Humor is in the eye of the beholder I guess. I bailed after 30 seconds. Not enough Eddy Izzard for me,

This guy is funnier! He had one on Volvo drivers, but I couldn't find it. I guess he got too much heat and removed it. June

I offered Mr. Regular a chance to drive my T5M so he could get the true turbo manual experience, but he never responded.

In other words it's entertainment? That's fine with me, as long as it's entertaining, that's more than enough. But I also find his pieces to be very informative. Lots of context on what was happening with cars at the time the car he's reviewing was released, lots of info on how it did, the technology at the time, much misc. I'm not looking for a spec sheet. But again you need to look past the fart jokes, and his humor definitely isn't for everyone.
