As a comedian, I’ve died many deaths

I’m not saying my wife’s a bad cook, but she uses a smoke alarm as a timer.

Ha ha – yes, another quip from a true master of the ad-lib

Bob Monkhouse

On 12 June 2007, Monkhouse posthumously appeared on a British TV advertisement promoting awareness of prostate cancer for Male Cancer Awareness Week.  He talking about the disease seriously, interspersed with humorous asides such as “What killed me kills one man per hour in Britain. That’s even more than my wife’s cooking” – a true master of comedy if ever there was one.

The title of this post came from the prostate cancer advert
