Product Description

The term alternative humour had not been heard of when Chic Murray first bestrode the stage. He was unique, a one-off, a comedic pioneer ranked in the highest echelons of his art in the last century. Chic s comic genius was all too rarely captured on film. This DVD includes rare footage of Chic s classic routines recorded whilst he was at the peak of his career as well as e specially recorded feature with Maidie Murray, Chic s wife and stage partner of many years. Just Daft: The Comic Genius of Chic Murray gathers together the off-beat comic genius s finest sketches and clips onto one hilarious DVD compendium.

About the Actor

Chic Murray turned the Celtic tradition of story-telling into an art form. His oblique, often perverse look at life was underpinned by an original sense of timing which likely originated from his accomplished but little known musicianship. A talented actor as well as a groundbreaking comedian, he appeared in various roles on British television and film notably Casino Royale, Gregory s Girl and memorably portrayed Liverpool Football Club manager Bill Shankly in You ll Never Walk Alone, receiving rave reviews. In 2005, Chic was named in The Comedian's Comedian, a poll where comedians chose their own favourite or most influential comedian.

Quiet, please: genius at work. "Just Daft" is indescribably funny; a 10 out of 10 tribute to one of the world's greatest (unsung?) comedy heroes. You'll love every minute of it. There's precious little of Chic Murray left, and this is the very best of it.Also available from Amazon on DVD, "The Chic Murray Collection". You'll want to add it to your home entertainment store too.What's more, I suspect you'll want to give it - gift-wrapped - to friends at home and abroad.And don't be fooled by all the tartan stuff: Chic Murray was loved not only in his native Scotland but the world over...in every country where men and women are free to laugh out loud.They don't get any better than this.

I can't help but notice that the other review (by J Mc) is actually for 'The Chic Murray Collection' NOT 'Just Daft' which is actually produced in conjunction with the Murray family, in line with the book of the same name by Robbie Grigor.

Excellent DVD, had my partner is stitches. I am not a fan of Chic Murray myself, but I have to admit I even started watching it and had a chuckle.

Any footage of this wonderful comedian is well worth getting, although some of the interviews included get in the way.
