Please send me, as a comment to this page, any old material you have for inclusion in The Daily Joke Alert - to help enable us all to have our fancy tickled regularly! Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.

  1. “”Klaus Sperber (January 24, 1944 – August 6, 1983), better known as Klaus Nomi, was a German countertenor noted for his wide vocal range and an unusual, otherworldly stage persona.

    Nomi was known for his bizarrely visionary theatrical live performances, heavy make-up, unusual costumes, and a highly stylized signature hairdo which flaunted a receding hairline. His songs were equally unusual, ranging from synthesizer-laden interpretations of classical opera to covers of 1960s pop standards like Chubby Checker’s “The Twist” and Lou Christie’s “Lightnin’ Strikes”. He is remembered in the United States as one of David Bowie’s backup singers for a 1979 performance on Saturday Night Live.[1]

    Nomi died in 1983 at the age of 39 as a result of complications from AIDS.[2]””

    Klaus Nomi is the kind of Artist that fell on earth “unidentified” ..He has been invited by many Tv show (Germany-Austria-Switzerland) but also in The U.K. With less success, not quiet a Gary Numan, not quiet Dark Wave…Not quiet anything you know.
    I’m glad Oyia that you pick up on him. Somethings, and People Get To Be Forgotten…

    I could think of Enrico Caruso …Just a little… very little
