Did I laugh? yes mate, no mate, course mate!!
4 October 2007 | by simonporter-1See all my reviews

When I first saw "World of pub" I laughed so much that I missed about half of the first episode,this then happened with all the others I'm glad to say. I hadn't heard the radio series before seeing the T.V show but still feel (after having heard them) the scene was only enhanced by the "morose" acting of all involved.

This series will teach you everything you need to know about pub life in the U.K including "The Pub Olympics", "The Cockney Code" and "Drinking tactics" to mention a few things. Anything can happen in the pub and it always ends up in a fire!! If you've seen this I don't need to tell you how funny it is but if you haven't buy it or borrow your mates DVD and treat yourself to 3 hours of top British comedy, I don't think you'll be disappointed.
