The Genius of Steve Bell
He’s been celebrated this week for 30 years in the business. Here:
IMHO opinion he’s the best in the business by a country mile. But even by his high standards, today’s comment on the G8 is a corker

Ok Woppit. Seeing as you’re being so positive, would you like to nominate someone who you do rate then
I’m sure you yourself would have no problem grabbing the pencils and rustling up something perfectly observed, contemporary, witty, topical, funny, then beautifully executed. All on stupidly tight deadlines, on a daily basis for 30 years. Could you give as a link to some of your efforts, then I can compare and contrast?Posted 6 years agoGarry_LagerMember
There’s genius there no doubt (that G8 one is superb), but he can be a bit heavy handed and one note, don’t you think? Had a few ups and downs over the years – if you want something flat out ridiculed and eviscerated there’s none better. He’s not so good with stuff that needs a more nuanced approach – he failed badly with George Bush for example. He wasn’t alone there tbf – hard to satirise satire.Posted 6 years agoernie_lynchMember

Oxymoron of the week.
The greatest contradiction in terms you’ve heard all week Woppit ? I take it you consider Steve Bell to be exceptionally daft then ?
Well that’s a pretty damning indictment coming from someone who struggles to understand the news on the radio, and sets new standards of unmatched daftness on STW.Posted 6 years ago
