Comedic Genius

No!  Not me clearly … but Chic Murray, a droll Scot, who died 25 years ago.  There is no doubt that Murray’s style is very dated now but I still laugh – probably because I’m dated too.

I remember Billy Connolly telling this Murray joke  - may have been on Parkie:

“Woman to man in street... ‘Did you fall?’

’No, I was trying to break a bar of chocolate in my back pocket.’  “

If that hasn’t put you off then here are 3 videos.  The first is of Murray himself in 1984.

The other two are of comedian Doug Healy in his Edinburgh Fringe show about Murray.  [Note: In these 2 clips the video is way out of sync with the sound.] 

Classic comedy indeed!
