Phil Cool - Wish He Were Back.
20 August 2010 | by carteranddawn77See all my reviews

I Completely agree with the other review. Phil Cool was in the spotlight of the late 1980s, early 1990s on British Television and live throughout the UK for an All too brief time. His show COOL IT on BBC2 remains one of the best impressionist shows ever. Although Rory Bremner is good, his show featured only brief stage performances and the rest required so many props. Phil's had a lot less props - and unlike Rory he was a one-man show throughout the whole series. If you combined CARROTT CONFIDENTIAL with NOW - SOMETHING ELSE, that pretty much sums it up. One BBC2 episode that sticks with me was the "Alien Transformation to a human - he became TERRY WOGAN". With just a green light, a rubbery face, and his brilliant vocal range. I am privileged to own both BBC VHS Videos that were released at the time, as well as having a few off-air recordings from 1988. I also remember the 1992 ITV show COOL HEAD - but not as fondly as the format he had before had changed, and I suspect the team of writers had as well. But I do have a couple of off-air recordings and they are better than most of today's efforts. I also wish for the original COOL IT to return to our screens, maybe G.O.L.D. ? Sadly Sketch series other than THE TWO RONNIES seem to stay lost in the past. Would love to see 1980's Jasper Carrott, Hale And Pace, Smith And Jones etc... on UK Television - a refreshing change to the repetitive albeit good sitcoms that do the rounds constantly.
