This classic compilation of Les Dawson's comedy is taken from the BBC TV series The Dawson Watch and the BBC Radio 2 series Listen to Les. It includes the following sketches: 'An Appeal,' 'Mission Impossible!,' 'Getting About,' 'The Barnsley Dracula,' 'The Alien Evil!,' 'Time Off,' 'A Strange Experience,' 'The Sin of Mankind!,' 'Making Ends Meet,' and 'The Holiday.' Complete with hilarious chat from Cissie and Ada, artfully off-key piano playing, and Les's trademark mother-in-law gags, this selection is sure to appeal to all fans of the much-loved comedian. Vintage Beeb: classic albums first available as BBC LPs, now on CD and download for the first time ever. Please note: some of the humor on this recording reflects the era in which it was first broadcast.

About the Author
Due to a positive avalanche of a letter which arrived through a window tied around a brick, here is my first album. Already we've been asked to send quite a few to the Congolese rain forests where they will be used by the plate-lipped women—we're not too sure about this because they could suffer from lapsed disc! I just recently completed a tour of brick-kilns and permissive massage parlors, and broke all records—they threw the juke box at me! Hope you enjoy the album—it includes performances from both my BBC TV and Radio shows and will give you some idea why Variety is dead!
