    Funniest? ....none of those 10 are or were funny. Kick start was about trails riding and that was only funny when someone fell off a bashed their skull against the side of an oil barrel. That did'nt happen often though.
    What about "They thinks its all over" and A question of sport?

    I used to enjoy Kick Start and Kabbadi the rest were/are just boring - only funny if you are amused by watching paint dry.

    Come to think of it that's probably funnier than Michael Barrymore.

    Don't know about funny shows but Uday Joshi (presenter on ESPN Sport shows) has the funniest accent. He must have been taught English by a guy from Delhi living in Newcastle.
