Clarence

   (0 reviews)

Description

Clarence is a 1988 BBC situation comedy starring Ronnie Barker and Josephine Tewson, written by Ronnie Barker under the pseudonym "Bob Ferris". It was Barker's final sitcom appearance before his retirement. Barker had previously faced some criticism over his employment of a stammer for comedic effect in Open All Hours. However, the slapstick potential of a short-sighted furniture shifter must have seemed irresistible. The series was inspired by The Removals Person by Hugh Leonard, an earlier programme in the 1971 LWT comedy series, Six Dates With Barker. The house of Jane Travers, which inspired the opening titles, is located on Malvern Road in Cheltenham.

This is a much-underrated show, so funny and Clarence is a perfect character for the late Ronnie Barker to play. You need to watch all the episodes to see how the whole story unfolds and then you will grasp how subtle, but clever, the humour is.  Just brilliant, shame there wasn't a second series.
