A great comedy sketch needs a few simple ingredients to make me laugh. Firstly, a liberal serving of cheese - over lots of corn. Mix it with effortless acting and sprinkle with comic timing and you have the makings of a classic - all that's needed to finish it off is a cracking punchline ... four candles anyone?
My sense of humour was nurtured by the likes of Tommy Cooper, The Two Ronnies and Morcambe and Wise - very end of the Pier showtime (without the rude bits) and I'll take any opportunity to grab a laugh with a well-placed pun.
Imagine my joy then when faced with a Quiz last week where, instead of testing on questions cricket or the spin-bowling of politics, all that was required was to supply the punchline to a list of jokes... I was in my element!
And guess who won first prize... Who's laughing now then eh?
I am now the proud owner of a digital photo frame... Why did the picture go to prison? Because it was framed...
