    Am I the only person on the planet that * hates this guy?

    He is a nice person in general and a celtic fan etc. (and I like him in this way)....but as a comedian I find his humour to to be totally * and not funny at all.
    I heard all this stuff like "hes the next billy Connolly".....no * were near him imo..every time I hear of great comedians his name pops up and I watch youtube clips but I end up turning it off as its *....am I watching the wrong clips?

    I have seen him on tv programmes and I * cringe also...and his CHAD HOGAN stuff is *

    PS I aint drunk , just asking LOL

    A like him maybe its because his humour is broadly from his glasgow roots (a know he's from Clydebank)

    Stories about getting hassle on bus ,having an empty ect a find funny

    The chad hogan stuff a think he ripped the * oot it and find a boring now
    He sold out several nights in a row in SECC so he canny be that bad

    As for comparing to billy Connelly in his heyday he no a patch on him

    Think he's great. Only have seen 2 shows where he did the Chad Hogan stuff, both were funny imo.

    Quite like him he's learning his craft, and he's just started out really. I'm sure he will get even better, prefer him to Gervais and Scarecrow Brand.

    I like him. All down to folks taste, some think Michael McIntyre is hilarious but I would rather take a boot to the baws than watch him.

    I like more vicious comedians...Bill Hicks/Jimmy Carr/Frankie boyle/Jim Jeffries...but even with that I still like my soft comedy....he just doesn't seem to be funny to me...ill start looking up more vids,get some more time put into him

    I can understand not liking him, humour is subjective.

    However * hating him? I'm not sure what that could possibly be based on?

    He is hilarious.

    Best thing about him is he takes normal, every day Glasgow stuff and makes it funny. Also funny for lots of different types of people/place, you don't need to be from Glasgow or West Coast of Scotland to understand his stuff.

    Massive Celtic fan to, and is actually a fan who goes to games (not glamarous ones like Barca, but normal ones like Hibs away etc) unlike some other celebs.

    He's very funny. His stand up shows are almost always great, his dvd's are good and it's only his tv show that was *, but distilling spontaneous comedy always ends up that way.

    This was one of the funniest things he's ever done.

    He should be a commentator on Celtic TV or do the half time draws or something!

    I've only saw his first DVD, and I did enjoy it.

    I wouldn't go as far as saying he had me in hysterics, but most of his material does make me laugh.

    He's good in this video:
