she's a cracker.

See? I can do posts like you.

Thanks, man.

Don't know about the weasel nature of his apology, but Baddiel under pressure to be funny produces some of the worst comedy ever. See Taskmaster chickpea skit for further proof. It's so perfectly awful.

Comer thread coming.
