Porridge Motel

Open All Hours.
  [vote for,

A cosy nest for fans of gentle British comedy (punnery, word play, spoonerisms, self deprecation and silly noises).

Do some pretend porridge and while away the hours with like-minded souls, lamenting the passing of comedy giants Benny, Spike, and now Ronnie Barker.


And now, it's 'goodnight' from me.

I often think what a sad loss to british comedy was the early death of Richard Beckinsale http://www.porridge.org.uk/richard.html

       I know there is some division of opinion over whether Benny Hill is in the same 'class' as some of his peers, but for his Fred Scuttle character alone I think he deserves to be called a comedy giant.

       Oh, I saw "motel" in the title and thought "Crossroads"

       Do fans of gentle British comedy occasionally find themselves on the road?   

       This here for the bed & breakfast minded?
