    Derby Dead Pool 2019

    I guess Andrew Fairlie becomes my first ever hit in the DDP. A 'rejected' pick in the alt.obituaries one. Also means rejigging my planned Deathlist Cup team. I suspect I'm not the only one.

    Comics & Comedy Writers

    Admittedly, when I posted the Maureen Murphy bio, I'd not heard of her. (Upon looking at her credits, I vaguely remember her New Hollywood Squares appearance.) However, to have been booked on the Tonight Show multiple times -- particularly during the Johnny Carson era -- was of great importance to an entertainer's career in the U.S. Carson giving you 'the nod' meant you'd made it. Murphy may have been lesser known than other comedic contemporaries, but appears to have had a respectable career doing stand-up in the 80s. Conversely, Elayne Boosler is a name I recognize, having been a stand-up comedian by trade and having appeared on numerous American shows as herself, with a cross-section of credits as an actress. Alison Arngrim played 'Nellie Oleson' for eight years on 'Little House on the Prairie'. The others I don't recognize.
