Oh dear - you are confusing "adult" with "sophisticated" - but I will join you in expressing a state of continual disappointment at the puerility of modern comedians.PeteJ wrote:When they announce that the next programme contains adult humour and as always the humour turns out to be at the level of a primary school playground. Adult humour is clearly not a talent not many modern TV comedians possess.
Occasionally I have tuned in to "Live at the Apollo" (UK) where it would seem that all the performers have attended the same school of misdirection, attempting to disguise their lack of wit through exaggerated mannerism, amateur level mimicry and unwarranted expletives. Another strategy is to describe "real" situations in completely unrealistic terms whilst inveigling the audience to complicit agreement in the "hilarious" fantasy. I can only imagine that the alcohol for sale there is laced with something.
It is surprisingly easy to fail to laugh throughout a complete show.
