The Very Best Of The Comedians - Series One
The quintessential quickfire stand-up comedy show, The Comedians is one of the great successes of ITV - lasting from 1971 until 1993 and making household names of many of its stars. With routines that were honed to perfection in the hard-knock territory of Northern working men's clubs, Frank Carson, Charlie Williams, Bernard Manning, Colin Crompton and Ken Goodwin all became masters of the one-liner and the knowing wink.
The Comedians was immediately popular with the viewing public scoring high ratings and gaining a BAFTA nomination for Best Light Entertainment Programme. It lasted for eleven series and several specials over twenty-two years. This specially-created compilation from its early years contains some of the best moments from series one.
Extras include a documentary about a year in the life of the comedian Ken Goodwin.

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
