He doesn't seem like someone who is naturally funny, to say the least.[1]
 1. Yeah, I know: look who's talking!
That's what I mean, he got a bit more encouragement than he perhaps warranted based on just being a bit of a weird guy in the right way at the right time.

I enjoyed that Milk Run clip posted upthread in a knock-off Blue Jam meets Vic Reeves House Arrest way. Shame for the lad, you hate to see it, etc.

I liked the music better than the bits with him speaking.

Lovely selection of RACIST CUNTS in the comments.
"Croatia, a team made up entirely of people actually from that Country, not taking a knee and have arguably the best football strip in the world, that's my team in 2021 as an Englishman."
The Croatian team is mostly ethnic Croats ? I wonder how that happened.

"Should start a chant to free Derek Chauvin"
As if to prove their point

"Nothing compares to the England teams of Italia ‘90 through to France’98. There was passion, tenacity, blood and a roller coaster of emotions!!"
And they won fuck-all.

"Sold your freedom for a game of football and a pint, get your papers out papers out now or of to the transition with you (Yes master we Oby)"
What ?

"Are there any indigenous anglo boys in the english side? Genuine question."
You could look at the team sheet, or maybe measure their skulls.

I saw one of his Edinburgh shows at the point where the industry still bought him as a potential panel show star, he clearly had talent doing silly accents & observational material with an aggressive edge. But it also looked like he didn’t enjoy it.

So that's two brown-eyed redheads. Are there any more?

By internet racist logic, I think having brown eyes makes him non-white.

Stick me on the list too, thanks.  Creepy-eyed ginge, reporting for ridicule. Same as it ever was. “Redhead girls are fit though!”  YAWN.

There seems to be a big thing about English as an ethnicity at the moment. It is basically a way of denigrating black or asian English nationals when they can't tell them to go back where they came from. Technically English is an ethnicity but it is basically pointless as you would need to trace your family tree back dozens of generations to prove you were of that ethnicity, and the only people who care about it are racist cunts

Football fans and their constant obsession with PASHUN make me stabby. As if the current England team are soulless robots, as if people weren't having ALL OF THE FEELZ about England last WC. Likewise the racism. What do they do when, as happened against Croatia, a black player scores? Does he suddenly become white?

Also, did they forget John Barnes, Ian Wright, Andy Cole, Sol Campbell and all the other black players of the '90s? Or when Graham Taylor stood up for Barnes when fans were abusing him?

Beat a 10 man Argentina after a dubious red card for Argentina's Rattin in the quarter final.
England's third goal in the final wasn't a goal, and the 'they think it's all over' clincher was scored after the West German team had stopped bothering to play. (Play should have been stopped as fans were reportedly on the playing field.)
Fucking cheats.

England also got owned by a fat Argentinian midget in the '80s.

Everyone forgets that period when England qualified for nothing, but I suppose they were all pretending to be Irish and there are absolutely no black people in Ireland at all, so they get to keep their 'indigenous' credentials.

Looks interesting, will try to watch that later. Funnily enough, I'm just reading up about the Spanish Armada in Ireland at the minute - https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_Armada_in_Ireland think it will likely explain my dark eyes and hair. The locals would always speak Spanish to my Granny when she went on holiday.

Anyway yeah, still wouldn't change the mind of racists if they knew this stuff, they'd just handwave it away somehow.

His most popular video is this rant on the Indian COVID variant - 142k views, 2.7k comments:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HUrE-h-Kveo

Comments are a shitshow of conspiracy theorists who are watching and agreeing with no sense of irony. It's Al's Pub landlord x100. Top three comments:

"A genuinely deadly pandemic wouldn't require a 24/7 Govt and corporate media fear mongering campaign to make you believe it's real.🙄"
"I feel like im in an abusive relationship with the government."
"Well said."

Milk Run was one of the things he did that people liked (me included). It's on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TDSagYgc84c


I really like that song Terminally Ambivalent to You, near the start of of part two of that.

I'm genuinely confused by these videos. Is the joke just 'haha, this is what a cunt would say'? I'm guessing so, given the name of the 'character', but how does that jibe with his audience presumably being the kind of anti-woke free speech nutters who (presumably) actually share quite a large proportion of those views?

If it's not that, then there are literally no jokes in the video? I don't get it.

Edit: Oh, I see I've just basically rephrased the OP. Not just me then, ok.

I’m reminded by this that Lawrence filmed a set for series 2 of the Alternative Comedy Experience that was never used. In the finished show the comics set was intercut with footage of the comedian being interviewed by Stewart Lee, a real shame we’ll never see whatever was shot of Lee interviewing Lawrence, as it’s a good bet it was awkward as fuck.

Yeah the ethnic English thing has just come about so that they can be racist to English-born non-white people without being 100% overtly racist. If it wasn't that it would be something about English "mentality" or "spirit" or some other bullshit

He posted this just an hour ago under a character I've not seen before, Dr Gideon Micropenis, as a 'satire' against woke academics.

this one is on his rolodex of characters, definitely seen something before. In fact I played it to a couple of fellow academics and we all had to put cold creams on each other's rumps after being roasted so hard.

The problem is, as shit as this stuff all is, if you look at the views on Youtube it's clearly a path that works for him.

He's not getting big numbers or anything, but at a rough estimate I'd say he's probably getting five times' more views on Youtube than he was when he was doing his earlier stuff. Around 250k views in the past week alone. The one he released yesterday has been more viewed more in 24 hours than most of his videos have got in years.

He can knock any old shit out as long as it panders to that crowd, because they're not watching him demanding he be funny, just that he say things they agree with. Whether that transfers to ticket sales I don't know.
