There's got to be more than those two, surely!

Both are pretty good, although Frankie was really disappointing live. Essentially it was just a mashup of everything he'd done on Mock The Week, bar 5-10 minutes of crowd interaction.

Frankie is awful.
He has two jokes: Gordon Brown = Scrotum and Amy Winehouse = Abandoned horse.
Oh, and Scotland = shit.

comedian wise thats pretty much it. Family Guy and American Dad always bring a tear of joy and some of the stuff on adult swim (Robot Chicken, The Venture Brothers and Aqua Teen Hunger Force) bring a good smile. i just find newer comedians are pretty dull although Russell Howard is a good watch and has never repeated any of his material, which i think shows he is a genuine funny guy.

Well all I can do is stand-up wise, try out Dara O'Briain, Reginald D Hunter and Jack Dee...personally who I think are the best 3 stand ups at the moment. As for generally funny folk on TV, David Mitchell all the way.

I've seen him repeat a few jokes across TV shows, appearances and when I saw him live. Usually that fills me with a rage that only Peter Kay can give me, but considering how his jokes remain funny for more than 2 viewings I let him off. Plus he comes out with new stuff or variations on his old jokes quite often.

Absolutely love these two. I have all of Noble's DVDs, unfortunately missed seeing him in Peterborough as the venue caught fire shortly before the show and nobody thought to relocate it (even though all the local venues were free that night).
Seen Gorman though, absolutely hilarious.

well thinking about it, he has repeated the odd joke on the Mock The Week DVD's but i think thats purely because it can never be broadcasted. but his jokes are usually pretty fresh and he bases them on most of the day to day news and interaction with the audience.

Yeah, I've seen Russell Howard live too (infact he lives in my town) and about 90% of the stuff then was original, decent crowd interactor too.

Yeah he's easily the best comedian they have on the show. And considering his age and how long he's been working, he's doing bloody well for himself!

Just watched The Matrix Revolutions again on ITV2...

the ending is incredibly shit,isn't it?

After all the graft the guys did in the real world, we're leftwith Malakai, Sutri and the fucking Oracle living happily ever after in the Matrix, with a promise from The Architect that "some" (whom we never know) that want to be free'd, actually will.

Wtf? That's not an ending!
Who the hell reads anything in sigs these days, unless it's an animated gif?

The whole film's incredibly shit.
Only the original Matrix is real.


Downloaded Bloodbath at the House of Death earlier. It's only a rip from an old videotape but it'll do for me.

:yes:
I rented it from Lovefilm, very tempted to buy it (and I will if I can find it cheap enough). It's one of those films that'd be perfect for watching in a slightly very drunk state with the drunken movie-watching crew.
