Ok didn't really know who he was.
But why would you expect a comedian from 60 yrs ago to be funny now?
No comedy ages well.
Read some jokes from the 1800s.
Nothing funny today will be funny in 20 yrs time.
Why are some people obsessed with people or shows from a time that was probably decades before they were born?
I was born in 1986, he was as regular a feature of my childhood as Mr. Bean or Billy Connolly. It's true that he was dead by then, but his comedy always seemed to be on the telly. How old are you?
