Blackadder II (Comedy Based On The Hit BBC Sitcom, This Play Adapts Four Episodes For The Stage.)

Comedy by Ben Elton & Richard Curtis Directed by Kath Ashworth

Set in the 16th Century royal court of Queen Elizabeth, we follow Lord Blackadder as a courtier attempting to win the Queen's favour while avoiding having his head cut off.

Aided and abetted by clueless servant Baldrick and grudging friend Lord Percy, Edmund Blackadder schemes and plots his way into the Queen's good books. Over the course of the play, Blackadder gains a new servant, Bob, accidentally beheads the wrong member of aristocracy, and has a heavy-drinking boys night out. He also finds himself in debt to the Bishop of Bath & Wells until coming up with an idea so cunning you could brush your teeth with it.

With Queenie surrounded by loyal Sir Melchett and Nurse Patsy, the Elizabethan court is a world leader in sycophants, backstabbers, plots and schemes and Edmund Blackadder is determined to be the centre of them all.

Oh, What A Carry On! (Classic Comedy Clips And Behind-The-Scenes Stories)

They've been Cruising, they've been Camping. They've even been …Up the Khyber; but now the beloved Carry Ons are coming to you!

The official Carry On historian, Robert Ross, presents an affectionate salute to celebrate sixty glorious years of the Carry On films, taking you behind the scenes of a comedy institution.

In the March of 1958 cameras started rolling on a cheap and cheerful black and white comedy about the madcap exploits of a bunch of hapless National Service recruits. The film was Carry On Sergeant and its popularity kick-started British film's most endearing franchise.

Nothing sums up the deliciously bawdy and raucous British sense of humour more than the Carry Ons. For sixty years, their heady mix of innuendo, pratfalls, and love of a damned good time has entertained millions around the world.

The flaring nostrils of Kenneth Williams, the crumpled leer of Sid James, the cheeky giggle of Barbara Windsor, and the bespectacled high camp of Charles Hawtrey remain a vital part of the national bloodstream. This is the Carry On story. Naughty but nice…

Robert Ross is the foremost authority on the stars and history of British comedy, and has written many books dedicated to the Carry Ons, including The Carry On Companion, The Carry On Story, Sid James: Cockney Rebel, and Mr. Carry On, the authorised biography of Carry On producer Peter Rogers. Robert's many other books include The Goodies Rule OK, Benny Hill: Merry Master of Mirth, Fawlty Towers: Fully Booked, and Steptoe and Son: Any Old Iron. His many television appearances range from Blue Peter and The One Show, to Legends: Terry-Thomas, and When Comedy Goes Horribly Wrong. His first play, Jeepers Creepers, concerned the lives and loves of Lauretta and Marty Feldman, and was directed by Terry Jones at the Leicester Square Theatre in the West End of London.

"Robert is a one-man encyclopedia of the very best of British comedy." Jim Dale MBE
