I saw a charity appeal in the Guardian the other day, and it read “Little Zuki has to walk 13 miles a day just to fetch water”. And I couldn’t help thinking, she should move.
Something slightly different now, with a current comedian specialising in a more sombre humour with a deadpan delivery.
Jimmy Carr seems to appear everywhere at the moment; both TV and radio. His style of comedy, of which there are many examples (some we will see more of in this blog no doubt), are similar to the quote above – a pretty ordinary observation or comment with a sharp witty comment appended that takes just a second to hit home. Very clever and quite an endearing comedy style.
