"I'm Only A Poor Little Sparrow", by The Ramblers

While this near-novelty single precedes the infamous No. 1 "There's No-One Quite Like Grandma" (by St. Winifred's Children's Choir") by one year...is it not far more annoying, and thus deservedly not...

what do Monty Python fans REALLY think of Series 4?

Personally, I think it is under-appreciated - despite half the episodes focusing on a single story, instead of being in the more popular multi-sketch format, each of them raise more laughs than the...

will any comedy fans be tuning into "Harry And Paul", from Tuesday onwards?

If the answer is 'no', that is entirely understandable - for the new series on BBC2 is arguably a series too far. :( Not only have Enfield co. gone a step backwards in being moved from BBC1 (where...
