It's not straight comedy, it's polemic, with plenty of irony and satire. Therefore lots of people don't get it.

Sometimes I think you have to be English to get irony - but then I remember the Simpsons!

For me, his cheerful rants are like a breath of fresh air. I think it is because he takes what is otherwise an amorphous rage and fashions it into ascerbic wit. I like him and think he's very intelligent, but I suppose he's an acquired taste.
