Des O'Connor...
Started by: jarvo (28323)  Report abuse
A Classic...

Underrated genius. One of England's finest.

He was at Butlin's in 1959.



Still gooin'...

I think genius is stretching it a bit there jarvo. he's a bit of a singer.Not one of the best voices by a mile.

Posted by: jathbee (9027) Report abuse
He's a bore in my opinion.

Posted by: roylew (2842) Report abuse
Morecambe and wise did more for him than he did for himself nothing special but ok

Posted by: jarvo (28323)  Report abuse
A true star in every sense of the word.

He never took himself seriously; that was his charm.

A bit like me, I suppose.

Posted by: roylew (2842) Report abuse
He was a lucky man...thatís for sure

Wonder what his young wife sees in him lol.

Des is a good all round entertainer who has brought pleasure to many people.

Posted by: roylew (2842) Report abuse
Thatís all he is...nothing more...why elevate him

Posted by: jarvo (28323)  Report abuse
Why shouldn't I elevate him?

You elevate that very poor football team of yours...so, so, lucky to stay up...

Des is literally in a different league.

Now get back on the M62 and put a sock in it...

Posted by: jathbee (9027) Report abuse
It's you who should put a sock in it. Des O'connor is and was nothing but a holiday camp entertainer.

Posted by: basil brush (9964) Report abuse
If only you, and your cronies, would put a sock in it, the site would be a much better place.

Hello 👋 peepers 👀

Not too keen on Des myself, but I do like

This mon

never mind des o,connor,what about the likes of michael mcintyre and his friends,about as funny as a dose of flu and cant sing..

Posted by: jathbee (9027) Report abuse
I agree. But the post was about Des O'Connor. Jarvis claimed he was a genius, how on earth he came to that conclusion is beyond me. He had a few lucky breaks, mainly due to Morecambe and Wise and Des being the brunt of many of their jokes.

I might go in next Saturday, care to join us.

Posted by: basil brush (9964) Report abuse
Can't see that happening, though, she can't use it being a crap hole, as an excuse, for not coming in, it's got a 5 star 🌟 hygiene rating.

Posted by: lectriclegs (3221) Report abuse
Can I come, Baz?

Come in and introduce yourself, then you can say what's on your mind instead of hiding behind your keyboard and coming out with it on here

Now that sounds like a threat to me.
