Gummer is a bummer
19 March 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

'Why oh why have they given this unfunny comedian another show. ITV have tried to flog this guy on the British public for years with no success, now the BBC are giving him airtime.'

That was my reaction in 1982 when I heard Carrott's Lib was going out live on BBC1 on Saturday nights. To me Jasper Carrott was another pub comedian whose questionable talents escaped me. He had an audience and a cult reputation but that was it.

Boy was I wrong. This was one of the funniest programs on the box. Edgy, satirical, topical, controversial. The program had pre recorded sketches, but Carrott provided the links and a wry commentary on the week's events. Somewhere between the late 1970s and early 1980s Carrott had moved to alternative comedy and just ran with it. He also gave an early break to Chris Barrie.

Of course like a lot of topical comedy shows, it now looks dated but it was a show of its time and a landmark one.
