Miaow Pussycats!
24 March 1999 | by (Essex, England) – See all my reviews

This show is brilliant - a top quality comedy with a wonderfully talented cast. With a mixture of sketches and songs to suit all ages, Goodness Gracious Me dares to poke fun at English and Asian people alike. The show started out on BBC radio before being transferred very successfully to BBC2. Now, after two television series and a hit nationwide tour the cast are also enjoying solo successes, but they will all be back for a third series later in the year.

The live show was superb - a compilation of the best sketches from both series with a few new offerings packed in. The cast were so lovely they even let fans in backstage to meet them, signing autographs and posing for photos.

I'm definitely going to be a fan for life - and I'm looking forward to the next series!!

Stuff The Fast Show - give me Goodness Gracious Me (and a small aubergine) any day!!

Caroline :o)
