Did You Know?
Only five of the planned six shows from the first series were produced when Channel 4 decided that "Back to Normal With Eddie Monsoon" (also referred to as "An evening With Eddie Monsoon" by some sources) was unsuitable for broadcast. The character was revived in the second series episode "Eddie Monsoon: A Life" and features Adrian Edmondson
in the title role as the washed-up South African TV host. The name Eddie Monsoon is, of course, a pun on the name Edmondson. Many years later, Edmondson's real-life wife Jennifer Saunders
resurrected the name Eddie (short for Edina) Monsoon for her character in the sitcom Absolutely Fabulous
(1992). See more

Darling, would it be all right if I got back together with the band?
That went rather well.
