Slap and tickle in Blackpool - nudge nudge

Jump to last reply

Blackpool has recently launched its comedy slab - a concrete carpet of jokes and innuendo. Like an overblown holiday postcard, it features many Northern comedians (should I say Lancashire comedians) and a few from elsewhere (not many from Yorkshire).
The slab features many one liners as well as longer jokes and some of the catch-phrases of famous comedians.
You can spend many a merry half hour reading such classics as:
“My wife is so cross-eyed that when she cries, tears run down her back”
“I take my wife everywhere, saves having to kiss her goodbye”;
And a scene from one of the carry ons:
Charles Hawtrey as Julius Caesar after being stabbed declares: “Infamy, infamy they all have it in for me”.
Well worth a visit.
