BBC comedy series parodying the works of Charles Dickens and heavily influenced by a similar, long-running radio series. A respectable shopkeeper, Jedrington Secret-Past, (unsurprisingly) discovers that he has a secret past.
A docudrama based on the actual incident involving Catherine "Kitty" Genovese who, on March 13, 1964, was attacked and viciously stabbed to death several times by a psychopath, while nearby residents watched but did nothing to help.
I found Fun at the Funeral Parlour by accident on a DVD website, I am so glad I did! If I had to describe the show I would call it a mixture of, The Young Ones meet The Marx Brothers in Slade prison. I cant understand why it was never shown in Australia, and why it didn't go on for season after season, by the end of season two, the writing and acting was tight, brilliant and very funny! All the actors did a fantastic job, and Rhys Thomas has to be highly commended for both his acting and writing skills! Lets get another series going!! P.S. I loved seeing Christopher Ryan(Mike from The Young Ones) playing an Oompa Loompa, I laughed myself stupid at that!!
