I’m trying to put my finger on it and I think it hinges on whether you find his persona funny. Because he’s not much of a joke teller say, he just relays a series of whimsical tales/observations which (based on the evidence of those Netflix specials anyway) I don’t find funny. And I don’t find his persona funny either so I’m just sitting there wondering what there is to laugh at.
Basically how I feel about John Bishop. Nothing against him, seems like a good lad. Just can’t identify what’s meant to be funny.
