This is a normal post Never "got" him
I've discovered a few things "late" - only heard about Jake Thackray this summer, can't believe I'd never heard of him before and think he's great, for instance.

But I'd heard tell of Ivor Cutler as some peerless genius of comedy, spoken of in hushed tones by people whose opinion I'd expect to agree with. And then, eventually, thanks to Youtube, I was able to see and hear him. And be baffled and disappointed. Comedy is obviously subjective, so I'm not being so crass as to say "he's not funny". It's just that, given who'd said he was, I *expected* to think he was. And I don't. It's probably me. /shrug/
