    Default Just NOT funny

    Ten 'comedians/comedy act' who are simply rubbish.

    Charlie Chaplin
    Tommy Cooper
    Hale and Pace
    Romesh Ragnawhateverhisname
    Steve Martin
    Lenny Henry
    Harry Hill
    Lee Evans
    Jerry Lewis
    Abbot and Costello.

    I'll think of others but... Oh, Cheech And Chong are shite as well, but for now this lot will do.

    Humour is a very personal thing. My mother couldn't stand Monty Python but loves Benny Hill.
    I can't agree about Tommy Cooper or to a lesser extent Lenny Henry.
    Here are a few that just annoy me

    Benny Hill
    Ken Dodd
    Arthur Askey
    Michael McIntye
    Mike & Bernie Winters
    Woody Allen
    Peter Kaye

    A personal thing but I detest this lot

    David Baddiel
    Charlie Brooker
    Ben Elton (apart from the Young Ones & Blackadder, everything else is total shite)
    Nick Frost
    Ricky Gervais
    Miranda Hart
    Paul Kaye
    Nish Kumar
    Freddie Starr
    Jimmy Tarbuck
    Reg Varney
    Norman Wisdom

    When it comes to crap TV shows, most US stuff but especially Friends, these are a real pair of stinkers "Back to Life" and "Stath Lets Flats".

    There are many diseases,
    that strike people's kneeses,
    Covid19! is one by name
    It comes from the East
    Packed in bladders of yeast
    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    Apologies to Spike Milligan

    Some stinkers here but maybe Charlie Chaplin is just too dated. Cooper could be funny 'spoon...jar...jar...spoon' but Lee Evans was dreadful and just a rip-off of the equally (if not worse) Jerry Lewis.

    Looks like most of us agree:

    Michael McIntyre
    Miranda Hart

    "And coming up next on BBC1, Miranda Hart Live, where Miranda falls over on stage; for 2 hours"
    "Breakneck speed we drown ten pints of bitter"
