    Was that the ‘so these “warmed through” buns are selling exceptionally well” sketch?

    Followed by “this surfeit of cooking staff is resulting in a less good soup?”

    It was indeed.

    I watched Rising Damp the other day, having never really watched it before and was surprised how funny it was

    Don Warrington and Richard Beckinsale were a hell of a supporting cast also.

    What? Don Warrington was “supporting cast”?

    In so far as he wasn’t Leonard Rossiter, I meant.

    Aye, I know. Rossiter was a class act in everything he did (even Cinzano adverts) but Don and Frances de la Tour I reckon deserve equal billing in Rising Damp.

    If you enjoy “Still game” then “Fags mags and bags” on the radio is very good.

    Coincidence this appearing, cos in a charity shop they had 10 items for 99p, so I purchased a Little Britain series 1, 2 DVD set. Admittedly not that old, but old enough to be slightly cancelled. I found it utterly hilarious. More so than I remembered. Especially “you didn’t tell me you had such an attractive gran…” 😆

    Monty Python. Now go away or I shall taunt you a second time!

    ‘Allo ‘Allo
    2 Ronnies
    Blackadder
    Morecombe and Wise
    Airplane!

    I am noting that most of this stuff was forced upon me by my Dad and it’s left me with a twisted and warped sense of humour, misunderstood by many.

    I’m three seasons into watching 30 Rock for the first time. It started in 2007 I think and by 2009 it had built up into one of the funniest shows I’ve ever seen.

    Also watched the first two episodes of Seinfeld this week, which looks dated visually now but obviously the comedy still works. It’s noticeable how much more leisurely it’s paced, compared to more recent comedy. In some ways it feels closer to Happy Days than 30 Rock or Brooklyn 99.

    Hadn’t heard of 30 Rock though it did remind me that one of the few American comedies I was ever able to stomach was 3rd Rock From The Sun. Yes it was daft but…

    Question was “still works”. Their “comedy” never did. Well, never was really.
