Saw him perform in Londons eastend around 1979 - very underrated the crowd used to chant baldy bastard at him for some reason, think it was a popular joke in his act funny man. Think he retired and went into property development

Underrated English standup from the eighties - went to the USA and disappeared off the scene. Known for his notorious "c of c " routine - what happened to him?

116 Tom O'Connor
117 Spike Milligan

And, "I speak Esperanto like a native". So funny.
