People are remembering this hilarious Jack Whitehall joke about Robert Mugabe

Jack Whitehall

That card Robert Mugabe is in the news again, what with his ‘chucking out’ from power in Zimbabwe looking altogether imminent (*edit* the bugger has finally gone). As such, and as his supporters wane, he must be looking to find people to help him out, and against all odds, I’ve actually found a rather notable one - comedian Jack Whitehall’s mum, no less.

Now, I’m not one for slander, so I must say that there’s no evidence of this, other than a hilarious story that Jack told in his routine a few years ago - and after this renewed interest in the Mugabe name, he’s lifted it back into the public eye. I’ll let him explain: 

And what with Jack’s dad now being a public figure, he’s responded:

Yeah right, Mike, course you didn’t, you foul-mouthed swine, you.

Here’s a clip of the ‘bit’, if you like seeing and hearing things that you’ve just read:

Robert Mugabe is yet to respond to the show of support but he’s probably got other things on his mind now, to be fair.
