Politically incorrect comedy from the 70s 80s and 90s

May 10, 2023 — BarryK

This blog post is a bit of light relief from the usual. A relative was talking about investment agents disappearing with all your money, which reminded me of a comedy skit from the late-80s to early-90s.

The Australian TV show was "Fast Forward" and two comedians Steve Vizard and Peter Moon did skits in which they were doing TV ads. In one series of skits, they were Indian carpet salesmen, in another they were investment advisors. I remembered a line from the latter, Peter Moon saying "We will look after your money like it is our own".

I tried to find that particular skit, found the Fast Forward YouTube channel, also found this article from 2018, lamenting the demise of politically-incorrect comedy:

I couldn't find that investment-advisor skit, but here is the Fast Forward channel:

It is crude cheap humour, some might even say it barely rates as humour, but I do recall having a chuckle or two back in the day. I remember "Inga from Sweden" -- better not post the link here, it is very rude.

Anyway, back onto EasyOS development.
