Bob Monkhouse: The Last Stand 09:38 - Nov 21 with 475 viewsThrasher6

BBC Four tonight at 21.00. A must watch for anyone interested in comedy.....very very good

Cameras capture the quiz show host and comedian in the summer of 2003 - just months before his death - as he entertains a room full of fellow comics with stand-up, chat and a masterclass in his craft. The night became the stuff of legend among comedians, but was never transmitted in full until recently

I remember seeing him do a late night TV show when I was in my teens. I'd only known him from the golden shot but there was nothing else on so watched him do his cabaret act. I'd never laughed so much in my life.

It’s stunning and utterly brilliant. A master craftsman and, underneath that oily gameshow host persona, a thoroughly lovely human being.

Very moving and also fûcking hilarious - his comic timing was just sublime. Should be compulsory viewing for some of the excuses for stand-ups on Live at the Apollo lately.

His “blue” shows were legendary.

Never seen them but I can imagine they would be. Going to be trouble in our house, Bob going up against the celebrity jungle.

It’s been on YouTube for years. It really is brilliant. Those comedians who had to learn their craft by touring the pubs and clubs are a different class to those directly parachuted onto an endless stream of panel shows.

The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.

Yes seen this too. He has an amazing collection of VHS videos. Was this the one where he would document times and dates of things to watch and record?

Thank you, goodnight and bollocks

Brilliant. I saw him in the Stoneleigh (I think) with my parents when I was much younger. I can't remember anything except laughing my nuts off. I loved it....mam was horrified, she thought he was 100% 'clean'

“I want to die peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather. not screaming in terror like his passengers.”

“Sex is great at 74, especially when you live at 72”.

Never saw his show but my old man said he saw a set that had people in tears and then came back and did a late night “blue” show that was the funniest thing he’d ever seen.
