FROM OUT OF JEREMY ISAACS’ much-in-evidence arch lever file marked “minorities” sprung this fondly remembered C4 ensemble fixture. Cast of Willesden Green-dwelling home-alone kids, assembled and bankrolled by Lord Humphrey “Channel 4 Comedy? I’ll Take It” Barclay, comprised Angel (JANET KAY); younger brother and aspiring DJ Toshiba (CHRIS TUMMINGS); Bellamy (VICTOR ROMERO EVANS) who lived in a tent with various pets including pet snake Satan; wannabe model Terri (SHOPE SHODEINDE) plus boyfriend Basil East aka The Beast (MALCOLM FREDERICK); and evangelical cousin Melba (ANGELA WYNTER). Caught flak from numerous quarters for not being right-on enough and instead being, ah, rather funny.
