I think Jim Bowen on Newsnight on Monday night got it right - Manning was a different era, but was he really that different from the hilariously unfunny Little Britain, that talentless twat Jimmy Carr or even some of the more nearer the mark episodes of Extras, which I've found thoroughly unpleasant in places?


It's a good question but there might be an answer in his longevity. The others will get found out sooner or later - they don't have the talent to keep going once the novelty value's worn off (mind you, Jimmy Carr wore off first time I came across him). Manning had a career lasting half a century despite his limited repertoire because of who he appealed to and how.
