Quote from: BritishHobo on May 25, 2022, 06:28:54 PMOn the note of the Classic Scrapes, I do think the clips on the Josh Widdecombe show are the best version - with the exception of the longer ones taken from live shows, where poor James takes ten or fifteen minutes to tell a scrape because loads of other comedians keep interjecting with shit zingers. I think the shorter ones benefit from Josh's reactions though. The scrapes are a nice specific thing that you don't tend to hear often, and which I find really relatable; a shambling bloke getting into stupid situations that don't usually end in great punchlines or payoffs, just him feeling like a mess.

Quote from: Inspector Norse on June 09, 2022, 08:04:44 AMIs there anywhere to watch it legally that isn't Vimeo? Would one have to buy one of those DVDs they have now?

Quote from: Replies From View on May 25, 2022, 07:33:22 AMIs it possible your friend got the wrong end of the stick? I'm not defending a show being dreadful, but some people are staggeringly dull when it comes to perceiving irony, and will always claim "it wasn't ironic" when it wasn't accompanied by obvious indications from the performer.
Quote from: Ferris on June 09, 2022, 10:56:50 AMI liked that section
QuoteWhat was the Andy Cole and Dwight Yorke bit, since it was in neither special?
Quote from: Scrapey Fish on June 09, 2022, 09:19:11 AMThe criticism of Acaster doing panel shows is interesting because how many comedians are there that choose not to do them but would be good on them if they did?1) KitsonNot many others I can think of
Quote from: Ferris on June 09, 2022, 10:49:24 AMNot sure about that. Panel shows reduce an act to a one-note pastiche of themselves (from recollection, I haven't watched one since 2009).Kitson would instantly become "shambling northern weirdo one" in the edit, so unless he was heavily leaning into that character (with a load of specially-prepared gags) I don't see him coming across well.
Quote from: Martin Van Buren Stan on June 09, 2022, 01:28:39 PMThere's so much resentment of comedians who are great on panel shows from people like Stewart Lee and his fans take that baton and run with it. Lee went on every panel show that would have him, failed miserably, and now pretends he's above it and doesn't want easy commercial and popular success. Like the kid who applies for Oxford, then Cambridge the next year and spends the rest of his life calling Oxbridge elitist and snobbish.
Quote from: Scrapey Fish on June 09, 2022, 01:51:55 PMI'm undecided but it's a fair argument.He was good on Blockbusters anyway
Quote from: phantom_power on June 09, 2022, 04:37:00 PMIs that Kitson or Acaster? I would recommend watching Acaster on Blockbusters. He is a destructive force of nature, and funny with it
Quote from: Ferris on June 09, 2022, 03:46:05 PMLee was talked into hignfy by [management company name redacted] to plug live shows, he didn't have the skill set and dropped it pretty quick.
