Funny stuff
I like this one.

Yeah, I quite agree with what you are saying there............seems to have gone down hill somewhat...they are trying to blame the recession and the olympics, but we all know there is more to it than that...........cheers

Interesting how jokes about psychiatric illnesses are accepted by the Conman the English PM but racist jokes are unacceptable. Weird. There are only a few comedians brave enough to tell the truth about the fear.



The fear is derived from "multiculture" resulting in censorship of comedy at present in England. Hence the p**s-poor comedy.

Yeah, I totally understand where you are coming from dr treg......I went to live in Australia for 4 years and when I returned back home to the UK last year the comedy back home had completely changed. I find most comedy quite mundane now and it's all done with an approach of everyone being so careful not to offend anyone else...

I am saying this due to the fact that I have been doing comedy for quite a few years, but now I find it has come to the point of being so basic and kindergartenISH that I am on the verge of giving up, not because I hate comedy, but because it has been stripped down so much that you have to try and deliver material that I don't even find funny, but everyone else in the audience seems to be laughing their socks of.....Hopefully in the future things will change again, but I am not gonna hold my breath.....

But I quite like the video you posted...............doggy style c*** kick on the subway was funny....cheers

Glad that you enjoyed them......I suppose that each culture has its own sense of humour, some US comedy I like but I do struggle to find a lot of it funny........but hey, each to their own...........keep on smiling...
