    Where do you start? I loved the old silent screen comedies, but if pushed I reckon I'd go for Hale and Pace, or the not the 9 o'clock news team.

    As I understand it, when Laurel and Hardy came over to the UK, after the war they were mobbed by tens of thousands of fans and the country had never seen anything like it. Stan Laurel had not been back to England since before the first world war when he left to go to America, when they went to his birthplace in Cumbria huge crowds greeted them. They were truly beloved of the nation.

    I was a real fan of the Carry On shows. Still like to watch the oldies from time to time.

    I was not really a fan of Jasper Carrot in his popular period, but I have since come to like his observations on life.

    I've got a double CD of one of his more recent shows - it always has me in hysterics.
