Was never funny.
Absolutely staggered that Micky Flanagan is getting any respect on here. Some of his material is definitely problematic.
CW: man doing a racist impression of a Chinese man
100%. Think that’s what made me realise his kind of mean, slightly bitter persona wasn’t an act and now I just don’t find it funny in the slightest
When he’s good, he’s really good but quality control got thrown out the window when he became a big podcast man
Also a bit of a creep I’m given to understand.
Have seen him be very funny but there is a definite nasty streak there
I just don’t think stand up is very funny
kind of amazes me that all these people manage to make a living doing the jokes they do
Also that Metro collumn he did for ages (still does? dunno don’t live in london anymore) was guff.
Do enjoy how unrelentingly bitter he is about how much people love Stewart Lee
See he could do a thing about how he’s really thin skinned and how much it bothers him and it would be funny. But he really is thin skinned and it does bother him, so
I would have said funny up until the unpleasant gossipmongers business
Needs a middle option
The ratio is off here
Tbf with me has a lot of goodwill from the Peacock and Gamble days as well the Radio X show, no idea what his standup is like these days
Would have said shite until her Off Menu episode.
