regularly groped other comedians over the years. Inside the pants groping. One of them while a fella was with his gf. Comments like "will you get hard for me" and "do you want a blowjob". Stuff like that. I'd seen mention of it on reddit a while back but I guess in the current climate, the lads felt brave enough to come forward. Been happening for years apparently

then a statement released saying it was all part of his flamboyant persona and he didnt mean offence, no apology, kind of patted himself on the back

I tweeted about him a while ago and he replied to me pretty quickly. Prick must search himself on a regular basis
Oh jesus, same here. Daily vanity searches for sure.

Seems like the type who would stab his grandmother if it meant he could get on UK tv.

Apart from that, the only Western music you get in this city is... Tiesto playing in a couple of weeks. The students I teach have never heard of rock music, it's all the worst sort of EDM and K-Pop for them. And it's such a homogeneous culture with such strict social norms that everyone just wants to listen to what's cool so they can fit in i.e. the Vietnamese top 10, which is just awful tripe. I miss music and gigs :(
Only just realised you're in Hanoi! A few of my mates moved over there this year and I think they're playing music in the city in the form of improv nights. I'll ask them what they're getting up to.
Who are they? It's a small enough ex-pat community here, might know them.

Is dislike al porter as much as the next sane person but he's been on Brendan O'Connors cutting edge thing a couple of times and once he drops the whole ott routine he came across pretty well.

On the other hand I caught a few minutes of his set at EP this year (valid reasons, it wasn't by choice) and fuck me he was woeful. As I walked up the word "box" was mentioned for some reason which then lead to him repeatedly saying "box, it's another word for vagina". It's such childish humour.....desperatly trying to be offensive or something but it ended up like some awful adult panto
