One Of The All Time Greats
The list of writers who supplied material for this series should give you an instant idea as to how brilliant this overlooked gem was. Apart from Feldman himself there was the Monty Python team and a handful of other now legendary comics. The result was one of the funniest TV shows in history. Marty Feldman was the perfect looking ringmaster for the distinctively no-holds-barred and aggresively zany humour. Each show was a stream of great sketches that didn't show the slightest weakness. It is a pitty that few shows were made, but also a blessing that they were made at all. Marty Feldman went onto international superstardom in the USA with a further, though slightly inferior, TV series and a load of smash hit movies. But this series is Marty Feldman at his performing, writing peak.
