Where's me washboard? Eh? Eh?,
This review is from: Round the Horne, Series 1, Part 1 (The Golden Age of BBC Radio Comedy) (Audio CD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Awful, awful, awful. It's a bunch of dead people you've never heard of (save Kenneth Williams) telling jokes about a bunch of dead people you've never heard of. Well I say 'jokes', the material is of a quality my Grandad would have been ashamed of, the humour seems to come from saying the lines in one of two comedy voices, either camp or posh. The audience find all this disconcertingly hilarious and the uproarious laughter will get on your nerves.
The world has moved on a lot. This is the kind of comedy that was parodied so well by Paul Whitehouse in The Fast Show (which is itself 15 years old) where he'd walk on stage, say 'Where's me washboard?' and the audience, with their waxed moustaches and stovepipe hats, would fall about larfing for a minute.
If you're old and close to death yourself maybe you'll enjoying reliving the things that made you laugh so much in your youth, for those of us under 80 this should be avoided.
