Storyline

Barry and Garry run a pub in the West End of London. Each week their friend, certified cockney geezer Dodgy Phil, comes up with scheme to attract more punters. For example, turning the pub into a Michael Caine-themed restaurant, or making it a pub-cum-bookshop. Usually this ends in disaster and the pub is destroyed. In the meantime numerous film references are dropped Written by Richard Smeltzer

So funny
22 October 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

One of the funniest things I have ever seen. I would so like to see this again.

Every week you knew 'Dodgy' (Yes mate, no mate) Phil would get a phone call and they'd end up changing the theme of the pub, the fun was in seeing how they would end up burning the pub down again. The writing was so funny, I missed a lot of it for laughing, and then there were all the incidentals like the pub sign, posters and blackboard that always had something amusing on them - if you could spot them. The funniest episode was when the Michael Caine appreciation society came all dressed as their idol. I think there was a fire alarm and they all evacuated in character - lol.

I so miss this show.
