Alexei Sayle is a National Treasure that is sadly often overlooked when people talk about Britian's great Comedians. Sure, this show from the late 80's/early 90's is somewhat dated in parts but many of the sketches and Alexei's rambling monologues to camera are still fresh and sharp today. Probably could have cut down a bit on the musical numbers front though as most of the songs here are no "'Allo John Got A New Motor?".
This show is never less than watchable and Sayle is backed up by an excellant regular cast including a surprisingly good Angus Deayton. Well worth another look as some of this material was before it's time, an example of which is one throwaway gag about people in India spilling out of the pub at closing time to go for an English, a very similar concept to "Goodness Gracious Me"'s supposedly groundbreaking and hillarious sketch about a bunch of Indians going out for an English.
The man is a legend and this DVD contains comedy that can simultaneously amuse you and make you think.
Go on treat yourselves to this and the 1st volume.
