Harry Worth

Categories: Humour, TV & Radio

Comedian. Born Yorkshire (Wikipedia has the year as 1917). Had a TV show in the 1960s. Died Hertfordshire. We have never met any one who finds him remotely funny.

2022: Correction - we've been contacted by someone saying they found him very funny. So perhaps 'marmite' applies?
