EDIT: It turns out people are also unsure of whether or not TJ called a footballer-turned-commentator a dickhead:
The clip is here if you want to decide for yourself if he said "dickhead" or "take care" at circa 0:25 seconds:
Sigh... At least it is something to do while we wait for a celeb to die...

He seems to have been the 'go to' Welshman, appearing in How Green Was My Valley, The Englishman who went up a hill..., Stella as well as many staples of British TV, Coronation St, Z Cars, Open All Hours, amongst others.

After a recent discussion with a fellow DLer, I went on a wikihunt for Welsh Comedians and found these two comedians who seem to be old yet going strong. Wyn Calvin and Stan Stennett.
As it stands*, all Welsh born comedians who are remotely funny seem to have either moved in their infancies to the right side, sorry, east side of Offas Dyke or had public schooling in England. (Griff Rhys Jones, Dawn French, Paul Whitehouse, Keith Allen and Terry Jones for the benefit of BC Alum who it would appear adores lists). And yes, Rob Anton de Beke Brydon is absent for a reason. He is sh*t.
* from Wiki and my personal appraisal of the wiki list of Welsh comedians. There's nothing like some good old fashioned bias in a DL post
Stan Stennett dead

I never knew Sarah Greene was Welsh. Makes sense I suppose, she's always had rugby inside of her.
You've heard that story as well? Pool table I was told. Plenty of action at the baulk end...
