Since I'm bored and watching Ronnie Corbett on tv it got me thinking..who were/are the most unfunny up their own arse comedians?
surely Jimmy Tarbuck, tom o'connor,lenny Henry should be a start. the first two being scouse twats should put them right up there? oh add john bishop to that. and just to put the cat amongst the pigeons...I never found spike milligan funny...deranged maybe.

I thought this thread was going to be having a dig at all those who have served in BAOR and BFG over the years.

Bob Carolgees was a bit of a one-spit wonder. Ben Elton's stand-up in the 80s was dire.

Oh, don't forget Cannon & Ball. ROCK ON TOMMY! No...fuck off Bobby.

Ben Elton was shit. Russell Brand looks like hepatitis personified.
I forgot about Brand, anyone that give up Katy perry needs his balls kicking.

Saw Ken Dodd on stage once. A few decent jokes started to appear about three hours in to his routine, that was about the half-way mark. By that stage I was tired, thirsty, bored and had a numb bum. Never again.

Fuck!! I'm in trouble now, rambling sid rumpo of the internet has shown up.
Sorry. I fell asleep after your bit about "watching Ronnie Corbett on TV". I now realise that you meant Lenny Henry was last funny when me dad caught prostate cancer.

rambling sid rumpo of the internet is it?

So, do all you Welsh people sing in a Male Voice Choir? Or is it just those of you who do not have a job on account of the pits closing?
