Very very good comedy
15 August 2006 | by (Bournmouth, England) – See all my reviews

I'm so glad I found someone else in the world who saw this. I was beginning to think I was the only one!

It's a truly excellent comedy - anarchic, insane, controversial, thought provoking. Even now, 23 years later I can still remember the lines and key moments. Comedy acting at its best, with ad lib moments and quick thinking throughout.

All the actors put their whole heart and being into the parts, and it's unlike anything you've seen before, seeming to be almost unscripted in parts.

The question now is can you get it on video? I'd love to get hold of this!
