Absolutely AMAZING!
12 April 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

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.
