In a recent interview veteran surrealist/slapstick comedian, Vic Reeves, criticised the ubiquitous and poshly noisy comic success of the last few years, Michael McIntyre.
“He fits into what office workers like. He points out and notices things that everyone’s noticed already. The appeal is he creates a feeling the audience are part of a big easy-going gang.
“I haven’t seen much of him but what I have seen I didn’t like. It’s far too easy and soft. He’s got the same sort of appeal as The X Factor. The same people who think Jedward are funny will go and see Michael McIntyre.”
