I pointed out that the kind of people Brigstocke tends to take glee in ridiculing are - from what I've seen - people who have suffered far larger moral lapses than his, and despite his own nasty, selfish activities, I don't think 'but you cheated on your wife' would be much of a retort for them.

You said "We aren't talking about rapists, murderers or corrupt bankers."

My point is, yes we are, because those are the type of people Brigstocke tends to ridicule, not other comedians.
Although Brigstocke did have a bit in his last tour (may still be ongoing) about Jimmy Carr and his tax avoidance, saying all he and his comedian friends have long known he was a c**t. So in that particular case, "but you cheated on your wife" may be a good retort.
