My only hope is that he was kicked to death by a gang of homosexual asian mother-in-laws.

Well done.
You know his routine wasn't his actual self? I've met him many times and he's a regular friendly person. I thought it was well known he was putting on a show :confused: Next you'll be telling me Dame Edna is a woman :D

It's a shame though. In a world gone just a little too politically correct it was nice to have a big of rude humour once in a while.

So you're saying that it's ok to act like a racist and make people from ethnic backgrounds a target for your humour as long as you don't really mean it? His material was clearly representative of his actual views.

Although I was never a fan, I wasn't particularly bothered by him either. He was a Shock Comedian, and his jokes and jibes went out in all directions. He probably had a good old poke at Fat Bigoted Northerners too .

Ah well. Roy Chubby Brown will make a few quid out of it anyway.

Seeing as he came from one of the backgrounds that he just to 'poke fun at' i dont see the problem.

It's a shame to loose any life, he will be missed.

For the most part in his case I couldn't agree more.

I think you mean a world where offensive homophobia, racism, nationalism, and blatant misoygyny isn't applauded anymore? What a shame for the rest of us.

And Bill Hicks, too. And the great Mitch Herberg.
