Comic Roots

NOTABLE BRITISH funnypeople revisit the places and faces of their formative years, before such a gimmick became a South Bank Show staple and hence done to death. Highlights included KENNETH WILLIAMS declaiming on stage to a non-existent audience (“If life is a joke, then make it a good one!”) and MICHAEL PALIN as a deranged psychiatrist talking about Michael Palin and promptly getting carted off in an ambulance.

    The Michael Palin episode also includes a lovely scene where he enjoys an old Goon Show and a cup of tea with Spike Milligan.
    Palin – ‘I passed Peter Sellers in a corridor once…’
    Milligan – ‘Sounds painful!’
