It was a night of Comedy on Channel 4 last night. It kicked with the British Comedy Awards hosted by Jonathan Ross who was in a fairly irreverent mood, but that was just a taster. The main course was what followed a screening of Micky Flanagan’s Out Out Tour.
I love Micky Flanagan I find him hilarious on ’8 out of Ten Cats’, ‘Mock The Week’ and ‘Live At The Apollo’. So I was really looking forward to this show on Channel 4 and it did not disappoint .
The cockney swagger and patter was all there. The observations on what it is like being a true cockney, or at least what the rest of the world likes to think being a cockney would be like, were spot on.
There were new jokes I hadn’t heard before and the old favourites like popping out, going out and going ‘out out’ as well as the legendary mix up between a Cockney’s House and a New Yorker’s arse.
It is not on 4OD but is on repeat on several of the Channel 4′s sister channels

And if you can’t wait. Here is a taster of the subtle difference between popping out, going out and going ’out out’ cockney style.
