Watch this and have a good laugh. :lol:

Thanks OP, it's been posted before, but always worth repeating

Ouch, that was obviously a bit close to the mark for some of the audience - lots of blank looks and people looking like they want to beat him up..

:D

burn the heretic!

That joke kinda bombed, but it shouldn't have. As you say, plenty of nervous giggling at an outsiders perspective on our debt addicted society.

Having said that, it's incredibly easy for a German to say that when back home they have such excellent renter-centric tenancy laws.

Faced with a rental market governed by the AST, most German's would also want to own a home.

Aye, reminds me of a few months ago, in a live comedy club where this guy cracks a joke about "everyone feeling miserable 'cos their houses are no longer worth as much as they were never worth in the first place."

This was in St Albans, in the middle of London's "banker belt".

Well, the stand-up noticed the deathly silence, and quickly changed to more appropriate subjects... such as poking fun at West Country yokels.

Smart guy B)

I saw him live in Edinburgh - very funny but lots of the same gags.

He did another one that didn't go down too well with one audience member. Mentioned something about bombing Coventry :lol:

The old chap in the audience from Covenrty was not too pleased. I found it ******ing hilarious though.

That was a comedy act? Sounded like a bland statement of puzzling facts about the UK to me.

You could tell the ones in the audience who were mortgaged up to the eyeballs.

I did laugh though.

Didn't bomb - just a bit awkward with a joke that depends on language and timing. Good stuff.
