Clunes: Comedy is funny ’cos... it’s just funny!
MARTIN Clunes has said comedy is simply meant to be “just funny” and not to adhere to fashion or a political context.
The actor (above), who achieved widespread fame with Men Behaving Badly in the 1990s, has denied the show was a vehicle for “laddism” and said that comedy is for its own sake.
Clunes has said that sitcoms are dead, but that if the programme were to be remade in the 21st century it would be called “People Of No Particular Gender Behaving Badly”.
The Doc Martin is set to star in upcoming comedy Warren – about a driving instructor exiled in the north of England.
Clunes has told Radio Times magazine that the comedy he makes does not have a message, and no comedy should.
He said: “Comedy is just funny. It isn’t a cure for anything.
“It’s not funny because it’s time to be funny. It’s always time to be funny.” star THERE are three golf balls sitting on the Moon PROTESTS erupted at London Fashion Week on Sunday afternoon as environmental activists called on organisers at the British Fashion Council to use its platform to tackle climate change and declare a “climate emergency”.
And on Tuesday they were all down in the dumps because German fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld carked it.
But at least there was some of the usual fun to be had at the annual frock festival – thanks to designers making models parade up and down with their tits out.
One onlooker said: “I love London Fashion Week. The birds get their tits out and they don’t look like they’re really enjoying it.
“That’s quite a turn-on.”
