Kenny Everett – Heroes of Comedy.

He did the most amazing skits with or without the real people.

When I lived in England I loved to watch Kenny he was so funny and when ever I felt blue I would watch Kenny and his guests like David Bowie and Rob Stewart and when he died I really mourned as though he was a real friend.

and

He started out as a DJ on the radio then started making his shows as well because he was so funny on the radio.

Oh when I look at this skit I think of Trump don’t know why?

Billy Connally just could not keep it together and no wonder!

Laughter makes the world go round. I hope he made you laugh we need it.
