Thanks for helping my aged brain remember who the heck that was! Everytime I see that commercial I tell my husband that I know who it is but I can't remember, I kept saying that he was British but I couldn't remember who it was, THANKS!!!

Does he still use that chirpy tune from Rigoletto as his theme tune?

The only reason being I guess (by their T&C's) that it isn't on DVD yet... Which is a travesty!

I haven't seen any of his stuff since they were originally broadcast in the 90's. But really some of it is just pure gold. Reminds me I guess why shows like Little Britain are so popular nowadays, especially with youngsters. I remember how huge Enfield was back when I was a kid and how everyone would be talking about the sketches at school.

Enfield -> Little Britain IMO... The latter just came along at the right time, I doubt it'd have been so successful if it had loftier competition.

But, he advertises Burger King over here? Most odd, will have to keep an eye out for that one.

Do you remember when Kevin and Perry went to an Oasis concert and came back putting on Mancunian accents; or when Kevin finally lost his virginity and grew up.

What about the scousers?
