This day in UK History.

Sadly, on this day in 1993, Manchester born comedian Les Dawson died.  He is remembered for his deadpan style, grumpy on stage personality and jokes about his mother-in-law and wife.

Examples:  ‘I just got back from a pleasure trip.  I took my mother-in-law to the airport.’

I said to the chemist, ‘Can I have some sleeping pills for the wife?’  He said, ‘Why?’  I said, ‘She keeps waking up.’

I’m not saying the wife’s ugly, but last christmas she stood under the mistletoe waiting for someone to kiss and she was still there at lent. In fact she went to see that film the Elephant Man and the audience thought she was making a personal appearance.
