Stick to humour, lads
Letter of the week
WHY isn’t being funny ever enough for British comics? Why do they all want to make documentaries? First it was Tony Robinson, who was great as Baldrick in Blackadder but is unconvincing as an archeologist or historian in Time Team. Now there’s Griff Rhys Jones, who was very funny in Alas Smith and Jones but isn’t when he’s plodding uphill in Mountains on the ABC. And Terry Jones from Monty Python’s Flying Circus tracing the history of the number one in The Story of One, plus fellow Python Michael Palin plodding all over the globe— the list is so long it ain’t funny. from Jonathon, Brighton ANYONE catch Terry Jones with his mind-numbing treatise on the number one ( The Story of One, ABC, Jan 1)? Now we know for sure who the unfunny one was in Monty Python’s Flying Circus.
Your number’s up:
Terry Jones goes that step too far.
