Jasper Carrott's Back to the Front....and he's full of it! 3 hours of Carrott at his very best. A hilarious and brilliant collection of non-stop stand up that will have you laughing out loud. Jasper performs a dazzling collection of stoires and anecdotes that only he can deliver. He looks at a fantastic range of topics, including: holidays, teenagers, scuba diving, royalty, male strippers, the world's hottest curry, and much more! A comic genius and one of the most likeable and successful comedians ever. Now for the first time, all 6 episodes in their entirety are here on one DVD.

One of our best comedians, and one of the best comedy series ever broadcast, is now available. I remember watching this twice on tv and have been waiting a long time to get my hands on it.

Jasper Carrott is incredibly underrated. I guess he never went out of his way to be a celebrity( thank goodness ) and didn't appear on lots of chat shows, but just produced a succession of incredibly high quality programmes over the years.

Back To The Front is I think the pinnacle of his tv work. Others rate things like The Detectives ( that grew out of Canned Carrott)and Carrott Confidential--both great, but the quality of the writing and performing on Back To The Front is quite amazing. It is absolutely hilarious ---and clever.

To get the whole 6 half hour episodes on one DVD is a real treat--and great value.

There are already half a dozen or so reviews that will tell you Jasper Carrott is pure comedy genius, and this is him at his best.

I won't even bother reviewing the programme content, then, because I'd just repeat all the other reviews. Carrott is brilliant -- deserving of a 5 star rating -- we'll leave it at that.

What I will draw your attention to is the fact I now own two copies of this DVD, bought from different sellers and in different conditions (one is brand new, one used). Both the DVDs have read failures on a range of disc sectors, in identical places. I've tried both discs in several drives and they all have problems with the same "place" on the disc. When you play the disc, you'll probably hit a glitch roughly 30-40 seconds into the first episode. How well your player copes with "skipping" over that glitch depends on the player. Put it in your PC and make a disc image, and the process will fail fairly early on.

Now, I'll draw your attention to the fact I said I have two copies and they have an identical glitch -- that is to say, they fail to read at precisely the same sector number(s), as reported by two totally different drives. Even my normal DVD player freezes playback at that exact same point on both copies unless I fast-forward over the glitch. For this to be a fluke is really less likely than winning the lottery on two consecutive occasions. Hence, I suspect there was a glitch in the glass master when these discs were manufactured, i.e. every single copy is affected. It's only a small glitch, so maybe you'll live with it. But if you're thinking about returning it because of that glitch, bear in mind it seems every single copy is affected.

Clearly, somebody in Quality Assurance wasn't paying attention on that day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Typical Carrott... 17 April 2012
Verified Purchase
Great viewing. The disc we received has a slight fault at the beginning so we had to fast track past the first sketch. However, the rest of the disc was perfect and is typical Jasper Carrott crammed full of laughs. A good buy, although if your disc has the same fault, it may well be worth returning!

5.0 out of 5 stars Jasper Carrott's Back to the Front 12 July 2011
Verified Purchase
Low price, high in laughs. Jasper is one of the best stand up comics, without the use of too many 4 letter words. Six excellent 30 min shows on one disk.

5.0 out of 5 stars More please!!! 10 Jun 2011
We so enjoyed this DVD and hope to buy more as he is one of the best comedy turns in this country but has not been on telly for so long it beggars belief and people soon forget. So it is great that he has DVD's and CD's out for our entertainment. I hope he keeps making them and I am wondering why Richard Digance has not followed suit. Both are great stand-up comedians and you are always guaranteed a good laugh. Thank you Jasper and Amazon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Superb! 10 Jan 2011
Everything I hoped for and pleasantly surprised that it was as good as I remember. I do wish Jasper was still doing live shows and TV rather than boring Quiz games! Well done would recommend - so rare now to get something that really makes you laugh.
