60 year old male fond of British comedy and thriller shows and films
5 May 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Danny Ross was one of the funniest actors I remember from being young.The "Alf all" sketch with Arthur Askey "Don't worry I'll catch you" was brilliant and unforgettable.

Genuinely they don't make films as clever and quick witted as these anymore and whilst they are very nostalgic they are certainly sharp comedies. I saw Jimmy Clitheroe on the pier at Blackpool many times as a lad and other names such as Kenn Dodd where I got his autograph and Ken signed it to me "Yours Toothfully" In addition I saw Morecame and Wise in their early days in Blackpool However the Clitheroe Kid was something else and there was never one show which did not have me in hysterics. Great cast and funny lines. Brilliant. BBC 7 needs to put on more
