The names he comes up with on would I lie to you are brilliant.  And they all turn out to be real people.

Bob: "There was Gary Cheeseman, we called him 'Cheesy' cos his mam gave him slices of cheese, cos she thought it was good for his spots"
Lee Mack: "Surely its because his name was Cheeseman?"
Bob: "No..."


I'd be interested to know how it translates abroad as it's really f***ing niche at times.

I think you need to have grown up with Vic and Bob to get them.  I've made a couple of Americans watch Shooting Stars and they just looked bewildered.

Seems to be the general reaction!

The 'Would I lie to you' stuff is brilliant. Seen those YT clips hundreds of times.

His recent fishing program with Whitehouse was absolutely lush as well -   :smitten:

Grew up watching Big Night Out after a night in the boozer and I've always been a massive Reeves & Mortimer fan.......Athletico Mince is right up my street.......British Managers Club and Barry Homeowner are my favourites.

Bob's interview with Richard Herring from a few years ago is worth a watch/ listen if you enjoy Bob.  It's available on Herring's podcast or YouTube.

I was never a massive fan of Shooting Stars, but I think Bob Mortimer is amazing on things like Would I Lie to You.  That hour long clip is just brilliant.

Think the "'Can I borrow Batman Forever?' 'No, you have to bring it back tomorrow'" Beardsley joke is the most unreasonably funny thing I've ever laughed at like, no idea why it cracked me up so much. :lol:
Newcastle 4-4 Arsenal: "From impending tragedy to near-triumph via the most improbable route possible - 95 minutes that neatly encapsulate 130 years of football on this particular piece of grass. Newcastle, United, will never be defeated."

Sir Bobby Robson - What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses or the marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city.

Catterick is class, proper League of Gentleman vibe (obviously Shearsmith is in it too)

Bob is great. What I think makes him great is that sense of anger that underpins much of what he does. All too often anger in comedy manifests as a trite assault on some political figurehead (c.f. every panel show on tv). However, with Bob the attack isn't against the symptom (the political) but the ground of the genesis of these symptoms - the societies in which they flourish. Underneath his work you find a constant despair at the pettiness, vanity, and avarice that plagues the human condition.

The psychoanalyst Lacan called this standpoint the discourse of analyst, the ability to see beyond the system by which ephemeral meaning is created and assigned by society. Occupying the position of the analyst is characterised by a cruel, cynical  type of humour that often borders on condescension, and a sort of disdain for the desires of others (the structure of which the analyst has some insight into, though they remain opaque for others), whenever they are made explicit. I think you can see this in a lot of Bob’s work, and particularly in Mince.

Agreed. He also says dog dirt which is really funny.

shooting stars was 100% about the quality of the little clip segments imo, could take or leave most of the rest of it
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

The latest three episodes are recaps of old stuff, if anyone doesn’t actually listen to AM yet.

Although this podcast may be funny, I literally can not listen to it if this bloke is on it:



Just nah.
