Over acts his way through everything and isn't that funny.
I bought his book "Bigger Than Hitler, Better Than Christ" as a fan, and left it half finished thinking he had lost the plot and was desperately unfunny.
Having said that, and armed with better writers, The Young Ones was excellent and it's a shame he used a few of the gags again in bottom.
Anyone remember Rik & Ade in the short lived Hardwick House? It wasn't too bad.
Guest House Paradiso had some good moments, like the bit where he fires a pencil into Ade's eyeball.
