COMEDY

ACTUAL PROOF OF SOMETHING WAEN WANTS YOU TO KNOW ABOUT (EVEN THOUGH HE SECRETLY FINDS IT QUITE EMBARRASSING)
THE TIMES (APRIL 1, 2006)
Hard to believe, I know, but once upon a time I was apparently so amazing at comedy, The Times put me in a list of the Top 50 comedians working in the UK. It was 2006, I was still fairly active and I’m sure I only made the cut because they needed to list five musical comedians, and there were probably only five working in the Uk that year. But I still made the cut anyway, so FUCK YOU!!! Fuck you, you big piece of shit, Thomas, for ever doubting me.
THE ROUGH GUIDE TO BRITISH CULT COMEDY, 2006
And here’s MORE! Not content with naming me one of the fifty greatest comedians working in Britain around the time of April 2006, the UK critical establishment wasted no time in naming me one of the fifty greatest British cult comedians of ALL TIME. Well, they called Gary Le Strange that, at least, which is just the same as saying it was me. And it was called something like “The Icons of Comedy” rather than the 50 best, but now you’re just splitting hairs. It doesn’t matter that the author had a deadline to meet and had to fill the book with just something, anything. It doesn’t matter that I was quite new and he hadn’t quite had time to assess whether or not I was a flash in the pan or whether I had enough fans to justify the word ‘cult’. It doesn’t matter that if they reprinted it, or if it had been published any time after 2006, I’d be replaced by someone younger and funnier than me. No. What matters is that once, for a brief time at some unspecified point in 2006, someone thought they could get away with being taken seriously when they put Gary Le Strange in a list of comedians that also included Eddie Izzard and Alexei Sayle. So PUT THAT IN YOUR PIPE! Whether you smoke it is entirely up to you, but PUT IT IN YOUR PIPE, you great big doubting, pipe-owning twat. I RULE!*
*Not really, in real life I’m a bit shit
