I’ll take old “looks nothing like” Boycie, back centre. He’ll fucking monster your pre-plonkered Rodney.

Boycie looks like some kind of 1940s Poverty Row studio's ersatz version of Clark Gable. Who's the louche guy in the hat on the far right meant to be, Trigger? Eyyyy Dave, I'm sweeping here, whaddya want from me?

Rodney looks like a mutant cross of James Acaster and one of those little children that have that disease where they age really quickly and end up looking like a space alien. Who on earth is the woman on the far left meant to be? Cassandra? The Rodney looks more like Cassandra.

The Albert is the best I've ever seen.

The people behind this shitshow are now being sued by John Sullivan's estate.  Amazed it's taken this long, to be honest.

https://www.chortle.co.uk/news/2020/01/20/45214/stop_this_hooky_del_boy_show!

That article lead me to looking up this video of a Blackadder dining experience.  Fuck me!  My first thought was that the guy playing Edmond must do a spot on impression, given that he doesn't look one iota like Rowan Atkinson (he'd make a half decent David Brent though), but no, they don't even show him 'in character', which leads me to believe that he's shite and he's only playing the lead role because he happens to be the manager of the company.

I also enjoyed the guy trying to play Percy, which amounted to putting on a high pitched posh voice and listing several Elizabethan era things, such as archery.  On the plus side, the woman playing Queenie wasn't too bad; passable at least.  The bit at the end, where they all mock laugh, is the cringiest bit of all.  What a sham.

Well, now I just really want to see an episode of Only Fools And Horses with Charlie Day playing Uncle Albert.

Most of them have got a few lines to say or some spiel but what's Cassandra going to do at these? While you're eating your steak and chips, she'll pop up behind your shoulder to talk about her miscarriage?

It really would be fantastic to organise a CaB meet for one of these things. Guaranteed laughs.

I also assume at some point after paying their original graphic designer they were forced to rebrand from "Only Fools the Dining Experience".

She'll put your coat on by mistake and drop you off at the wrong house after the show.

Fucking hell, that truly is one of the least accurate impressions of anyone I've ever seen. Really quite remarkable that he gets paid to do that.

It helps that she's the only one who seems to have actually seen Blackadder II and thus knows who she's impersonating.

God, the 'bits of badly cut felt' beards are really depressing. The guy playing Blackadder describes his character as both "getting up to his usual tricks" and "getting up to his old tricks". i.e. he doesn't really know what the fuck he's talking about.
