ORRIBLE – DOLE

Does anyone remember Orrible starring Johnny Vaughan and Ricky Grover?  It was broadcast by the BBC back in 2001, unfortunately it only ran for one series, owing to the fact that it was hammered by the critics at the time.  I think it’s fair to say that unless you grew up on a council estate you probably wouldn’t get it, hence it getting panned by the mainstream critics.  Let’s face it, any comedy show depicting working class lads indulging in low level crime and sniffing charlie is bound to get hammered by the critics isn’t it?

The show was centred on the antics and adventures of Johnny Vaughan’s character, taxi driver and wannabe small-time criminal Paul and his loyal mate Sean, played by comedian Ricky Grover.  James Buckley (The Inbetweeners) also made his acting debut in the show starring as Sean’s son.  So for those who did not get a chance to watch the original series sit back and enjoy one of the funniest scenes from the show, I am sure you will all agree that it’s brilliant, well I’ve always loved it anyway!
