British Culture:Variety Shows and laughs.

We like people just the way they are when it comes to entertainment. The faces are unchanged and so are their bodies, there is rarely Ken or Barbie we loved the Roly Poly’s dancers on the Les Dawson Show they were so much fun and because they danced a lot they began to lose weight so that became a problem. Being eccentric is just a part of life in Britain. Even New’s Casters on TV have their own character. Once they all spoke in a real posh voice that soon changed and all the accents from around Britain began to be heard.

People are allowed to be themselves the culture is so different to the USA I really missed the difference like the Good Old Days Show Les Dawson – The Good Old Days (1983)  here are a few fun comedians Larry Grayson in The Good old Days 1976.

The Good Old Days is a BBC television light entertainment program produced by Barney Colehan which ran from 1953 to 1983.It was performed at the Leeds City Varieties and recreated an authentic atmosphere of the Victorian–Edwardian music hall with songs and sketches of the era performed by present-day performers in the style of the original artistes.  Hilda Baker in “The Good Old Days”18/3/1976   Good Old Days Show   Hinge & Bracket on “The Good Old Days” (First Appearance)

The audience dressed in period costume and joined in the singing, especially “Down at the Old Bull and Bush” which closed the show. The show was compered by Leonard Sachs, who introduced the acts with great hyperbolic aplomb from a desk situated at the side of the stage. In the course of its run it featured about 2,000 performers.
