danensis Who is the Funniest Folk Act in the UK? (101* d) RE: Who is the Funniest Folk Act in the UK? 28 Apr 07


Many years ago I saw Mike Harding at a theatre in Oldham. He started at half past seven, had a quick break about quarter past nine, and carried on until after eleven. At that stage he went off the side of the stage, negotiated with the caretaker, and said that if we promised to get out quick he could do another half an hour. We never stopped laughing from the moment he started till we left at the end. In that time I doubt he did more than half a dozen songs, the rest was stories.

As for Jasper Carrot, I remember himgetting booed off stage at St George's Hall in Liverpool 'cos the audience were waiting for Harvey Andrews. When I saw Carrot twenty years later he was still doing the same "letters to Insurance companies" gags that he was then.
