Although equally racist, sexist (etc) and "un-PC" at least Manning can be genuinely funny when not resorting to such unacceptable material.

But Davidson did Big Break!

I'm not voting for either. It feels wrong.

Gonna have to be Manning. Keeping in true xenophobic tradition I'm picking the notherner over the cockney!

I hate sticking up for Manning but underneath all the nasty "humour" lies some great comic skill.

I saw a profile of him on Channel 4 once - they didnt show many clips (understandibly) but those "acceptable" bits they DID show were pretty funny - one bit where he was picking on a late comer to the show (old white bloke who was badly dressed) - he used some killer put-downs.

If only he wasnt such a cunt and realised he should drop all the prejudice. But, like Benny Hill, he'll never learn and keep going as his audience dwindles to the police only.

All in wrestling contest, Bernard would squash him.

Comedy contest, I think Davidson would just edge it.

I saw Jim Davidson being interviewed on Parky a couple of years ago, and he's actually reasonably funny underneath the "humour" somewhere.

I think they're both cunts and refuse to vote for either of them. So do my AE's
