I was absolutely shocked to find out about Russell Brand, I had no idea he was a comedian.

Actually seen quite a few comedians making that very point, that he was only ever a media personality and had never actually worked on the comedy circuit!

Does he tell jokes or funny stories?

No.

Therefore not a comedian.

"So its Russell Brand thats the name mentioned, I am so surprised by that" said no one ever.

He has done stand up hasn't he?

If its any good or not is it a different matter but plenty of comedians about that are objectively not funny and seem to just tag along to events.

I am the same, a friend went and saw him last year and said all he did was chat, no jokes, nothing funny and not really anecdotes. It was more of a question and answer session with the audience and lots of aggression, she said it was like he was coked up all gig.

He shares a lot in common with JRM, some people think he is intelligent 'cos he uses long flowery language but if you dig beneath the surface he is just a populist twat!

Ealing council. Fuckers gave me a parking ticket. Rear wheels on the edge of the double yellow lines. Quite literally. Apparently the bumper also counts as being on yellow lines despite not touching the ground! No obstruction caused.

Cunts.

Talking to a traffic warden only a couple of days ago and I asked him this very question as I was never sure if it was the overhanging of the vehicle or the tyres.  He replied it was a silly law and that it was the back/front wheels that counted, they must be inside the double yellow lines, he explained that a car may overhang a couple of feet whereas a lorry/van could overhang by maybe eight feet and that was perfectly legal.  Strange law, I always made sure the entire vehicle was inside the lines as I was never sure.  Hope that helps, maybe worth an appeal ??  Good luck.

I think with these professions, and all professions there will be good ones, average ones and crap ones.

My bug bear is car salesmen (now or used, I'm not fussy!), if a car is on sale for £15k its on sale for £15k, the whole 'I need to speak to my Sales Manager' bullshit gets right on my tits, last car we bought we basically chose it then sent FiL to buy it, he loves all that shit!
