That Brutal Tracey Ullman/Susan Boyle Sketch

We’ve not seen this video before, which was basically a good thing.

Comedienne, (although that’s debatable), Tracy Ullman, who has obviously studied at the Dick Van Dyke School of Accents, puts the boot into singer Susan Boyle in a sketch where she not only underlines every Scottish stereotype from Harry Lauder’s book of How To Use Staid Scottish Stereotypes For Cheap Laughs, (‘a braw bricht moonlicht nicht‘…are you f@cking serious?), but she also rips the piss out of Boyle’s fragile mental state. Because nothing is funnier than picking on that one person with mental health issues.

Our gripe isn’t really that the material and objective of this sketch is offensive it’s just really not funny…really painfully unfunny….f@cking awful in fact.

Ho Tracey! The 1920's called, they want their jokes back!
