Must say I never found him funny. Like Norman Wisdom, I was merely irritated by him.

Agreed. Physical comedy is a very subjective taste.

Agree, not the biggest fan of OTT slapstick and rubber face sillyness. He was great in some serious roles too though, like Arizona Dream and The King of Comedy.

Ironically, a far better serious actor than a 'comedian'.
