Podcast 270: This is our Christmas Everest, Part Fourteen – The Les Dennis Laughter Show

by | Dec 14, 2020

Day 14 of this stupid Advent calendar sees your heroes watching The Les Dennis Laughter Show from 22nd December 1990. Ian is far from impressed with the programme, which delighted Edward who – uniquely among these festive selections – has chosen the episode. It’s pretty thin gruel all round however, in the spirit of good will to all men, Les Dennis receives a full and unconditional pardon, conditional on us not ever having to watch this again.

Why is Gazza unsuitable for Milk Tray adverts? Is two-and-a-half minutes enough time to really nail a yo-yo demonstration on national television? And what the bloody hell is the point of any of this? Almost none of these questions will be answered, though all are addressed. You can watch Les here.

Tomorrow morning things are getting star-studded, with Christmas Night With The Stars, from 1972.
