Exactly, when you think about it they were the pioneers of black British comedy.
There are some comedians around , but it would be good to see the newer ones on mainstream t.v...The only one they show now is Lenny Henry.. His comedy interludes were a complete washout at the Jubilee.. Totally not funny! I really miss Three Non-Blondes...Wonder whats happened to all of them?? Jocelyn Gee Essien had a few shows on BBC Three and now.. Well, shes not on there again..

Yeah, Three NON-Blondes was brilliant, Tameka Empson is in Eastenders now, don't know what happened to Jocelyn and the others. Little Ms Jocelyn was funny as well. I quite liked Goodness Gracious Me as well, even though it wasn't a black show, it was an Asian show - but still funny. I wish black people could band together like the Asians, maybe then we could have our own TV channels like they do. Among many other things.

True...Tameka Empson is quite funny...Goodness, Gracious, Me was a funny show..Hasn't really been followed up with anything else..Hey, remember that sketch where a south asian family were all crammed inside a car, with like 20 plus people inside? Well to my slight horror, I found that was true!! Hahahaha..I was down Bethnal Green and just got off a bus, when I saw about ten people coming out of the car and a small baby too!! Hahahaha...That family probably have a 4x4 now...It makes sense instead of cramming everybody in a car...They're lucky police didn't stop them...

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!

Black comedy just isn't the same anymore!! They need to bring back a lot of comedy acts to either BBC or Channel 4...
