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.
