No offence taken!
As I am on the other side of the Atlantic, this comedian was new to me.
I find him humorous, but maybe only in small batches.
I have two pairs of tights, one athletic style for cold weather walks.
The other more sheer from G Leiberman (Glamory Thermoman 100 Footless Tights with Fly) which I have only worn once, and no family has seen. Bought more as an experiment. Need to get the nerve to wear more in public.
But I do generally agree that tights get in the way of skirts and prefer not to wear

The skit about tights is also funny.
I think tights are terrific I don't wear long skirts and it would be impossible to go out in the colder weather without them
I have thin and thick tights This past Friday I wore tights as part of my outfit to the VA clinic. I actually had a lady on staff tell me that she liked my tights.
They may be a slight pain when you have natures call but other than that they make wearing a skirt much easier.
With a pair of tights on you don't have as much of a chance of flashing someone.
You say you wear socks that's great but quite often they don't stay up and again they are not as warm as tights which stay up.

I agree.Fred in Skirts wrote: ↑Fri Jan 03, 2020 4:01 pmWhy would you really want to wear tights or panty hose any way????
To me they are worse than trousers and shorts. I love skirts because of the comfort so why put on very uncomfortable tights etc.
Socks, thigh high nylons OK but not tights or panty hose.
I think McIntyre is like marmite and I'm also not a fan. I agree that he is his own biggest fan. On the other hand Billy Connolly is funny If you want to make fun of Scots at least have a Scottish accent not the far back English one he has. Incidentally I Am English before we get into it any furtherRay wrote: ↑Fri Jan 03, 2020 9:25 amSadly, I find McIntyre smug, knowing, and ultimately not that funny. His little “I think I’m being really funny” giggles during sketches is like nails being dragged over a blackboard to me. I really don’t like him or his humour.
That said, the tights sketch was amusing. I just think how Billy Connolly would have done this. That would have been something to see.
