    Dingledodies was great and the new series Good News or whatever I also think it pretty great, he isn't anything new or unseen but he is funny in my eyes.

    People slag off Howard for being predictable, repetitive, reusing jokes and having weird facial mannerisms, but say the only good thing about MtW is Frankie Boyle???!!! I loved him for the first series or two, but he's now by far the most tedious person on it.

    You're totally right about Merton. He turned down Countdown as he thought he wouldn't be able to be funny all the time. It means you get slightly cringe-tastic humour almost all the time but then that seems to work on that sort of a show.

    I would say fair play to all comedians for giving it a go. But I just can't find Howard funny. Parsons isn't too bad, but I just very rarely find anyone funny on Mock the week.

    I find him quite funny. I love Hugh Dennis too. Andy Parsons is a fucking arsehole though who's speech pattern makes me want to punch him repeatedly.

    We're celebrating 75 years of Batman - and here's my look back at Rocksteady's Arkham series.

    Andy parsons is shit.....hugh dennis is the biggest hack in the industry.

    Howard and boyle hold that shit together...or did, if russell is carrying the show now they're in trouble.

    Wanky cameos from american and canadian stand ups that spew off 10 year old material is the answer then fuck this shit.

    /say something in a posh accent
    /look into camera menacingly for 15 seconds

    Hugh Dennis, ladies and gentlemen!

    Frankie Boyle is the forum in human form. I don't know what did it - maybe it was the baby mittens thread, but somehow we seem to have conjured up a walking, talking golem entirely by accident. Who knew the forum was Glaswegian?

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    Yeah he does overdo that a bit in Mock the Week (but his voice over bits are fantastic!) however in Outnumbered he's fabulous.

    Christ, that takes me back. Saw Punt and Dennis in Northampton, they were great.

    Used to serve Steve Punt in Oddbins back when I lived in Wimbledon. Nice chap.

    I've only seen him on Mock The Week, and have avoided Outnumbered purely because he's in it.

    BTW, is there any truth in what people say about Frankie Boyle being a watered down Jerry Sadowitz? Boyle's even stolen jokes from him IIRC, and since Sadowitz has taken a dig at Boyle in his latest tour name there must be something in it.

    Sado has a tiny penis, he unfortunately gets it out at his gigs.

    For some reason I find Milton Jones to be the funniest thing on Mock The Week. Whenever he is on I am guaranteed to be laughing.

    Deathgibbon: yep, I've seen Sadowitcz a fair few times live, and he makes Boyle look like a cute and cuddly teddy bear in comparison.

    I saw them at Pompey Guild Hall, must've been the same tour. I thought it was ace. But then I am a huge Mary Whitehouse fan.
