THE North-South divide is no laughing matter – or maybe it is. A study by The Beano comic of 50 of our comedians, some now dead, has found they are twice as likely to be northerners as southerners.
So we asked YOU to vote online for who are the funniest folk in a series of match-ups. Overall, the North wins with 63 per cent of the vote – including the late Liverpudlian Ken Dodd just edging London’s David Walliams, by 51 per cent to 49 per cent. Here, we have more results, with the North in green and South in red.
