This review is from: Des O'Connor - Vol.1 [DVD]  (DVD)
What a wonderful surprise this dvd was. I enjoyed it from beginning to end. I did not realise just what a great entertainer Des O'Connor is. I took a chance with it because I love old British humour.
I was thoroughly entertained. It was from a time when TV actually entertained. It is great theatre! It was before my time, and I just Love it!
I love comedy, old and new. Just because something is old does not make it rubbish and equally just because something is modern does not necessarily mean it is no good. It is about the quality of the writing and the delivery.
The highlights for me are Jack Douglas, and Dusty Springfield. I even enjoyed the Liberace clips. My Nana was a fan, and it was interesting to see him perform. He was a great pianist, which can be forgotten.
I suppose we can't really complain that it is only highlights, as one reviewer quite rightly pointed out that a lot of stuff pre mid 70's got lost or wiped. We are lucky to have this.
I recommended this DVD to any lover of great entertainment, and British humour.
