All Gas and Gaiters 1967-1971 British classic sitcom

by ,

There were quite few sitcoms that used unlikely themes as the basis for humour, but decision to make a bishop the main character for sitcom in All Gas and Gaiters was rather revolutionary. First of all the world of a bishop is rather limited - there are only few people in his environment, there are certain topics that can't be used in the humour (he is a priest after all), there are certain templates that can't be used. Yet in case of All Gas and Gaiters Edwin Apps and Pauline Devaney managed to avoid all the traps and make a really entertaining sitcom out of idea that seemed unsuitable for comedy.

Comedy Series Blog - we search all the interesting (and sometimes not that interesting) comedy series from around the world. Some of them might be slightly better than the others, but in comedy there are no strict rules - sometimes less funny series, but made with skillful touch could be a hit. On the other hand there are series that try too hard to be funny and lose on the plots and characters building.
