Unedited rushes of one of his "Variety Madhouse" shows from 1979, soon to be taken over by Russ Abbott

I just put this up on Youtube when I noticed it had disappeared from there.

I liked the one where he dressed up as Shirley Bassey and fell down the stairs.

Today's Sun headline is "Freddie Starr Joins His Hamster". Leaving aside the issue of whether he actually ever ate any hamsters (which he apparently definitely didn't), surely nobody ever suggested it was his own hamster? That would have been barbaric.

Joins hamster where? In heaven, or simply in death? I’m pretty sure hamster heaven and shit comedian heaven are two separate places, and even if they’re not the hamster probably has some sort of afterlife restraining order in place to ensure any such “joining” would be forever impossible.

I'll always remember my auntie guffawing at the sketch where he plays a car park attendant with a limp. Of course, you couldn't make a joke like that any more because of the bloody PC brigadeuniversal automation of municipal car parks.

His act as a filmed singer slowing down and speeding up was crap.  Now, if he'd been trying to mime to a track changing speed...

He didn't though, it was a switcheroo. Starr actually threw rice over the audience that he grabbed from a partitioned section in the box.

I hope so. It’d be pretty weird to get to heaven and have to spend it with the masses of cows, pigs, chickens and whatever I’ve eaten over a lifetime. It’d be too noisy and as to the smell...








... well, they’d just have to put up with that.

I liked him when I was 9, around the time of the Audience With special and his pre-watershed ITV sketch show. Would have loved to have seen one of his live videos with the big old enticing "18" sticker then. Of course when I picked one up from a charity shop about 10 years later it was unwatchable, or unfinishable at least. R.I.P.
