Funny Friday

'Allo 'Allo was not a tv show I really watched but I did catch an occasional glimpse. I think I would enjoy it more now. I cracked up when I watched this 36 second clip.

Later edit: It seems this clip was from the tv show, The Dave Allen show.

  1. Hilarious. I loved Allo Allo. Especially the fallen Madonna with the big boobies (I'm not being crude, that was a reference in every show).

    2. Indeed it was Andrew. I agree with deeJohn that this probably wasn't from Allo Allo. Oh Rrrennie with the rolled r's!

    3. Rennie was an English actor, yes? I can't recall his proper name, but of course Google would tell me. The dead pan Dave Allen as the cart driver tells me it was the Dave Allen show.

  7. Andrew, I don't actually believe this sketch is from Allo Allo even though it says so on the video. I do believe it's a sketch from Irish comedian Dave Allens tv show.

    1. DeeJohn, that makes sense. It was a sketch, not part of a tv show and I don't recall outdoor scenes in Allo Allo.

    1. Jac, not sure that you should. It was the last vestiges of making fun of the WWII losers.

    1. Diane, Don't mention the war was from Fawlty Towers. Similar vein and even a more brilliant tv show.
