TV: R is for...

Right Charlie

RUN-OF-THE-MILL CIRCUS clownery with veteran wig-side-flap-raiser CHARLIE CAIROLI and his troupe doing the sort of stuff that would soon be visible only on BILLY SMART’S EASTER CIRCUS, and eventually, thankfully, nowhere on TV at all.

    I’d been wondering for years what this show was called – only vaguely recollect enjoying it. It also featured Norman Barrett (famous ringmaster) and his budgies – which I remember better!

    I remember it aswell.

    I thought it was quite funny.

    There was a guy in a vest and kilt (little Jimmy?), who just stood there and let them pour buckets of water etc. on him.

    I remember his tagline “Right kids?” which drew the standard response – a roar of “right Charlie”. That is, until they went to a venue where kids maybe were slower on the uptake. The response was a half-hearted “Yeah!”

    I blame comprehensive schools.
