    Who?
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    I'm very surprised and disappointed!!! They were two characters created by Peter Cook and Dudley Moore(hopefully people know this pair) which featured on some famous audio comedy albums such as Ad Nauseum and Derek and Clive Live.

    The 3 albums: Derek & Clive Live, Come Again & Ad Nauseam are without doubt the funniest & most offensive material ever committed to vinyl. It's very, very strong stuff: racist, sexist and blasphemous (Peter Cook waxing lyrical about getting "the horn" for the recently dead Pope laid on his catafalque because someone had gone to the trouble of plucking out his nostril hair is sublimely offensive), but it is underscored with a dark satirical intelligence.

    It would be very easy to be po-faced & say the humour is beyond the pale, but it passes the comedy test: it makes you laugh.

    My favourite line? Probably Cook's eulogy of the Russian health service: "The health service is fabulous, as soon as you're ill they kill you; there's no f*cking about with cures."

    I'm just listening to Ad Nauseam now actually (with headphones on, it's not my girlfriend's cup of tea!). I love Cook's impression of Bruce Forsyth:

    "Let's have some c*** from the audience. Hello, c*** from the audience? Come in & make a fool of youself!"

    Never heard any Derek and Clive material - Peter Cook was generally pretty funny, although I never had a lot of time for Dudley Moore. Last thing I ever saw him in (Cook) was that Comic Strip episode where Rik Mayall and Ade Edmondson played (somewhat ironically) alcoholics, and he kept borrowing their "fairy liquid" to clean up the mess from his murdering escapades next door.

    Sounds like "Mr Jolly Lives Next Door".

    Yeah, I think that was it. I may be confusing it with another one, but I think it's the one where they get forcibly contracted to "take out" Nicholas Parsons. Very funny actually - most of the early Comic Strips were, although they seemed to deteriorate some years down the track.

    Yeah, that's the one: Rik & Ade run an escort agency (with themselves as the escorts) & they steal an envelope filled with money & the instruction to "take out" Nicholas Parsons that was intended for Mr Jolly (Cook) the hitman who lives next door.

    I love Peter Richradson as Mr Lovebucket the gangster who hires Mr Jolly,

    "Last week someone wrote on the back of my car 'Mr Lovebucket is a w@nker'. Now I'm married, so not only is it very wrong; it's also very unkind."
