Jeremy Vine's brother Tim really is a witty man. (Sack Marcus and Mitch and bring in Tim, Radio 4!)
Here's one of his jokes:
Burglars have become very clever recently. Just last night my wife turned to me in the middle of the night and said, "Wake up! There's somebody downstairs!" So I got out of bed and quietly checked every room.
Suddenly I realized that I don't have a wife.
Got to be a story in why the same family produce a funny, decent bloke like Tim...and a Lance Armstrong lite lefty like Jeremy.ReplyDelete
I reckon that Jezza turned into a twerp after too many nights in the Hacienda as a student...typical Joy Division fake in a black long coat worrying about the Hulme Estate that he`d be photoed by-but never actually dare to live in.
I can definitely see Jeremy Vine as one of those emo student faux anarchists in high school and at Durham, the kind even we classical music and Star Trek nerds would beat up for being effete and lame.ReplyDelete
I don't find Tim Vine funny at all. But he's not as annoying as Jeremy. I just watched the latest Eggheads and as usual he displayed appalling ignorance. He knows his politics, of course, and his '80s and '90s music (and more contemporary stuff, the benefit of being host of a music radio show), but he's really bad on a lot of things. He should just be quiet sometimes and not let on how limited his knowledge is. Maybe he's faking it, but if so he's an excellent actor.
