Max Bygraves RIP

Postby harryfaversham » Sat Sep 01, 2012 1:37 pm

The legendary comedian and variety performer passed away peacefully in his sleep at his home in Queensland, Australia last night after a long battle with Alzheimer's. Thoughts and prayers to his family and friends.

Does anybody remeber Max hosting an episode of Family Fortunes, where the contestant got such stage fright that the only answer he could give to any question was Turkey ?
