RIP Bob. A grest entertainer.

Its hard to believe that 9 years ago, i was 30.
Its hard to believe that 9 years ago, i wasnt a parent.
Its hard to believe that 9 years ago, i was 2 stone heavier and in much better shape.
Its hard to believe that 9 years ago, i was less skint, had more prospects and had 9 more years life left in me....

But hey shit!..... C'est la vie

I was bored and decided to update my signature but i couldnt think of anything to put, so i decided to just put Bollocks!

He never made me laugh, bit of a problem for a comedian :rofl:

Good game show host though.

Stan Boardman remarked on Bob Monkhouse's joke book being stolen, "How would you know it was a joke book" :rofl:

He was a characater, but I also never really found him funny, in much the same way as I don't find Bruce Forsythe funny

Wonder what he's doing these days :chin:

I have it on good authority that Monkhouse once played the 'Do you know who I am' card when showing up at an A&E with a minor injury.

paint your wagons and burn your banker, coz the twisted circus is coming to town and there ain't no safety net under the high wire.

He was a damned sight funnier than 95% of the so-called comedians they have on TV nowadays. I sometimes tune in to these stand-up comedians and the audience are laughing their heads off - usually when the 'comic' says 'fuck' or summat. Leave me cold. Great for the bank balance if you can get away with it though.

Monkhouse used to have some proper jokes.

Though I hadn't got the date of his demise in my diary. :)

I get annoyed at comedians who tell a decent joke, deliver the punchline, and then ruin it by 'explaining' the joke by either miming or describing the scenario. ARRRGHHHH!!!!

I like the one Bob did about how gerbils have sex like 29 times every day or whatever.. (lucky bastard), but a gerbil has a shorter lifespan so actually when you work it out, the gerbil is only having sex about.. once a week.

Lucky bastard :D
