Magic Moustache

Not strictly British, but those with long memories will recall a time when Hans Moretti and his lovely (ahem) assistant Helga were staples on any light entertainment telly. Crackpot German magician with a poor grasp of English, specializing in escapology and stunts involving live ammunition, crossbows and potential self-harm. Sporting a fine 'tache, no doubt he used magic to channel all of his follicular energy from his scalp to his top lip.

I thought he was brilliant. Much more impressive than Paul Daniels and his petty Bunko Booth.

  1. If I remember correctly, on Paul Daniel's show he used to have his assistant aim at his forehead. To assist her aim he would draw on a dot with lipstick. Lipstick on a man's forehead. It made me nauseous.
