Born out of the working men's clubs, this quick fire stand up comedy show will always be remembered as a classic. If you didn't think a particular joke was funny, the likes of Bernard Manning, Colin Crompton, Ken Goodwin or George Roper would be next on, to deliver another.

Some people moan that the jokes were (what are now deemed to be) politically incorrect, but when the coloured comedian Charlie Williams parodies himself, that is what humour is all about, we can laugh at ourselves and at each other, as well as them laughing at us.

Now though the PC brigade seem to think everything is ageist, racist, sexist, weightist, classist, mycarisbetterthanyourcar-ist. Bring back the comedians
