I don't know whether otherrats like Rhod Gilbert
He makes the most deplorable noise.
In what way?
His voice is ugly. And he seems to believe, as do many modern
comedians, that ranting is comedic.
Well said. Well, I don't (AFAIK) know Rhod Gilbert, but I agree with the
Where it's just endless repetition (usually with shouting), that is;
much the same, to my ears, as endless bad language just for its own
shock value (which diminishes with overuse anyway).
Marcus Brigstocke I consider _an_ (not necessarily the) exception to
ranting: his rants are reasoned, and not shouty. And Billy Connolly for
swearing: he (despite what many think) _doesn't_ do it a lot, which
makes it more effective when he does. In both of these examples, I think
the underlying _intelligence_ is the important thing. (And intelligence
is far from the same thing as education! Those two illustrate that
difference very well; BC did not have the benefit of an education [I
think MB probably did], but is IMO extremely intelligent.)
YMMV: humour is very variable/personal. (I should try some Rhod Gilbert,
