Nano is going well for me and thus far the Num-Nums appear to be going down a treat.
Nano Num-Num day 3 sees another British comedy experience. Yesterday it was the Bonzos, who appeared on Do Not Adjust Your Set, a children’s comedy TV programme in the 1960s. The cast comprised: a young David Jason, who went on to star in many comedies (Open All Hours, and Only Fools and Horses); from the Pythons Michael Palin, looking unbelievably young, Eric Idle looking much as he did years later and Terry Jones looking, erm like he did; and the talented Denise Coffey, who largely disappeared. See where they started!
I’ve attached, here, episode one; a bit mixed but scroll to the family grocer at 3.45 or the Monster Mash by the Bonzos at about 7.40. It is childish but I’m sure you can see why I loved it as a kid; you’ll easily spot the early signs of the goonish humour that was to become the Pythons.
Or here’s another clip: how to eat.
Tomorrow we follow onto the David Jason
