Women need a little mystery, don't be too obvious

"They laughed when I said I was going to be a comedian. They're not laughing now." Bob Monkhouse

I have a hard time with some comics, Bob Monkhouse is one. His delivery just doesn't work for me.

Lenny Bruce is another, his hyper nervous style is really offputting. Reading his stuff really cracks me up, though. 

Jimmy Carr is just the opposite, I think he could crack me up reading a phone book.


  1. When I see today's comics, I miss Johnny Carson and Bob Hope.

    Steve Hoffsetter is cool. Wish he wouldn't curse so much. I'm not big on a load of cursing.

  2. Taste's a funny thing, isn't it?

    To me, Bob Monkhouse was an absolute giant, a true titan, a genuine colossus, even on things like The Golden Shot.

    Jimmy Carr I can take or leave.

    Alan Carr, on the other hand, I adore.
