There are very few comedy shows which could persuade a nation that "nice" was a good catchphrase. But the brilliantly observed jazz man did just this.
It is observational comedy at its best and few can watch Ralph's desperate antics to get closer to his gardener, Ted, without squirming.
It offered a new form for the sketch show and injected life into a jaded format.
The stage version promises to be just as fast-paced with all the favourite characters, so book your seat now.
