Have You Tried Listening?

We live in a time where people are so easy to be offended, and a lot of the time it’s for the most innocuous and ridiculous thing…

“You can’t say that!… That’s offensive… That’s racist… No I’m not black, but my next door neighbour is and I feel offended on their behalf… No, my next door neighbour is not here, but if he were…”

Mate, shut up! I’m not saying that we should all go around shouting out negative terms, but all I’m asking is to have some common sense and use your brain. As people get more easily offended by the

My Nightmare Gig

For those who think this stand-up comedy game is all glamour, read on please and have some reality come your way… This is my gig from hell!

I have this continuous joke with one of my best mates where he claims that I’ve “made it” in comedy and I profusely argue the opposite – cos trust me, I haven’t! And if I ever needed a compelling case to prove my point, this one gig in particular would be exhibit A.

It’s Friday night in the run-up to Christmas and I’m performing at a rugby club… already this doesn’t fill me with confidence for

Most Shocking Red Card Moments

So it turns out Patrice Evra doesn’t always “love this game”, as we saw last week when he attempted to KICK A FAN IN THE HEAD… Yep, Patrice went straight-up old-skool Street Fighter on his own fans. In fact, in his next Instagram video he should change his catchphrase from “I love this game!” to “Hadouken!”

As a result Evra was shown a red card – no surprise there – and it got me thinking about the most shocking red card moments I’ve seen in my years as a football fan. So here’s my top 10, in reverse order:

Most Brutal Heckle Ever

As a gigging stand-up comedian you get a few heckles every now again, maybe more if you’re shit!

And in my 10+ years on the circuit I’ve had a few heckles thrown my way… “you’re wank!” from a very charming and classy woman in Sheffield who was offended that I was talking about things in the news, cos in her words “you’re talking about things that are going on in the world and that’s not right!”… What an absolute bellend!

Or there was the “I can’t see you” from a guy in King’s Lynn who made the heckle because I was wearing

The Rooney Dilemma

I missed the game versus Slovakia on Sunday, although from what I hear it sounds like I didn’t miss much. But what I did hear from the game is that Wayne Rooney was playing deep in midfield, and then the next day I saw a quote from Sam Allardyce saying it’s not for him to tell Rooney where to play…

Really? Really Sam? It’s not your place to tell Rooney where to play? As the manager, I think it bloody is mate!

And this brings me on to my main gripe, as I feel like we’re going around and around in a
