Can belt out a tune, has a liking for tattoos, and is a little bit mental.

You know, bud, sometimes asking a question instead of hightailing it to Google generates answers that are a lot more fun, and more appropriate.

I like tattoos, and I'm a little bit mental .... but I can't carry a tune in a bucket Ok, two out of three aint bad

Probably the most successful comedians of the last ten years, with the Avid Merrion character, and the series Bo' Selecta!

Critically acclaimed, and hugely popular with audiences.

Quite a coup for Blackpool.

I should imagine he'll be a big draw.

well, I have heard of him......but I have to admit that I loathe him.
OK, call me sad! I do have a sense of humour, but it isn't tickled by crude,lewd behaviour and foul language. (shudders)
It can't be a generational thing because Ma loves him and laughs her socks off at him.

Was he the guy who switched on the 1382 lights? There was controversy then as well. No-one outside Canterbury had ever heard of him.

I don't find crude, lewd behaviour, with or without bad language, the least bit comedic.
It isn't big and it isn't clever. I choose not to watch it.

He is crude.

But part of the joke is the character's a pastiche, and reflects today's obsession with celebrity.

Similar to Alan Partridge.

Who showed that you don't need to be intelligent to work in television.

Just luckily in the right place, at the right time.

I'll bet my last dollar he'll get more laughs than either Jayne Mansfield, or Red Rum.

Two past Blackpool switch hitters.

Past celebrities, who've switched on the illuminations.

My own favourite was Gilbert Harding, in '54.

He was a hoot.
