The United Kingdom is a funny old place.

It’s interesting to note that people in the South West – where I live – think they’re the least funniest in the country. Or are we just more modest?
And in case you were wondering… yes, I’m working on a sitcom script.
In defence of Bristol et al., some fantastic comedians have originated here, including Lee Evans, Russell Howard and Stephen Merchant.
Oh, and one in ten people don’t think they make anyone laugh. At all. A bit of self-confidence should be on their Christmas lists.
