THE ROLY POLYS - Tap Dance "Anything Goes"



Les Dawson: It was a sweltering day, and I was parched. I went to the nearest house and knocked on the door. The woman who answered was as ugly as a sack of chisels; I asked her 'do you think the woman next door could spare me a glass of water?'

  2. I never did see Les Dawson live, but I must confess to having seen the Roly Polys live on one of the Blackpool piers ... my only excuse is that we used to get free tickets and used to go along for the bar and to watch the great never-washed at play!

  3. Les Dawson was one of my favourites ... he reminded me of my late mother-in-law -- or rather one of the characters he played was exactly like her!

  4. Ah, the days when it was legal to laugh at the less-than-slim. They are about to introduce a law here where, if you are overheard describing someone as 'fat' within earshot, you could be subject to a fine, imprisonment - or both. I blame MacDonalds (TM).

    1. Are you SERIOUS? Would Fat Boy Slim (the Brighton beach bum) be immediately clapped in irons?

  6. You aren't exactly "politically correct", are ya? (But you sure are funny!) I got a kick out of both the joke and the video. (I wonder... did they have to reinforce the stage...?)
