(and now as well a TV
) show starring Chris Langham
as Roy Mallard is a series of spoof
documentaries in which Roy Mallard goes around meeting people who do particular jobs (such as an estate agent, a headteacher, and a solicitor). I cannot fully describe how funny
this show is- try to find one of the BBC
cassettes of the series and listen to it yourself. The comedy is so slick
that if you didn't know, it would take you most of the show to realise that it's a spoof
. This show shows that British comedy
from the BBC
is still going strong after all these years.
Chris Langham also writes and co-stars with Caroline Quentin in Kiss Me Kate.
