Iconic BBC Sketch Show The Real McCoy Comes To Town
The Memorial Hall welcomes comedy cult hero Mr Frazier and friends from BBC’s iconic sketch show The Real McCoy next month. The show, which helped launch careers for many black comedians including Richard Blackwood and Robbie Gee aired on BBC from 1991 to 1996 but Mr Frazier saw his career first take off on two other iconic shows, Fry & Laurie and Red Dwarf.
Over the past couple of years there has been campaigns to bring back the show which proved to pave way for black comedians who were previously over-looked but the BBC have decided against releasing the series’ on DVD, the demand has been vocal, leading to this tour taking place where the hilarious Mr Frazier will no doubt be singing his favourite reggae songs.
The show, which takes place on the 15th December is shaping up to be a cracker, especially with the triple treat that is Robbie Gee, Curtis Walker and Eddie Nestor on the bill you might want to snap up tickets ASAP. They are on sale now from here.
