Quote from: Ballad of Ballard Berkley on December 22, 2012, 03:16:49 PMIt's quite staggering that Syd Little was once employed as a professional comedian. He makes Eddie Large - who, make no mistake, was a spectacularly unfunny cunt at the best of times - look like an explosive comic firecracker by comparison; which was, I suppose, the point as far as Eddie was concerned. Even as a kid, I could never understand what the point of Syd was. Beyond looking vaguely annoyed at Eddie's "antics" - and he couldn't even do that with any discernible trace of presence or timing - he contributed absolutely nothing to the act. As others have said, he was just a mute, charisma-free sounding board for some terrible impressions and piss-weak gags.WHAT IS POINT SYD?
Quote from: Brundle-Fly on December 22, 2012, 04:43:30 PMZoom forward to around the 41 minute mark for the last crosstalk routine. Eddie does impressions of these new pop bands Splodgenessabounds and Madness.
Quote from: Gulftastic on December 22, 2012, 04:55:35 PMOne thing I always kind of admired L & L for was their complete lack of bitterness when their time in the sun was over. Other comedians of that era moaned on about 'so-called alternative' comedy, and how comedy was much better in their day when they could no longer get a prime time slot. I think L & L realised they were lucky to have got away with it for so long, and just left it at that.
Quote from: Gulftastic on December 22, 2012, 04:43:26 PMSadly, we'll never know for sure how good he was. If only Eddie had let him finish playing his new song for us each week, instead of coming onstage and titting about as Deputy Dawg or Cliff Richard.
Quote from: biggytitbo on December 22, 2012, 05:02:39 PMI remember when Eddie Large was on the Weakest Link and he came across as a sad husk of a man, deadened by what the last 2 decades had done to him. He just accepted all of Anne's crap insults with the resignation of a man who would happily have been euthanised right there and then.

Syd might have revealed himself to be a musical genius.

Quote from: Chriddof on December 22, 2012, 09:08:57 PMThe best part of it is that girl's probably never heard of Bobby Davro either.
