I watched my first Carry on movie in the nineties having heard of them much earlier and always wanted to watch the carryonupthekhyberquad whole series.

The carry on series is a series of 29 low budget British movies with a highly talented cast of comedians which included Frankie Howerd, Sid James, Bernard Bresslaw and others. While they are not present in all movies, they are there in most and have a displayed a wonderful combination of parody, satire and slapstick.

The movies often used British themes, like the occupation of India, the NHS and others. I got my hands on the whole series and I’ve just completed 5 of them and have 24 more to go.

While they may not be hilariously knee slapping, they are a must watch for serious comedy fans.
