This reminds me of a Bill Hicks routine he did in Egham, Surrey, there's a bootleg on youtube. For those that are unaware of who Bill Hicks is, he was an American Comedian who found an audience in the UK, before dying prematurely aged 33 in 1994.
On his second tour of the Uk in as many years, he said he'd been watching the snooker in his hotel room.
'I was here last year, watched two guys playing each other for 3 days. I turn it on this time, same two guys playing each other!'
'I know why this game takes so long. That white-glove f*cker keeps picking the balls out of the pockets and putting them back on the table! In my country, if you pot a ball it stays in the pocket!'
He must have been talking about Hendo and the Wind...
