Not Only… But Also

You know, I go to the theatre to be entertained.  I don’t want to see plays about rape, sodomy and drug addiction…I can get all that at home.

Not satirical, just a good old fashion gag, from the godfather of British Satire – Peter Cook

Peter Cook

I’d rather not quote other people, but I find it hard not to with Peter; so many people have great things to say about him.  So, from Stephen Fry we have this testament to Peter’s greatness:

“There was the famous occasion when Peter addressed a group of revellers at a lunch celebrating 25 years of Private Eye. Almost everyone who was there, myself included, will tell you it was the funniest, most brilliant speech they had ever heard. But ask us to recall the jokes and there will be a complete blank. Peter’s funniest performances were generally of this impromptu, unscripted variety.”

’nuff said
