Three Of A Kind

12 x 30 minute episodes

Originally a 1967 revue series to advertise the talents of Lulu, Mike Yarwood and Ray Fell, the show was revived in the 1980s as a showcase for Lenny Henry, Tracey Ullman and David Copperfield (not the American magician).

Widely acclaimed, it did much for the TV careers of Henry and Ullman (Copperfield went to the cabaret circuit), not to mention those in the gag-writing backroom, amongst them Rob Grant and Doug Naylor (who went on to create Red Dwarf) and Ian Hislop.
