Did anyone see this when it was on?

I remember enjoying it at the time, I'm not a big Alexei Sayle fan but I remember this show being really clever & funny.

Although Sayle's never been a favourite of mine, I enjoyed this a lot. Then again, David Renwick was one of the writers so it had a good pedigree. The All New Alexei Sayle Show was good too.

This thread's almost as popular as your Let's Play Another Game thread, Sunshine! ;)

It was one of the first "alternative" sketch shows so it was a must to watch. It seemed quite groundbreaking at the time.

I can do worse than this thread believe me.
And I probably will.

But it's coming to something when a Chip endorsed thread doesn't get to the second page.
Give it time.. they will come.

I've been thinking about picking this up at some point. I was too young to be interested when it was on.

I remember it as very good and strangely aggressive. And of course I had to endure questions about my "new motor"... must look out for it.

I can remember watching the first series when I was a kid. There was a sketch about Oscar Wilde teaching a self-defence class, wasn't there?

Awful. Remember watching tele willing him to be funny, because liked his political affiliations, but he was crap. I think he's a good man, but I don't think performance comedy is his forte.

I always felt that he was much better in theory than he actually was in practice. Not crap but just not as funny as he ought to have been, somehow.

Saw Alexei Sayle live twice in the 1980s. Absolutely superb. Funniest comedian I ever saw.

And this show was good, too.
