This is classic British comedy in slapstick format. Think Monty Python for the non-wierd. Think upmarket Two Ronnies, plus 2. Think Rowan Atkinson, Mel Smith, Griff Rhys Jones, and our own darling Pamela Stephenson, wife to the King of roughest Scotish humour, Billy Connolly.

These four folks banded together in the mid-70's to form a new era of comedy, exploring new areas of wit and satire, with some blatant, almost American humour to add a bit of variety and spice to the otherwise quite dry humour of our Colonial Motherland.

Not having seen a lot of NtNON in it's hey-day, I was quite taken with the chance to see some now, with a fresh perspective and some more educated wits. And I was impressed... this is some really good stuff. Of a similar era to "The Young Ones", but with a smoother 'taste', I was quite taken with these fresh-faced comedic-trailblasers.

Overall, there is some great laughs in here, and if you like British wit, or jokes that don't just slap you with a fish and start laughing, this could be well worth investigating. I was quite entertained, and it has earned it's rightful place between the Billy Connolly and the the full Monty Python Collection.
