I'm not anti Steve Wright but I just don't get this. I can't see what Steve Wright and Tim Smith are falling about laughing at.... it's just ridiculous and extremely irritating. Whoever it is, sounds like Griff Rhys Jones to me.

I don't find Ask Elvis funny either. And years back the same with Mr Angry. Is it me?

I enjoy Ask Elvis (Mitch Benn) but really despise Barry from Watford - I don't know anyone who likes him, and some people really, really, really hate the guy.

He's not played by Griff Rhys Jones though. It's someone far less talented: Alex Lowe, a jobbing actor who does a lot of Radio 4 sitcoms.

I think he's "ok" funny but then again, I really liked Mr. Angry and Sid the Manager etc... I remember liking the way Steve rattled the phone before saying "hello"..
However, I didn't like "Ask Elvis". I'm quite an Elvis fan and take offence at those stupid impersonators, Steve's guy included...

I'm gonna have to stick my head over the parapet and say I really like Barry from Watford.
Now I'm ducking back down to avoid the flak.

From 3.45 on Steve Wright's show there was an awful lot of laughter going on, but for the life of me I couldn't find anything remotely funny about what was being said.

It all a little harmless humour. Steve does seem to be creeping these people in again like he did at R1 with Mr Angry & Co.

I thought we had lost him at 2.03pm on Friday 12th Feb. There was a pause. Someone forgot to switch the studio on Laughing...... Or was that Pause For Thought for some of you? Very Happy
