Is the right answer.

What he said. He's famed as a wit without ever having done anything to deserve it.

chap, Monday, 8 December 2008 16:28 (ten years ago) link

Spot on precis.
But he also has "a slight smirk" in his repertoire. He's multi-talented.

xp - did I dream it or has Gervais done that exact joke (about winning "real awards") before?

best thing Deayton ever did is that KYTV ad where he trips up little girl after she nutmegs him

Yentl vs Predator (blueski), Monday, 8 December 2008 16:30 (ten years ago) link

I thought he was famed as a letch and a cokehead?

Matt DC, Monday, 8 December 2008 16:32 (ten years ago) link

don't know to what extent he was responsible for writing on HIGNFY but Radio Active/KYTV stuff was good and he's a reasonable one-note actor

Yentl vs Predator (blueski), Monday, 8 December 2008 16:32 (ten years ago) link

Deayton is fucking hilarious on the first series of "Nighty Night."

The History Boys is one of the worst films I have ever seen, and this gurning scumbag is very much part of its vile parade.

true
I expected hot public school boy on public school boy action and boy was I dissaboynted

not that I want to see Corden do it with another human being

Allegedly.

i watched the youtube clip of kevin bishop throwing things at the inbetweeners guys as they collected their award ( ) and thought he looked like a nasty coked-up fuckwit. checked out some of his sketches and the reality is far far worse:

so depressing that this is where british comedy is right now. the clips ive seen of inbetweeners aren't much better either, but this bishop guy is the absolute pits. like bobby davro level pits. even if he was slightly funny he shat all over it by being in a fucking natwest advert. is this a new low in vaguely-edgy comedians sucking corporate cock the second it's offered?

NI, Monday, 8 December 2008 20:43 (ten years ago) link

I don't mind Kevin Bishop. I think he's probably a complete tool, but some of his stuff raises the odd laugh.

grimly fiendish, Monday, 8 December 2008 20:47 (ten years ago) link

Yeah right, as if James Cordon was ever going to shout abuse at Ricky Gervais.

DavidM, Tuesday, 9 December 2008 14:44 (ten years ago) link

omg that youtube clip!

Katy Brand "Fuck you Bishop....(to audience) he never paid for our baby..."

think Bishop then says "you're still carrying it"?!

i dunno if he is all that bad - some of these guys deserve to have stuff thrown at them...someone should've clouted him anyway tho. Star Stories has it's moments. it took me ages to realise it's him in those NatWest ads for some reason.

Yentl vs Predator (blueski), Tuesday, 9 December 2008 14:53 (ten years ago) link

Now Katy Brand, there's a talent for you...

Much funnier than the show, I'd wager.

Work colleague was at school with Corden. Really, REALLY hates him.

could lose a few pounds, this guy. a bad example to the kids.

He is vile and totally disgusting

the pinefox, Tuesday, 24 February 2009 14:31 (ten years ago) link

I think Horne's the really fucking evil one, though, with his square chin and squinty eyes and scarf and theiving little fingers. Dirty fucking cunt.

Sickamous Mouthall (Scik Mouthy), Tuesday, 24 February 2009 14:32 (ten years ago) link

I suppose that most people here saw these two fuckers "presenting" the Brits?
Parodying the pottery scene from Ghost? WTF? Is it 1990 already? Next BBC Three/3/III will be showing this...

Don't really know him, but if he's doing things with Corden then let's agree, both cunts

the pinefox, Tuesday, 24 February 2009 14:42 (ten years ago) link

wow 1990! nice

the pinefox, Tuesday, 24 February 2009 14:42 (ten years ago) link

maybe time for a parody of ICE ICE BABY by VANILLA THE ICE

the pinefox, Tuesday, 24 February 2009 14:42 (ten years ago) link

Someone's already done that - it's called "Ice Ice Baby", by Vanilla Ice...

snoball, Tuesday, 24 February 2009 14:44 (ten years ago) link

I would still like to know what the Pinefox has against the History Boys.

David Bentley: Rhythm Ace (Matt DC), Tuesday, 24 February 2009 14:45 (ten years ago) link

I must have missed this Vanilla Ice chap's series on BBC 3

Anybody seen Horne in Entertaining Mr Sloane? I was keen but tickets appear to be £45, so maybe not.

was thinking the same thing

f f murray abraham (G00blar), Tuesday, 24 February 2009 14:54 (ten years ago) link

Horne and Corden, the 21st century Little & Large, except not as funny.

snoball, Tuesday, 24 February 2009 14:57 (ten years ago) link

was thinking the same thing

me too. also what, specifically, makes Corden "vile and disgusting" - if not just that he is porky and often unfunny (esp. when not in character).

my Mum likes him because "it's nice that he laughs at other people like Sean Locke's jokes so much"

i like Horne too - esp. recent appearance on Buzzcocks where he and Martin Freeman did the 'look of haplessness and despair' thing together

Brits hosts have performed terribly since relatively acceptable Chris Evans in '95

O Supermanchiros (blueski), Tuesday, 24 February 2009 15:04 (ten years ago) link

But they made such a mess of the Brits, not just presenting it incompetently, but peppering their between-act links with unfunny jokes which presumably they scripted themselves. "Craig David hasn't had a hit single for a while!" oh hahahahaha...

snoball, Tuesday, 24 February 2009 15:07 (ten years ago) link

Funny because it's true. Oh wait...

zero learnt from nero (Neil S), Tuesday, 24 February 2009 15:09 (ten years ago) link

you get the Brit awards presenters you deserve for watching that shit

O Supermanchiros (blueski), Tuesday, 24 February 2009 15:14 (ten years ago) link

Precisely.

Sickamous Mouthall (Scik Mouthy), Tuesday, 24 February 2009 15:17 (ten years ago) link

yeaeh, if you don't watch it, you get better presenters!

Mark G, Tuesday, 24 February 2009 15:19 (ten years ago) link

For some unknown reason I was watching a "making of" Gavin & Stacey show, which directly followed an episode which I also had inexplicably watched.

For my money Stacey is one of the most saccharine actresses I've ever seen. Nothing she says is memorable. I have no doubt that lots of people like her because she seems "sweet", but she brings a whole lot of nothing to the part. Even the guy who plays Gavin is better. You get the feeling that in private he's a bit of a cunt but at least you've got that to hold onto. As for their on-screen chemistry - I know these things are subjective, but I actually thought they were supposed to be brother and sister for the first 3/4 of the show.

So what does James Corden say to the interviewer, while the lighting guys are lining up another shot? "It was like really important for us to have their relationship be really believable - the entire show is built around that - if you don't believe their relationship the whole thing falls apart." Too right.

(Later, Gavin says that he is incomparably thrilled to get to work with the actress who plays Stacey - he says he learns from her, that he's so lucky to play opposite someone of her talent. I think he may have even convinced himself of this.)

maybe the people who like THE HISTORY BOYS and WHITE TEETH would also like a lengthy essay outlining reasons why OCEAN COLOUR SCENE were not very good.

the pinefox, Tuesday, 24 February 2009 15:27 (ten years ago) link

btw, dreadful as White Teeth is for the first 300pp or so, it actually does get worse in the last 200, which is a difficult thing to imagine until you witness it happening

the pinefox, Tuesday, 24 February 2009 15:29 (ten years ago) link

you are talking about the History Boys film and not the book right? so are you also talking about the White Teeth TV series as opposed to the book - or both?

O Supermanchiros (blueski), Tuesday, 24 February 2009 15:32 (ten years ago) link

I think I'm gonna use this thread as another excuse to plug Limmy's Show, aren't I? Yes I am. On iPlayer till tomorrow night, one-off pilot (at present), only shown on BBC Scotland, best British sketch show I've seen since The Armando Iannucci Shows, can confidently predict will be better than whatever Corden and Horne come up with.

William Bloody Swygart, Tuesday, 24 February 2009 15:34 (ten years ago) link

Corden always makes me think of Andy Richter (and the comparison doesn't flatter Corden):

Tracer Hand, Tuesday, 24 February 2009 15:34 (ten years ago) link

Tracer re Stacey she's an entirely believable character which presumably serves as some kind of counter-balance to Nessa's general absurdity - at least I think that's the intention. But the believability of Stacey doesn't make her a waste of time imo.

O Supermanchiros (blueski), Tuesday, 24 February 2009 15:35 (ten years ago) link

Like, i don't know why anyone pays him.

I don't really care what he's like as a person, that Paul McCartney thing was great.
