Ted Ray - Nedlo the Gypsy.

Nedlo the Gypsy, can you believe it?
Even then Ted started his comedic days in comedic ways.
Master of deadpan, lantern jaw
not a facial crack not even a guffaw.
First British comedian to appear on stage
in an ordinary lounge suit, when
Dj’s were all the rage...
eat your heart out Terry Titter.

Ted Ray the origin of ‘patter’ in Liverpool pubs today
became a King Rat doing his thing for charity
Britain’s Family Favourite Funnyman
another much loved Scouser to whom
we should 'Raise a Laugh.'
