    Yeah, the bloke's a pretentious bell-end and no mistake. And don't you just love how he pontificates self-importantly about "global warming" while flying his favourite hat round the world in first class?

    Choosing a poncy stage name like "Bono" (or "The Edge" or "Sting") is the mark of a complete twat in my book.

    I'm usually a lover not a fighter. But if he were to walk into my local, I'd quite cheerfully stamp on his sunglasses.

    :D Glasgow audiences famously don't take prisoners, particularly comics. An old favourite story amongst many is.... (as recounted by Billy Connelly and Johnie Beattie)
    Mike and Bernie Winters joined the ranks of those crucified at the Glasgow Empire in their debut performance.
    Their act always started with Mike springing on to the stage to play a zippy number on his clarinet. After a couple of minutes, Bernie's cheeky face would peek through the centre curtains.
    But from the Glasgow audience came the cry "Christ, there's two of 'em".
    The reason is simple EVERYONE in Glasgow thinks they're a comic. Of course it's not just Glasgow don't forget Liverpool and Newcastle.
    Kirk Douglas´s lesser-known son Eric was in the UK a few years ago, trying to make his mark in stand-up comedy. He was going down badly, so grabbed the mic and said: "What´s wrong with you? Don´t you know who I am? I´m the son of Kirk Douglas!"
    There was absolute silence, then someone at the back stood up and said: "No - I´m the son of Kirk Douglas!"
    Followed within seconds by the whole audience .

    I saw Jimmy Carr life quite a while ago and he told a joke saying the exact same thing as the alleged Scotsman.

    Yes Alex, I have a feeling that it's one of those urban myths, and I'd heard it before as well. Still funny though - and in Bono's case also quite believable.

    Good to meet you at Euro by the way!

    Ah, I remember that night with a passion. I broke the heal on my 2.5 inch cuban boot and had to walk home with one foot on the pavement and the other in the gutter. It was a tad like the Jocks invasion of Euromilitaire 2012:eek:
