Some weird comedy from the BBC comedy archives that you'll have no memory of

Look, it’s Bruiser with Martin Freeman!

And here's Sacha Baron Cohen's Christo from Comedy Nation, which you also won't remember!

You can see more on BBC2 tonight, apparently, on The Comedy Vaults: BBC Two’s Hidden Treasure. I'm looking forward to the 1984 Madness, written by Ben Elton and Richard Curtis after the band had appeared on The Young Ones. The premise is that Margaret Thatcher was a space alien who had been recalled to Mars – then replaced as Prime Minister by Suggs with his bandmates as the Cabinet, who met in a room above a cafe. Seems plausible.

Less plausible is that was 30 years ago.


Allowable comments

You can leave just about any kind of comment you like. You can argue, suggest I am (or anyone else is) wrong, leaving general messages of love – anything. However, you absolutely can't leave messages that attack other commenters (or me), are simple variations of "your review sucks" or that are misogynistic, racist, homophobic, etc: your comment will either be edited or deleted and you'll be barred from leaving any further comments. We want to keep it civil here.


You can hide a spoiler by putting <spoiler> before it and </spoiler> after it. Hover over a spoiler to reveal it!
