THE TERRIBLE FINGERS OF JOHNNY LEVER

A single glimpse of his awfulness has been known to kill the elderly and small children.If you've seen a Bollywood movie then you have, unfortunately, seen Johnny Lever.

With his shiny curls, his long, tapering, constantly squirming fingers, his screeching voice and his rubbery face, a single glimpse of his awfulness has been known to kill the elderly and small children.

Yet this man is the most popular comedian in India. Like Martin Lawrence, or Rob Schneider, he's one of those people who is cast in comedies not because he's particularly funny, but because he's been in other comedies and the producers figure, "Why not? Someone must like him." Although I suspect the awful truth is that no one likes him.

If you've seen a Bollywood movie then you have, unfortunately, seen Johnny LeverIn this interview with the Terrifying Mr. Lever he says that his talent was given to him at birth and that he's such a gifted mimic that "I once spoke with an African man for 30 minutes in his language without knowing it and he had no idea I didn’t know a word."

Dear god in heaven.

"you f**ing c***ks dont understand a thing, he is like stephen chow over here, a comedic genius."

Get TripK a job in masala films - this post has more humor than the collective works of Johnny Lever.

You are funny.

I guess that you must be right and everyone else is wrong. Good thing no one obviously uses your opinion to influence who is cast in a comedy.

I am sure it would good for you, just bad for everyone else.
