Classic Humour
6 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The previous comment just shows how this brilliant comedy show was completely misunderstood . The participants had a no holds barred attitude which fired jokes at all groups in society . Irish , Blacks , Asians and even mothers-in-law were mercilessly laughed at through these shows . A typical example of the British quality of being able to laugh at yourself.

Many narrow minded individuals saw this show as racist and bigoted and its popularity indicated that the content appealed to the majority of viewers. The onset of political correctness spelled its doom although the spin off Wheeltappers and Shunters social Club proved equally popular.

We long for those days back............

Oh and before you ask , I'm of Asian descent raised in Bradford during the 70's
