Following news about Lee Evans record breaking attempt to play in front of more than 15,000 people, squeaky voiced yokel Joe Pasquale has said: 'I see your 15,000, and I raise you 15,001'.
The cuddly star of such shows as 'Des O'Connor's Laughter Show' 'Tell Me, is this your Sheep?' and comedy knockabout 'Spun three times in a room full of spades,drawing pins, and rakes pointing in the wrong way' is to launch his attempt in 2009, giving him time to rent a venue, and to advertise it fully.
He also plans to do thirty shows, to reach the audience. It is felt that this might be leading to disqualification, but we did not really want to tread on a man's dreams. We leave that type of Barbarinism to Simon Cowell.
