Let's start with John Cooper Clarke. His appearance, voice and poetry are all irritating.

Well I have a neighbour in that category but I will not name him. Not famous I may say.

Some ridiculous hyper-babbling idiot who I heard on Just a Minute, perhaps twenty years ago. Screech, warble, silly voice, self-satisfied snigger, more silly voices. But hey, the audience seemed to love him. He turned out to be Graham Norton. Oh well. :|

And that other professional Yorkshireman, Sir Geoffrey Boycott.

Equally irritating but in a completely different way.

Ah yes I wondered about that despite their accents both being identical really irritating northern.

Decided to post anyway to be really irritating myself too, like it says in the thread title :lol:

John Cooper Clarke
seen him several times, including in a pub stood next to him
Top bloke, with great wisdom;

I’ll tell you now and I’ll tell you firmly
I don’t never want to go to Burnley
What they do there don’t concern me
Why would anybody make the journey?

Do you have to like a person to appreciate their work, art, or opinions?
I'm x-ref'ing back to John Cooper Clark, should I dismiss him before seeing him due solely to alleged 'whiney northern delivery'? What about David Hockney then?

When it comes to celebrities my rule of thumb is this. If they stick to their knitting then all is well. You have to suffer to produce good art, and that implies personality defects.

But when a celebrity decides to use a platform of fame to lecture us on politics, then there is no place in hell too bad for them.

Paddy Mcguiness fairly tweaks my nips.

Leo, you should really rename this thread to something like 'Dinner guests that you would happily serve 'Japanese Puffer Fish to'

Well, in that case, you must really really hate Donald Trump!

My vote for irritating people -Ant and Dec. There must be more to them than mindlessly bouncy cheeriness, but if so, I've never seen it. Also, anyone who calls Kanye West a genius.

I might agree if you throw in there Bono, Sting, Geldof, Kaepernick and a vast array of self-styled celebrities who think that we care about their ideological views just because they might have some talent in a very narrow discipline.

At least Trump was elected, which none of the poseurs I cited were.

If the US elected by the popular vote do you not think that maybe Trump would have campaigned very differently?

Do you think that he could have done it any other way than using his platform of fame to lecture on politics?
As (he was) a reality tv star, sex pest and congenital liar I can't see what other avenues he had back then
obviously now he's got some other tools to play with, but back then he was famous for being a bit famous and used it to great effect
