Quotes

Kitty: "Are you familiar with Marks?", she said. I said, "Well, I think their pants have dropped off." She said, "I was referring to Karl Marx, who as you know is buried in Highgate cemetery." I said, "Of course I knew! But were you aware," I said, "that Cheadle crematorium holds the ashes of Stanley Kershaw, patenter of the Kershaw double-gusset? To my mind a far bigger boom than communism!"

Brilliant timeless comedy
22 March 2001 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

This series ran for two series of six episodes each and one special in the mid 80's. Victoria Wood is one of the funniest, brightest and most clever comedians today. Her wit and charm come shining through her writing of sketches, songs and short plays. This series established her as one of the leading comedians in Britain and has gone on to perform sell out tours of her one woman show ever since. Further projects included the film 'Pat and Margaret' and the irresistibly charming sitcom 'dinnerladies'(sic). Helped with the talented aid of Julie Walters, Patricia Routledge and the irrepressible Celia Imrie, 'As Seen on TV' will continually delight fans and bring laughter to all those who watch.
