I mean, really?
Norton wins Gervais’ comedy crown – the cynic in me would suggest that this may have something to do with his new BBC contract.
I kind of went off Graham Norton when he started his 5 nights a week stint. It was just too much, and wasn’t really funny after that, just repetitive. It’s the same kind of humour you can get by surfing the internet, and at least I can choose that myself rather than being forced fed (with a side helping of ‘celebrities’).
The real comedy news is sadder: Frasier is on it’s last legs. Easily my favourite comedy of the past few years, I’m enjoying the re-runs on Paramount which are nicely timed to fit in with our dinner-time.
