I was on the floor when Dave Allen did the joke about Irish girls buying their knickers at C&A.Wholly approved and unfunny. I don’t find comedy funny as a rule. I just take the view that you can’t contrive comedy. We laugh at many things that are completely unscripted, farcical even. But we have to find some kind of occupation for the Poor darlings. That said they do occasionally make me laugh but it might be once in a show. Yes Minister/PM I enjoy, cos it’s pretty much close to the truth observationably. I never really took to Fawlty towers, Monty python was another I liked. Now Dave Allen, there was a comic.
It went out at about seven PM on a Saturday night.
How he got away with it i will never know.
I was only about eight at the time, but i still got it.
