Roaring Laughter

When was the last time something had me Rolling in the Aisles?


Friday Afternoon half past One – I’m sat watching a pair of Old Comic Masters at their Utmost best – Eric Sykes and Tommy Cooper (without his trademark Fez) in “The Plank”

The two comedians play two bungling workmen assigned to finish off a house build – and go looking for a plank of wood to finish the job after one of them uses their last piece for firewood.

Seems straightforward doesn’t it? But from the arrival at the timber yard to scrapes with other workmen, The plank seems to evade them…all until the end of the film

Of all the fine comic actors in the show…and the plank…who steals the show?  The cat that appears throughout the film – the last scene is chaotic – pure Sykes – and you’ll see why if you watch it – I wont give away the punchline!
