Steptoe and Son.

Firstly I would like to thank Galton and Simpson with out whom 50s 60s and 70s Britain would not have been as blessed as they have been with superb comedy. in Hancock and Steptoe & Son. Sticking with Steptoe and Son Wilfred Bramble and Harry H Corbett play the Father and Son rag and bone men duo to perfection. Series 5 and 6 show them at their peak and this Audio collection is top class. sit back get comfy and enjoy British Comedy at its best . 😂

Excellent as always had me 😂😆😂

This exceptionally funny father n son duo, the poor rag n bone men, are at their very best in this 5/6 series - has you laughing from beginning to end!
This is British comedy at its very best, like they say, they just don’t write stuff like this anymore!
(Prob because 1/4 of it wouldn’t be allowed 😮😜)
If you liked to watch them on tv then you won’t be disappointed in this audiobook - u can just close your eyes and imagine, it takes you right back.
Well worth it IF you love a good laugh

Just be aware, some comments/saying MAY offend some ppl, but remember it was filmed back in the 60’s!
