The quintessential quickfire stand-up comedy show, 'The Comedians' is one of the great successes of ITV - lasting from 1971 until 1993 and making household names of many of its stars. With routines that were honed to perfection in the hard-knock territory of Northern working men’s clubs, Frank Carson, Charlie Williams, Bernard Manning, Duggie Brown, Jim Bowen and Ken Goodwin all became masters of the excruciatingly bad joke and the knowing wink. 'The Comedians' was immediately popular with the viewing public - scoring high ratings and gaining a BAFTA nomination for Best Light Entertainment Programme. This video contains all the best bits from Series Eight, first shown in 1980.
