'Remove your shirt like a gay'

WTF: Weekly Trivia File

  • Everyone has their own bucket list of things to do... but a notebook confiscated from a stag night punter at one comedy night recently provides food for thought. ‘Dip testicles in girl’s mouth and bloke’s’ was one of the items written in it, along with: ‘Get on your knees and shout “echo, echo” in a girl’s pussy’, ‘ remove your T-shirt like a gay’, ‘get up in middle of a comedy act and do star jumps’ and ‘talk like a Packi [sic] for 15mins whenever talken [sic] too [sic].’ The contents were posted on Facebook by comic Liam Mullone who concluded: ‘If anyone thinks comedy is easy, or that humanity is worth saving, this .. should disabuse them of both fallacies.’ Click here to view Exhibit A.

  • One viewer has complained to broadcast watchdog Ofcom about The Simpsons... on animal welfare grounds. We can assure the concerned party that no Spider-Pigs were hurt in the making of the programme.

  • Swedish comedian Per-Robin Gustafsson has been attacked by a man he met following his gig on Tuesday. He struck up a friendship with a couple of Goths, and moved on to a party with them – which suddenly tuned violent. ‘The party began quite nicely, but suddenly it became clear that the partners were some kind of Satanists,’ 25-year-old Gustafsson told the Aftonbladet newspaper. The stranger knocked him to the ground and ‘began to chew on my cheek like a dog’. ‘He wanted to kill me and offer me to the gods or something,’ said the comic. ‘He was really controlled and calm. That made the whole thing scarier.’ Gustafsson spent 12 hours in hospital after the ordeal, in which he suffered a fractured neck and collar bone.

  • And Britain’s own Bob Slayer was mugged following a gig in London last week, when he cut through a park near his East End home. ‘The next thing I remember is waking up the following day with a huge lump on the back of my head and feeling doolally… I assumed I had fallen over. But I had aching ribs, a sore jaw and there were marks down my back, so I thought it must have been one hell of a fall. Then, by 2 o’clock the next afternoon, I remembered that I had been beaten up by a group of youths in the park.’

  • Jim Jefferies with a heckler... and this time it’s not the comic being bashed on the head:

  • The studio audience of BBC One sitcom In With The Flynns, last night sang Happy Birthday to actor Warren Clark, who was celebrating his 65th birthday. Co-star Will Mellor presented Man City fan Clark with a personalised framed football shirt.

  • A group of comics are making the trip from London to the Edinburgh Fringe – by barge. En route, they will perform impromptu pop-up gigs near London, Oxford, Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow and Edinburgh. But details of the shows, as well as the acts taking part in the project – Tell Tales From The Riverbank – are being kept under wraps for now. All will be publicised via social media once the narrowboat sets off on June 21.
