MORECAMBE’S heavyweight boxing star Tyson Fury made a good fist of stand-up comedy for Sport Relief last night on BBC3.
The 6ft9in fighter was one of five UK sports personalities who told gags in front of a studio audience to raise money for the charity.
The highlight of Fury’s routine was a joke about his heavyweight rival Audley Harrison, who he said “would have been asked to do the show, except he couldn’t stand up for three minutes!”
Fury was mentored for his stand-up routine by comic Daniel Sloss.
TV presenter Gabby Logan won the TV competition, beating Tyson, cricketer Michael Vaughan, rugby player Ben Cohen and ex-footballer Neil “Razor” Ruddock. The programme, which went out between 9pm and 10pm, was hosted by Claudia Winkelman.
