My comedy hero is back with a vengeance. Oh Swiss Tony – where have you been!?
Yes that’s right, Swiss Tony himself is back with Fast show 2011 courtesy of fosters.co.uk every Thursday at 1pm.
And with the Fast Show of course, comes the fast-talking suave, sophisticated and bequiffed super second-hand car salesman – Swiss Tony himself, with his sage advice for his assistant and protégé; long suffering Paul!
Here’s a quote from the great man himself:
“Of course, as you know, I’m a very keen fisherman myself. You know, I’ve often thought that going fishing was very much like making love to a beautiful woman. First of all, clean and inspect your tackle, carefully pull back your rod cover, and remove any dirt or gunge that may have built up whilst not in use. Then, extend your rod to its full length, and check that there are no kinks or any wear. Particularly at the base, where the grip is usually applied. Make sure you’ve got a decent float, the appropriate bait, and that there’s plenty of shot in your bag.”
Just in case you have no idea what I’m talking about – then do yourself a big favour and search for a few Fast Show videos from the original series during the late 90s and tune in to the news stuff at Fosters. I promiseyou won’t regret it – even the second hand stuff.
As Tony he once said:
“Checking the details of a second-hand car is very much like making love to a beautiful woman. First of all, verify her year of origin. She may look like she rolled off the production line in 1990 but who’s to say the fellow before you didn’t give her a good spraying?”
You get the picture; his advice is largely the same. But there can be inexplicable humour in repeating the same thing over andover. If you don’t think so – just ask Vic and Bob.
After all, they wouldn’t let it lie would they!?
