A kick for the 80s
29 July 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Three of a kind was a fast paced sketch comedy show. Its use of Ceefax type gags gave it a cutting edge added to the mix that it pushed alternative comedy to the mainstream.

Lenny Henry was the best known star and this was his first big vehicle for the BBC after spending the last few years doing kids TV on ITV.

Tracy Ullman was the breakout, the one who would go on to crack America and give birth to The Simpsons, who had a segment in her show.

David Copperfield was the more traditional comedian but his Medallion man act was fun.

Not only did the series showcased rising stars but also new writers that would revolutionise 1980s television comedy.
