He talks about everything that upsets or interests him. From the nature of comedy, to the takeover of the world by corporations, from Royalty to the Scottish independence, this is him taking the world apart. He's not the left wing comic of the Ben Elton school, I'm not sure he can actually be politically classified like that. He's more like the apolitical scholar. Sitting on high and shooting down his targets his acerbic wit that in turn amuses, shocks or just makes you think. The world could do with more like him
Now that he has given up the stand up game, I'd be very interested to see him fully commit to a book that concentrated even more on some of his great philosophical points, as he really does make some excellent points and just when he is building his theory or argument nicely he takes another turn into something about a celebrity footballer or soap star.
Read and re-read this with pleasure and laughter.
The aforementioned travesty making you spurt knowledgable blood from your jugular raining down on the underwhelming ignorance of the peasants and foreign dociles of which have no understanding or knowledge of your new found glory and tranquility and newly found argument of modern societies, with the burning and lynching of everything you once thought of as acceptable and unmistakeably generically followed as fact by the weak and the ignorant.
For what we have can not be sewed into the parallel thoughts of whom be near us, until the written texts of a tortured soul can haunt and scar our understanding of what we think. The sheer damnation that affects the mind can project onto others in a strongly set text and implement a holocaust affect of everlasting horror and subsequent remorse.
So now you must go and lust for your imagination to be captivated and traumatised by the heart stopping depths of a brilliant mind.
