Top-drawer comedy, the drawer being labelled 'Jokes That Were Held For Questioning The Night Vaudeville Died'. In its way, a loving tribute to the great days of sketch comedy. Particularly memorable for Bill Franklyn's catchphrase: 'Tempting, isn't it?', perhaps the best example appearing in an exchange with the luscious Madeleine Smith in a satire on a law series:
Smith: "Do you want to see a healthy firm bust?"
Franklyn (deadpan, to camera): "Tempting, isn't it?"
Bob Todd in a spider costume, Barry Cryer at the peak of his powers - what more could you want from comedy?
The video of the series, that's what!
