Nostalgic fun, bringing back memories of when comedy was less bad language and more clever use of good language. On view of the amount of shows that were done the DVD running time could have been longer.

Nice to re-visit this and laugh out loud. It was supposed to be a gift for the other half but I got just as much enjoyment out of it as he did.

A waste of money, consists of only two highlights from the original shows and far too much practically inaudible backstage bumf

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother, 12 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Secret Policeman's Ball - The Early Years [Pleasure at Her Majesty's and Mermaid Frolics] [DVD] (DVD)
I had visions of this as a nostalgic comedy tour de force but poor material, poor editing and dreadful production values make it almost unwatchable.
I was happier with the rather faded but definitely rose tinted memories than I was with this DVD.
