British comedian Bernard Manning dies

Controversial British comedian Bernard Manning died today. Branded a racist through out his life, the star comedian was banned from many clubs in Britain. His death hasn`t settled matters…people are still arguing if racist comments can be funny.

The good thing about a comedian dying is that you get other comedians coming out of the closet and delivering eulogies.

Here is what fellow comedian Frank Carson had to say to BBC, “He was a wonderful man. If I had to write his gravestone I’d put: Here lies Bernard Manning, comedian, who died 76 years old.”

“Underneath that I’d put: What a pity, he had a booking next week.”
