Norman "dodgy microphone" Collier
I think he did a bit about winding a car window up and down too - though this is a variation on the dodgy microphone bit.
Also it might have been someone else.

You are being too generous by affording him credit for having ONE joke.

There was at least a whole year in history when there was literally nothing on television except a stand-up comedian pointing out that Alanis Morissette doesn't know what the word "ironic" means.  "NO THAT'S NOT WHAT IT MEANS ALANIS; THE THING WITH THE FORKS WOULD ONLY BE IRONIC IF THIS."  Was it Ross Noble?  Anyway whoever it was, that observation is all he is forever.

Ed Byrne, wasn't it?

Yes. I once paraphrased it in a message to Richard Bacon on his evening 5Live show where he was confusing irony and sarcasm. He described it as "the best contribution of the evening".

The punch line of the routine that it is actually the most ironic song ever written as it is about irony but contains no valid examples of irony always amused me.

One joke comedians that I like? Is Jon Glaser always playing a version of the same character in everything he is in? Its a very funny character and he's got plenty of lines but its all a version of the same thing.

In fairness to Ed Byrne, he had two jokes. There was also the toilet paper routine.

I would have gone for Stewart 'mixed ability room' Lee.

Also some posters seem to be missing the thrust of the thread title. Well done you.
