Barry and Garry run a pub in the West End of London. Each week their friend, certified cockney geezer Dodgy Phil, comes up with scheme to attract more punters. For example, turning the pub into a Michael Caine-themed restaurant, or making it a pub-cum-bookshop. Usually this ends in disaster and the pub is destroyed. In the meantime numerous film references are droppedWritten by
Based on an original radio series on BBC Radio 4, broadcast in 1998 (four 15 minute episodes) and 1999 (four 30 minute episodes). On the radio, the part of Dodgy Phil was played by John Thomson, and for the second series, Alistair McGowan took over the role of Garry from Peter Serafinowicz. See more »
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.
