World’s Funniest Person

Today we read the following headline: The World’s Funniest Man Unmasked.

Ross and John were surprised to see it was accompanied by a picture of Sacha Baron Cohen.

You know, the guy responsible for Borat (very nice) and Ali G Indahouse.  

He’s good. But not worthy of the titles of world’s funniest, we reckon.

Ross went as far as saying there was ‘not a prospect on earth’ that he was the funniest man.

So, we asked our listeners to help out with the list.

Listen here to the talkback segment: 

Here’s our full list.
