Enfield's got a programme on the BBC next week, I believe. 

Hes not been funny for ages - his classic stuff was heavily based on stereotyping and observation - can you imagine him  doing "Les the bar man" now? the dementia and Alzheimer's society would be calling for everyone involved to be sacked by the BBC

see you later undertaker - in a while necrophile

Why were you so keen for say the BBC wouldn't give him a series now then?

You said they wouldn't give him a series.

Now it's, "Of course, they'll give him a series."

Keep doing you. It's a great character you've got going.

I said he wouldn't be able to make the same sort of comedy he made 25 years ago - not in the mood to be drawn by you tonight but nice try

And that's a good thing. Things move on.

Old Man Cleese railing - on the BBC - that the BBC wouldn't commission Monty Python now.

Well, no, of course not.

In the same way that no one was making silent slapstick movies in 1969.

are you joking? the woke brigade would be straight on that one - Enfield, Whitehouse , Walliams, Lucas and the league of,,,, team wouldnt be able to make the harmless comedy they made 20 odd years ago nowadays - not a chance 

...and Stavros makes a comeback, as expected. Now running a fancy coffee bar, because that's modern Hackney.

The imaginary "woke brigade" remains imaginary, as usual.

The new German made version of All Quiet On The Western Front is on Netflix from this weekend.  Received some great reviews.

It has a lot to live up to - previous screen adaptations have been superb.

Andor - Best Star Wars spin off by a country mile.  Scene setting, tension, story arc, etc.

With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

The Love Box in Your Living Room, a history of the BBC by Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse, was excellent, clever and occasionally poignant. It will enrage only those who either feel that way as a hobby, or those who are paid to fake that emotion on a daily basis.
