- Peter Kay – not funny
I thought Rowan Atkinson was downright offensive to people who belong to the Church of England, especially the Archbishop. I am not C of E myself but as an essentialy Christian nation he shouldn’t be so insulting and then the remarks about shagging the neighbour etc etc. What an idiot! I can’t stand him. All this was very early in the evening when small children were watching. I don’t think any comedian is any good if he has to resort to offending peoples religious beliefs or smut. If someone was on TV insulting an Islamic leader there would be public outrage and claims of rascist comments! Then Peter Kay had to mention dog s**t and it was still only about 8pm. My 5 year old granddaughter saw it all and asked my daughter what shagging the neighbours means.Posted 5 years ago
Children in schools have been excitedly fundraising all over the country today and it of course they wanted to look in at the progress that Comic Relief was making. They should have been able to without having to have their viewing censored by their parents.
If they really must put Rowan Atkinson going on about the church & shagging neighbours then Peter Kay talking drivel, it should be after 9pm!
Personally, by 8.30 I was bored with the lot and switced the TV off.kayak23Subscriber

Is it me or is it just not funny this year, when was the last funny one. Still donated some money so must be doing something good
Some might say it’s giving the disadvantaged/dying Africans a much needed helping hand that should make you donate, not how much you are made to laugh but hey, I wouldn’t say that… 😉Posted 5 years agohallzMember
Have to say i agree 100% with Judy-Rockshox about Rowan Atkinson – i thought it was totally inappropriate. John Bishop was a sad man, Ricky Gervais was Ricky Gervais.
As for Peter Kay, well i’m a Boltonian and i always try to seek the positives in his act. Years ago he started well and i dont begrudge him the money he’s made, I just wish he’d enjoy a retirement on that money and give up making this rubbish. It was a good comedy idea – just very poorly executed.
That said, much of the video was shot in and around our village and the moorland scenes were all up where we go mountain biking so the video was interesting to me, if for the wrong reasons!Posted 5 years agoCountZeroMember
There isn’t a single contemporary comic, bar one, that I find in any way amusing. Miranda makes me squirm, her only ‘thing’ seems to be falling over in a forced, unnatural fashion, or being loud. McIntyre has never said anything whenever I’ve seen him on TV that has even made me smile. Tim Vine actually does, though; he’s a master of the quick one-liner, and when he was on 6Music yesterday morning his comments actually made me laugh.Posted 5 years ago
I can’t think of any comedian these days who’s up to the standards of Dave Allen, for example; he was the master of observational comedy.
