Can someone please save my sanity!

I remember a sketch with Paul Whitehouse and Harry Enfield where Paul played a dutch hedonist and Harry a East German student. Paul's character says he's not been so down, depressed or bombed since Jimi Hendrix died. To which harry Enfield says "Jimi Hendrix is dead?!"

I think one of them also said "I will be the minister for pretty girls"

Nobody can find the sketch and it has caused much piss taking to the extent that I receive every Christmas "Jimi Hendrix is Dead!?" mugs, hip flasks, t-shirts, ties and the like!

Can any let me know if it exists or just a creation of my fevered mind, if so "Jimi Hendrix is Dead!?" ©2018 Stephen Blatch

Yep couldn't find it. Although the Rick Astley video you sent me was quite funny.

I couldn't unearth anything despite extensive and creative snooping that involved but was not limited to bribery, impersonation, kidnap and murder. If you know the year you could use IMDb to see what material there was knocking around then and then watch it to see if that sketch really exists and isn't from a dream.

I remember that sketch. I've just rewatched Harry Enfield and Chums since it's been put on Netflix, so I think it must be from Television Programme (if it's not please don't sue me).

Luckily someone's put all of that series on YouTube - I know it's tedious but you could flick through each episode until you find it and then extract it using YouTube to mp4 or something. Here's a link to Series 1 Episode 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vpiKSpawixo

The sketch definitely exists though, I can picture what the characters looked like.
