Surprised the BBCare allowing it to be shown.
The man was a comedy genius and very un PC even in the 70's.
I wonder if there will be some editing or even some stitching together of the "safe" bits from several episodes, either would be a great shame.
I agree he was seriously funny and far from PC even then.
Forget the sketches, even though you are right.Were there any 'safe' bits? Pretty much every sketch he did could cause offence these days...
Forget the sketches, even though you are right.
Just him sitting on his stool, with a sparked-up tab and a glass of ‘water of life’ in hand, would have today’s producers and the professionally offended reaching for the sal volatile.
From a doc on about him last year there were loads of stories about how he lost his finger mostly told by him to different people.
It still remains a mystery and even his own son didnt know how he actually lost it.
I dont know why but I love that fact.
