Bitter, sick, twisted, curmudeonly... and hilarious, charlie brooker only speaks the disarming truth making me want to vomit with jealousy at his intelligence, wit and writing skill in the process. He is only second to Ross Noble (a stand up comedian) with his skill in the way he strings sentences together to form wierd yet perfectly understandable comparisons between that of, say, Jimmy Nail and an identikit photo made by picasso using only spuds and knuckles. See?! You or I would never be able to think of that but as soon as you read it, you picture it in your head and think, My God he's right! It's simply funny from start to finish and if you like this I urge you to watch his show Newsipe (bbc4 at 10.30) or watch old shows of his other show screenwipe on youtube, also read is articles on the Guardian website!
