Ross Lee: Dick Dastard Strikes Again

by Robert Popper on March 23, 2015 · 1 comment

I am beyond excitement: Between 2001-2003, Ross Lee–armed with a hidden mic–pounded the streets/shops/taxis of Leeds, Manchester and Sheffield and caused comedy havoc. I’ve been listening to these recordings ever since (I basically know them word for word), and now Ross and I have put all the best stunts onto one album.

I have been a huge fan of Ross Lee for many years. I think he’s one of the funniest people on the planet. You may know him from various TV things, including his role as Slimmer of the Year in Look Around You (the one with the Scary Picture). He’s a complete one-off – comedian, artist (he did the cover art), songwriter, and all round sillyman.

So, I do hope you enjoy this album and spread the Ross Lee word…

The world economy: fixed

Just repeat after me… ‘I am I am I am the resurrection and life of my finances and the US economy…’

Praise Tarvu!

Not one second is wasted. Can you BELIEVE what this German chap gets up to?! How about that foam bath at 4:00, and that weird orange bath he takes afterwards?! Or the deckchair/flask disaster at 5:19? And just what is going on at 10:35? I love his horrified look every time he gets out of whatever he’s fallen into. This is one to share with the grandkids one day…

Thank you, Gregg Barton. What a find! Here’s lots more.

Not awkward. I repeat: not awkward

Well, this is just perfect. Worth staying till the end to get a glimpse of the audience.

Thanks to @awesomer for this truly uncomfortable find.

Prepare to throw up

The hair-brushing, the leg-rubbing, the girl with the cushion. Arrrgh!

And here’s the website. A special cuddle to @secretgrooves for sending me this.

You need to watch this:

I particularly love the repetition of ‘What Next??’ And of course, ‘Mick Dangles’. Thanks to Steve Bailey for this ‘nugget’. (Apologies).

This was fun. Even though I’m cut off towards the end, I still enjoy the sheer sincerity of the preacher, as he sits there texting away…

Remember this one?

I have no idea what I just watched

Yet another classic workplace ‘rap’ that joins the hallowed ranks of this and this… and this.

S-s-s-sourcing, sourcing… Ugh! Drown me now.

Thanks Neil Gregory for this h-h-horror.

A terrifying song for 2015

by Robert Popper on January 5, 2015 · 3 comments

I have no idea how to describe this song. A terrifying ode from the future? Something penned by the ghost of an alien? Anyway, it’s totally brilliant. Ahh, if only this could have been the New Year Number One.

His Xmas record is even more terrifying. Great find, Jonathan Hart.
