One of my favourite scenes was when one of them asked another the time and he said: I got it writted down on a piece of paper, it say's 8.
The reply: I wish I had the time writted down on a piece of paper...
Oh and one of the sketches I am sure was based on my grandfather as Harry Secombe used to meet and talk to my grandfather when he was working on the trains. The scene mentions a 'right proper Charlie from the Carshalton Marshes' ... I think that's right ... anyway my grandfather was called Charles and he lived in the Carshalton, near some very marshy fields.
Oh and he used to give my grandad a bit of money to buy his kids sweets.
I think the goons are very funny
Although I don't understand a thing without a script in front of my nose
I guess people would call me old fashioned when it comes to comedy. I love Monty Python, Blackadder, Goons, Allo Allo and so on. Must be the influence from my dad. We have the same taste for music and comedy.
