    GO ON, but watch your feet. Boots are exploding everywhere; in Hungary, on the football field, and at home where Britain's scradje deposits are on the blink. And make sure your banana is loaded when you join Neddie in Guatemala, and keep your salami primed as you search for missing diplomats Burgess and McTeeth. Or just sit back and listen to the lilting refrain of "I'm Walking Backwards for Christmas".

    Friday Night Live was a late night programme that pushed comedy on TV to new levels. Most TV comedy at that time was a rather safe affair full of middle aged comics and impersonators. Friday Night Live brought in a new generation of comedians; some from the growing club circuit and some along the path from University. Volume 2, Another comic who got an enormous boost from Friday Night Live was Harry Enfield. He introduced two great characters--the loveable Greek kebab shop owner Stavros, and the less loveable but equally funny Loadsamoney, the plasterer who boasted about his earnings in the booming late 80’s. Included here also is his Northern cousin Buggerallmoney--ah the north south divide! Other great tracks are to be found by Robbie Coltrane, Jo Brand and the wonderful Dame Edna Everage.

    Yes, it's hello again from them. For nearly 25 years The Two Ronnies were a TV institution, a much-loved double-act, each with his own inimitable, individual appeal. Who could forget Barker's hilarious 'pispronunciation', Corbett's witty monologues, the risque limericks, the puns, the patter, and the parody? So enjoy another fun-filled feast of verbal fireworks. Inspired classic comedy from the two one-offs who said goodnight but not goodbye.
