This peaks the resurgence of the great British Comedies

It seemed that there would never be another at one point and then suddenly BOOM!! Ab Fab, Alan Partridge, Father Ted, League of Gentlemen, Ali G

In short if theres a more funny take on real life then i want to see it!! It is every working mans club up and down the country, it's the entire Blackpool Prom in two series. Peter Kay has finally been given artistic licence and he takes it. The routines are excellent and you really have to see each show two or three times to take in all the jokes. The lack of canned laughter in the shows gives the audience an intellect rather than a cue and helps the show flourish.

Please! Please! more of this. It is the future of comedy. No it may not travel but who cares enjoy it it probably wouldn't last!
