Does anyone remember this brilliant 90s comedy sketch show? There isn't anything even close to this any more! Anyway, I found some clips for those of us who are old enough to remember to fondly reminisce, and anyone who isn't, can watch and have some laughs. Enjoy!

It's shame there aren't more current programmes being produced, all the actors/ actresses seem to be more integrated into dramas etc.

I don't mind that, but still it's nice to watch a programme that you can culturally identify with ..I wonder why there isn't more investment made in the black film/ tv industry.

I really don't know, it's not as if there isn't enough money in the black community, we could come up with something if we put our minds to it and pooled our resources.
I have recently heard of an online sitcom about a Nigerian family in Britain called Meet the Adebanjos. Haven't got around to watching any episodes yet, but here is the link:

If it's successful it may even go on TV.

The white guy with the "Black mates" was funny, we've all met someone like that haven't we? Lol.

True, and the funny thing is, fame never seemed to go to their heads back then. I remember once I saw Norman Beaton (Desmond) in Brixton market and he was going around chatting to everyone and seemed really down to earth. RIP.

Yeah, I've heard some stories similar to that... A lot of Reggae and t.v stars frequented places in Londons black communities.. Apparantly, Norman Beaton used to regularly drink at a pub in Brixton.. My mum met Dennis Brown(RIP) in the seventies when he was beginning his career in the u.k.. Fresh off the plane from J.A... He was quite humble too apparantly..Some people act too stush nowadays...They could take a tip or two from them if they were still around..

Exactly, when you think about it they were the pioneers of black British comedy.
