This was the film version of the Amnesty International stage show "A Poke In The Eye (With A Sharp Stick)". See more »
It is particularly gratifying to see so many young faces here tonight. We often think that young people today are only out for a good time. Well, that certainly can't be said of these young people.

This is THE best thing to happen in the history of all time! Being able to watch Alan Bennet, Peter Cook, and Jonathan Miller perform together is bloody amazing!
I am unfortunately too young to remember beyond the fringe and have never seen any footage of it as it was mostly all lost back in the 60's, but this DVD gave me the chance to see the 3 of them perform together, and even though Dudley Moore isn't there Terry Jones makes a GREAT replacement and the Shakespearean sketch works fabulously.
It was also great to see Barry Humphreys do his wonderful Edna Everidge performance before he became tainted by ally McBeal.
The only (and I mean ONLY) down side was Bill Oddie who I hate but I do love the funky Gibbon song and Tim Brooke Taylor and the one with the chuffs are fab so it balances itself out.
All in all this is a fabulous watch and well worth buying.
