“Didn’t he do well?” says everybody


Bruce Forsyth

Sir Bruce Forsyth has died at the age of 89, leading everyone to remark on a hell of a career.

The veteran entertainer had been in show business for decades, working in the golden age of Morecambe and Wise as well as whatever age of utter nonsense we live in now.

“You don’t get anything for a pair, but Bruce got a lot out of life,” confirmed entertainment correspondent, Simon Williams.

“Bruce could sing, he could dance, he could tell jokes, and he did it all with a sense of dignity, class and non-twattery that you simply don’t get from today’s entertainers, and yes I am talking about Jonathan Ross.”

Telly fan, Jay Cooper, said, “I used to love him on the generation game when he got members of the public up to try and do puppet shows with their legs and other such tomfoolery.

“Under the watch of anybody else, that would be absolute wank. But Forsyth turned it into cracking telly. Christ, he even made tap dancing look cool.

“It was always nice to see him, to see him, nice.”
