HUGE amounts of comment spam killing my installation

I have ignored my blog for a few months,  while the system was set to manual moderation. Now I have 45,968 spam comments (and eleven valid ones) and am having trouble deleting the spam. I started with over 52000 spam comments, but after about an hour's worth of waiting for the site to respond, manually deleting thousands I am now about ready to give up.

Total : 45968 Comments

If you have some sort of utility that I can run on my server, rather than going through the web interface, that might help.

Thanks!
