Andrew Lawrence On Michael Mcintyre

Recommended Posts

Did anybody just see Michael McIntyres comedy roadshow from Dublin just now?

He had this comedian on called Andrew Lawrence who ended his routine with an absolute, bear faced, attack on the Baby boomer generation, blaming them for Gobal Warming, Financial Meltdown, Bubble priced houses.

He pointed out how we in this young generation cannot afford a house, on leaving university with thousands of debts cannot get jobs because they won't retire etc. etc. He pointed out that they had cheap houses, free education etc etc

Its nothing new for us on here, but to see it in comedy and out in the open with a performance like that was quite amazing....i reckon quite a few will have been left thinking....where did that come from! He was a great voice for an angered generation.

If you didn't see it, I'd urge you to watch it on the iPlayer. He was the third guest on, so check out the second half of the show.

Fantastic!

Last comedian Tommy Tiernan also very funny about the Irish boom and Crash.

"why don't we just find the ******* we owe all the money to and shoot him?"

It's a fair point. the government cannot be forced to repay the debt as it owns all the guns.

Yeah right!

You really think that only people who frequent this site have similar views?

Anyone with an ounce of common sense can work the problem out for themselves. Unfortunately common sense isn't taught at school so not many can.

It was awesome!

Hopefully more comedians will take up our cause, people need to be made aware of how unfair the current situation is.

Yes, I'm surprised that now close to a decade of unaffordable housing hasn't made more of an impact in the popular media. All we get is a bland, 'first time buyer struggle' news item every six months.

In 1999 a girl I knew on a low wage bought a flat in the South East for £45 after saving a 5k deposit. Now a flat like hers would be £160k+. Can you imagine just what a massive impact that's had to a generation? How many are stuck at home, in dank BTL rentals, HMO slums or delaying kids and marriage year after year. What about those those sitting on huge mortgages that they have to scrape to meet every month - the stress and strain of it all, the no-end-in-sight-ness? The people now reliant on social housing that could have made their own way in the world pre-boom. It's a massive sociological problem that has rendered society non-functional in a decade.

It should be a defining issue.

not only that but all the 'investment' that would have put this country utilising its talent has been 'wasted' on overpriced property to the enrichment of the cunning and the greedy.

how to solve it - only the 'priced out' generation can make a stand and 'protest' - why are they not lobbying, refusing to pay exorbitant rents and refusing to buy ' overpriced houses'. ;) .

Excellent! Strong stuff!

You know, that part it is just about 1 or 2 minutes long. If someone here knows how to cut it and put on YouTube, then, with a little help ( ;) ), it could go "viral" pretty well... :) Anyone? Please?

GREAT idea. This needs to be done. Comedy gets a message across that a 1000 logical arguments can't.

Yes, good point. I wonder how many people got involved with huge mortgages that tied them down to inappropriate jobs, with no breathing space to change career or start potentially worthwhile businesses. High house prices destroy human inspiration - everyone just becomes a slave to them.

It's a fair point. the government cannot be forced to repay the debt as it owns all the guns.

Unless of course it's a foreigner with bigger guns who you owe the money to. Probably why QE is designed primarily to rob the UK pensions industry.

Works the other way too .. as many of those owed by the USA are likely to find out.

I saw it too. Fantastic. Excellent line about the scummy ex-LA flats - been there.

We still have a long way to go though. I was on a guided walking tour of London today and it was 50% property porn, 30% celebrity worship and 20% interesting facts. I bit my tongue because someone else was paying for me, but I would have loved to have made a scene. (Heckling from the back: "it's only worth what you can get for it", "it's a f'ing HOUSE not a property" etc).

I bet the guide was an ex-EA. We even stopped outside an EA window FFS!

The government doesn't have to repay the debt. However, said government has to take the consequences of not paying the debt that's due, when it's due... :ph34r:

But he wasn't even funny! He was f--ing embarrasing, bitter and twisted going on about old people should give up their job for him!

What trade do you have sir? talking in a high pitched voice is reaalllly funny. What a ******ing twit!

The guy on after him was a proper comedian.

Agree with this. Mcintyre seems to dredge up the unfunniest comedians on his road show program just so he can make himself look a bit funnier. Mind, enjoyed this bit:

That is why the Americans love their Second Amendment. And many would defend it with their lives, and lots of guns.
