Description - Three Of A Kind (Vintage Beeb) by Kim Fuller
Broadcast over three series between 1981 and 1983, Three of a Kind made stars out of Tracey Ullman and Lenny Henry, and helped writers such as Rob Grant, Doug Naylor, Ruby Wax and Ian Hislop hone their considerable comedic talents. Full of quickfire quips and silly sketches, as well as spoof songs, it was hugely popular for its gentle humour, sarcasm and witty satire. This compilation soundtrack includes many memorable sketches including 'Aussie Blue Peter' and 'Woman Newsreader'; parody songs from the likes of the Ruinettes, Dollop and Cliff Copperfield; and a host of familiar characters from the TV series including The Reverend Nat. West, Old Scrunge, Roz, Rasta rap star Fred Dread and smooth charmer Medallion Man. Vintage Beeb: classic albums first available as BBC LPs, now on CD and download for the first time ever.
