There is a superb, laugh out loud post on Biased BBC about the insufferable antidote to comedy, Marcus Brigstocke. The lack of self awareness of such pontificating buffoons like Brigstocke is staggering. I had to lift it in its entirety for full effect, but do visit the original posts and enjoy the comments…
My Life in Travel: Marcus Brigstocke, comedian
I went to the Maldives the year before last… I’ve also had some of my happiest holidays in Mallorca with family and friends. It’s a very beautiful island. We stay in great place called Camp de Mar near Andratx. So it’s a toss-up between the opulent, unforgettable paradise of the Maldives and calamari by the beach, waterskiing and nightclubbing in Mallorca
What have you learnt from your travels?
I have learnt that I am incapable of packing the right amount of clothing, probably because I start 10 minutes before I’m supposed to leave; and that I truly hate airports. I rarely fly, for environmental reasons more than anything else.
Where has seduced you?
I went to China for a brief working visit and I thought that Shanghai was interesting, but Beijing totally grabbed me
Worst travel experience?
My son, sister, niece and I were sea kayaking in Mexico and got caught in a rip tide
A resort hotel in Varadero, Cuba.
I have never been to India.
New York. It has great restaurants and is a part of the US that you can enjoy as a liberal Brit.
Marcus Brigstocke will be performing at Altitude at Volvo Snowbombing from 4-9 April in Mayrhofen, Austria
Perhaps he is merely in search of an audience that finds him funny?
