    This is a wee bit off piste everyone, so I hope you don't mind me asking.



    I remember watching a comedy routine some years ago, involving a duo using the names of underground stations on the london underground. It was all along the lines of "We were Tooting, they were Tooting Bec" etc....

    I cant for the life of me remember who did it or whether it featured in a film..



    A shove in the right direction would be much appreciated.



    Cheers,



    Hoggers

    Hi Hoggers, I`m not certain but it sounds very much like something the Two Ronnies would do ?

    The Two Ronnies famously did a cockney opera called Tooting Carmen although I can't remember it myself. It's included on their Series 2 DVD.



    Starry x.

    Definitely The Two Ronnies.



    I seem to remember them dressed as engineers sitting on a tube. Probably scripted by Barker.



    Sounded like one of his.

    Hoggers, this was definitely Punt and Dennis, 2 of the Mary Whitehouse experience gang. I remember it well, it was recorded live in a comedy venue somewhere and it was a very clever story about a robbery and arrest using several tube stations. Brilliant, but I don't know where you'd find it now. Let me know, I'd love to see it again.
