“Harry Enfield’s TV prog of the 90s. Available on DVD, but these Cholmondley-Warner (pronounced Chumley) slots were a sketch each week in a mixed sketch show, similar to The Fast Show.”

“Where the devils me intended victim offted to?” hahahaha, this stuff is my fav from this show.

Later they learned that the guy’s rap sheet, when it came in exhausted the paper in the fax machine. He was wanted on several warrants and previous offenses included assault with a deadly weapon and assault on police officers. They had done really excellent defensive waza…
