Comedy shouldn't be about hitting the gym!

Dara O Briain baffled by the younger generation...

comedyYoung comedians are much more concerned about hitting the gym than hitting the booze, Dara O Brian said.

The 50-year-old Mock The Week hosts reckons the stand-ups obsessed with looking good are missing out on some of the perks of the job.

Speaking on Alan Carr’s Life’s A Beach podcast about the younger generation keen on looking ‘ripped’, O Briain said: ‘You go, "No lads that isn’t what this is about. Surely it’s about stumbling back at five in the morning.’

Carr, 45,  agreed: ‘These young comedians are at the gym at 7am. We’re just coming in with red wine lips and it’s like, "Oh, what did I do last night? Who did I get off with?"’
