Product Description

Product Description

Back in the day, if you wanted to raise money you stood on street corner with a tin and a smile. Step forward Mr John Cleese, who rounded up a few friends in 1976 for Amnesty's first show, A Poke In The Eye (With A Sharp Stick). Of course it helps if your "friends" include the Monty Python crew, Peter Cook, Alan Bennett, Neil Innes, John Bird and The Goodies. This is Volume One of the first ever Secret Policman's Ball including shows 'Pleasure at her Majesty's (1976), and Mermaid Frolics (1977).

Format: DVD
This DVD is a joy! It's bits of two Secret policemen's balls (as it were!) from 1976 and 1977, featuring a few famous sketches: The 'parrot sketch', 'The last supper with the kangaroo'...the 'Lumberjack song'...'oo oo oo the funky gibbon!'
but also, glorious bits of Our Lord Peter Cook backstage (and onstage) this really is a treat...
and to think I thgought I'd seen them all!

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
