It’s the way I tell ‘em!

Comedian Frank Carson died yesterday aged 85. Frank, with his quick fire wisecracks, first came to prominence when he won Opportunity Knocks and he became a household name in the ‘70s on ITV’s The Comedians and Who Do You Do?.

Pull the Other One - Radio Times Jan 1987 
Mainly on TV Frank made occasional guest appearances on radio including being one of the regular participants in four series of the Radio 2 panel game Pull the Other One - kind of Does the Team Think meets Mock the Week but with the jokes loosely based on “daft but true” news stories. Alongside Frank was chairman David Frost and the other regular Ken Dodd. In this, the first ever edition of the series, they are joined by Leslie Crowther.   

This programme was first broadcast on 22 January 1987.

Funnily enough I seem to remember the Grumbleweeds featuring a Frank Carson impersonation on their radio series, along the lines of...

"Did You hear the one?.."
"I Did!"
"I'll Tell You Another One Then..."
