Classic Comedy: Mr Don and Mr George

"I don't want to go to War. I'm too tall to die!"

Mr Don (Morray Hunter) and Mr George (Jack Docherty) originally were part of the sketch show "Absolutely" which ran from 1989 to 1993. The comedy could best be described as surreal, with the two characters inhabiting their own strange world which only just touches on ours.

The show, although very funny, was considered just too strange by most critics and only ran for six episodes. It is a shame that more episodes weren't made and that those that were have rarely been shown on UK television.

This gets my vote as one of the most underrated comedy shows of all time.
