Carrott and Powell inspired casting
on 26 July 2017
Robert Powell and Jasper Carrott are, in my opinion, a fantastic comedy pairing. They remind me of Morcambe and Wise; there's no straight man, they're both idiots. Briggs and Louis are funny because they both think they're hard, seasoned coppers when in fact they haven't got a clue between them. Some of the funniest moments come from their attempts to extract themselves with dignity from the mess they've made, or their conviction that they're the epitome of class. I laugh out loud each time I watch this dvd. The hostage situation during the F.A. Cup Final, the casino scene with Briggs and Louis in the background, the factor 50 face cream in the disco, and trying to pass themselves off as a band who were big in the 60s and singing the Neighbours theme tune to a nightclub full of teenagers. There isn't a dull episode, or indeed moment, on this disc. It's hilarious writing and inspired casting.
