Fun from the east
4 April 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The return of Goodness Gracious Me for a one of special in 2014 was a reminder how groundbreaking the Asian comedy sketch show was albeit one with a Punjabi bent.

The series was mainly primarily aimed at people of Indian sub continent heritage but had broad appeal with the standout being the Kapoor family pronouncing their name as the Coopers, the mother who could make anything at home including an Apple Ipad, the father who thinks everything is Indian including Joanna Lumley (which she is.)

There would also be parodies of songs and musicals, the recent episode poking fun of Blurred Lines as well as Mary Poppins.

The series lasted a remarkably short time although the cast did well in taking the show on tour in Britain and other parts of the world as well as having diverse solo careers.

When it started Kulvinder Ghir was the more well known person to me as he appeared in the drama Howards Way and he seemed to be in his element prancing around in the various sketches.

The comedy was a bit hit and miss at times. Dave Lamb would appear as the token white person and the butt of some jokes as the show liked to display role reversal in racial stereotypes such as the archetypal rowdy lads night out and then to a late night restaurant for a bit of 'English.'
