As readers of those pages know, I dearly love The Goes Incorrect Present. It is a BBC-TV sequence made by the identical individuals who created The Play That Goes Incorrect, which I’ve written about on this web site just a few instances. It was a success in London and Broadway and toured to Los Angeles the place I noticed it — a play ostensibly placed on by a mediocre theatre firm, the Cornley Drama Society, in the midst of England the place just about every part…nicely, goes mistaken. The present was so successful that they’ve finished a number of follow-up performs. And in addition this sequence.
The TV sequence is finished by the identical individuals, as soon as once more enjoying members of this identical mediocre Cornley Drama Society from the center of England. And supposedly they placed on a brand new half-hour play every week (a distinct style every time) that’s broadcast all through England. The reveals are a pleasure and sometimes outstanding. A few them are tour-de-force: one is a courtroom drama known as “A Trial to Watch, and the opposite (a Tennessee Williams-style play set within the sizzling, steamy Deep South titled “90 Levels”) is sort of Shakespearean in its bodily comedy, taking slapstick ito an “oh-my-god” degree.
For those who don’t love bodily humor, The Goes Incorrect Present isn’t for you. Simply know, although, that that is bodily comedy finished as an artwork kind by sensible craftsmen on the peak of their abilities.
The primary season must be out there on YouTube, and most of season two will be discovered on a web site known as DailyMotion.com. You may as well get it on Amazon Prime, although it is not included and has a separate payment.
That is their Christmas particular from Season One, “The Spirit of Christmas” (with my favourite half, the ‘Nistle and Nostle Track.’) The place just about every part…nicely, goes mistaken.
