Aaron McIlroy, how do you take your coffee?
i hated Bill Cosby when i was growing up, he never made me laugh, i used to watch everyone else watching him and laughing at his “funny expressions” and i just couldnt understand it. But Monty Python, now that shit is funny. It was funny 25 years ago and its funny now. as for south afircans, we are funny buggers. we should have a surplus of comedians and yet we only have a hand full. why? we are just as witty as Micheal Palin and just as sarcastic as John Cleese. it makes no sense. but then you see a guy like our first official “how do you take your coffee” guy, Aaron McIlroy. with all my exposure to Monty Python, Faulty towers & life of Brian it takes a lot to make me laugh. this guy makes me laugh from my gut. i even met him once after a show and you just want to say “bru the shows over”. his wife must laugh all day.
drum roll…our first official “how do you take your coffee bru” guy is Aaron McIlroy.
