Hello comedy fans. I've been racking my brains and Google searching today in the hope of finding the name of a comedy sketch show I would laugh at during my time at secondary school in the mid 90s. Unfortunatly I have had no luck, however I stumbled across this excellent site so its not all bad news.

The one sketch I remember involved a padantic jobs-worth scottish ticket inspector standing by a doorway preventing anyone from entering for the most rediculously petty reason. He would say -

"Tickets to me, valid tickets to me. You cannot enter without a valid ticket"

Someone would then approach with a ticket, the inspector finds a reason to refuse entry and an arguement would unfold.

Any ideas? Rolling eyes

Really? Were you a writer or something? And if so, out of curiosity, do you remember any of the sketches you wrote?

Oh come on Marc, you expect us to believe you worked on this show from the mid-90's?????

Why you'd only have been a baby then. :)

I have just watched and done credits for the pilot episode (1995), and Marc is definitely credited.

I went up there for a board as script editor/producer for the comedy dept of BBC Scotland and they asked me to write on the show.
