" 'Allo, 'allo. Zis ees London calling Nighthawk. Over."
The Vulgar Britcom Mailing List
"London Calling" is a newly-born mailing list for the discussion of that unique British artform, the vulgar situation comedy.
This page is still very much under construction. Forgive!
First of all, they are sitcoms made in the UK. On a stretch, I might even include products from other countries made with a Britcom sensibility. Secondly, the writers seem incredibly obsessed with sex. Expect double entendre, suspenders, dropped pants, phallic objects, big-busted ladies, camp characters, toilet references, and sexual innnuendo. Men with face-fungus in ludicrous drag and wimmin in drag with false moutaches are practically de-rigeur. Vulgar Britcoms are, in fact, easy to spot.
I've received a couple of questions about the name of the list. The main reference is that "London Calling" is the disembodied voice Rene in 'Allo 'Allo is forever being radioed by. What made me select the name is that "London Calling" was also the name of Noel Coward's first revue. While neither lewd nor crude nor a writer of sitcoms, Coward had a style of particularly British and particularly camp humour that has a lot to do with my devotion to Britcom. Hence the name.
I hope you leestened very carefullee. I wrote eet only wonce. Now, I must go and merge with ze night like a shadow.
