The Wit Parade

Recently re branded TV channel, Dave (formerly UKTV), released the results of a survey last week to find out who the British public thought was the "UK's greatest wit". The winner wasn't exactly a big surprise, though numbers 4, 9 and 10 are a bit of a surprise. The highest placed female was Margaret Thatcher, who came in at number 12. I would have voted for Stephen Fry (because Clive James is Australian).

  1. Oscar Wilde

  2. Spike Milligan

  3. Stephen Fry

  4. Jeremy Clarkson

  5. Sir Winston Churchill

  6. Paul Merton

  7. Noel Coward

  8. Shakespeare

  9. Brian Clough

  10. Liam Gallagher
