Goodbye Mongrels

Now, I like many things: pies, custard, warm beds, tea, a comfy sofa, bums and real ale, being only a few of them. However I would rarely describe myself as fan of anything. It seems too general and brings images to mind of insane people stealing panties from washing lines.


… in the case of Mongrels I am a silly, girlish and panty stealing fan. This is why the news today that the BBC have decided not to recommission it, is particularly sad. Especially for those people who have worked so incredibly hard on it. Thanks to them we finally got a funny,  new piece of comedy from the BBC.  Now we’re left with Mrs Brown’s Shits and Pox the Week.

Anyway, here are the brilliant Mongrels at last year’s comedy prom.

Back in the early days of this Century, I made some money by saying the odd funny thing in public. On one of these occasions a fellow funny talker told me that I should write a blog (because that was the sort of thing funny talking people did back then.) Now, I’m not the sort of person who does things the easy way, so I rejected all the ready made blogging platforms and started my own website. Since then it’s become a repository for whatever stuff is bubbling out of my brains and a directory of various podcasts and videos that I’ve made with my friends and is completely unnecessary.
