I don't care if they are Palace Fans, but I can't stand Ronnie Corbett, Jo Bland or Eddie Izzard.

One comedian who is a Palace fan I do like is Roger De Courcey. Him and his Nookie the bear had me in stitches when I saw them in Maidenhead

I think he does most of his work writing and producing etc. these days Jim.

I loved Tommy by the way.

Since this thread was created I haven't been able to get out of my head the fact this poor bloke died on live TV with people laughing at him. The best of worst way to go for a comedian, I really don't know.

yes dave allen was very funny ,but just saw a clip of him on " it was all right in the 70s " where he saves a drowning unconscious girl in a swimming pool then takes her in the cubicle and basically sexually assaults her , all very bizarre

 


interviewer " iggy , do you think you influenced anybody?"

Comedy often ages really badly. Take Hale and Pace for example.

I know right, I used to work when it was on, so I had to record it and watch it the following day, by which point it was no longer funny...

I love Tommy Cooper. There is just something about his whole 'anarchic' performance of 's**t magic and haphazard quick fire jokes', that is just pure magic. Him and Bob Monkhouse, were probably among the best of the old timer UK stand up solo comedy acts (Bernard Manning would be my third choice - Much maligned but very talented).

I think as well he was one of those few comedians who could make a show look like it wasn't rehearsed at all and entirely improvised (and thus more personal - apparently he once did 52 shows in one week which is impressive in anyone's book).

For someone who was actually a respected and talented magician, I don't think I've ever really seen him do a 'proper' magic trick, only his farce of magic tricks.


Manning was a superb comedian.

Quote Pussay Patrol at 29 Oct 2015 11.38am

People refer to him as a comedy genius but I don't get him. Whenever they show old clips I don't get anything he does in his routine, his form of comedy or anything. There's alot of old comedians who I don't find that funny but I still get their appeal, like Hancock, Milligan, Frankie Howard, Peter Cook etc. But Cooper? Just don't find him remotely funny in any way?


Says more about you than it does about Tommy Cooper et al.

 


Cynic or realist? It's a fine line!

Les Dawson.....
Now he was genius in so many ways but his piano playing was amazing.
I loved TC and still rate the movie he made with Milligan (The Plank) as an all-time favourite.

My list of top laughter makers -in no order whatsoever- is:
Milligan, Cooper, Sykes, Dickie Henderson, Jasper Carrott, Frankie Boyle, Mark Steele, Johnny Vegas, Bob Newheart, Charlie Drake, Rick Mayall.
Probably a good few that I should have added but .....
