America had Hee Haw and the Blue Collar Comedy Tour while the Brits had Benny Hill and Carry On movies. Sure, they also had wonderful stars like Sid James, Joan Sims, Bernard Bresslaw, Kenneth Connor, Barbara Windsor, Hattie Jacques, and others to make us laugh and ease living a little. I could see why Babsy is so popular because she is so much fun. Sadly, Sid James died in 1976 and he was the king of the Carry On playing the dirty old man most of the time. The lovely Dame of British comedy, Joan Sims, never got to be a dame, a CBE, An OBE, or an MBE during her lifetime but I hope somebody out there would consider an award named after her for women who provide lifetime achievement in comedy. Even though, most of us known Joan from As Time Goes By as Madgie. She was truly a gifted comedic actress worthy of such honors that was never properly bestowed upon her and it is pity. Maybe it's because Carry On stars like Barbara Windsor and Kenneth Connor were finally awarded MBEs but it was something. Maybe the honors committee don't consider the Carry Ons to be anything to be proud so they knight and Dame those Shakespearan actors and actresses instead but I bet that they don't have as much fun as the Carry On Gang does here. Carry On isn't classless but a teaser of a show for everybody involved. They appear to have a lot of fun making it without getting awards. Maybe that's why they don't matter as much.
