Comedian Rips Into The New Labour Subprime Lie...

Recommended Posts

On Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow last night, Patrick Kielty starts ripping into the New Liebour idea that subprime is something from overseas. Gordon takes a beating. Quite funny and very true.

I've never found him funny before, maybe it was the type of shows he hosted. I was amazed the way he poked fun at the Irish situation, the subprime and the best bit bankers mating with monkeys to produce Estate agents :lol:

A new found respect for him.

I certainly wasn't a fan of the sh*te Saturday night TV he did and also have found a new found respect for the guy.

I thought he was fairly brave, after all standing there in Belfast and telling the audience they were subprime is probably a little close to the truth for most, considering the way the NI market has gone.

+1.

I have to admit my opinion on him has changed a wee bit after seeing that set; always had him down as the dumbed down celeb presenter type but he was very funny and cutting last night.

I turned over the second he came on, have always found him pitifully unfunny & up his own ****. Can't even bring myself to watch the iPlayer clip.

Marcus "Tosser" Brigstocke on the other hand makes Kielty look like a loquacious comedy genius ...

An interesting and brave routine considering the 'bubble' Belfast audience. It was like saying: 'you idiots, your bad judgement and gullibility is the reason we are in the mess.' It must have been uncomfortable for many in the audience.

Not his biggest fan but I thought it is a welcome addition to the debate. If comedians start relating to this, then we have hope.

same here. although he IS funny, ive found it difficult to accept a funny man from the north of ireland.

things over there seemingly so horrendous for so many decades.

a smile does seem to match such dire history.

Great stuff! He's heading back in the right direction with this sort of thing.

He used to be funny until he moved over to England and started doing middle of the road watered down dross.

The old Kielty was one of the most controversial comedians in the UK, took his life in his hands with some of the old routines he used to do.

Never seen much of kielty so can't comment, but do recall Little Britain with Tom Baker voiceover some years back saying something like "The BBC exists to serve the public with quality entertainment...and provide an income for Patrick Kielty"...

I can't bring myself to watch it, I'm afraid.

Up there with the least funny people on the planet. Almost as bad as Mcintyre himself.

I've never forgiven him for Fame Academy

Hi da was murdered in The Troubles.

Ex-UDR man Delbert Watson was one of three men, including a former Royal Marine, who received life sentences for the horrific killing of Jack Kielty. Watson was also charged with 18 other paramilitary offences, including attempted murder, possession of guns and membership of the UVF.

That's absolutely bang on the money!

He used to be hilarious back when he was doing local shows like PK Tonight, he really used to push the boundary

It's a very interesting observation. Not like in the 80s and 90s when Ben Elton & co. laid into the Tory government. Of course, Spitting image was mainstream.

We have HIGNFY and Bremner, Bird and Fortune, but I'd class them as for an educated palette...

It makes you wonder why there is so little comic criticism of the bankers and what is probably a government a lot worse than the much lambasted Tories of the past.

Today's comedians: are they part of the establishment? Are they denied access? Or do they not get it?

Didn't Kielty interview HPC's very own FP about house prices last year sometime? I think he has been on the ball for a while tbh!
