Kevin Bishop is playing Nigel Farage in a sitcom/mockumentary


#1

hands up if you’ve ever heard an idea for a tv programme that sounds terribler in your whole life?

(apart from maybe “Jude Law is the Pope” but i don’t think so)


#2

Might start using that as mock consternation, ‘aye and Jude Law is the Pope… waitaminute!’


#3

Nigel Farage has been playing Nigel Farage in a sitcom/mockumentary for YEARS!


#4

“Do bears shit in the woods?”

  • “IS JUDE LAW THE POPE!?”

#5

thanks for reminding me of star stories, you dickhead


#6

Eurgh yeah, how does he keep getting work


#7

Googled him, and remembered I’ve Googled him every time his name comes up on here.

Get him confused with someone, can’t think who. (Not John Bishop)


#8

Oh… Kevin Bridges!

~shrug~


#9

Harold Bishop?


#10

he was in the porridge remake last month. it’s been commissioned for a full series.


#11

Jude Law? seems an odd choice


#12

i think you mitre be right about that


#13

absolute state of this


#14

F.U.C.K.I.N.G.H.E.L.L. :frowning::anguished::fearful::weary:


#15

Still dining off of his role in muppet treasure island


#16

this is the only reason I can differentiate him from that ‘Lee Nelson’ knobhead

Bishop’s hilariously high-pitched singing in that film is far funnier than anything he’s done since, incidentally


#17

“Look how funny Nigel Farage is let’s put him on everything, he’s great copy… Oh look now he’s stirred up a wave of bigotry and we’ve left the European Union. Let’s continue giving him exposure and see what funny things happen next.”


#18

They’re different people? Ohhhhhh… :laughing:

for some reason I thought this was Kevin Bridges. No idea who the other fella is, thought that was ‘Lee Nelson’ but apparently not
