    Andy Zaltzman

    Does anyone else listen to him? I have it subscribed on my iPhone and it's usually very funny.

    Can't say I've ever listened, but I have read a few pieces of his and it's usually pretty witty stuff.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Both his columns and his podcasts are hilarious.

    International cricket these days is just begging for that kind of satire.

    I find a lot of his stuff on cricinfo to be distinctly unfunny. Having said that, he has moments of brilliance on the bugle podcast.

    Yeah, we've had a few threads on him. He's pretty funny. I haven't found many cricket writers like him.

    Has a real passion for the game and for comedy. That helps, I guess.

    Even in the ones that aren't too funny, he sometimes makes pretty decent observations of the game.. Always love to read his stuff.

    Saw him on 8 out of 10 Cats. Suffice to say his written stuff is funnier.

    Looks like the bastard child of Mick Hucknall & Art Garfunkel too, so I suppose he needs a sense of humour.
