Savage Eye can't see funny side of TV licence

Like many people who have taken an interest in Irish comedy over the years, I have a longdeveloped aversion to David McSavage.
A squawking, unpleasant sort of chap who seemed to confuse abusing baffled passers-by with edgy humour, this scion of a Dublin political dynasty - his real name is David Andrews - always held himself with the arrogance of his class, even when he was pretending to be a radical outsider too dangerous for the comedy establishment.
The truth was that he just wasn't very funny.
