It’s not often that newspaper production staff get much time in the limelight, so it’s refreshing to see the Daily Mirror’s picture editor Greg Bennett get his face – and some jokes of varying quality – across two pages in today’s Mirror.
Bennett went toe-to-toe in a comedy duel with 13-year-old aspiring comic Charlie Wernham, who starred in TV’s Britain’s Got Talent last Saturday. A video of the occasion is on the Mirror website.
Bennett – the paper’s “in-house joker” – more than held his own against the pint-sized funnyman but the Mirror declared the youngster the winner.
When he’s not dealing with pictures Bennett pens the Mirror’s Greg’s Giggle joke column.
