I think he's trying to prevent himself from going onto the deathlist

Nah Mugabe is alright.The poster not the dictator that is.I mean starting a thread for a household name who is lonely depressed overweight chainsmoking nearly 74 years old and also has had very serious heart problems is hardly inappropiate!

Likely just an accident, like Shaun's double post. Both threads have the same timestamp and text, so let's give the forum newbie the benefit of the doubt.

I am not a newbie, I was posting on this forum and stealing farms when you were still going out with cheerleaders

He says you dated cheerleaders, I'd take that as a compliment myself.

Still watching Question Time, but caught sight of this.

 

I will say that by the time I was seeing Freddie Starr in the 1970s, he was already old hat. His impressions were out of date and his jokes were a bit grating even for the time. I will also say, however that he was a master of slapstick, and should have concentrated on that.

 

Very much marmite cult. In any event, an institution, so RIP.

Seen him in Blackpool a number of years ago. Hadn't lost it, still very funny at the time.

The likes of Starr, Manning and Jim Davidson get crucified in todays PC bullshit world for their acts in the 70s and 80s, yet most modern day comedians seem to get away with the same act for some reason.

Not sure I'd bracket Starr with Manning and Davidson. Starr was from a music background initially, so was exposed to a wider circle of people and he was clever not to push the rather blatant narrow "comedy" of the latter two.

 

Interestingly, if you watch episodes of things like The Two Ronnies (oh how beloved they were!) from the early 1970s, the open sexism and racism would take your breath away today. Times were different, really different.

Not a surprise, but he seemed a bit tortured over recent years. RIP

Given how high-profile he once was I'm surprised how low profile the reports are. Main item on BBC Entertainment page at the moment but didn't hear it in the radio news headlines. Bit harsh IMHO
