Irish comedian denies comedy is down to face-shape

A scientist has claimed that Ricky Gervais has the ideal face for comedy.
Anthony Little from the University of Stirling has said people with a round face, small forehead and a wide nose are more likely to raise a giggle.
But Irish funnyman Dara O'Briain has responded saying it's a load of nonsense.
He said "There are certain things you want in a comic, but they work on a much more subtle level than the shape of your head.
Otherwise, you'd just go out on the street and go, that guy!! Look at him! Being funny-looking isn't enough."
