After exposing my sieve like memory on another thread I would like to start one about the worst comedian in history and will kick off with three examples: Charlie Chaplin The most overrated bloke in the history of light entertainment. His films should be shown only in empty rooms, and then with a cloth over the screen just in case some poor sap happens upon the room and is accidentally forced to watch the stupid antics of the moustachioed little berk. Linda Smith Her voice is so horrifyingly nasal that it should be recorded and then played into every room in Paul Gaddâs house in order to drive him to suicide. But my trump card - and I'm not entirely sure if she qualifies as a comedian but I don't care: Sandy Toksvig Seriously, what is the point of this woman? The only use for her is as ballast in a super tanker.
