Elections. Brexits. Managers.
Lighten the mood a little.

What did you watch/ listen to as a youngster.
I count myself fortunate to have had a dad who listened to the Goons, Hancock, Round the Horne and a few more.
Watched The Marx Brothers, Laurel & Hardy etc.
They helped give me my sense of humour. Especially the Goons.

What/ who gave you your laughs as a kid.

I watched sitcoms much earlier than I was probably supposed to in the 80s/early 90s thanks to my dad being pretty lax about it. Blackadder, Red Dwarf, Bottom and Rab C Nesbitt informed my vocabulary at primary school. Probably the reason I was cheeky smart arse as a kid because I got (or thought I got) grown up jokes.

Oddly enough the more family friendly stuff that was on at the time (Russ Abbott, Little and Large, Bobby Davro, Allo Allo and the like) seemed like total pish even to my young ears/eyes.

I was going to see Cabaret two night ago,and went to that cafe next to the Festival Theatre (think it's called the City Cafe or something) ordered my Fish and Chips and DietCoke,glanced across the tables and sitting in the corner was Gregor Fisher.I sat there trying not to laugh thinking of Rab C Nesbit all the way through my meal.Think he noticed.

I think we got our first telly just after the '66 world cup.We argue with mum that we had it before then, she insists that we didn't.In which case we saw stuff at Granma and Grandads.We listened to far more radio back then and I think there was the Goons and Kenneth Williams and stuff like that.I think Hancock was on?Anyway the telly would have been early Dr Who,High Chapparal,Adam Adamant,Simon Dee,Dickson of Dock Green,then for laughs Laural and Hardy,Buster Keaton,and Charlie Chaplin and the Keystone Cops and that guy with the boss eyes? And Hannah Barbbera and Loony Tunes.Then we were allowed to stay up for the moon landing then Match of the Day then the Colditz Story, then Mony Python.Then during the holidays there was the Flashing Blade,Belle and Sebastion,The Singing Ringing Tree,and what's it's name?(Guy stuck on a deserted island).
Also big shout out for Watch with Mother-Tales of the Riverbank,AndyPandy,Trumpton,Mary Mungo and Midge and Sam's Cafe,then Play School,Blue Peter and Take Art.Rentaghost!Crackerjack.

I met him on a flight once. He is a proper luvvie with theatre school accent, not what you'd expect at all.

I'd forgotten about the Virginian,The Virginian was always an important programme in our house.

By that time I think there was the remote.You could flick between the two.If somebody like Weller was on swap shop, you watched that, then when it went to Cheggers you flicked over.

Think he was suggesting why , rather than could you watch Swap Shop , when Sally James was on the other side !
