Despite all rumours, this is definately a British production and for that fact is allowed on The Box.
Originally transmitted: 19th January 1985, Channel 4, 11pm.
Birmingham comedian, Jasper Carrott travels in this documentary to America to see if he can attract new audiences accross the river. This is a mix of stand-up and sketch comedy - just what we expect of Carrott.
This is a rare edition to the normal value of Carrott, and is strongly reccomended to fans of his comedy.
Condition is fantastic considering the age of the VHS copy owned. This has been ripped from a 1986 commercial release by Castle Vision Video - I took the decision to edit the ident out for certain reasons.
What is quite ironic about this period is that Carrott had a bad time in America, and in his 90's material he often made jokes about the Amercians (in nasty structures).
An Opix Films production for Channel 4.
