How a Lighting Entrepreneur Had His 'Light Bulb' Moment
Cynthia Papa and Tom Papa during The Hollywood Radio And Television Society's 1st Annual Roast In Honor Of Jeff Zucker at Century Plaza Hotel in Century City, CA, United States. June 09, Licence .. Chopard Gentleman's Night. Jan 2, Writers and Directors Jim Abrahams, David Zucker, Jerry Zucker Starring Robert Hays London Gentleman, or wait. No, no, no. Hold on. Apr 28, The dubstep triad Gentlemen's Club is back and brings a whole new sound to the table. Their "Want U" EP is out now on Buygore.
Acclaimed comedy The League Of Gentlemen returned for a brief three episode Zucker Papa Gentleman this week. Last seen on the small screen indid the new episodes live up to expectation or was it a case of one visit too many? There really was nothing like it when it first appeared on our screens in It was one minute laugh out loud funny then equally There were touchstones for this kind of sketch humour dating back to Spike Milligan and the Monty Python team but these were but small echoes which were twisted into a show that was ahead of its time.
After three series, a film and a live show the comedy troupe decided to go off onto other projects becoming some of the most influential writers, directors and actors of their generation so when it was announced that they were Zucker Papa Gentleman return to the fictional town of Royston Vasey it was met by both excitement and trepidation. Would the show live up its past glories? Would it be presented the format of the first two series or the lysergic and divisive third?
Would they still be able to shock? This last question being the most important as not only have the troupe, and in particular Pemberton and Shearsmith, gone on to make shows that were far more disturbing Psychoville and the incredible Inside No. Some of the original characters are particularly problematic with Barbara the transgender taxi driver and Papa Lazarou the wife stealing gypsy which sees Shearsmith done up in blackface being the most obvious candidates.
Just because social media is now far more prevalent does that mean
Zucker Papa Gentleman the character was deemed more ok back in the nineties? Is the character racist or just an evil clown? Far more extreme, far more unsettling. Your reaction to the character depends upon how you view him and he is sure to still cause some debate please leave comments below.
Then we come to Zucker Papa Gentleman. The transgender taxi driver with hairy knuckles and a big heart. Barbara was always more of a liaison between the main players taking them around the town and helping us laugh along the way. The issue of transgender rights is particularly prevalent at this current moment in time so it was of some interest of how the team would approach the character.
This moment felt like an acknowledgment by TLOG that they can no longer write the character the same way in as they did in but also allowed them to still slightly push buttons and skirt a thin line between laughter and offence.
So what of the rest of the series? This new trip into the bowels of Royston Vasey was both full of nodding references to the past plus a clearing of the slate. As openers go this helped define the show as the people involved were obviously older but they were still somehow stuck in the vacuum Zucker Papa Gentleman Vasey. The humour in this
Zucker Papa Gentleman was also a big sign that TLOG were going to stick to their usual style of crassness mixed with meta.
Once we arrive in Vasey and Barbara takes Val and Benjamin to the home of the Dentons we are treated to that theme tune and the always wonderful background sight gags.
They are gags that are so obvious when seen but it takes a
Zucker Papa Gentleman kind of brain to create them in the first place. Now we have settled in and throughout the episodes some old favourites make a return in various story arcs.
Tubbs and Edwards are seen to be alive after narrowly missing the train that we assumed had killed them and are now squatting in a tower block of flats still surrounded by their special things. Geoff, Mike and Brian take part in one of Zucker Papa Gentleman most heartbreaking sections of the entire series. The basic overall arc is that there is to be a boundary change thus making
Zucker Papa Gentleman Vasey now part of a larger area and Bernice has accidentally signed forms giving the green light for frackers to
Zucker Papa Gentleman in and drill the land.
Now this is the point where TLOG team could have easily made entire series a satire on current politics and especially a recent referendum. Royston Vasey with its poor, working class and mostly white population Zucker Papa Gentleman easily have been turned a Leave heartland.
No more so is this portrayed by Tubbs and Edwards themselves. Edward himself actually looks like the deviant offspring of Farage and Gove but there is more than an obvious stereotyping at play here. Someone who sis standing up against big business and greedy councils who wish to push the poor out of the areas that they have lived all their lives. Duality is key in TLOG and it is not only in the narrative but also in the characters that are on our screen.
You feel a deep disliking for Aunty Val for what she is doing to Benjamin then you feel empathy as she realises what she has done, saves the day and ends the show giving Benjamin a loving embrace. Is Val a victim of mental abuse by her spouse and is that why she is so misguided in her attempts to bring him back from the dead?
Zucker Papa Gentleman of Zucker Papa Gentleman most upsetting storylines from this series was Restart officer Pauline. Throughout the four series Pauline has become far more than just a pantomime villain.
She has shown a real ugliness to her character but also lots of depth and love thanks to her relationship with, her now husband, Mickey. It later turns out that Zucker Papa Gentleman is suffering with dementia
Zucker Papa Gentleman this is an exercise to help her with her memory. Again you cheer ending but slowly you realise that this now means he is back to his murdering, savage self.
Should we cheer someone like that? Well as the series progressed and the Geoff, Mike, Pauline and Mickey narratives crossed we got our answer. A wave of sad tweets were sent out after the show with Pemberton himself saying it best when he tweeted:.
The skill in creating this myriad of emotions that we feel for these characters is not just down to the writing Zucker Papa Gentleman also to the incredible acting. The whole team has improved in Zucker Papa Gentleman department thanks to their careers and laced throughout are moments of pure acting gold.
Pemberton as the aforementioned Pauline and the down-right awful Pops, Shearsmith as Edward and Ollie both gaining far more empathy from the characters than what they would when looked at written down, and Gatiss who was this series stand out. As Aunty Val he went from kooky to dangerous to loving, as Les McQueen he went from downtrodden to acceptance to dreamer and as Toddy the bingo caller he stole the whole show.
This scene alone, where Gatiss delivered a truly devastating monologue about the death of his lover interspersed with suitable bingo calls, deserves to win Gatiss and the writers an award. Beautifully paced and played, the scene held you in rapt attention throughout and what could have been a plain homage to the play-on-words sketches of people like the Two Ronnies was instead an astounding display of comedy-drama pitched perfectly.
Series Four of The League Of Gentlemen proved that it can indeed be a good idea to revisit old favourites. There was a perfect balance of the familiar with the new. It was at once both locked in a time capsule and free to incorporate the world we now live in. Series Four was bold, funny, disturbing and thought provoking.
Yes we can grumble that there were only three half-hour episodes but as Benjamin said to Aunty Val before that plastic bag drifted away in the background:. All words by Simon Tucker.
